It was a dark and stormy night when Mary Crane glimpsed the unlit neon sign announcing the vacancy at the Bates motel Exhausted, lost, and at the end of her rope, she was eager for a hot shower and a bed for the night Her room was musty but clean and the plumbing worked Norman Bates, the manager, seemed nice, if a little odd.

  1. Nowadays, it seems like every horror movie is either a remake, a sequel or the kind of vile torture porn that makes you want to puke in your bag of popcorn Filming one of these flicks requires tens of millions of dollars for a platoon of pretty actors, gallons of fake blood, special effects and a marketing campaign Oddly, they don t seem to spend any money on scripts for these things.But Alfred Hitchcock only needed about nine grand to buy the rights to this book Then it only took a blonde, a sh [...]

  2. ugh this was just so good.I really love how short this was, so there was never a dull moment I still haven t seen any of the movie adaptations but I can only imagine how fast paced they must be.I will say, I binge watched Bates Motel not too long ago and that s the main reason I picked this up, but I loved how different this was in a way Bates Motel took a little nugget from this book and turned it into a much broad scope world and story which was awesome and this story is just a tiny piece Tha [...]

  3. When Mary Crane skips town with 40,000 of her boss s money, she drives and drives, bedding down at the Bates Motel She meets Norman Bates, who harbors secrets even interesting than stolen moneyEveryone knows the basic beats of Psycho due to the iconic Alfred Hitchcock film Woman gets knifed in the shower, psychotic mama s boy, etc When it popped up for ninety nine cents, I figured, what the hell Shooting Star Spiderweb was pretty good Psycho was definitely worth the buck.Inspired by real life s [...]

  4. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum 4.5 StarsThat s what I tell my boys all the time I hope they turn out just as friendly and loyal to their momma as Norman did.Is there anyone even on the planet who hasn t at least heard of Psycho before What can I say that you don t already know Well, I can confirm that this book is short at roughly 200 pages Due to its brevity, I can also say not a paragraph is wasted on filler Every scene that occurs does so for a reason What else Ah yes, the writing If [...]

  5. We all go a little crazy sometimes.My generation and everyone since has grown up with the concept of Psycho, stemming from Sir Alfred Hitchcock s 1960 thriller, but all this began with Robert Bloch s 1959 novel.Reading this after having seen the film and grown up with the story, I dealt with a fair amount of theatrical irony While the film stayed mostly true to Bloch s vision, there were some departures and these were enjoyable to experience Bloch s prose is tight and the atmosphere developed is [...]

  6. First published in 1959, there is no doubt about it, PSYCHO is an absolutely great horror classic.If by some freak of nature you happen to be in the dark regarding Robert Bloch s Psycho I will warn you not to go in the shower at the Bates Motel, and be green with envy that you can read the novel with no prior knowledge of the intriguing plot.If you are familiar with Alfred Hitchcock s movie version released in 1960 then you will notice two obvious differences when reading the book, the first one [...]

  7. 2.5 sensationalistic, dated, a tad ridiculous, entertaining stars OksI was mildly entertained while I mostly cringed characterst well formed.1950s stereotypes writing.written at a grade four level but for adults knowledge of psychopathology.rish, outlandish, unbelievable plausibilitylow no make that very lowdespite this I was entertained, mildly entertained but it would have sufficed to have just seen the movie and I have seen it several timesI will not move to Psycho the sequel.No Jaidee you wi [...]

  8. We re all not quite as sane as we pretend to be I am a great fan of Alfred Hitchcock and his films, but this is the only film that I haven t watched than once Sure, that includes a string of other Oscar winners like Shawshank Redemption and Forest Gump I m just a weirdo Psycho really scared me when I was young, though There was no way to explain how the silhouette of mother s chair rocked on its own while Norman was at the hotel I don t like unexplainable things.The novel was actually really go [...]

  9. Solo puedo decir que despu s de leer este libro estoy completamente obsesionada con todo lo que tenga que ver con psicosis, la pel cula me encanta y ahora estoy viendo la serie Bates Motel que es I N C R E B L EA pesar de ya saber cual era el plot twist del libro, me enganche desde el principio y lo termin de leer en 3 horas, definitivamente la pel cula es casi igual, excepto que en la novela podemos reconocer a Norman Bates m s como psic pata debido a que tb leemos lo que est pensando todo el t [...]

  10. First, it wasn t a scary as I thought it would be which is a very good thing for me, if you re wondering and secondly, I had foreseen everything that was going to happen at page 10 which, to be honest, is not as good This is, however, not the book s fault, as I see it I believe this is the case of a classic that has become so classic we start to think of it as trite, which in origin it mustn t have been at all It saddens me, obviously, but this phenomenon often occurs with works so great, and I [...]

  11. Horror is my go to genre, my bread and butter Although than 50 years have passed since the movie was made, Psycho remains at the top of the tree on my list of best horror flicks It s dated, certainly Filmed in black and white, complete with melodramatic music and exaggerated close ups, but it works beautifully by leaving something to the imagination The book, written in 1959, stands the proverbial test of time, as well You do not want Mother using her keys Quite right The pounding comes, then t [...]

  12. A gripping story If you ve seen the movie this is better, you get that missing insight of being in Norman s mind The story is a page turner Bloch is a good writer and has plotted the story well no sentence is wasted or boring After reading Darkly Dreaming Dexter I thought I would try and get into rambling mind of a different kind of killer Bates is obsessed with his mother wants to be like her And wants her to be part of him.Some factsThe novel Psycho , written by Robert Bloch, was actually part [...]

