Unlike most of you that read this book, I never did see the movie, so when I picked this up I knew virtually nothing about the story. Although it does have its suspenseful moments, I would not classify this as a "horror" story. Not a slasher tale, but a VERY emotionally moving tale about the preciousness of life. I found it extremely well written with some rather unexpected plot twists.
As you probably already know, the story is of a young boy named Cole, who claims, "I see dead people", and his therapist, Malcom who believes at first that he is only treating an emotionally disturbed young boy. As a side part of the story Malcom has a wife he deeply loves and is trying to rescue their marriage that he feels has grown cold due to the fact that he has been consumed with his work and not been there for his wife as he was in the early part of their marriage. Any more details and I would spoil the book, so enough said.
This book was published by Scholastic, which would lead one to believe it is a children's book. I am 40 years old and enjoyed it immensely. It kept me up until 2am to finishing it off and now here I sit with bloodshot tired eyes typing this review the morning after.
All ages will enjoy this one.
Thanks for reading,
TRW

Novelizations are tricky. Most are cold marketing ploys worth less than the paper they're printed on. But a rare few are labors of love --- created for fans of the film. Lucky for us, Peter Lerangis of Scholastic Books has made a small, quiet masterpiece that honors the film it adapts, and acts as a wonderful supplement. It's also a breezy, absorbing read. The descriptions of the characters' thoughts and feelings ring very true. Particularly Lynn Sear. She is positively heroic in her devotion to her troubled boy. And Cole's love for her is as profound as his desire to protect her from the horror of his secret. Their story is powerfully rendered here, just like the movie. In fact, the book reads much deeper because you get to "hear" Lynn's inner conflict throughout. And poor, sweet Cole? We understand him even better when we learn what a good Catholic boy he is. He can't lie to his mother. So he throws up a fortress around his worried heart.
Though Lerangis is judicial in what deleted scenes he chooses to adapt, there are some very nice compromises between the script and the finished film. He opens a chapter with an expository but emotional description of the dead men that two of Cole's toy soldiers represent to him. Shyamalan shot this scene with Cole telling Malcolm the story of these two real soldiers but it wasn't seen until the DVD's release. But the best example of Lerangis' economy comes in the hospital scene after Cole has reveals his secret to Malcolm. Shyamalan originally scripted the scene to end with an overhead shot of Cole in bed with oodles of ghosts all around him. It would've been a cool shot, to be sure. But it was forced perspective, too literal.

It is a scary and touching story about Dr. Malcolm Crowe and Cole Sear. Dr. Crowe is a distinguished child psychologist. Cole is a frightened, confused 8 years old boy, which always see dead people in everywhere. A short time later, Dr Crowe believes what Cole said and tells him to listen to those dead people as they may be needs some help.
As Cole always saw dead people that are really scared, it makes you feel afraid also.You will be consumed by the in-depth descriptions of these lost spirits and how Cole and Dr. Malcolm Crowe deal with them. You will join the way of Cole to find out why these spirits come to him and how he will get rid of them. He touched my heart that he was a small child and facing so many scared dead people and how mature he was. The ending of the story is really surprise. If you don¡¦t read the book, you really can¡¦t guess about the ending. I Love this book also I am sure this is a good book for you to read!

One of the reasons I bought this book was because of a recommendation from another book review. Another was because of the reviews of the book at Amazon. It seemed that one either loved it or hated it. I wanted to see for myself.I agree with that reader who said that this book is filled with suspence and drama. You may have to read this book several times as there are many twists and turns in the plot. There were too many cuss words for me but all in all its one of the best books I've ever read.I am looking forword to read his next novel. I don't want to spoil this book for you so you should check out other reviews on this book. I recomend that you buy this book and grade it five stars.
