Description

First published in 1978, five years after the release of the classic horror film from which it is adapted, The Wicker Man is a gripping horror classic.

It is the tale of Highlands policeman, Police Sergeant Neil Howie, on the trail of a missing girl being lured to the remote Scottish island of Summerisle. As May Day approaches, strange, shamanistic and erotic events erupt around him. Initially he is convinced that the girl has been abducted for human sacrifice - only to find that he may be the revellers quarry...

    What a poorly-written book. Not only is the main character an arrogant asshole, he's as dumb as a rock, but thinks he's so intelligent and talented. For someone who claims to be so accepting of others' religions, he is a really intolerant bastard. Everything he does is impetuous; none of his theories are based in proof. None of the characters are the least bit sympathetic.

    The writing itself is shit. The author will tell us something, and a character will repeat it a half page later. Most of the book is the sergeant bumbling around like an idiot, although I suppose that was intentional.

    And all the ridiculous sex scenes, where he just stands with his mouth gaping like he's mentally deficient while memorizing the details so he can "write up a report". My god. Is the movie this stupid?

    I'm sorry I wasted brain cells on this piece of crap. It wasn't even scary, just completely ridiculous on every level.

    I think the Twilight series was better written.

    A novel based on the screenplay of the original 1973 film starring Edward Woodward and Christopher Lee...I wasn't expecting any great literary classic. The film was based on David Pinner's book, Ritual. The main reason I picked it up, Radiohead did a great Wicker Man, Trumpton inspired video for their song 'Burn the Witch' and it made me hunt out the film and book. I have the DVD to watch now, as never seen it. But overall, the story kept me engaged right to the end. And it's not a good end...
