    This Book is Awful!

    Psycho II is a horrible book! I can totally see why the makers of the movie Psycho II rejected this book and the author's script as being unworthy. The movie is very different and much better!

    good sequel

    In the book they are trying to show what happened to Norman Bates after he was captured. He is in a state mental hospital for life. He somehow escapes and gets revenge on the couple that testified against him to get him imprisoned. He escaped from the hospital and stole a van from 2 nuns and then crashes and blows up the van with the nuns and a hitch hiker that he picked up to pretend it was him. While this was going on, in Hollywood there was a motion picture being made on the story of Norman and his killings. The movie executives are all in fear since they found out Norman escaped and he might be out to kill all of them. I liked this book since I read the first book and had to read the second one. The author did a good job of creating imagery. He also showed the real pressures of psychology and living in a psyche ward. I also liked how the author wouldn¿t let you forget about one character and how there was a consistency of what characters he was going to show you that chapter.

    Disapointing

    This sequel to Psycho starts off quite strongly with Norman Bates escaping from the Mental Hospital and leaving a horrible body count in his wake and ambiguity over whether he survived his escape or died in a mysterious fire. The Police think he is dead, but Norman¿s doctor thinks he¿s alive and on his way to Hollywood to kill the cast and crew of a movie based on his life and crimes. Sadly after the first 100 pages or so, The story changes gears completely. Norman Bated disappears from the book, and the reader must wade through 150 pages of dull story about the cast and crew of the film deciding whether to make the movie or cancel for fear of Norman coming to kill them. This segment of the book is devoid of suspense and could have really been trimmed down. Do we really need to be introduced the cliché Hollywood types in such meticulous detail? The self absorbed Director. Money hungry producer, conniving leading lady, idealistic screen writer. Sadly, the answer is no. This book warrants *** due to the great first part of the book, but the good ending doesn¿t justify the sagging middle. I hope Psycho House, the final installment in the trilogy, is better than this.
