“Establishes Lindqvist as Sweden’s Stephen King.”--The Washington Post on Harbor John Ajvide Lindqvist has been crowned the heir apparent to Stephen King by numerous sources, and he is heralded around the globe as one of the most spectacularly talented horror writers working today. His first novel, Let the Right One In, is a cult classic that has been made into iconic films in both Sweden and in the United States. His second novel, Handling the Undead, is beloved by horror fans everywhere. His third novel, Harbor, is a masterpiece that draws countless comparisons to Stephen King. Now, with Little Star, his most profoundly unsettling book yet, Lindqvist treads previously unmarked territory. A man finds a baby in the woods, left for dead. He brings the baby home, and he and his wife raise the girl in their basement. When a shocking and catastrophic incident occurs, the couple’s son Jerry whisks the girl away to Stockholm to start a new life. There, he enters her in a nationwide singing competition. Another young girl who’s never fit in sees the performance on TV, and a spark is struck that will ignite the most terrifying duo in modern fiction. Little Star is an unforgettable portrait of adolescence, a modern-day Carrie for the age of internet bullies, offensive reality television, and overnight You Tube sensations. Chilling, unnerving, and petrifying, Little Star is Lindqvist’s most disturbing book to date.

2.0 Little Star: A Novel

I was torn between boredom for a good 1/3 of this book and then just straight up baffled by the time I got to the end. This story starts out with a man who finds a baby that is ...

3.5 I don't know why, but I was expecting zombies.
Another great book by John Ajvide Lindqvist.This one didn't have quite the pull on me as Let the Right One In, but it still had that familiar style which made me love Let the Right One In so much. What I think somewhat hampered my enjoyment of this book was Jerry. He was just so blah. All of the oth...

2.5 Gross out does not mean freak out
For some reason this book left me cold – cold in a, really, type of a way. I didn’t find it as good as Handling the Undead or Let Me In. While the book starts off very well, it seems to descend into a maelstrom of violence intended to shock. Maybe it’s because I live in America wh...
