Book Review: 'Let the Old Dreams Die' by John Ajvide Lindqvist

March 30, 2014
dsp By AMANDA ALEXANDER (aalexander@sungazette.com) , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

The imagination of John Ajvide Lindqvist is both beautiful and terrifying in its vastness. His 2008 masterpiece, "Let the Right One In," turned the vampire novel genre on its head and showed - in the characters of children - the way society's "monsters" can be quite human, and the way people can truly be monsters. The story of Oskar and Eli haunts readers long after they reach the story's grisly end ... which is why I raced to pick up this book of short stories that promised sequels to both "Let the Right One In" and the 2011 zombie novel "Handling the Undead." But these pieces are just the icing on the cake - almost every story in this collection is gripping, creepy and hard to forget.
