    I finally got my revenge on Sweden. For most of my life I?ve been bombarded with newspapers and radio telling me how Sweden is so much much very much absolutely completely better than Britain at practically everything. Here?s some random quotes from the BBC news archive : ?Swe...

    You know that bit at the beginning of Amadeus, where Salieri has composed this very uninspired little march, which he and the Emperor play for Mozart? Then Mozart sits down at the keyboard and says, hm, that's not quite right, is it? And he messes around with it for a couple of minutes...

    Yo, lesson for you, Stephenie: this is how you write a fucking vampire novel. So you can run and tell THAT. ...

    (A) 86% | Extraordinary Notes: Tenderness with ferocity. It's lonely, desperate people living in ashen desolation. The grey makes the red stand out. ...

    Soiled?soiled and a bit emotionally off-kilter. That?s the best I can do to describe how this book made me feel. It?s dark, morose and...really?really...REALLY?creepy. Not strange sounds and creaking doors creepy. Creepylike that "overly affectionate" uncle who stares at...

    After watching the Swedish movie this book is based on, I thought it was an intensely creepy film and promptly got the book to check out the full story. I figured that the planned American film version would be a pale shadow of the original because there?s no way that a Hollywood mov...

    Imagine for a moment that you were at an event, like the 1995 Rugby World cup where South Africa both hosted and won. Imagine being there in the heat of that moment - the cheer and ebulation. That light, almost unreal sense that the world has faded away and there is only that moment. N...

    As seen on The Readventurer I can't even find the words to describe how much I LOVED this novel. But let me start by warning Twilight lovers that this book is not about sexy sparkly vampires and teenage love. If you are not ready to read about ugly realities of human life, do not op...

    Terrifying, engrossing and a book that encompasses many different topics. Not just a story about vampires; this book takes on such issues as bullying, revenge, pedophilia, prostitution, drug use, alcoholism and the sheer desperation of loneliness. Beautifully written and terribly distu...

    An unlikely FLAT-OUT masterpiece that contains the most visceral of horror fiction elements & expands them toward a precipice of dread. A one-of-a-kind experience, a delicious slap to the moribund reader. To be read AT ONCE. Do it! NOW. Take the title of this work literally. Fin...

    I finished reading ?Let the right one in? last night and immediately started reading a book about some nice people having a nice Catholic life in a nice part of Northern Ireland with a nice summer house and a nice family. It was all very nice. (for those of you who are wondering th...

    Wow. I know this is one of those sensational books coming out of Sweden and all and there's already two movies made which I haven't seen but STILL I hadn't gotten around to reading it until now. And now? Wow. Seriously creepy. I mean, if it wasn't for the pedophile PoV creeping the ...

    The character writing is phenomenal. The story is brutal and unsettling and, at times, eerie. It is not only one of the best vampire novels I've read, but one of the best horror novels I've ever come across. Deserves to be shelved with the greats. Hkan and Eli's reunion is now on...

    Wow!!!!! One of my all time faves, hands down.... Best writing and characterization I've read in a long time! (Not to mention best horror book--ever.) I am in awe of Lindqvist's ability to write, it is impossible for me to enjoy a book without great writing and the translation was ...

    If I listed the things that scared me most, vampires running around looking for blood wouldn't rate in my top 10. They wouldn't rate in my top 50. That said, John Ajvide Lindqvist's Let the Right One In (translated and distributed in the U.S. as Let Me In) unsettled me in multiple ways...

    Wow! This book! Such a thrilling, keeping-you-hooked type of story! Thank you, Kavita, for recommending (your version of recommending anyway :-P) this book to me. This is such a marvellous piece of writing. The words, the story, the characters... I feel soaked, coated with the amazi...

    Google the word atmospheric and this book should be the first result of the search. This story is a full sensory experience transporting you back to 1981 in a cold, gray suburb in Sweden. What is billed as a horror story is less horror and more heartbreak. The sheer terror of this stor...

    For some reason, I thought this was a YA tale. Where the hell did I get that from? I purchased it anyway, about 2 years ago, but just haven't had the chance to read it yet. Recently, I saw the audio available at my library, so I downloaded this bad boy and, wow-what fun! There are t...

    the first vampire books that I read were from Twilight books and after that whatever I read of them, I read in PNF genre. Needless to say these vampires were good, sexy, killing evil and saving the damsel in distress. Then three years back I read Fevre Dream, and that shattered the goo...

