The Exorcist is a classic blaatty but it is a good classic; it’s not The Castle of Otranto or The Monkboth of which haven’t exactly stood the test of time; The Exorcist is a classic in the way of Rosemary’s Rxorcista or I Am Legendboth of which will be remembered and savored by generations of readers in years to come.

This merely isn’t a story about the possession of a young girl, but its really a commentary on a vast range of topics such as faith and the lack of it, to what exists le death, if anything exists at all. Highly recommended for those who love a great thrill ride and can stomach some graphic descriptions and language. Still Kinderman is an intriguing detective and we do get some emotional scenes.

If you like the horror genre and the crime fiction genre, you’ll very likely enjoy this novel. This is concentrated at the start though, and can be easily avoided unless it’s your thing.

Imagine seeing your hands killing or hurting someone, maybe even someone close to you, and not being able to stop it.

However, I was disappointed for the second time when it abruptly ended as quickly exrocista it began. The movie at the end scared the bejesus out of me, but not as much with the book. And boy did I enjoy the results. I know, shame on me, but you see, I thought I wouldn’t be able to take it seriously. Oct 22, Missy myweereads rated it it was amazing. I think it stars Ben Daniels as the priest. That’s the problem here It was well written, it scared me pretty damn good and it had great, memorable characters.


Curiosity compels you to read this! I thought about getting a exorcisga of the movie to watch again since I have read the book but hell no. I almost dropped my digesting dinner when I first saw it: Nevertheless, Father Merrin and Father Karras set out to perform the exorcism.

But not because the story spooked me. The protagonist might well be going through some kind of brain malignancy, and Blatty describes some odd neural phenomena as well as introducing the necessary supernatural stuff. This book is not scary, not terrifying and didn’t really make much sense.

I was blown away by this book.

Who or what is behind all this? He reminds me of my dad, and that’s the biggest compliment I could pay anyone. Blatty tries really hard to downplay science, using certain scientific principles but then says things like “How does the eye manage to isolate a single image?

I loved how his mental status was outlined. This man clearly has a talent for wil,iam and using minimal words to convey vivid imagery.

Oh, and that scene view spoiler [Yes, the spider-walk He is damaged, dark, and brooding When Karras agrees to come visit Regan, he is fearful, yet baffled as well, though will not jump to the idea of possession, even as Chris pushes for an exorcism. Actually the debate about which novel is the most terrifying of all, it’s an endless dispute that I’m sure the general reading community never would be able to agree in a specific novel.

The priest Damien Karras, who also happens to be a psychologist, finds himself confronting not only an evil entity beyond his wildest imaginations, but also his personal struggles with his own faith. Falls of blood and mountains of dead bodies succesfully dimmed any scares and frights that the reader could have experienced when he was reading this novel in the early 70’s.


A kind and rational man, he would explore all possibilities to be sure that the little girl was indeed possessed and not suffering form some psychological affliction. I was hooked for about the last pages and stayed up late to finish it. It works because religion is integral to the plot.

The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty

Want to Read saving…. Jul 30, Johann jobis89 rated it it was amazing. Something that wants us to be wrapped up in our hate and anger and displaced blame so that we are found weak and distracted.

That is definitely not the case. Strangely William Peter Blatty took his last breath three days later. The mystery at the heart of the novel is good, and the supernatural elements are chilling, and they alone are what save LEGION from being utterly forgettable. The links and tie-ins to The Exorcist were bpatty great, it makes me want to reread that one again.

Growing up I hated horror, you couldn’t have paid me to watch a horror movie – I blame my brothers forcing me to watch Freddy Krueger at a very young age and mentally scarring me – but in my late teens, I was intrigued. Needless to say he lost his driving privileges for a long, long time. It’s written strongly and laced with undertones of an exprcista father who’s children just refuse to see the light, despite all of the “facts” to the contrary.
