Kurzbeschreibung

2. August 2007
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

Pressestimmen

International Acclaim for Let Me In

 

“Absolutely chilling. This page-turner grabs you from the onset and just won’t let go. Vampires at their Anne Ricean best!”

---L. A. Banks, author of the Vampire Huntress series

 

“Sweden’s Stephen King…A classic horror-romance story.  I love it.  Could not stop reading.  More please.”

---Amelia (Sweden)

 

“A must for vampire fans, even those who think they’ve seen it all.”  

---Katherine Ramsland, author of Piercing the Darkness, The Science of Vampires, and The Vampire Companion

 

“A brilliant take on the vampire myth, and a roaring good story.”

---Kelley Armstrong, bestselling author of Haunted

 

“Readers are familiar with modern Sweden through its distinctive crime fiction. Now John Ajvide Lindqvist is taking a Gothic look at the country’s dark side. Henning Mankell’s gloomy police procedurals were the first to become international bestsellers in the middle 1990s and spearheaded an explosion, but the latest publishing phenomenon to come out of Sweden seems to be plumping for a different genre. John Ajvide Lindqvist has become an overnight cult figure.”

---The Age (Australia)

 

Let Me In, a Swedish book taking the publishing world by storm, is a different, surprising, and sometimes delightful reading experience. Delightful would not normally be the first word that springs to mind when describing a blood-soaked plot.… It is Lindqvist’s great skill that a strong thread of innocence continues alongside this horror.”

---The Sunday Telegraph (Australia)

 

“It is easy to compare Lindqvist to Clive Barker or Neil Gaiman. When you reach the last page, you are left with the wonderful tingling sensation that only comes with a brand-new love affair or a really great book.”

---Dagens Næringsliv (Norway)

 

“Impressive…can certainly compare with some of the best international authors…Lindqvist is as learned as Anne Rice as far as the most updated vampire mythology is concerned.”

---Dagens Nyheter (Sweden)

 

“One of the creepiest and most imaginative stories of the decade…echoes Stephen King at the height of his storytelling powers.”

---Sunday Herald-Sun (Australia)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Spooky and Good 3. Januar 2008
Von Amber
Format:Taschenbuch
This was an amazing creepy story! As I was reading the names Stephen King and Stephenie Meyer sprung into my mind. This book was a nice twist of both of their styles but somehow unique as well.

The book says it is 'A Vampire Love Story' but to be honest I didn't find it was much of a love story. Which was good ;) I actually thought this was more like a murder mystery with a small paranormal twist.

I had some trouble getting into the story at first but then the story had me hooked till the end. Scary and thrilling this was unusual and interesting. I wonder if the author will write anything like this again.

I have to say that this is by a Swedish author and has been translated into English. Sometimes the translation was not as good as it could have been and some words were left in Swedish. However it is readable and well worth reading if you like creepy Stephen King like books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Victims and Victimizers 4. März 2008
Von Dr. W. L. Lyon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Let the Right One In, by John Ajvide Lindovist. has one fantastic element: vampires. It's set in a suburb of Stockholm, on a social housing development that has become a sink estate. It's a sad place, full of aimless people. The people with responsibility - teachers, policemen, parents, are, for the most part, trying to do the right thing. They've got good intentions.

The book has a huge cast of characters with the major division between adults and children, each subdivided into the successful, more or less, and the failures, with a further division into victims and victimizers. The book opens with a bullied child, Oskar, who fantasizes about becoming a mass murderer. He meets Elli, a child vampire. The predictable does not happen.

Many of the adults on the estate are as powerless as the children - lonely, middle aged and elderly alcoholics, unemployed or working at minimum wage jobs. They are presented with a moral choice similar to that of the children: even if a victim, one can refuse to victimize others. (And that is the major freedom the characters in the book have.)

An earlier reviewer said he/she wasn't sure if this was belonged in horror... it's horror in the same way that Henry James' ghost stories fit the genre. It's mainstream/literary/horror, a book that crosses boundaries. I think genres are more useful for finding a kind of reading than describing a book - essentially, this is a very good book that people who read horror and people who would never consider reading horror would both like. It doesn't rank highly on the 'feel good factor' but it has a surprisingly happy ending -- one of those 'happy endings' that is about as happy as, all things considered, an ending can be.