    ?vedska, jesen/zima 1981.godine, predgra?e Stokholma, mrak, ?uma i prijateljstvo izme?u sasvim obi?nog de?aka Oskara i ve? na prvi pogled poprili?no neobi?ne devoj?ice Eli. Lindkvist je uspeo u onome ?to je na prvi pogled delovalo kao nemogu?e, a to je da roman koji prip...

    This is as good as my other favourite vampire story- Fevre Dream by George R Martin. As much as I loved the vampire story, there was much more to this. It is also a story of lonely children, of bullying, of perversion. The setting adds to the sinister atmosphere. What really drew me in...

    It's bumming me out. 50 pages in and I'm giving up. I don't think I can take this much gore any longer. It's disturbing. I need at least one likable character - someone to root for, only then I can take in gore, serial murderers, pedophilia and such. Without somebody to identify with, ...

    No spoiler review. I have had this book on my shelf for a few years and I dubbed 2018 as the year I was going to check some boxes that needed to be checked. This book had been recommended to me countless times-in fact, *every single time* I ever mentioned that I am a huge fan of v...

    DNF @ page 189 (for now??) I was really enjoying this book, but I feel like I'm either not in the right mood for it, or it's just too stuffed with filler that I can't slog through it to get to the good parts. I feel like it could have been seriously cut down, and tons of the charact...

    I think I saw you in the shadows I move in closer beneath your windows Who would suspect me of this rapture? And who but my black hearted love And who but my black hearted love -- PJ Harvey, "Black Hearted Love" ***** It's been a rough week. Our fish died, giv...

    Having seen the film before reading the novel, I'm less impressed than I might have been had the experiences been reversed. I was engaged throughout, but compared to Lindqvist's screenplay, the novel felt bloated and overtly prurient (while Tomas Alfredson's film was more atmospheric, ...

    ?vedska, jesen/zima 1981.godine, predgra?e Stokholma, mrak, ?uma i prijateljstvo izme?u sasvim obi?nog de?aka Oskara i ve? na prvi pogled poprili?no neobi?ne devoj?ice Eli. Lindkvist je uspeo u onome ?to je na prvi pogled delovalo kao nemogu?e, a to je da roman koji prip...

    This is as good as my other favourite vampire story- Fevre Dream by George R Martin. As much as I loved the vampire story, there was much more to this. It is also a story of lonely children, of bullying, of perversion. The setting adds to the sinister atmosphere. What really drew me in...

    It's bumming me out. 50 pages in and I'm giving up. I don't think I can take this much gore any longer. It's disturbing. I need at least one likable character - someone to root for, only then I can take in gore, serial murderers, pedophilia and such. Without somebody to identify with, ...

    No spoiler review. I have had this book on my shelf for a few years and I dubbed 2018 as the year I was going to check some boxes that needed to be checked. This book had been recommended to me countless times-in fact, *every single time* I ever mentioned that I am a huge fan of v...

    DNF @ page 189 (for now??) I was really enjoying this book, but I feel like I'm either not in the right mood for it, or it's just too stuffed with filler that I can't slog through it to get to the good parts. I feel like it could have been seriously cut down, and tons of the charact...

    Soiled?soiled and a bit emotionally off-kilter. That?s the best I can do to describe how this book made me feel. It?s dark, morose and...really?really...REALLY?creepy. Not strange sounds and creaking doors creepy. Creepylike that "overly affectionate" uncle who stares at...

    As seen on The Readventurer I can't even find the words to describe how much I LOVED this novel. But let me start by warning Twilight lovers that this book is not about sexy sparkly vampires and teenage love. If you are not ready to read about ugly realities of human life, do not op...

    Dear Stephenie, This is how you write a "vampire" book. Sincerely, The World ...

    Terrifying, engrossing and a book that encompasses many different topics. Not just a story about vampires; this book takes on such issues as bullying, revenge, pedophilia, prostitution, drug use, alcoholism and the sheer desperation of loneliness. Beautifully written and terribly distu...

    An unlikely FLAT-OUT masterpiece that contains the most visceral of horror fiction elements & expands them toward a precipice of dread. A one-of-a-kind experience, a delicious slap to the moribund reader. To be read AT ONCE. Do it! NOW. Take the title of this work literally. Fin...

    Wow. I know this is one of those sensational books coming out of Sweden and all and there's already two movies made which I haven't seen but STILL I hadn't gotten around to reading it until now. And now? Wow. Seriously creepy. I mean, if it wasn't for the pedophile PoV creeping the ...

    The character writing is phenomenal. The story is brutal and unsettling and, at times, eerie. It is not only one of the best vampire novels I've read, but one of the best horror novels I've ever come across. Deserves to be shelved with the greats. Hkan and Eli's reunion is now on...

