Death

I am reading the book The Exorcist, and itís pretty freaky. I donít particularly care for the writerís style. The way he describes people is in choppy fragments. Itís good to get a quick image of the character, but Iím not used to that style. I like long, elaborate descriptions. The book is not much different from The Omen; that whole thing with the weird kid, the priests, the rich parentÖ it feels a little fake. You could tell by reading them that both books were written with cinema in mind. And of course, they are both about death.
