  • I'll start by saying that I loved the movie. I'm a big fan of both Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska. Not to mention I'm a huge fan of horror movies, so mix the three together, and I am most pleased.This was my first movie novelization and I liked it a lot. There are many nuances that are missed with a movie. The book brings more depth to the characters, their feelings and their growth.Also, we get to see inside the past of Thomas and Lucille Sharpe. We find out what their parents had been like. [...]


  • I am sooooooo disappointed by the missed opportunity involved in the publisher not listing the author as "Edith Cushing."


  • This lushly written book serves as a wonderful companion to the visually sumptous film of the same name.I highly recommend both book and movies as counterpoints to each other; each illuminates and expands upon the other. The book serves to inform us a bit more about the characters relations and motivations that are hinted at in the film, but at the same time even the gorgeous prose of the novel can't quite capture the visceral feel you get when you see the red clay of Crimson Peak for the first [...]



  • MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListLove.Death.Ghosts.The world was drenched in blood. A scarlet fog veiled the killing ground, then dripped down through the greedy, starved mineshafts into the tortured vats of claret clay that bubbled and gasped on the filthy, bone-white tile. Crimson earth seeped back up through the walls of mud. Allerdale Hall was ringed with brilliant red---a stain that clawed toward Edith's bare feet. But that was the least of her troubles. Hell's own child was coming for [...]


  • 5 starsVery good book. Watched the movie with a friend and loved it. Would recommend people to see the movie and read the movie novelization. Also, happy birthday Tom Hiddleston!!!


  • I've never read the novelisation of a film before, but this was surprisingly good. I loved the film and wanted to know more about the characters, which the novel provided. Besides some expansion of the inner dialogue of the characters it was very close to the film, and I would have liked it to have been developed further. The narration of the audiobook was very good though and the prose read like a modern take on a Victorian novel, which was precisely what this was. If you liked the film I'd rec [...]



  • 4 stars!I don't really read novelized versions of movies but I had to read this one because of how obsessed I was with the film. This book really complemented the film in many ways. I loved being in Thomas' head as well as Alan's. I thought when I first started this book it would just be in Edith's but nope! We even got a ghost's POV.I really, really loved this story. Many of you know I love tortured souls in my characters but Thomas and his sister Lucille were twisted beyond repair. I felt so m [...]


  • Absolutely beautiful, dark novel. I really, really enjoyed this novelisation of Crimson Peak A LOT. I've seen the movie twice and reading the book was such a pleasure because I could see Guillermo del Toro's masterpiece play out in my head while reading Nancy Holder's beautiful words. Definitely recommend reading before/after seeing the movie. Enjoy both, they're wonderful.


  • Éste libro es una novelización de la película de Guillermo del Toro, y fue escrita por Nancy Holder. Yo soy muy muy fan de Tom Hiddleston (a pesar de nuestra pequeña disputa por una tal Taylor Swift) así que no pude perderme la película, y fue realmente una excelente película. Salí del cine aún más enamorada del talento de Tom Hiddleston, pero además conmovida en muchos aspectos por la trama. Fue una película que aunque se considera de terror, los fantasmas son los que menos asustan. [...]


  • Actual Rating: 5 StarsSoundtrack: Allerdale Hall by Fernando Velázquez“The mad head of the house was rotting, and night was dragging her wings across the moon, tracing filigree on the floors. In the attic, more black moths were dancing because it was cold, because it was dark. Because they were hungry. For the butterfly.”A gothic ghost story imagined by brilliant director Guillermo del Toro, Crimson Peak: The Official Movie Novelization is a deeper glimpse into the lives of the film's twist [...]


  • I pre-ordered a green hardback, numbered, limited edition of this book from forbidden planet, which you can order on their website for £50. It is worth the money I paid for it because it is unique and signed by Guillermo Del Toro! 1 order is allowed per customer so go and get yours. The release date for this has been changed yet again now it's the 30th of october. I'm fed up with waiting I just want my bookI can't wait to read this beautiful edition of the novelization of Crimson Peak and the a [...]


  • I have a collector's edition as well and it's pretty and I love Del Toro, but god the writing is so cringeworthy. I felt like I was reading work from a fanfiction writer. I like the story enough, but it's hard to get past how annoying the writing is. Note to self: Do not read anything adapted by Nancy Holder. This book could have been so much more if a different scribe had a stab at it (pun, yes). Sadly, I think this story stuck in a perpetual state of potential, like the movie.


  • I must buy a copy of this chilling gothic story. It has been ages since a good gothic story was released. I enjoyed the movie in many parts but one, the whole incest thing: YUK! Throughout the movie I was inwardly screaming: "Run, Edith, run!" I couldn't understand where her feminine intuition has gone?! The brother and sister were creepy from day one, but I think she should have gone so the movie would get thrilling! Still, if it were me I would have run screaming! But for some reason, I couldn [...]


