Read in December, 2007

A fascinating exposition about what it means to be a monster cleverly wrapped into a chilling horror classic. The book is indescribably better than any filmed versions (all of which remove the meaning of the title completely in my opinion), and one I consistently recommend for others to read. It's short and easy to get through, driven by fast-paced dialogue and just enough description.
