Another book I read about 2 years ago that I thought I'd review. I'm actually more of a fan of the movie Exorcist 3, which made me curious about Blatty's work. He said he never intended the first movie to be "horror", and I think it shows in this novel. I'd personally class it more as a kind of "noir" with supernatural elements as an exercise in the theological musings of its author, who's a devout Catholic. Scary? No. But that's not the intent.
