This is one of the better "film adaptation" novels I've read to date, namely because it reads like source material rather than an afterthought. Oddly enough, the novel is told mostly from Kayako's viewpoint, with vaguely related introductions in most of the chapters (historical facts, international ghost tales, etc). We're given a more personal look into the woman's upbringing, her college obsession with Kobayashi, her introduction to her future husband Takeo and the disintegration of her marriage. The depths of her obsessions are chilling, yet they pale in comparison to those of her husband. It's really rare to get a grasp of the ghost this deep in an onryou-style story. Highly enjoyable, and possibly a re-read for me at some point soon.

It starts with a dangerous obsession, and leads to the massacre of an innocent houswife and her child. The problem was... she didn't stay dead.
