Book Review: Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

I gave this book 4 stars, but it’s probably closer to a 3.5. I always want to give a book the best possible rating (maybe due to the respect I have for professional authors and the difficulty it takes to get a book published) but, I admit, my initial reaction to this book is probably slightly overrated. 1,244 more words

I absolutely loved Let the Right One In, Lindqvist’s brilliant, original and macabre first novel, which offered a new take on the well-beaten vampire story, so when I saw this one at my local op shop I grabbed it immediately. 615 more words
