I’ve seen the movie and Llibro really didn’t like it at all but I’m willing to give the book a try. I’m just curious as to how similar in context the two are. Christina Young I recommend watching the Swedish version of the movie. It was really good. The American one was very very watered down. Technically the book is way …more I recommend watching the Swedish version of the movie. Technically the book is way more brash and violent and twisted and disgusting than both movies.
But I definitely think the Swedish movie is great and would actually recommend watching lkndqvist whether you read the book first or not. Are there any rape scenes in this? I can’t handle those. I know that there is a pedophile character, though. Murder and torture I can handle but not rape.

Loved the Swedish film version the pedophilia was implied, not graphic like the book. See all 12 questions about Let the Right One In…. Lists with This Book. I finally got my revenge on Sweden. But as a parent, Sweden seems the perfect place to have children.
What can Sweden teach GB?
Sweden has gradually given itself a fairly sound spelling system. But still — Sweden.
Is there no end to their tall blond pretty perfection and their warm fuzzy wraparound social democracy? This is chicken soup for my soul, with swedes! And not only that, but as many persons have pointed out, this is a kind of anti-Twilight, given that the only sexually attractive vampire around is a year old 12 year old girl and the only attracting going on is with an adult paedophile and a miserable lonely 12 year old boy.
So stick that up your sacro-iliac, Bella and Edward! I fart in your general direction! This book gets major points for being so accurate about childhood terrors of the non-imaginary kind bullying. In fact it’s really about childhood neglect and the vampire stuff can be read as an extended poetic symbol.
But the vampire kibro is also gory and it rocksso you can have your sensitive cake and you can greedily gobble it up it too.
Anyway, altogether, a maxillo-facial gothtastic read – 3. It pulls a few punches and dfjame out a major zombie theme but otherwise a does a great job.
I saw the American remake and that’s great too – I wouldn’t lie to you, I was very surprised. So – rent that one too! Fejame I’m being told that although Sweden gets a million tons of snow every day because of their extreme yet kindly efficiency no one ever falls down and no bus is ever late and no road is ever closed yet a couple of days of Swedish snow in Britain and all roads are impassable and all lorries immediately jack-knife and all schools immediately close. Bite them, Eli, bite them all!

You know that bit at the beginning of Amadeuswhere Salieri libr composed this very uninspired little march, which he and the Emperor play for Mozart? Then Mozart sits down at the keyboard and says, hm, that’s not quite right, is it? And he messes around with it for a couple of minutes, until he’s suddenly transformed it into “Here’s farewell to the games with the girls” from The Marriage of Figaro.
John Ajvide Lindqvist has looked at Ste You know that bit at the beginning of Amadeuswhere Salieri has composed this very uninspired little march, which he and the Emperor play for Mozart? John Ajvide Lindqvist has looked at Stephenie Meyer’s book and said hm, that’s not quite right, is it?
And he’s somehow rearranged its elements into a bloody masterpiece. I wouldn’t have thought it could be done.
I can hear Mozart’s irritating high-pitched giggle. View all 39 comments. Jul 02, Jason rated it really liked it Shelves: Yo, lesson for you, Stephenie: So you can run and tell THAT. View all 25 comments. It’s lonely, desperate people living in ashen desolation.

The working class Swedish suburb where the story takes place feels dingy, depressing and rundown. The p Soiled …soiled and a bit emotionally off-kilter. The people moving through the narrative are sad, detached and very weird mostly and the atmosphere is a kind of artsy fogginess that makes everything seem dreamlike and slightly…well…. Beyond the high creepy quotient, this story is hard to pin down.
While the main character is a vampire, this is not really a vampire story. It just so happens that one of these outcasts is a gothy, child vampire of dubious age and sexuality who moves into this economically depressed neighborhood and befriends an adolescent boy named Oskar. The aforementioned Oskar, our main character, is a 12 year old whose life is a bit of a mess. He’s sad, lonely and incontinent and splits his time between being mercilessly bullied by his schoolmates and indulging in a rich, twisted fantasy world where he murders his tormentors in sick, disgusting ways.
His life is bordering on tragic. In his spare time, Hakan is a sick, unhinged, pedophile now you understand the shudder who is constantly struggling with his predelictions and the awful things he has to do to keep Eli alive. Oh and no spoilers but just remember The book is a tad schizophrenic. On the positive side, the prose is excellent and the characters of Eli, Hakan and Oskar are very interesting.
In addition, Eli is an original and superbly realistic vampire that I thought was just a wonderful take on the mythos. Had the story dealt more with those three components and with the unique form of vampirism that the novel postulates, I would have been far more happy with the book.
Let the Right One In
Unfortunately and here we get to the badthe story gets seriously bogged down with a handful of other characters in the town whose stories were just not compelling to me. I kept losing focus on the story whenever the narrative slipped to one of these ancillaries and it really degraded my enjoyment of the story. Also, the dreariness of the whole story did begin to weigh on me. It just got a bit too jobn. I thought the end was well done and kept pace with the level of realism that the author was going for with the story.
