I came to Little Star after John Ajvide Lindqvist's debut novel Let the Right One In turned into the scariest book I'd read since Helter Skelter, more unsettling than Stephen King at his best. I was more reminded of David Lynch throughout. Lindqvist is not writing books for everybody. They're dar...

John Ajvide Lindqvist hit the ground running with the excellent Let The Right One In, which resurrected the tired vampire trope into a new, darker being, showing the paranormal romancers how it should be done. He somehow managed to maintain the pace with the "difficult" second and third novels, H...

Little Star started strong but petered out for me. I guess it's because, rather than following a linear narrative the whole way through, Lindqvist divides the story into two separate sections each about the life of a different little girl - Theres, who's born a psychopath, and Teresa, who becomes...

So. SO. This book... I think this is the goriest, most violent, brutal, graphic book I've ever read. And it was inspired by ABBA... so that's fun! Little Star is the horrifying story of an abandoned baby who is found to have a powerful and sinister talent; as she grows up her talent for singing i...

I am going to keep this short and sweet. I am honestly baffled how this made the top 20 list of scariest books out there. I was torn between boredom for a good 1/3 of this book and then just straight up baffled by the time I got to the end. This story starts out with a man who finds a baby that i...

From a relatively promising, almost incendiary start to a story, this book practically flat-lines as soon as the tale of 'The Other Girl' is introduced to the extent of very nearly breaking into the realm of utter tedium. It is only through a degree of force of will that I have even delved as dee...

For some reason this book left me cold – cold in a, really, type of a way. I didn’t find it as good as Handling the Undead or Let Me In. While the book starts off very well, it seems to descend into a maelstrom of violence intended to shock. Maybe it’s because I live in America where there is to...

John Lindqvist has become one of my favorite writers whose books I eagerly look forward to. When I have his book in my hand, I know I'm going to be setting aside as much time as possible to race through through the story because his books are hard to put down. I enjoy his literary style and his c...

I usually review books in the same language I read them in, but I'll make an expection here. This book sat on my shelf for more than a year. I bought it immediately upon publication, but after having read a review that totally slaughtered it, I was sceptical. I make a point of staying clear of ba...

'Little Star' or 'How Listening to ABBA Leads to Massacres'. No, but seriously ... this is a downright creepy book, with lots of beautifully interwoven themes on adolescence, bullying, the modern preoccupation with fame for its own sake, consumer culture, the repression of the primal and poisonous...