  13. What strikes me most about this book is the things for which its movie is known are ABSENT from these pages.The movie Psycho gave us that bedrock upon which all future slasher films were built sex death.The bad girl bad because she had premarital sex will die The virgin will live If you don t know these rules, you need to watch Scream Psycho the film actually opens in the bedroom, where our heroine is in her bra having just had sex with a man to whom she s not married.Norman Bates never sees any [...]

  14. Absolutely one of my favourite classic horror stories I loved Norman Bates in the tv show Bates Motel and I love him in this book I will not be posting a full review on my blog I don t have a lot to say about it

  15. Other than Norman being a Tubby Trooper in the book instead of the Starved Stanchion he is in the movie and television series, I found no glaring differences between the Hitchcock film and the book I can t even say that the book is better than the movie They are completely equal in my eyes Now the sequels I haven t a clue I have not seen the later movies, nor have I read the follow up novels Bloch published Psycho 2 and Psycho House Now that I ve tackled the first book, I feel comfortable moving [...]

  16. I ve been meaning to get around to reading this defining work of horror for quite some time In fact, SK recommended it to me within Danse Macabre, and I just knew that someday, somehow, I d come back around to it.Of course, this book was already old when I read that SK book back in 89 and now I feel kinda foolish for putting off this classic so damn long.What s my excuse I thought the story would be kinda you know old Out of date Without tension.I really shouldn t listen to myself.This was a pre [...]

  17. What a great classic to read leading up to Halloween And what better costume could you come up with than that of, my man, Norman Bates Just put on dead moms dress, smear on some make up and let s get crazy I think the book is very close to the movie version Obviously you get a greater visual of the shower scene in the movie, but the book really put me in the head of Norman and I could see the psycho in him much deeper than is revealed in the movie Psycho is well written, short, and gives a perf [...]

  18. Nota 4,5Antes de ler o livro, eu nunca tinha assistido ao filme e pra falar a verdade nem sabia do que se tratava Conhecia a famosa cena do chuveiro e s.Por conta disso, esse livro me surpreendeu bastante O clima de suspense dura por todas as p ginas, e a leitura flui muito r pido porque voc quer saber logo o que que t acontecendo de verdade O que achei mais interessante foi essa coisa do mist rio n o ser quem matou fulano Isso a gente j fica sabendo logo no come o e da pra frente o livro come a [...]

  19. 4.5 I really enjoy the read Something about the writing is so very well, psycho I m sure, even if you know the big plot twist who doesn t the book is addictive and completely interesting It has a great inside killer POV and a perfect pace, the last chapter is pure psychological gold Special for psycho thrillers fans and I would suggest reading the novel if you like the movie you ll definitely pay attention to certain details At the end Psycho is a great thriller book, it might have become the g [...]

  20. Well written Straightforward third party alternating narrations No wasted words Memorable classic scenes that have the ability to stay in your mind for a long time Who has not seen the movie Who does not remember the shower scene The house on the hill behind the hotel The old woman sitting on a rocking chair by the window This is a classic crime book featuring the popular serial killer called Norman Bates This 1959 book may not be the pioneer in this genre but the English film director and produ [...]

  21. The 1950 s a simpler innocent time when a man could dress up as his dead mother and kill people Oh memories Unless you live under a rock you know what Psycho is all about The famous shower scene I ve seen the movie probably 40x I m a Hitchcock fanatic but I had never read the book upon which the movie was based I had watched a documentary about the man who inspired it Ed Gein, btw he was really psycho I mean Mr Gein inspired both Psycho and Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs Quite the grues [...]

  22. Psycho felt like the perfect autumnal Halloween month read I m a big fan of the Hitchcock film adaptation, and I always wanted to read this, so was excited to see it on display in my local library Bloch s original novel is a quick read, despite having a not so fast paced plot, and really allows you to get into the head of not only Mary Crane, but of Norman Bates as well Norman s chapters were absolutely fascinating, and I loved seeing the constant narrative through his mind twisting and turning [...]

  23. If you ask the average person who wrote Psycho, they will probably say Alfred Hitchcock But we here at know better The book and movie were released very close together, and the subject matter was really strong for the time I think the book and movie are probably equally as good, but the movie really went on to greater acclaim due to the direction of Hitchcock The story was loosely based on Ed Gein as was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and a few stories as well I think almost anyone who saw the mov [...]

  24. This is a very entertaining novel whose only problem is that people who have watched Alfred Hitchcock s movie version will not be able to enjoy the surprises My thanks to the folks at theHorror Aficionados group for giving me the opportunity to read and discuss this and many other fine books.

  25. Hitchcock s adaptation of this book is a horror classic, and is one that is so iconic that it s part of common knowledge, regardless of whether the movie has actually been seen by the person holding an imaginary knife and screeching Ree Ree Ree Ree You know what sound I mean Don t look at me like that I have seen the movie, though it was years ago And so, going into the book with the foreknowledge of the plot and the twist, I was able to focus on the writing and the technique along with the stor [...]

  26. Bloch was inspired to write Psycho after a real life story of Ed Gein, a psychotic serial murderer who led a dual life Hitchcock was a fan and turned this book into one of the BEST classic horror movies EVER made Loved this book.

  27. Even though I ve seen the Hitchcock movie, I still really enjoyed the novel though I wished it was a bit longer I will say that the characters are definitely likable in the movie, but the book makes up for that by exploring the relationship between Norman Bates and his mother much The novel also feel a bit sinister, and being inside Norman s head can be quite disturbing Overall, Psycho is a quick, engaging, and thrilling read I definitely recommend checking it out, whether you ve seen the mov [...]
