The Exorcist (novel) – Wikipedia

Harsh statement I know In the novel, the killer’s motivation, which involves a character we meet only once in a complete throw-away of a chapter, is resolved off-page when we’re told that character died from a stroke, and so the killer just stops killing and — literally — lies down and dies.

No trivia or quizzes yet.

Waste your time and read this book. Parts of this book are incredible, parts rambling nonsense. I get that, so I’m cool with the denouement. Kinderman was very entertaining! Imagine being scared by someone you love.

It’s written strongly and laced with undertones of an exhausted father who’s children just refuse to see the light, despite all of the “facts” to the contrary. But, look, because I adore you, I’ll let this slide and willing to put Blatty and Legion in the rearview mirror.

Blatty has crafted an intricately complete allegory about the modern divergence between strictly rational scientific thought and the traditional ideas about faith and religion. The demon is arrogant and pitiless, doesn’t consider Father Karras a worthy opponent because it detected doubt in him; however, it is Father Karras who will defeat him.

The Exorcist

The dialogue were crisp and very very on point. What Else is wrong with it: Why is this relevant to this review? Some characters carry over, but this is pretty much a standalone, with its own points to make. I admit I should have watched it sooner. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. When the oddities begin to manifest themselves into verbal and physical attacks on others, Chris is left to grasp at straws and is pushed in the direction of a psychiatrist.

We mourn the blossoms of May because they are to wither; but we know that May is one day to have its revenge upon November, by the revolution of that solemn circle which never stops which teaches us in our height of hope, ever to be sober, and in our depth of desolation, never to despair.

The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty

This is a topic that I’ve always found very intriguing and one that I probably think a lot about myself. I always assumed that it was a cheap potboiler, heavy on shock value who can forget the green vomit? Then followed by different killings and all these pointed to the works of a serial killer called Gemini.

In the Malay Archipelago, where possession is even today an everyday, common occurrence, the possessing spirit of someone dead often causes the possessed to mimic its gestures, voice and mannerisms so strikingly, that relatives of the deceased will burst into tears.

I was just a young boy when the film was released and remember that there was heaps of controversy at the time. Even IF this book had picked up the day after The Exorcist and continued the exact same story, just due to the way it’s written, it wouldn’t feel the same. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

You gotta be impressed with a book that inspires a movie that managed to turn entire generations off of pea soup. A lot of people were like “Shit, this guy can write”. Still Kinderman is an intriguing detective and we do get some emotional scenes.

Even some conversations, they are the same in terms of dialogue, but the mood of them are perceived in a different blayty in the book, giving some new angles to the dynamics between characters. It has one of my favorite “the making of” documentaries.

Decades later Blatty is asked to read the book for the audio version. I know, shame on me, but you see, I thought I wouldn’t be able to take it seriously. Intense just doesn’t seem to cover it. Also, the dialogue is far more severe in the book than the movie could likely have gotten away with at the time.