    Wow!!!!! One of my all time faves, hands down.... Best writing and characterization I've read in a long time! (Not to mention best horror book--ever.) I am in awe of Lindqvist's ability to write, it is impossible for me to enjoy a book without great writing and the translation was ...

    If I listed the things that scared me most, vampires running around looking for blood wouldn't rate in my top 10. They wouldn't rate in my top 50. That said, John Ajvide Lindqvist's Let the Right One In (translated and distributed in the U.S. as Let Me In) unsettled me in multiple ways...

    Wow! This book! Such a thrilling, keeping-you-hooked type of story! Thank you, Kavita, for recommending (your version of recommending anyway :-P) this book to me. This is such a marvellous piece of writing. The words, the story, the characters... I feel soaked, coated with the amazi...

    Google the word atmospheric and this book should be the first result of the search. This story is a full sensory experience transporting you back to 1981 in a cold, gray suburb in Sweden. What is billed as a horror story is less horror and more heartbreak. The sheer terror of this stor...

    You know that bit at the beginning of Amadeus, where Salieri has composed this very uninspired little march, which he and the Emperor play for Mozart? Then Mozart sits down at the keyboard and says, hm, that's not quite right, is it? And he messes around with it for a couple of minutes...

    Yo, lesson for you, Stephenie: this is how you write a fucking vampire novel. So you can run and tell THAT. ...

    (A) 86% | Extraordinary Notes: Tenderness with ferocity. It's lonely, desperate people living in ashen desolation. The grey makes the red stand out. ...

    Soiled?soiled and a bit emotionally off-kilter. That?s the best I can do to describe how this book made me feel. It?s dark, morose and...really?really...REALLY?creepy. Not strange sounds and creaking doors creepy. Creepylike that "overly affectionate" uncle who stares at...

    After watching the Swedish movie this book is based on, I thought it was an intensely creepy film and promptly got the book to check out the full story. I figured that the planned American film version would be a pale shadow of the original because there?s no way that a Hollywood mov...

    Imagine for a moment that you were at an event, like the 1995 Rugby World cup where South Africa both hosted and won. Imagine being there in the heat of that moment - the cheer and ebulation. That light, almost unreal sense that the world has faded away and there is only that moment. N...

    As seen on The Readventurer I can't even find the words to describe how much I LOVED this novel. But let me start by warning Twilight lovers that this book is not about sexy sparkly vampires and teenage love. If you are not ready to read about ugly realities of human life, do not op...

    Dear Stephenie, This is how you write a "vampire" book. Sincerely, The World ...

    Terrifying, engrossing and a book that encompasses many different topics. Not just a story about vampires; this book takes on such issues as bullying, revenge, pedophilia, prostitution, drug use, alcoholism and the sheer desperation of loneliness. Beautifully written and terribly distu...

    Loved it. Scary as hell and so violent. Think i shat myself along with Tommy in that basement. The first and probs only vampire book I will ever read. Loved it. And loved both films. ...

    ????????, ?' ??????: ?? ???? ?? ???, ?? ???? ? ???. ???????, ''??????? ??? ????????'' ???? ?? ?????? ???? ??? ???? ??? ??????????? ????????? ??? ?? ??????? ??...

    An unlikely FLAT-OUT masterpiece that contains the most visceral of horror fiction elements & expands them toward a precipice of dread. A one-of-a-kind experience, a delicious slap to the moribund reader. To be read AT ONCE. Do it! NOW. Take the title of this work literally. Fin...

    I finished reading ?Let the right one in? last night and immediately started reading a book about some nice people having a nice Catholic life in a nice part of Northern Ireland with a nice summer house and a nice family. It was all very nice. (for those of you who are wondering th...

    Wow. I know this is one of those sensational books coming out of Sweden and all and there's already two movies made which I haven't seen but STILL I hadn't gotten around to reading it until now. And now? Wow. Seriously creepy. I mean, if it wasn't for the pedophile PoV creeping the ...

    The character writing is phenomenal. The story is brutal and unsettling and, at times, eerie. It is not only one of the best vampire novels I've read, but one of the best horror novels I've ever come across. Deserves to be shelved with the greats. Hkan and Eli's reunion is now on...

    Wow!!!!! One of my all time faves, hands down.... Best writing and characterization I've read in a long time! (Not to mention best horror book--ever.) I am in awe of Lindqvist's ability to write, it is impossible for me to enjoy a book without great writing and the translation was ...

