    Good. Like the movie (the Hitchcock one, of course), it has this very fundamental feeling to it: there's going to be tons of stuff on the same subject, but only one cornerstone. Old-fashioned, detailed, slow, respectable.

    a very mild spoiler concerning the appearance of Norman Bates:
    Spoiler:
    he looked nothing like Perkins, just the contrary: was described much as that guy from Human Centipede 2 and many similar movies

    What was your approach to reading S.? I have been putting it off because I ave heard you need to read it a few times to full understand it. Once to read the book, once to read the notes, and once to read them together to get everything.
