AN UNINVITED BLOOD SUCKER

I returned from the Sunshine Coast hinterland with a tick in the top of my head. It had been there a week. Being from Victoria, I had no idea. Even the doctor who pulled it out with tweezers, didn’t know that it was an arthropod. She thought it was a growth of some kind. I was thankful that it was only a tick but it has certainly left me with a lump and a nagging headache.

Funnily enough, I have just finished reading the blood sucking novel, ‘Let the Right One In‘ by John Ajvide Lindqvist. I love the story, such a different take on vampires.

I saw the movie first and thought it was truly beautiful. So I was expecting the novel to have the same feel, but it doesn’t. It’s a page turner though. I think I like the movie better, especially the ending.

I’m now reading his other translated novel, ‘Handling the Undead’ which is a somewhat humorous take on zombies.
