Description


Si la medicina y la psiquiatria no ayudan, puede el exorcismo ser la respuesta?

Ha llegado el momento para el implacable rito que enfrenta a exorcista y demonio en duelo mortal.

El exorcista es una de las obras de ficcion mas sobre cogedoras y terrorificas jamas escritas. Basada en un hecho real, ocurrido en la decada de los cuarenta del siglo pasado, la protagonista es una nina de apenas once anos que sufre terribles transformaciones, sobre todo en su comportamiento.

Ni medicos ni cientificos ni psicologos son capaces de hallar la causa de tal estado y paulatinamente todo se va decantando hacia la hipotesis de que la nina esta poseida por el demonio.

Publicada en 1971, El exorcista es una de las novelas mas sobrecogedoras y terrorificas jamas escritas, y ha dado origen a una saga cinematografica y una seriade television de culto.

"Originally published in 1971, The Exorcist, one of the most controversial novels ever written, went on to become a literary phenomenon: It spent fifty-seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, seventeen consecutively at number one. Inspired by a true story of a child's demonic possession in the 1940s, William Peter Blatty created an iconic novel that focuses on Regan, the eleven-year-old daughter of a movie actress residing in Washington, D.C. A small group of overwhelmed yet determined individuals must rescue Regan from her unspeakable fate, and the drama that ensues is gripping and unfailingly terrifying.

Blatty was inspired by a true event during the 1940s to create his protagonist. The Exorcist was, and is, more than just a novel, it is a literary landmark. Purposefully raw and profane, The Exorcist still has the extraordinary ability to disturb readers and cause them to forget that it is ""just a story.""

""There are not many readers who will be unmoved. Well researched, written in a literate style, The Exorcist is to most other books of its kind as an Einstein equation is to an accountant's column of figures.""

-- The New York Times

""Suspense that never lets up. ""

-- Publishers Weekly

""Holds its readers in a vise-like grip that is worthy Poe.""

-- L.A. Times

""A stunning achievement ""

-- The London Sunday Express"
