Psycho read

I thought I hadn't done a reading suggestion for a while and today was a good time ti do it. So today's reading suggestion is: Psycho by Robert Bloch, which I read last year. Because there was an original novel to the classic Alfred Hitchcock movie. As much crime fiction as it is horror thriller, it's a gripping read even if you know the story already. Because if this genre duality, for Halloween lovers like myself, it is a great story to read while the holiday is still far away, but already in the back of your mind. And it's fun to notice the little differences between the source material and its far more famous adaptation (Norman Bates for instance is middle aged, overweight and ugly in the book). Some books read like novels, this one you read like you'd watch a movie.
