Call me an optimist, but I maintain that my daughter will survive the death of her fish despite me. The book jumps back and forth from different characters perspectives allowing you to explore each event of the story from different perspectives in a way that is easy to follow and very satisfying. It is a play on the concept in which says that vampires cannot enter a house unless invited.

Not strange sounds and creaking doors creepy. Then relentlessly pursuing him, Håkan manages to trap Eli in a basement and tries to rape Eli, but Eli fights him off and escapes.
What does Eli want from Oskar? Technically the book is way I recommend watching the Swedish version of the movie. The story is brutal and unsettling and, at times, eerie. Why did he do this? Vampires at their Anne Ricean best! Horror movies have a way of doing that to you. It just got a bit too much. There are merely things that happen, the characters witness and instigate them, but as the story develops all the events and props are interconnected.

Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last---revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day.
Did I mention this is a vampire novel? He willingly leaves the school. If he had cared about preserving whatever remaining part of Eli that was innocent and good? There are also more characters. When he saw the Morse code that was taped to the wall, he felt like tapping his message to Oskar, to tell him what Eli is. The narration throughout the entire book was extremely realistic as well, not once did it feel strained; the conversations were so perfectly written, the way people actually speak; and I could always feel how the characters were feeling. The film is rather empathetic to his character, and to his suffering, but the book also informs you that he is definitely a pedophile. In fact it's really about childhood neglect and the vampire stuff can be read as an extended poetic symbol. There was no particular gurney for children and few things made Benke feel as uncomfortable as seeing the empty spaces left over on the trolley when he was transporting the body of a child; the little figure under the white cover, pushed up against the headboard.
In the dead of night, Oskar receives new neighbors, including a young girl about his own age who gives the name Eli. Which is why, against the odds, they became friends.

Hopefully at some future date you can take it out and rekindle those emotions and bask in that one, perfect moment again. Something strange is going on in the building's basement - and the price of entry is just a little blood. He wants to be a famous murderer. The setting adds to the sinister atmosphere.

But this book also has friendship, innocence, tenderness, trust, truth, care, concern and love. The Lord rolled a dice, came up six, Elias was the seventh. La amistad entre estos dos personajes se me hizó fascinante, todas las revelaciones y el apoyo entre ambos fue refrescante de leer pero nunca se quita de la ecuación el hecho de que Eli es peligrosa y que necesita comer y, muchas veces, que la ayuden.
Virginia survives, but starts turning into a vampire. And a deeply moving fable about rejection, friendship and loyalty.

Everything in this film is well-made in synchronization. So, feel free to discuss your opinions down yonder re: Reeves's gilded lily bastardization.
