Publisher's Summary

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....

Critic Reviews

"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)

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.

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!
