    'Ring' was disappointing to me. Partly because it didn't seem like a horror book...something along the lines of mystery I'd say. I saw 'The Ring'...and absolutely loved that movie. 'Ring' and 'The Ring' are not the seems the movie was based on *some* of the events in the book. 'Ring' seemed to take forever to actually get interesting, and once it did, the interest was lost within a few paragraphs. It seemed to drag along, and got confusing because it jumped back and forth in some places. Plus some of the names, like Asakawa, made it harder to read because I was constantly trying to pronounce his name in a way that seemed correct to me. Also, some of the information in the book seemed irrelevent to the plot of the book. In my honest opinion, 'Ring' was not great, but I wanted to read it, because the movie was so interesting and different I had to know where the plot originated. And I want to eventually know how it progresses in the other books. Although I wasn't extremely impressed by 'Ring', I will be reading the others...since I am still curious as to where the plot will lead in the following books. I have heard the movies 'Ringu 2' and 'The Ring Two' are completely different. 'The Ring Two', seemed like it was a sequel driven more by the money a sequel could bring in, than by the horrifing pleasure the first movie was...and was more confusing than anything(but hey, it was nice to see Sissy Spacek...she just belongs in *actual* horror flicks though) ---So, I am going to read 'Spiral' to try and make more sense of the plot...even thought I wasn't thrilled with 'Ring', I am still interested in what will happen next.
