    1. Great literary horror is few and far between, so when my friends at * started raving about a book called Come Closer, I had to read it.Sara Gran has written more than a dark fiction about demon possession, she wrote a book about the female psyche, about the impulse of civilized people to do harm to those we love and those we don't know, and she gave her story a shot of the old "turn of the screw" by having a pretty, confident architect inadvertently invite the spirit Naamah from Jewish lore to t [...]

    2. Many of the popular horror story tropes don't really affect me. Vampires, zombies, slasher killers, monsters. But demonic possession always freaks me out a little. Losing control of myself has always been one of my biggest fears, and the idea that a purely evil spirit is capable of controlling my susceptible body, soul, and thoughts is a little nerve-wracking. This book is a very well-done portrait of one woman as she slowly loses that control.Author Sara Gran skillfully crafts this perfectly pa [...]

    3. This was not a bad read. It was a nice, quick, change of pace. It tells the story of demonic possession from the perspective of the victim. It is very atmospheric in the beginning and the author selected an excellent, abandoned setting with the correct number of stray dogs and empty apartments for the story. The narrator’s thoughts and actions become increasingly disturbing as the plot progresses. The story does become predictable fairly early on and the reader will probably guess the ending l [...]

    4. I read "Come Closer" in one day (it was an exceptionally short read) and in broad daylight. And while I was reading it, I was thinking "yeah, good story, interesting, creepy, but not downright scary." All along I was thinking that it wouldn't affect me the way other books/movies about possession would (The Exorcist traumatized me severely as a kid. I kept thinking that if I slept in my bed it would start shaking and I would be possessed. Yes, yes, I had an extremely active imagination like most [...]

    5. For those of you who know Sara Gran for her crime novels and read the quote "probably this year's scariest novel" and wondered what was going on, I point you to the other quote that starts "like Patricia Highsmith" and hopefully you understand just why this is a scary novel and then continue your enjoyment of Sara Gran as an interesting new literary voice.For those readers who take a look at that nice generic quote from The Charlotte Observer "It's terrifying" then combine it with the demonic po [...]

    6. It started with a strange tapping sound. And then small, subtle changes in personality. More fights with her husband. Bizarre impulses. Before long, Amanda feels her life spiraling out of control. She suspects something is terribly wrong. But when she tries to take action to get her life back on track, she finds her choices overrun by someone--or rather, something--else usurping her will.This story is not scary, but it is pretty unsettling with some disturbing scenes and eerie undertones. It's n [...]

    7. Shocking how an ordinary persons life can be turned upside down and life destroyed, if you are unlucky enough to be possessed by a Demon then this will happen. This happens to Amanda, the main protagonist, and she tries eventually once aware of the possession to rid herself from it.The story is interesting and I like the way the author has used some Jewish folklore in the story. The story could have been more deeper sometimes the writing jumps to situations or days at start of chapters but conce [...]

    8. 4.5 StarsThis is an incredibly short novel that manages to pack a punch in a limited number of pages. The details of the story are vivid and memorable, creating a sense of unease.Told in the first person perspective, most of the horror of this book resides within the mind of protagonist. This unique choice blends together elements of traditional horror with psychological suspense. The story itself is fairly quiet and slow paced with minimal action. This story is more contemplative than scary. Th [...]

    9. I discovered this book last year at a bookstore and was immediately attracted by the french cover (/book/show/76) and then the synopsis. But at the time, only the hardcover was available and it was too expensive so I waited for the paperback version goodness, I did well. No wonder we say "Don't judge a book by its cover".The good points of this book are that it's short and easy to read that's all for me.The only thing that comes to mind after the last page (well actually during the whole thing) [...]

    10. A very slight book--it took an hour or two to read--that I can't figure out how much I like. I think I need to file this under "watch this author". Although this book didn't totally work for me, I did like the writing well enough. I just found the MC's passivity a little offputting. (view spoiler)[For me, the subtext of a character descending into madness actually works better than the actual text of a character slowly succumbing to demonic possession. (hide spoiler)]

    11. This book creeped me out. That coming from someone who lives on a steady diet of horror. If you love horror, you have to read this one.

    12. That was such a knock-out gut-punch of a short read. Reminds me that even the horror genre tropes I don't love (possession in this case), if in the right hands, can surprise and decimate me. That ending, hot damn, I'm still reeling from it. I highly recommend checking it out. Not since Paul Tremblay's A Head Full of Ghosts have I been blindsided and fallen so in love with a book about (or maybe not about) demonic possession. I will have to check out My Best Friend's Exorcism next to see how it s [...]

    13. Come Closer is a demon possession story and a story of a disintegrating marriage, kicked off on Valentine's Day, no less, with a certain lack of intimacy and trust between husband and wife (Amanda) after six years of marriage. Gran manages to write a creepy and humorous story in the beginning, but the second half wasn’t quite as interesting, except to sort of finish what she (Gran, Amanda, the demon) started. One possibly notable aside is that Gran mentions, in one line only, a doctor who died [...]

    14. The ultimate measuring stick for novels of demonic possession remains and will always be The Exorcist. That novel's pacing began with a niggling sense of dread as the hints of possession were beginning to take hold.Sara Gran uses a similar pace to possession, but from a first-person perspective. Amanda's possession begins with same niggling sense that something is there, and things begin to unhinge for her from then on out.This is a very fast read, and best read alone in a quiet room. Gran does [...]

