Just finished reading it again, I read it at least once a year, and despite knowing both the book and film like the back of my hand, it still grips me and only ever takes me a couple of sittings to finish.

Incidently, I found out the other day that Blatty added some extra stuff to the latest version, so it might be time to retire my 25 year old copy (bought for 95p in 1991) and get the new one
