Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist Summary

**The international bestseller and the book behind the film and play Let Me In** 'The new Stephen King' The Times Oskar and Eli. In very different ways, they were both victims. Which is why, against the odds, they became friends. And how they came to depend on one another, for life itself. Oskar is a 12-year-old boy living with his mother on a dreary housing estate at the city's edge. He dreams about his absentee father, gets bullied at school, and wets himself when he's frightened. Eli is the young girl who moves in next door. She doesn't go to school and never leaves the flat by day. She is a 200-year-old vampire, forever frozen in childhood, and condemned to live on a diet of fresh blood. John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel, a huge bestseller in his native Sweden, is a unique and brilliant fusion of social novel and vampire legend. And a deeply moving fable about rejection, friendship and loyalty.

Let the Right One In by Anne Billson Summary

Audiences can't get enough of fang fiction. Twilight, True Blood, Being Human, The Vampire Diaries, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Blade, Underworld, and the novels of Anne Rice and Darren Shan—against this glut of bloodsuckers, it takes an incredible film to make a name for itself. Directed by Tomas Alfredson and adapted for the screen by John Ajvide Lindqvist, The Swedish film Làt den rätte komma in (2008), known to American audiences as Let the Right One In, is the most exciting, subversive, and original horror production since the genre's best-known works of the 1970s. Like Twilight, Let the Right One In is a love story between a human and a vampire—but that is where the resemblance ends. Set in a snowy, surburban housing estate in 1980s Stockholm, the film combines supernatural elements with social realism. It features Oskar, a lonely, bullied child, and Eli, the girl next door. "Oskar, I'm not a girl," she tells him, and she's not kidding—she's a vampire. The two forge an intense relationship that is at once innocent and disturbing. Two outsiders against the world, one of these outsiders is, essentially, a serial killer. What does Eli want from Oskar? Simple companionship, or something else? While startlingly original, Let the Right One In could not have existed without the near century of vampire cinema that preceded it. Anne Billson reviews this history and the film's inheritence of (and new twists on) such classics as Nosferatu (1979) and Dracula (1931). She discusses the genre's early fliration with social realism in films such as Martin (1977) and Near Dark (1987), along with its adaptation of mythology to the modern world, and she examines the changing relationship between vampires and humans, the role of the vampire's assistant, and the enduring figure of vampires in popular culture.

The Pleasures of Structure by Julian Hoxter Summary

The Pleasures of Structure starts from the premise that the ability to develop a well understood and articulated story structure is the most important skill a screenwriter can develop. For example, good structure requires a great premise and rigorous character development. Without clear character motivations and goals--which are themselves indicative of key structural beats--your story is going exactly nowhere. Using the simple and flexible 'W' model of screenplay structure developed in the prequel Write What You Don't Know, Hoxter sets this out as its starting point. This model is tested against a range of examples which are chosen to explore the flexibility not only of that model but of movie storytelling more generally. Writers and students often worry that they are asked to work 'to formula'. This book will test that formula to breaking point. For example, the first case study will offer the example of a well written, professional, mainstream movie against which our later and more adventurous examples can be compared. So the lessons we learn examining the animated family adventure movie How To Train Your Dragon lead us directly to ask questions of our second case study, the acclaimed Swedish vampire movie Låt den Rätte Komma In (Let The Right One In). Both movies have protagonists with the same basic problem, the same goal, and they use the same basic structure to tell their stories. Of course they are very different films and they work on their audiences in very different ways. Our linked case studies will expose how simple choices, like reversing the order of elements of the protagonist's transformational arc and shifting ownership of key story beats, has an enormous impact on how we respond to a structural model that is otherwise functionally identical.

Compte les étoiles by Lois Lowry Summary

1943. Pour Annemarie Johansen, la vie à Copenhague est un mélange compliqué de vie familiale, d'école, de rationnement alimentaire et d'occupation allemande. Le courage semble une vertu lointaine. Au moment où les Nazis commencent à organiser les déportations des Juifs du Danemark, les Johansen recueillent la meilleure amie d'Annemarie, Ellen Rosen, désormais présentée comme faisant partie de la famille. Ellen et Annemarie doivent réfléchir très vite lorsque les soldats perquisitionnent et demandent en pleine nuit pourquoi Ellen n'est pas blonde comme ses soeurs. À travers les yeux d'Annemarie nous voyons comment la résistance danoise réussit à faire traverser le bras de mer les séparant de la Suède à la quasi-totalité de la communauté juive, qui compte alors près de sept mille personnes.

La couleur de la peur by Malorie Blackman Summary

"Le roman commence dans un train, lors d’une banale sortie scolaire. Un groupe d’adolescents tout ce qu'il y a de plus ordinaire. Mais très vite, tout bascule. Le train déraille et se retrouve suspendu au-dessus d’un précipice, dans une sorte de temporalité irréelle, entre la vie et la mort. Le jeune Kyle semble être le seul passager indemne. Et alors qu’il parcourt le wagon dévasté, tentant de porter secours à ses camarades inconscients, le récit bascule dans le surnaturel : Kyle se retrouve projeté dans l’esprit de ses camarades, au cœur de leurs plus grandes peurs. Le roman alterne alors entre les moments dans le train, où l’on comprend que Kyle lutte contre la mort, et le récit des cauchemars de ses amis, entre présent, passé, et futur, entre réalisme et fantastique. Histoires de guerre, vision d’un monde dévasté par les armes chimiques et les pluies acides. Histoires de monstres et de créatures mythiques. Histoires de meurtres. Histoires d’oppression, d’esclavage. Tous ces cauchemars sont d’une réalité hallucinante et fascinante, écrits de telle manière qu’on s’y identifie totalement. L’auteur réussit à donner de la chair à notre inconscient, à nos peurs ancestrales. La couleur de la peur est un roman sombre et noir mais porteur d’un message d’espoir : il est possible de faire face à nos peurs les plus profondes pour s’en libérer et les mettre à distance grâce aux mots."
