Ratings & Reviews
It was perfectly okay
by SIDNEY -
The book wasn’t bad it was okay, but when you compare it to the movie the characters felt a little a shallow in terms of development and the horror and suspense felt kind of underwhelming. If you had choose between the book or the movie I’d say go with the movie it really captures the dark side of the entertainment business and the dark obsession of being a fan.
Not as strong as the movie
I actually read this before I watched the movie, and let me tell you this: the movie is much better. While the general premise is the same between this and the movie, there are a lot of differences in the plot and themes. The novel has none of the mind-screw moments that the movie is known for, which might disappoint those looking for something similar. The novel is much more straight-forward, but at the same time comes across as a little more ludicrous at some moments, especially in the climax. It's an alright read, but didn't move me as much as the movie did.
