Waterstones Says

One of the finest modern vampire tales, Lindqvist’s complex work draws out the metaphorical allusions of vampirism and interweaves them with themes of social realism, teenage ennui and the tormented bonds of friendship. Sensitively written, poignant and very, very frightening, Let the Right One In is a landmark of twenty-first century horror.

Oskar and Eli. In very different ways, they were both victims. Which is why, against the odds, they became friends.

And how they came to depend on one another, for life itself.

Oskar is a 12-year-old boy living with his mother on a dreary housing estate at the city's edge. He dreams about his absentee father, gets bullied at school, and wets himself when he's frightened.

Eli is the young girl who moves in next door. She doesn't go to school and never leaves the flat by day. She is a 200-year-old vampire, forever frozen in childhood, and condemned to live on a diet of fresh blood.

John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel, a huge bestseller in his native Sweden, is a unique and brilliant fusion of social novel and vampire legend. And a deeply moving fable about rejection, friendship and loyalty.

“Favourite read”

This was the best book I read in 2009.
The author writes intricately and with great detail.
I really connected to some of the characters and couldn't put the book down.

“I didn't get it”

I'd really been looking forward to this book. I bought it ages go and had it on my bookshelf in that deliciously anticipatory 'books to be read' pile.
So, I understand that the author has been touted as... More

“DULL”

It was recommended by a sales assistant in waterstones who claimed it was gripping.....certainly is not. Although I imagine it could be better as a film?
