One thought on “Let the Right One In

  1. 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 Sweden has probably the strongest freedom of information law anywhere in the world Sweden has one of the best staffed health services in the world But as a parent, Sweden seems the perfect place to have children BBC s Joe Wilson on [...]

  2. 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, until he s suddenly transformed it into Here s farewell to the games with the girls from The Marriage of Figaro Well, it s like that L t den r tte komma in and Twilight John Ajvide Lindqvist has looked at Stephenie [...]

  3. 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 andally reallyREALLY creepy Not strange sounds and creaking doors creepy Creepy like that overly affectionate uncle who stares at you too often and always wants a hug that lasts for an inappropriate length of time That kind of creepy.This book oozes it The working class Swedish suburb where the story takes place feels dingy, depressing and rundown The people moving thr [...]

  4. 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 movie studio is going to show that messed up tale in it s original form to audiences in the U.S Little did I know that even the Swedish producers didn t have the collective nutsack to give us the full story on how goddam [...]

  5. 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 Nothing else is important and you want to quietly capture the complete bliss you are experiencing and put it in a bottle somewhere Hopefully at some future date you can take it out and rekindle those emotions and bask in [...]

  6. As seen on The ReadventurerI 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 open this book It is not an easy book to read The story is complex and involves many characters, whose presence sometimes is just momentary The action moves from one character to another very quickly But once you understan [...]

  7. A 86% ExtraordinaryNotes Tenderness with ferocity It s lonely, desperate people living in ashen desolation The grey makes the red stand out.

  8. 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 disturbing This book sets the bar for the genre.

  9. 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.

  11. 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 the nice book is The Heather Blazing by Colm Toibin it s on the 1001 books list I ve had this nice book on my shelf for about three years and never bothered to read it till now So, why now I can only conclude that some inner [...]

  12. 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 freaking hell out of me for a grand swath of the beginning, I d still have been digging the early eighties references, the crisp and delightful prose even if translated , and the details of life around Kiss and Rubic s Cub [...]

  13. 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 H kan and Eli s reunion is now one of my top five most disturbing scenes in literature It will be a long time before I get that vile shit out of my head, if I ever do.In summation This review is short because I have nothing bad to say about Let the Right O [...]

  14. 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 so spot on it did not read like one at all.Sweden, a place I ve never been, became real to me without having to put much of my imagination to work The streets, stores, housing, woods everything was laid out so well, as if I was ther [...]

  15. 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 amazingness of this work by the author I feel like if I ever meet the honourable person, I would just bow down in sheer aweThe secondary characters and there was a spotlight on a squirrel of all things for a short time, too were so we [...]

  16. 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 thousands of ratings and reviews on this book, plus there s a movie, so what can I contribute to this conversation Not that much I enjoyed the main characters, I enjoyed how the issues dealt with herein bullying, alcoholi [...]

  17. 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 I actually started reading it in 2012, then again in 2013, before finally making it through its house of horrors And I m sure glad that I did.The title is a play on the Morrissey tune Let the Right One Slip In , but th [...]

  18. 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 Take the title of this work literally Find the time to seek this one out So worth it

  20. 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 good image of vampires Vampires were blood thirsty, scary, dangerous and murderers I liked this version than the love sick one and now I prefer this version over the PNF So I was happy when I finished reading this book [...]

  21. 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, suffering through one violent description after another is no fun This was no fun And now I m fighting this urge I want to crawl in under the table, wrap myself up in a blanket, stuck a thumb into my mouth and rock back a [...]

  22. 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, giving my young, beautiful, precocious, cherished and oh so vulnerable daughter her first glimpse at Death It was my first real parenting rite of passage, and I failed abysmally Me croaking something about the Circle of Life as I stood in my pajamas holdin [...]

  23. 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 atmospheric, nuanced, erotic, morally ambiguous, and mesmerizing Every episode cut from the novel during the adaptation process was absolutely necessary and a character central to the novel Haken was whittled down to just the right a [...]

  24. I discovered this story when I discovered the movie I enjoyed the film so much I wanted to know Let the Right One In is in some ways unrelentingly grim There a lot of horrifying things in it that have absolutely nothing to do with the supernatural, especially if you stop to really thing about them The horror itself is good too I ve read tons of vampire fiction and find this to be a truly refreshing take on the genre In terms of the characters, I thought both Oskar and Eli were very compelling a [...]

  25. Either horror has changed since the last time I was a big horror reader, or I am a certified wuss.I have read a lot of Stephen King, Peter Straub, Shirley Jackson, Lovecraft, and Poe Heck, my first fiction sales were horror stories All of this prepared me for reading Let Me In about as well as a security blanket and a PowerBar would prepare me to overwinter in Antarctica Where do I start Okay, how about HOLY GUACAMOLE, IS THIS BOOK GORY.Way gory Beyond gory Gorror upon gorror for pages at a time [...]

  26. 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 vampire lit So I bought this with huge anticipation and BIG expectations since everyone I respect as a horror reader has rated it 4 5 stars.My first thoughts are on the writing For me, this is the first time a translated boo [...]

  27. I had been meaning to read this book for a very long time and I could never seem to get around to it, but this year, I decided to go on a horror novel spree for October Let the Right One In is the first book I reached for as soon as I made that decision I had heard plenty of things about it that it was bleak and gross and deeply unsettling And holy moo cow, it is all those things on crack Unless you live under a rock, you are probably aware that it s set in a lower middle class suburb in Sweden, [...]

  28. I am not generally a fan of vampires these days Now don t get me wrong the idea is pretty cool What s not to like about blood sucking undead immortals wreaking havoc amongst the cattle that is mankind Add in some shape shifting and immortal ennui and things can be pretty interesting OK, the immortal ennui can get a bit boring , but the fact of the matter is the trope s been done to death pardon the pun , hasn t it The vampire has so oversaturated the market these days that I feel like a diabetic [...]
