The OtherN year old twins led to widespread critical acclaim for the novel which was successfully filmed from Thomas Tryon's own screenplayThis edition features original artwork by surrealist artist Harry O Morri A stranger on the Internet instructed me to review this book so I guess I’ll do as I’m toldThis book is okay Actually the second half of this book is great but still not great enough to resurrect the full work to anywhere beyond its three star label of mediocrityOften with mystery novels there is a slow but steady build of intensity a momentum that gathers in a such a way that the reader remains riveted to the end That occurs here as well so I don’t ascribe my disappointment with the first half of the book to any lack of momentum on its part Instead I think I was turned off by the writing In fact I’d say that the plot drive in the second half was so well executed that it overcame what I would otherwise have to describe as naïve whimsical writing But in the author’s defense he was at the time of this book’s initial publication anyway a naïve writer The Other was Thomas Tryon’s first novel written after having spent much of his early adulthood as a Hollywood film actor The Other is a frame story but the identity of the narrator is unknown until the book’s denouement The story involves two twin boys one of whom is a vicious evildoer while the other acts as his doe eyed apostle Of course every evil deed performed is accompanied by telling amounts of circumstantial ambiguity so one could probably see “The Big Reveal” coming a mile away especially if he’s seen enough M Night Shyamalan films Still the reveal and the events which occur after it are well executed as I stated earlier which makes this book—all being said—ok

Yeah This is the biggest granddaddy of them all and easily the best one of its kind Totally recommended for all you fans of horror