I loved it - and think it's one of the best books I've read in the past year or so.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Upsettingly Spellbinding 21. Juli 2009
Von Jamie A. Girard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
"Let Me In" is extremely well written. !Disturbing! At times the story is so intense and demented that I would look away from the book trying to stop the atrocities from crawling into my brain yet my enslaved eyes would twist in their sockets to read on. If you dare read "Let Me In" you will see things not ment to be seen. Forever changed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best vampire novel of the past thirty-five years, possibly longer. 7. Oktober 2010
Von Robert Beveridge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let the Right One In (Thomas Dunne Books, 2004)

Let the Right One In was hands-down the best movie of 2008, and in my estimation, one of the greatest achievements in film to date; it followed that I'd have to read the book eventually. It took me a while to get there, but I just finished it, and I find myself having to look at the two as entirely separate works. In hindsight, the film is reductionist almost to the point of absurdity (while still being brilliant); so much of the book is trimmed away that I even find myself being slightly optimistic about the American remake slated to come out two days from now as I write this. It's obvious Lindqvist (who wrote both adaptations) left a whole lot of material that was still ripe for mining in his 2008 screenplay. Hopefully he dug into it for the 2010 version.

The movie is a simple coming-of-age love story. The book is that, but it is also a straight vampire novel in many ways the movie is not; it is far more Stephen King than Stephenie Meyer (and hooray for that indeed). As well as focusing on the Oskar-and-Eli storyline familiar to those who have seen the film (and if you haven't seen the film, you should immediately), there are a number of others. We get a lot more insight into Oskar's personality; we see a lot more of him being bullied (which makes the climactic scene in both book and film a lot more solid), we see an aborted weekend with his divorced father. And then there's Eli. Almost, but not quite, a completely different character. A lot more savage than portrayed in the film, and... different. (I can't tell you how without major spoilers, just trust me on this.) As well, there are two other major subplots. The group of alcoholics who meet at the Chinese restaurant, who pop up in the film now and again but never really qualify as major characters, are very much that here; they get as much screen time as do Oskar and Eli, especially Lacke and Virginia, whose old, doomed romance is such a wonderful parallel to Oskar and Eli's young, doomed romance. And then there is Tommy, who lives in the building on the other side of Oskar from Eli. Tommy doesn't appear at all in the movie (I just had to check IMDB to make sure, and his character is entirely erased). His mother is dating one of the police officers who's investigating the recent murders in the area, and aside from being a friend/mentor figure to Oskar, he plays a very pivotal role in a section of the book that was excised from the film.

As a completely different piece of art, I could rate it differently than the film, but I chose not to; this is quite possibly the best piece of vampire literature to come down the pike since 'Salem's Lot, and may in fact be better even than that. Where the movie chose to focus on the tenderness, the book encompasses that tenderness in a sort of inevitable brutality (of which we got only the tip of the iceberg in the movie's climax, and that mostly offstage). That's a very delicate balance, and Lindqvist plays it like a Stradivarius. It's obviously a bit early to call this a classic, but if there's been a better vampire novel in the past thirty years, I can't think of it. *****

5.0 von 5 Sternen A riveting, tense thriller 2. Dezember 2007
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Set in Sweden in 1981, LET ME IN provides a riveting, tense thriller revolving around a dead teen and a possible ritual murder spree. Add a pre-teen who hopes revenge has come for the bullying he's suffered and a strange new girl who moves in next door, who only comes out at night, and you have a vampire novel to rival Anne Rice's best: a tense thriller recommended for any general lending library where patrons request powerful characterization and vampire novels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Different Breed 25. August 2010
Von Dianna Hunter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
There are books you read and think upon favorably, and just move on. This book sticks with you and, in my case, makes you desperate to discuss and share it with someone. You definitely hold your breath throughout the story. My reaction was not, `What is going to happen next?', it was `What is happening?'. I adored it. I am not going to try and compare it to the other vampire books out there because there simply isn't a comparison. This is disturbing, dirty, haunting, sad, gloomy, and fascinating. No glamour. No eternal love. The characters you may support in the beginning are not necessarily the same in the end. By the way, I hated that this book ended, although I love the way in which it did. Just as curiously as Eli and Oskar enter your life; they are gone. Do you wish them well?