    15. I wasn't sure what to expect with this one and its front cover praise, proclaiming it to be the year's scariest book. I don't know if it was, but then again I don't know/probably haven't read all the scary books that came out that year. Butis book was very very good. It dealt with the subject of demonic possession in a very matter of fact first person narrative that I found to be very effective. If it was all an elaborate metaphor, it clearly went right over my head, but as a straight-up possess [...]

    16. This novel scared the bejeebers out of me. If you're looking to curl up on a cold winter night with a terrifying novel of demonic possession, this is the book for you. While it's probably not a good idea to admit that a novel about a woman possessed by demons hits close to home, I bet that any woman who reads this will find herself quietly comparing her own worst moments to well, just read it.

    17. I find the concept of demonic possession completely fascinating and the portrayal in this novel certainly does not disappoint Brilliantly blurs the lines between the possibility of possession and the idea of really serious mental health issues!I thought the narrative structure was superb and led to an extremely satisfying and haunting conclusion. Recommended to fellow fans of The Exorcist as an engaging and thoroughly contemporary interpretation of demonic possession.

    18. Oooookay, der Inhalt war etwas überraschend, denn von Sara Gran hätte ich jetzt nicht unbedingt so eine Gruselhorrorbesessenheitsgeschichte erwartet. Ändert aber nichts daran, dass mich die Story von Anfang an absolut gepackt, mitgerissen, durchgeschüttelt und dann verstört zurückgelassen hat. Ganz klare Leseempfehlung.

    19. Wow. Re-read this book, sat down last night, just meaning to take a peek, and then two hours later, DONE. Such an amazing book, not at all what you'd think a book about demon possession would be like. Terrifying, subtle, and stylish. Fantastic.

    20. Come Closer was a quick, creepy, and fun read. It was a fast-paced possession novel, and I was really happy with it after being disappointed by my last two reads. It's not anything gory, but it's definitely an eerie little book. It's probably not going to surprise you - it's not full of twists and turns or anything wild - but it's one that will stick with you. I wish it would have been longer, and I'll definitely read another novel by Gran.

    21. This book hit so close to home, it scared the sanity out of me. Everything about Amanda reflected major aspects of my life onto the page, pulling me in like an invisible lead on a collar. I couldn’t help but fall in love with her. Some people might call her plain, or boring. I, however, found her “normal” nature and “normal” issues to be an intriguing characteristic in this type of novel. Too often characters in this genre are so over the top that they become completely unbelievable, u [...]

    22. Very original take on possession-creepy and more horrifying than some other thrillers because of the way the story unfolds. I highly recommend this book for a Halloween read, perfect for this time of the year. However, the author should have a warning posted on the book -something like--"read at your own personal distress". I suggest you read this with the light on and a rosary or crucifix in your hand.

    23. This wasn't the best book I read in November. It's probably the third best (it was a good month for books). Nevertheless, I read it in a day and really enjoyed it; if demon-possession narratives are your bag, I'd recommend this one; I think it adds something new, and the writing style is compelling.It had flaws, obviously. The demon likes to go shopping? And mouth off at rude or boring people. And have casual sex with burly tattooed men (I feel as though my younger self should've gotten checked [...]

    24. Classified as part thriller and part horror, Come Closer is an enjoyable read for lovers of those particular genres. At 168 pages, it isn't going to take long to read, but the action starts on page one and does not let up until the last sentence. It is an intense psychological thrill ride that has one questioning what it means to be happy or insane, self-possessed or demon-possessed.Amanda is discontent with her life, which is a huge reason (in my opinion) why certain events unfold as they do. S [...]

    25. To put it plainly, this book scared the crap out of me.Gran's literary economy reminds me of Shirley Jackson. Anything in the story could have been padded out for size but the fact that only choice things are adds to their resonance and the whole thing's credibility. The structure is perfect. The suspense is impeccable. It's creepy while you read it and haunting when you're done because the more you roll it around in your mind -- i.e. the closer you come -- the more freaked out you get!!!! Perfe [...]

    26. This is not too bad, but I object to the notion that she finds out she's possessed because she takes a quiz she finds in a book. "If you've scored 7 or more, you are probably possessed by a demon!" Lame.

    27. Darüber Gedanken gemachtAmanda ist von einer Dämonin besessen, dies merkt man schon nach den ersten paar Seiten und danach wiederholen sich dich Sätze in einer Endlosschleife, doch noch einmal von vorne.Amanda ist erfolgreiche Architektin und lebt mit ihrem wunderbaren Mann Ed in einem grossen geräumigen Loft. Die beiden führen eine glückliche Ehe und lieben sich aus vollem Herzen. Doch eines Tages fängt es in ihrem Loft an zu klopfen. Dieses Klopfen hört nicht auf und damit beginnen auc [...]

    28. Come Closer was an easy to read demon possession book. I'm giving it three stars because it wasn't scary. The protagonist let the whole thing happen without "really" trying to fix things and because the blurb on the cover said "Probably this year's scariest novel." - Time Out. This is an over statement. I would consider this story to be pretty wimpy on the scariest scale and pretty low on demon possession scary scale.This book is under 200 pages so you really do fly through it. Amanda is a typic [...]

    29. I read Come Closer because I wanted to review a horror novel for Halloween. This book was in my TBR pile, so I thought I’d give it a shot. This quote from the description held great promise:“The mystery behind what's happening to Amanda in Come Closer is so frightening that it "ought to carry a warning toaders.””Sadly, it did not deliver. Novels about demon possession can be very creepy, especially in a quiet not-so-obvious way that can sneak up on you. I did have one such experience whi [...]
