The talk of black magic and rituals were mildly brought up in the movie but here there is much discussion. Very powerful-I could not put down.The movie is in my top five horror movies of all time and the book is now in my top five horror books.
The book flowed fast and did not slow down. If you love the movie and have not read the book. ORDER IT NOW! I was reading it at night and did not want to leave my room because there was no light out there...who knows what could be lurching out there...
Terrifying, compelling and most importantly entertaining.
Enjoy....just keep the lights in your house on if you read at night!
Having seen the movie umpteen times the book served to fill in some small cracks left by the movie which it does wonderfully. Also in the book is a whole side of Chris McNeil's help that the movie doesn't touch on.
Blatty's writing style is very engaging from page one through to the end. He can snare you in and hold you, delivering the story at just the right pace that your reading cadence neither increases nor decreases.
Reading the book you'll learn the story is purely about Father Damien Karras and his internal struggle with his loss of faith. Karras is at a point in his life where he is questioning everything and the answers he's getting aren't adding up. He loses his mom under circumstances he blames himself for and this just compounds his dwindling faith. The Regan McNeil case, in a warped way, becomes the catalyst for self examination and ultimately resolution.
Fantastic writing of a book now some 45 years old. It's a classic along with its celluloid twin. Great stuff worthy of your time.
