The first book did a great job giving me the creeps as a kid. This book gave me a slightly altered experience from the movies. Things play out mostly the same, but some changes are made. That's basically what you get.
Since this book was printed so long ago, it's harder to find, with a price to match.
In 4: A young girl finds herself gaining the skills of her friends as they are offed by Freddy.
In 5: The main from the fourth finds herself caught in dreams as she is awake. She discovers that Freddy's attempt to take over her unborn child is the cause of this.
Both novels were quick, simple, and surprisingly suspenseful reads. The main character was sypathetic as she discovered that her friends are dying because of her ability to join others in dreams. So, every time she sleeps, Freddy pulls one of her friends into the dream with her and forces her to watch as they die. Freddy fans will find this an enjoyable read, as will others. The writting is obviously intended for a teenage audience. This is surprising because of the inclusion of swearing in the novel. Heck, the first paragraph of part 5 details a sex scene between two teenagers. This is not too bad, though, so I will still recomend this read to anyone who can find the book.
NOES 5 is completely different from the movie. Same plot, different way of looking at it. Still a very good novelization in my personal opinion!
