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.

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.
