I've enjoyed Nancy Holder' writing since I first discovered her through her Buffy novelizations, so I was quite excited to find out she was the author behind the Crimson Peak novelization.  Having seen the film itself prior to picking up the novelization I already knew where the story was heading; however, Holder has brought a good amount of inner monologue and scenes which weren't in the theater release, and made this story all the more wonderful.

Definitely a movie novelization I enjoyed equally as well as del Toro's visually stunning film.
