Shaktitaxe This is a really chilling and frightening story. So just to get this out of the way: Sxorcista are few scenes that had me completely grossed out but this book is a definite page turner. Most of the book was about the psycharists that were treating her and their thoughts about what was causing her mental illness. Lol, and it was scary as hell and seemed real. If you are ever feeling irregular, this scene works better than a bran muffin and cup of coffee.

In our sleep, pain, which cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, come wisdom through the awful grace of God.
It all started with shifted some books around and finding this ratty well loved copy of The Exorcist that inexplicably found its way into my book collection. The Mysterious copy of The Exorcist. When I was in middle school I rode the bus to school and every day this teenager with rumpled hair and scuffed motorcycle boots would catch a ride with us. He had been clocked for speeding by the cops and had led them on a merry chase around the countryside until he turned a corner too quickly, hit gravel, and rolled his car.
Needless to say he lost his driving privileges for a long, long time. He would always sit in the front and there was always this sweet scent coming off his clothes that later when I went to college and attended my first party I had that ah ha moment. He always had a paperback novel with him, usually of the horror genre, and he would studiously ignore us and read his book.
It was called The Exorcist. So he started reading to us. We never got the whole story just bits here and there. Sometimes he would disappear for a while usually because he was jammed up in a little more trouble than normal.
We were enraptured. He scared the crap out of us. Those moments on the bus with him reading to us and scaring us are some of my most fond childhood memories. Boy, did we feel like we were getting away with something.
The dialogue was horrible. How could this guy sell millions of copies of this book? I did some research. It seems that William Peter Blatty finished writing the rough draft of this book and was offered a lucrative screenwriting job and never polished the book. An editor, obviously not someone in the same category as Maxwell Perkins, allowed the book to go to print as basically a rough draft.
Decades later Blatty is asked to read the book for the audio version. Blatty went back through and polished and rewrote and even added a critical scene to the book. It was released in time for the fortieth anniversary edition. William Peter Blatty looking like he is ready for his casting call for a spaghetti western. The Dodge City Public library, they never has anything I absolutely need immediately, had a copy of the fortieth anniversary edition.
Praise the book gods! The difference between the books is a two star rating which I was already worried about how I was going to explain that rating to the legions of fans out there, and a four star rating which is much easier and much more fun to write a review for.
So if you have thoughts of reading this book make sure you read the fortieth anniversary edition because as Blatty stated. The priest Damien Karras, who also happens to be a psychologist, finds himself confronting not only an evil entity beyond his wildest imaginations, but also his personal struggles with his own faith. He is damaged, dark, and brooding Jason Miller is Damien Karras in the movie.
He dared not love again and lose. That loss was too great, that pain too keen. He bowed his head and placed the consecrated Host in his mouth, where in a moment it would stick in the dryness of his throat.
And of his faith. He fathers forth whose beauty is past change. Praise him. Regan or Rags as her mother likes to call her starts exhibiting strange behavior, talking in tongues, and levitating. It is never really explained how or why she becomes possessed. Unless I somehow missed that part. She goes from being a creative, likable, normal twelve year old girl into something that is not only horrifying, but barely recognizable as human. Linda Blair played Regan in the famous movie version.
Karras shifted his gaze to the tangled and thickly matted hair; to the wasted arms and legs and distended stomach jutting up so grotesquely; then back to the eyes: they were watching him Terrifying stuff!
Media suggested hysteria. Iconic shot from the movie. The church has a priest who had performed the last exorcism in He is an elderly Jesuit priest named Lankester Merrin. The two priests know they are over their heads, but in a true act of courage and faith take on the demon. No wonder the demand for priests and their knowledge of exorcisms went up exponentially. The tour of s horror will continue with Jaws.
Stay tuned. This was the case that inspired William Peter Blatty to write this book. Instead of a girl this case involved a thirteen year old boy named Roland Doe. Walter Halloran a Catholic priest of the Society of Jesus performed the exorcism. The setting: St. Louis, Missouri. Exorcism House in St.

Roosevelt when the President was cutting the ribbon for the Queens—Midtown Tunnel , telling him, "For when you have company. Movie critic Jerry Stein called it a "masterpiece" in The Cincinnati Post, and Peter Travers described it as "the finest large-scale American surrealist film ever made" in People magazine. Blatty directed the film. The first sequel, Exorcist II: The Heretic , was disappointing both critically and commercially. As described by Blatty, this new, updated edition features new and revised material. The 40th Anniversary Edition of The Exorcist will have a touch of new material in it as part of an all-around polish of the dialogue and prose. First time around I never had the time meaning the funds to do a second draft, and this, finally, is it.
