This month's selection: Let the Right One in by John Ajvide Lindqvist
The LIM College Book Club will meet on Sept. 30 at 6:15 p.m. in the Adrian G. Marcuse Library (Maxwell Hall - 2nd floor).
This month's selection Let the Right One In, also known as Let Me In, is a 2004 vampire fiction novel by Swedish writer John Ajvide Lindqvist. The story centers on the relationship between a 12-year-old boy, Oskar, and a 200-year-old vampire child, Eli. It takes place in Blackeberg, a working class suburb of Stockholm, in the early 1980s.
The book was a bestseller in the author's home country of Sweden and has been translated into Danish, German, Russian, English in 2007 and Finnish in 2008. A Swedish language film version by the same name, directed by Tomas Alfredson, was released in 2008 to widespread critical acclaim. An English language remake, to be directed by Matt Reeves, is scheduled for release in 2010.
