Let the Right One In Summary


Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

**The international bestseller and the book behind the film and play Let Me In**

'The new Stephen King' The Times
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.

Let the Right One In Reviews


'A terrifying supernatural story yet also a moving account of friendship and salvation' * Guardian *
'A whiff of the new Stephen King. Don't miss it' * The Times *
'Lindqvist has reinvented the vampire novel and made it all the more chilling by setting it in the kind of sink estate we all know from the media. Immensely readable and highly disturbing' * Daily Express *
'Some truly scary bits ... will haunt your dreams. Best read by sunlight' * Independent on Sunday *

About John Ajvide Lindqvist


John Ajvide Lindqvist is a Swedish author, born in 1968. He grew up in Blackeberg, a suburb of Stockholm. He wanted to become something awful and fantastic. First he became a conjurer and came in second in the Nordic card trick championship. Then he was a stand-up comedian for twelve years, before writing Let the Right One In.
