    1. La calidad del libro es estupenda, este es un libro de culto que ha sido reeditado luego de haber pasado decadas en el olvido.


    2. It is really amazing that two movies were made from this book. It is abyssmally bad. The author is not really a writer but an actor, I researched, and his capability of using the English language is definitely very limited. Especially metaphors are not his thing. Want an example?"Blackberries and strawberries uncoiled under his feet like electric springs." (Loc. 497 in the Kindle Edition) Can anyone explain what that is supposed to mean? "Electric springs"? "Blackberries under his feet?" As if t [...]


    3. Readable, but oddly written, uneven in tone. I recently saw "The Wicker Man," a film very loosely based on this novel, & wanted to read the source material. I'm about halfway through & find that I just keep abandoning it for other books. Perhaps because I know the ending, but really, the writing is airy-fairy, sometimes eloquent about the scenery, but lots of telling instead of showing characterization.


    4. After waiting awhile for this to return to print, I was glad to finally snatch it up. While I wasn't expecting it to be exactly like The Wicker Man, I did hope for an engaging story and a rich selection of characters. The dialogue, however, seemed to get in the way of everything - even in the way of the storytelling - and became a huge distraction. I also found myself not much caring who did it or why.


    5. David Pinner, Ritual (Finders Keepers, 1967)I find it absolutely staggering that Ritual was out of print for as long as it was before being resurrected by Finders Keepers--a music collective, not a press--in 2011. After all, Ritual is the novel that Robin Hardy and Anthony Shaffer loosely adapted to create The Wicker Man, one of filmdom's enduring classics (despite the slight loss of luster form the abortion foisted on the world as a "reimagining" in 2006). According to Finders Keepers' preface [...]


    6. I thought it was pretentiously convoluted. This was the most tedious thing I have read since "Tybee." All books are experiential in nature and perhaps you will find this a better read than I. The best part to me was it's sudden ending.
