I had watched the movie years ago, and was afraid that knowing the ending might ruin the book for me in some way, but I found it to be quite an enjoyable, quick read. I appreciated the atmospheric, subtly building nightmare for the main character, instead of being hit in the beginning with in your face gore and scare tactics used in so many of the modern horror fiction books I've read. A great, classic horror story to get me in the mood for Halloween!