  • I bought this book because I liked the movie.After I finished the book, it turns out the movie version is much, much better than the book. The element of suspense spooked me and the gore was difficult to watch at point I groaned, closed my eyes, and squeezed my husband's hand hard. Despite my squeamishness, I liked it - horror, violence, and gore altogether. The book though, I felt nothing and that is just sad. Hmmm.Read on your own peril.


  • I enjoyed reading this book, which got me to finally watch the movie it is adapted from.While I found the story to be fairly predictable, it didn't matter too much because I was enjoying it. I didn't intend to but I can't help compare this to the movie. I initially wanted to watch the movie because but I don't often watch horror/creepy/spooky movies. I figured since I needed to read a horror book for Read Harder 2016 I would read the relatively short book, and then decide if the movie was probab [...]


  • Movie novelizations are often more miss than hit with me, but every once in awhile, you come across one that enhances the movie it is based on.This is one of those times. I absolutely loved this book.The writing had a very lovely, Gothic feel to it, and the use of multiple POV's also pleased me. The movie is so visually stunning, and justh, so beautiful, and the novelization only adds to it by expanding on things that were hinted at or implied in the movie. It makes for a very rich story indeed. [...]


  • Books that are based on movies often read like rather sloppily written commissional work, at least in my experience. Not this one, though. Nancy Holder’s beautiful writing might well make you think it was the novel that the movie was based on, rather than the other way round. It captures the fantastic and picturesque work by mastermind Guillermo del Toro and puts it to paper. What’s more, Holder elaborates on a lot of the story’s themes and notions that couldn’t be explored as thoroughly [...]


  • I've seen the movie 3x now and I cry every time; this book makes me cry more often and more deeply. Being a huge fan of horror and gothic romance, I can't help but find myself swept up in this story. I think it's beautiful. Love can redeem us. Love can tear us away from our dark past and we can find peace and redemption. I would love to see a Director's Cut of the movie that includes the extras from the book. It's hauntingly beautiful And horrifyingly romantic. If you loved the movie, this is a [...]


  • Hmmm I loved the movie but I don't understand why Guillermo wouldn't write this himself so he wrote the script for the movie. But I will not judge until I have read it. Fingers crossed its just as good as the movie.


  • 3.5 Novela negra y gótica, bastante entretenida, me gustó la forma de escribir de Nancy Holder.Debo confesar que lo que me hizo querer leer la novela fue Tom hiddleston y la película ^.^


  • "Ghosts are real. That much I know.They fade away, along with the past, like mist in the daylightLeaving only small lessons behind. Small certainties."To begin with, I've never watched the movie yet so I completely don't know what to expect. When I started reading this book, omg I can't seemed to put it down. I personally love settings that is taken in Victorian era. The details are great and I believe you get to know the characters in depth reading this book as comparison to the movie. This sto [...]



  • Lo disfruté mucho, fue interesante leer los detalles que en la película no son tan evidentes o no existen de forma explícita.



  • Primero debo decir que no vi la película, tenía muchas ganas de verla, pero al final no lo hice.Segundo, nuevamente sobre la película, había escuchado/leído reseñas buenas, donde decían que visualmente era muy bella, pero que le faltaba algo. Algo en el guión o en la historia.Supongo que el libro es ese algo. Muero de ganas por ver la película, porque creo que ambos se complementan de una forma notable.El libro es bastante visual, es fácil imaginar todo, y si vieron el trailer, se hace [...]


  • I didn't see the movie, so I won't make a comparison of the two. After reading it, I'm glad that I experienced it this way as I don't think I would have enjoyed the other medium nearly as much. Crimson Peak turned out to be a lot more intriguing than I believed it to be as I picked it up. I won't lie, Tom Hiddleston being on the cover had quite the influence on my interest. But when I began to actually read this, I discovered that I was compelled to keep going and going. That was because the wri [...]


  • Omg that ending was SUPER intense. I definitely enjoyed the latter half of the book more than the first. I will admit that I have not watched the movie as I am quite a wimp when it comes to horror films but I adore horror novels. This review is based solely on my impressions of the book and also my opinions on how I believe it would compare to the film. As a book, while I enjoyed the plot supremely, I felt the writing and pacing was a bit off. This is a novelization and the first non-junior nove [...]


  • I loved this movie, so when I saw that there was a novelization, I had to get my hands on it. Taking a story from one media to another always creates a new experience, but most often we're biased to whichever format we saw first. The movie is hands down the "winner." I could watch it a million times for the stunning visuals alone. The book was also good, but interpreted somethings differently than I had when seeing the movie. The author set up the atmosphere of the story perfectly in the prologu [...]
