The Black PhoneThe Black Phone by Joe Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Since the movie will be released soon, I decided to read this short story today. It didn't take long because everything happens very quickly.

Boy is sitting outside a store drinking a can of his favourite drink. Man struggles to put his shopping in the back of his van. Boy tries to help. Black balloons make an appearance...

Yeah, it's quick and awful. What Finney goes through is scary, but this kid is a fighter. Really enjoyed how trippy the whole story turned out to be. Half the time I was trying to figure out what was real and what was illusion. Also, the actual black phone was an intriguing concept, but that ending was killer.

I really enjoyed this twisted tale of cruelty and murder because Finney's voice was strong and kept me interested. Looking forward to watching the movie because it looks like they changed quite a bit.
