However, what I like about this book is its minimalist approach in writing and the scary ambiance that this creates quite contradictory but that is how effective the writer is.

But the book was good enough in that there were points that would just completely get me and I’d have to pause from reading to utter a wide-eyed “woah! I know it deserves all of the stars, because it’s very good, but I don’t know if I really love it or not. There are oh reviews yet.

Enraged with jealousy, Takeo tortures and kills Kayako while Toshio, fearing for his life, is hiding in the attic. Overall, you are better off just watching the movie.

That’s normal, the story really relies on visual cues, that sometime get lost in the translations, with the author being forced to describe somethings and then explicitly say that the characters aren’t noticing it.


Edition 1st DH Press ed. This is the type of story that if your daughter suddenly slams the door of her room, you would get startled.

O 01, Kd Kocak is currently reading it Shelves: Jan 21, Marianne rated it really liked it Shelves: The book itself was less frightening, and I don’t think that’s a good thing. One of the most graphic pieces of horror you’ll ever read. This is one of my most favorite books ever. Well if you’ve seen the movie, and it scared you to the point that you almost crapped yourself this is definitely the book for you.

May 25, Aida Jacobs rated it it was ok Shelves: Jul 12, Kuriztee rated it it was amazing. Due to the success of the two videos, a ohoshi adaptation was made in Japan and was distributed in the US. I had spent years avoiding The Grudgewhere just a single still image of Kayako would give me nightmares throughout my later childhood I think I first learned of its existence when I was six or seven.

Any fan of “The Grudge” movie.

More jumpy than out right terrifying, but I will admit that it made me check underneath the covers before I got into bed for a while. I suppose I understand what the author of this novelization was trying ohizhi do, going with the themes of repetition that happen in the novel, just like in the movies, the curse forcing things to happen the same way to different people – but still.


Really I think the author has a Grudge against women and it really shows. Be the first one to write a review. Yep, that’s such a “Ju On thing” hehe. She marries ojishi sadistic man, Takeo who has a medical condition called oligospermia or low sperm count. Dec 06, Maverynthia rated it did not like it Shelves: After seeing the American film at the cinema and eventually buying the Japanese film, I found this ohisni be a refreshing read because it explained the films in much greater detail.

I guess I’d recomment this for anyone who’s a fan of this franchise, or a casual horror reader. Based on the first two stright to video Kie movies and the first Japanese cinema movie this book was quite an interesting read.

But in the book I found out more facts about Kayako’s life, more details, so of course a book is much kwi. The epilogue was very sweet aswell. Sep 25, Soha Eldeeb rated it liked it. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
