Wow - did this book manage to suck not only the money from my wallet and time from my lifespan, but it damn near killed my will to live as well.

I am an Elm Street fan from the early days and have always enjoyed collecting the books that either tied in with the movie (such as "Nightmares on Elm Street: Freddy Krueger's Seven Sweetest Dreams", an anthology edited by Martin H. Greenberg) or novelizations of the film, but this book was, in my opinion, a bastardization of literature from page one.

The novel was interesting, but the true gem was the creative addition the Writer put into the novel. The Writer added a journal between chapters and just like the stars of the movie, he was also being haunted by the iconic Freddy. Not too many writers of adopted work put that kind of energy into their work. This Writer thought outside the box.

I did feel that the novel works at times marginally better than the movie - but it's still a far cry from being good or at least decent.

The writing feels often forced and makes for a slow read so that even at just over 200 pages (and with a minor crush on Heather Langenkamp) it still took me quite some time to get through it.
