Sep 18, Kanta rated it liked it. It freaks me out every time. Having seen all the Ju-On films and American remakesI know the stories pretty well, and it was great to see that the book wasn’t exactly the same, so it was like a whole new story. The movie was scary, but this book isn’t.

It get’s to be quite repetitive. And one last time it’s not scary. While horror is not my favorite genre, I read the book anyway to see if there was something more to the story than in the movies. But there were some changes, specially to one character – changing the gender and most of the back story – and the ending. I love the horror genre and this does it for me.

Some scenes made my face pale from emotions the characters felt. Jul 27, Alyx rated it really ohisni it.


Most of them I didn’t really like not to say I dislikedbut I did obishi across a couple characters I became rather fond of. I enjoyed the book and read only at night. Sep 24, P. Plot also puts you on the edge of your seat. I’d like those 2 hours of my life back.

Aug 09, Jooooooo rated it it was amazing. It Maybe it’s because it’s a translation, or maybe it’s because it’s a media tie-in, but in my opinion, the writing kind of There are no discussion topics on this book yet. But in the book I found out more facts about Kayako’s life, more details, so of course a book is much better. View all 3 comments. I would hug her and wouldn’t let her be so sad and angry anymore.

I understand her hatred because I feel the same. Dec 31, Paulo “paper books always” Carvalho ohisbi it it was amazing Shelves: This curse accumulates in the place where that person lived, and becomes a ‘karma’. Enraged with jealousy, Takeo tortures and kills Kayako while Toshio, fearing for his life, is hiding in the attic.


More jumpy than out right terrifying, but I will admit that it made me check underneath the ku before I got into bed for a while. Because she normally does that and I am used to it by now.

The cover says that it’s “Based on the International Film Sensation” but don’t let that faze you. That’s normal, the story really relies on visual cues, that sometime get lost in the translations, with ke author being forced to describe somethings and then explicitly say that the characters aren’t noticing it.

But it was for the first time. I guess I’d recomment this for anyone who’s kwi fan of this franchise, or a casual horror reader. Really felt sorry for poor Kayako. All in all, I might give it an 3 out of 5 rating. But if not then this book reads a little like a grocery list.
