Description

Set in 1983, Let Me In is the horrific tale of Oskar and Eli. It begins with the grizzly discovery of the body of a teenage boy, emptied of blood. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last - revenge for all the bad things the bullies at school do to him, day after day.

While Oskar is fascinated by the murder, it is not the most important thing in his life. A new girl has moved in next door - a girl who has never seen a Rubik’s cube before, but who can solve it at once. They become friends. Then something more. But there is something wrong with her, something odd. And she only comes out at night....

Critiques

"Lindqvist develops the plot in rich detail. The characters, adult and child, are quite convincingly the sort that one would probably cross the street to avoid in any city." ( Booklist)

Saw the movies. The book is different

Drawn to this book by the movies. Neither of the movies are close to the pace and shock of the book. I enjoyed how the writer draws you in by not telling you what happens until you see the aftermath of any event.

Definitely not for the faint of heart for vampire readers. Gets into the "reality" of what a vampire body is about. Similar to the movies, I like the explanation of what happens if a vampire enters into a room without being asked to enter.

Good Times!

Hard to put down

After seeing the Swedish version of the movie, which I liked, but which was somewhat slow paced and a little disjointed, and after reading a couple of the reviews, I was worried about purchasing this book, but I'm glad I did. It's more a story about relationships than it is about vampires, and the book cleared up some questions I had about what was going on in the movie.

The book is about children and does include child molestation, but that's not the central theme of the book; nor did the author dwell on it, as a couple of the reviews seemed to insinuate. Such things happen, and avoiding mention of them isn't going to make them go away.

I like this book; the narrator is good, too.

Mature Writing vs. Puberty Materials

After watching the American version of the movie, I really wanted to read the book. It's been on the back burner for a while and I finally broke down and purchased the title. This is not my first introduction of this author. I have read, "Handling the Undead", which was good, but "Let Me In" is what I was waiting for to become a fan of his writing.

Unlike the typical horror story, Lindqvist writes at if it's almost like a dark drama, love story, but without the tween saga. The thriller will gripe you in, where you can't stop turning the pages, or in my case, couldn't stop listening. I usually don't read the book after watching the movie, but in this case, I just knew that the book would be excellent.

This is one of my favorite reads in a while simply because the author could had wrote this book to please teen pop culture, with yucky vampire love and your typical fairy tale, but he didn't. Lindqvist used his own twisted imagination, where the puppy love between the vampire girl and the boy, is not the center point of the plot, but it's a background drop of the story.

After reading this book, one can understand mature writing versus adolescent puberty materials, from the same vampire genre.

The cat scene is awesome. I just wished that it was written in the movie also.

Unusual theme but a great story.

This is the most unusual story I have read in a long time. If you have seen either the Swedish film, based on this book or the more recent American remake the book will explain what was not revealed in either film. If you enjoyed either version of the films you must read this book!

Exceptional!

One of the very best vampire books ever! I literally could not put it down. The narrator was among the best, too. I'd not seen or heard any other works by Lindquist, but his dedication to intricate detail and depth of comprehension of the mind of a pre-teen adolescent was awe inspiring. His insightful treatment of the elderly characters was splendid. I will recommend this to all of my friends...even the ones who don't have a taste for the horrific. Great literature! Go Swedes.

An amusement park of depravity!

This book is completely amazing. It will stay with you long after you finish. A word of caution, however... This discusses explicit and difficult subject matter in great depth. Even without that subject matter, it would still be terrifying. It's not for everyone.

A very good read!

I was drawn in early to the story, and it kept me interested until the very end. My only complaint is that the book puts a charactor twist on the young vampire, that the movies or other reviews fail to recognize or acknowledge. I happen to think this twist made the story line less enjoyable, but at least be true to the book when using it elsewhere. I think Lindqvist was trying to make some kind of social statement, but it didn't need to be made here. Worth the credit though.

Worth 2 Credits, but only costs 1

Much better than either the foriegn or English movie could ever be. The characters truly come to life. Awesome spin on the whole vampire thing. I've been a horror/suspense reader since the mid 70s and this one moves to the top of the list. Just can't describe too many of the great attributes of the book without being a spoiler for those who have yet to experience this great book. If you like this genre, JUST GET IT!!!

Beautiful Horror

I read this book many years ago and couldn't put it down. I had an urge to read it again. It is just as emotional and unsettling as it was the first time around. Almost poetic.
Hands down, the best vampire story I've ever read.

If you had seen the movie, this book contains more graphic tones of the pedophilia so it may not be suitable for sensitive readers. It is also much more gory.

Highly recommended to horror fans.

Sehr spannend und gut gelesen.

Es ist keine Vampirgeschichte oder doch? Vampirgeschichten mag ich nämlich nicht aber dieser Roman ist sehr spannend und in der Wirklichkeit angesiedelt.
Der Sprecher Steven Pacey gehört zu meinen absoluten Favoriten. Klare englische Aussprache und so viele Ausdrucksweisen und unterschiedliche Akzente das es schon fast ein Hörspiel ist.
