I enjoyed this book. However, this is one of the few times that I think the movie was better than the book. The book has the feel of a typical mystery novel. The movie had a very haunting quality to it . Beautiful,ethereal Gene Tierney was perfectly cast as Laura and of course, there is the wonderful classic theme music. That said, the book is still worth the read.

Although this book has very little blood and gore as do the more modern mysteries, it is a classic story on which an equally classic movie was based. Well worth the read .
