About the Author

Robert Bloch is the author of two dozen novels and hundreds of short stories, many of which are now considered among the masterpieces of modern mystery and horror. Psycho, his best known novel, was made into Hitchcock's unforgettable film, and his scenarios include classic episodes of the still popular 'Alfred Hitchcock's Presents' television series. A past president of the Mystery Writers of America, Mr Bloch lives in Los Angeles, California. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

If your fortunate to have landed a copy of Psycho 2, I must be respectful to the public audience and warn you: your in for a big surprise. The prose is simple and efficent, Bloch dosen't bother with tantilising us with un-neccessary diolouge- everything that's in this book is there for a reason and every sentence has an alterior motive. I'm am 17 years old and I cant help asking, why dosen't anyone know who Bloch is. He's a mascot of writers past. He has influenced many writers ( McDonald, King, Straub) and myself. This is a fantastic book, very enjoyable and totally unpredicatable. Why was it never adapted for film? Bloch at his best.

Well, I dont really know what to say. It is certainly much larger than the first book, but it doesnt get many more good points than that. It has a good begining that gets you wanting to read more and more, but in between the first few chapters and the end, it talks about hollywood life ... I kept reading because I thought it was going somewhere, but I was wrong. The begining and the end were good, but the 3hundred pages or so in between were just awefull. I only recomend it if you are a die hard Robert Bloch fan.

Surprisingly this book has nothing in common with the movie "Psycho II" other than the title. I was glad, because I didn't enjoy this at all and that is rare for me to dislike something by Robert Bloch. It's a most forgettable book. It's good to obtain to see what it's like. But for entertainment purposes, I'd watch the movie instead. The movie takes us back to the Bates Motel with Norman getting out of the mental hospital after many years. And that's what we expect when we hear "Psycho II". Not this.

Welcome back Norman, or not...

Blochs sequel to his most popular book is somewhat disappointing. That said, I will still read Psycho House, just to finish the sequels although I do so with a strange feeling that I may be disappointed again.
