it was ok
Read in January, 2006

Having being scared to death by the Japanese film, I figured it was necessary for me to read the book upon which the film was based. Sadly, the book did not have the same scary quality as the film. The book excels in building suspense, and was enjoyable enough to read, but I felt it lacked the certain something that had scared me in the film. This was one case where I felt a film of a book was better than the book itself, however perhaps if I had read the book first I would have been more critical of the film - perhaps the imiagination that one would have had to use to create their own monster in their heads while readng the book would have scared me more than the film. Sadly, i'll never know!
