It was a dark and stormy night when Mary Crane glimpsed the unlit neon sign announcing the vacancy at the Bates Motel. Exhausted, lost, and at the end of her rope, she was eager for a hot shower and a bed for the night. Her room was musty, but clean, and the manager seemed nice, if a little odd. This classic horror novel, which inspired the famous film by Alfred Hitchcock, has been thrilling people for fifty years.… (mehr)

This modern classic has been on my to-read list for a long time – added after watching the riveting movie by Hitchcock. When I saw that Psycho was available as an audiobook, I got it immediately and, I am so glad I did! Narrated exquisitely by Paul Michael Garcia, the audiobook sent shivers up my spine even though I have watched the movie and knew what happens when. I listened to it in total darkness and the effect was mind-blowing. The atmospheric novel deserves all the praise it has garnered over the years, absolutely. ( )

This is not the Psycho movie. It's hard not to judge the book by the Alfred Hitchcock movie and it's hard not to cast the actors from that movie in the novel, though clearly Anthony Perkins is not the Norman Bates of the novel.

The novel takes its time building up, and while its a slow start, it's worth the time investment because Bloch carefully paints a very clear picture throughout the novel of who Norman Bates really is. As I read this, I could clearly see the novel's influence on Stephen King, especially in his novel The Dead Zone.

What I didn't know was that Bloch had written a couple of sequels to this. Now I'm going to have to see if I can find them. ( )

Just as good as the film! Really enjoyed this. I didn't realise there was a second installment so I might pick that up as well! ( )

Psicose, o clássico de Robert Bloch, foi publicado originalmente em 1959, livremente inspirado no caso do assassino de Wisconsin, Ed Gein. O protagonista Norman Bates, assim como Gein, era um assassino solitário que vivia em uma localidade rural isolada, teve uma mãe dominadora, construiu um santuário para ela em um quarto e se vestia com roupas femininas.O livro teve dois lançamentos no Brasil, em 1959 e 1964. São, portanto, quase 50 anos sem uma edição no país, sem que a maioria das novas gerações pudesse ler a obra original que Hitchcock adaptou para o cinema em 1960. A DarkSide orgulhosamente tem o prazer de reparar este lapso, em julho de 2013, com o lançamento de Psicose em versões brochura (classic edition) e capa dura, limited edition que incluirá um caderno especial com imagens do clássico de Hitchcock.Uma história curiosa envolvendo o livro é que Alfred Hitchcock adquiriu anonimamente os direitos de Psycho e depois comprou todas as cópias do livro disponíveis no mercado para que ninguém o lesse e, consequentemente, ele conseguisse manter a surpresa do final da obra.Em Psicose, Bloch antecipou e prenunciou a explosão do fenômeno serial killer do final dos anos 1980 e começo dos 1990. O livro, junto com o filme de Hitchcock, tornou-se um ícone do horror, inspirando um número sem fim de imitações inferiores, assim como a criação de Bloch, o esquizofrênico violento e travestido Bates, tornou-se um arquétipo do horror incorporado a cultura pop

I bet this was pretty exciting if you read it before the movie was made. The trouble now however is that every bit of this book is common cultural knowledge. I've never even seen the movie, but it turns out that I know the entire story. Unfortunately that means that all the truly original and intriguing bits have no bite, and the flaws really stand out.

Also worthy of consideration is its troubling representation of transpeople and individuals with mental illness. ( )