    If I listed the things that scared me most, vampires running around looking for blood wouldn't rate in my top 10. They wouldn't rate in my top 50. That said, John Ajvide Lindqvist's Let the Right One In (translated and distributed in the U.S. as Let Me In) unsettled me in multiple ways...

    Wow! This book! Such a thrilling, keeping-you-hooked type of story! Thank you, Kavita, for recommending (your version of recommending anyway :-P) this book to me. This is such a marvellous piece of writing. The words, the story, the characters... I feel soaked, coated with the amazi...

    Google the word atmospheric and this book should be the first result of the search. This story is a full sensory experience transporting you back to 1981 in a cold, gray suburb in Sweden. What is billed as a horror story is less horror and more heartbreak. The sheer terror of this stor...

    For some reason, I thought this was a YA tale. Where the hell did I get that from? I purchased it anyway, about 2 years ago, but just haven't had the chance to read it yet. Recently, I saw the audio available at my library, so I downloaded this bad boy and, wow-what fun! There are t...

    the first vampire books that I read were from Twilight books and after that whatever I read of them, I read in PNF genre. Needless to say these vampires were good, sexy, killing evil and saving the damsel in distress. Then three years back I read Fevre Dream, and that shattered the goo...

    This is as good as my other favourite vampire story- Fevre Dream by George R Martin. As much as I loved the vampire story, there was much more to this. It is also a story of lonely children, of bullying, of perversion. The setting adds to the sinister atmosphere. What really drew me in...

    It's bumming me out. 50 pages in and I'm giving up. I don't think I can take this much gore any longer. It's disturbing. I need at least one likable character - someone to root for, only then I can take in gore, serial murderers, pedophilia and such. Without somebody to identify with, ...

    No spoiler review. I have had this book on my shelf for a few years and I dubbed 2018 as the year I was going to check some boxes that needed to be checked. This book had been recommended to me countless times-in fact, *every single time* I ever mentioned that I am a huge fan of v...

    DNF @ page 189 (for now??) I was really enjoying this book, but I feel like I'm either not in the right mood for it, or it's just too stuffed with filler that I can't slog through it to get to the good parts. I feel like it could have been seriously cut down, and tons of the charact...

    Imagine for a moment that you were at an event, like the 1995 Rugby World cup where South Africa both hosted and won. Imagine being there in the heat of that moment - the cheer and ebulation. That light, almost unreal sense that the world has faded away and there is only that moment. N...

    As seen on The Readventurer I can't even find the words to describe how much I LOVED this novel. But let me start by warning Twilight lovers that this book is not about sexy sparkly vampires and teenage love. If you are not ready to read about ugly realities of human life, do not op...

    The character writing is phenomenal. The story is brutal and unsettling and, at times, eerie. It is not only one of the best vampire novels I've read, but one of the best horror novels I've ever come across. Deserves to be shelved with the greats. Hkan and Eli's reunion is now on...

    Wow!!!!! One of my all time faves, hands down.... Best writing and characterization I've read in a long time! (Not to mention best horror book--ever.) I am in awe of Lindqvist's ability to write, it is impossible for me to enjoy a book without great writing and the translation was ...

    If I listed the things that scared me most, vampires running around looking for blood wouldn't rate in my top 10. They wouldn't rate in my top 50. That said, John Ajvide Lindqvist's Let the Right One In (translated and distributed in the U.S. as Let Me In) unsettled me in multiple ways...

    Wow! This book! Such a thrilling, keeping-you-hooked type of story! Thank you, Kavita, for recommending (your version of recommending anyway :-P) this book to me. This is such a marvellous piece of writing. The words, the story, the characters... I feel soaked, coated with the amazi...

    Google the word atmospheric and this book should be the first result of the search. This story is a full sensory experience transporting you back to 1981 in a cold, gray suburb in Sweden. What is billed as a horror story is less horror and more heartbreak. The sheer terror of this stor...

    For some reason, I thought this was a YA tale. Where the hell did I get that from? I purchased it anyway, about 2 years ago, but just haven't had the chance to read it yet. Recently, I saw the audio available at my library, so I downloaded this bad boy and, wow-what fun! There are t...

    the first vampire books that I read were from Twilight books and after that whatever I read of them, I read in PNF genre. Needless to say these vampires were good, sexy, killing evil and saving the damsel in distress. Then three years back I read Fevre Dream, and that shattered the goo...

    This is as good as my other favourite vampire story- Fevre Dream by George R Martin. As much as I loved the vampire story, there was much more to this. It is also a story of lonely children, of bullying, of perversion. The setting adds to the sinister atmosphere. What really drew me in...
