Oskar and Eli. In very different ways, they were both victims. Which is why, against the odds, they became friends. And how they came to depend on one another, for life itself. Oskar is a 12 year old boy living with his mother on a dreary housing estate at the city's edge. He dreams about his absentee father, gets bullied at school, and wets himself when he's frightened. Eli is the young girl who moves in next door. She doesn't go to school and never leaves the flat by day. She is a 200 year old vampire, forever frozen in childhood, and condemned to live on a diet of fresh blood. John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel is a unique and brilliant fusion of social novel and vampire legend, a deeply moving fable about rejection, friendship and loyalty.

3.0 Let The Right One In Film Tie-in
I've thought some more about how to review this book, and I somehow feel that I should give it more stars, but I'm still unsure. Because it falls in that category of novels that leaves me "I liked it a lot, but..." (and though the 'buts' aren't so easy to explain, they still remain).In terms of how ...

This review was first posted on Music, Books and TeaI’m going to start off this review by saying that this is hands down, one of the single most disturbing things I have ever read. Ever. Not scary, although it is creepy in some places. Nope. This book is just all kinds of messed-up wrong. Yet it’s c...
