DescriptionOskar 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 is a unique and brilliant fusion of social novel and vampire legend, a deeply moving fable about rejection, friendship and loyalty.

Uncomfortable and chilling
Made my skin crawl! I had seen the movie (the Swedish version, of course!) and I had loved the tension and sweetness, but the horrific things that happen in the book are only ever hinted at in the film. The characters were amazingly drawn, and if you're a fan of a horror film then this book will not disappoint. by Lisette Muratore
Let the Right One In (without spoilers)
This book is about love, friendship, life, sould, etc... John Ajvide Lindqvist wrote something extraordinary. It was a long time since I had a book what I couldn't put down, or couldn't finish reading it for a moment. This book definately was a can't put it down one!
If you don't want to read any vampire books, read this one and you'll see... by CDfan
