The Amityville Horror, by Jay Anson

  • Title:  The Amityville Horror
  • Author:  Jay Anson
  • Borrowed from Fairfax, VA Public Library (audiobook)
  • Started:  7/19/2016
  • Finished: 7/22/2016
I had this one on my list for a long time, and now that I've finally read it (thanks to the reciprocal borrowing agreements between the public libraries in the DC Metro Region) -- I was pretty disappointed.

Having read back-to-back two blockbuster books from the 1970s, it is easy to see why one of them was huge (Deliverance) and much harder to understand the other (this on, Amityville Horror).

The story was written out so much like a dragnet episode (on December 21st, so & so did such & such) that I really found it not scary of moving. 

Anyway, glad to have it behind me, even if I did not love it.
