Publisher's Summary

John Ajvide Lindqvist’s international bestseller Let the Right One In is “a brilliant take on the vampire myth, and a roaring good story” (New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong), the basis for the multi-film festival award-winning Swedish film, the U.S. adaptation Let Me In directed by Matt Reeves (The Batman), and the Showtime TV series. 

It is autumn 1981 when inconceivable horror comes to Blackeberg, a suburb in Sweden. The body of a teenager is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last—revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day.

But the murder is not the most important thing on his mind. 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. There is something wrong with her, though, something odd. And she only comes out at night. . .

Disturbing, a modern Gothic Tale

The films "Let Me In" (2010) and "Let the Right One In" (2008) were good, well-made stories for the screen; the book is an entirely different experience, with more detail and many horrors not explained in the movie make themselves indispensable to the story's overall theme. All three tales retell the tale differently, making it almost a new account. The book is extremely dark, and the vampirism spreads like a plague. Old-world fears make themselves anew; an unsuspecting public cannot deal with the horrifying reality- thus, misdirection and death ensue as deep and well-developed characters deal with the darkness.

Amazing book

The story has dark and disturbing content but is a must-read. The story has strong themes of loneliness, depression, revenge, bullying, love, and murder, all wrapped up in suspense

It was okay

Not my favorite. Hard to stay invested. Only enjoyed the interactions between Oscar and Eli. The rest was just filler to me that I couldn’t get into. I heard good things about this and I really gave it a try. Not for me though. It was meh.
