I finished the book a couple of days ago. I really liked it, couldn't put it down. I expected the whole story to be about the actual exorcism and was pleasantly surprised by the way that the story developed, the way the tension increased. I love the character of the exorcist, the way his presence is expected thoughout, but the reader has to wait for him. I loved some of his thoughts on God, good and evil. Blatty's Catholicism was definitely evident at that point. And of course, the ending. I cried!
Some of the parts were seriously disgusting and sick (things that the poor possessed girl does) and what scares me most about this is that it is all based on a true story. Yikes!
Any fans of the book here?
I haven't seen the film and am not sure I'd like to. Is it any good?
