Description

Originally published in 1971, The Exorcist is now a major television series on FOX. It remains one of the most controversial novels ever written and went on to become a literary phenomenon: It spent fifty-seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, seventeen consecutively at number one. Inspired by a true story of a child’s demonic possession in the 1940s, William Peter Blatty created an iconic novel that focuses on Regan, the eleven-year-old daughter of a movie actress residing in Washington, D.C. A small group of overwhelmed yet determined individuals must rescue Regan from her unspeakable fate, and the drama that ensues is gripping and unfailingly terrifying.

Two years after its publication, The Exorcist was, of course, turned into a wildly popular motion picture, garnering ten Academy Award nominations. On opening day of the film, lines of the novel’s fans stretched around city blocks. In Chicago, frustrated moviegoers used a battering ram to gain entry through the double side doors of a theater. In Kansas City, police used tear gas to disperse an impatient crowd who tried to force their way into a cinema. The three major television networks carried footage of these events; CBS’s Walter Cronkite devoted almost ten minutes to the story. The Exorcist was, and is, more than just a novel and a film: it is a true landmark.

Purposefully raw and profane, The Exorcist still has the extraordinary ability to disturb readers and cause them to forget that it is “just a story.” Published here in this beautiful fortieth anniversary edition, it remains an unforgettable reading experience and will continue to shock and frighten a new generation of readers.

    It is almost imposible for me to write a review, on anything i read or watch, i will only do it in exeptions, either because the material was really awfull and i need to warn others of it, or because of its exceptional content. This book is by far one of the best books iv ever read! the wording and dialoge is superb. i had overlooked this book many times, thinking that it would ruined the movie for me, but it only just enhanced the film. GREAT GREAT NOVEL. LOVED IT!!!!!!!

    I read this book when it first came out. I highly recommend it. The writing is excellent and told in a way that you felt you were in that room during the exorcism. I give it 5 stars.

    Immensely entertaining, addictive and riveting. The kind of book that you cannot put down and find yourself wanting for more. I remember watching the film as a much too young child and being horrified by the storyline. Finally reading the book some 30 years later the story more than holds up. It’s terrifying, believable and so authentically detailed, you are immersed in the story and shell-shocked by the nature of the beast, feeling the pain and anguish along with the characters. Bravo!

    Saw the screen version at too young an age, remains the scariest film I have ever seen. But, the book proves that the mind's eye is a far better screenwriter. Can't unread, can't unsee. If you like to be disturbed, read on.
  • The novel you've been waiting for...without the wait.

    Take it from a guy who used to timidly say "No" to scary movies and novels and now can't stay away from them. I too saw the movie before reading the book, and the former sort of gave a lot away. Still, the dark atmosphere and the grim detail kept me coming back for more. Plus, the timing couldn't have been more perfect. I read the book during a time when I struggled with myself and my faith. I could totally relate to Father Karras and almost everything he was going through. And, not surprisingly I'll bet, the story truly began for me when the exorcism did. Now, if you are convinced that you can bare to imagine the horror and the drama, with no weak constitution, remember: you get NO COMMERCIALS.

    A fun read! Almost identical to the film. As a fan of the genre I had a great time revisiting the story.
