I like Lestat and Anne Rice, so I enjoyed this tale. A little over-romanticized but that is typical. Worth a listen if you enjoy Anne Rice.
I have been waiting for Anne's new book with Lestat for EONS. Was suprised and tickeled to find the Mayfairs, the Vampires and the Toltos all in one book. A through enjoyment. Love it.
this book and narrator is absolutely horrible. could not get past chapter 4.
what a waste of a credit.
great time with the book
Barley got up to the second CD. Not interesting enough to keep my interest.
Had one not read Blackwood Farm, or have been familiar with Anne Rice's characters, this might be a bit confusing; however, I am an avid Anne Rice fan - so I really did enjoy the book. Could hardly wait to get in the car for my daily commute.
I usually don't write book reviews, but this book was absolutely horrible. I don't understand why so many people enjoyed it. I'm a huge Anne Rice fan and have read most of her books but this one just seemed like a bunch of nonsensical twisted stuff that she threw together. Even Lestat's character seemed extra arrogant, long winded, and down right unbearable. I finished this book but I only give it a one because no zero option is available. By far the worst Anne Rice book I've ever read.
I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. I HAVE MISSED A FEW BUT THIS BOOK ANSWERED SOME QUESTIONS AND CLEARED UP SOME THINGS FOR ME. NOW I WANT TO GO BACK AND FIND THE BOOKS THAT I MISSED SO I CAN GET THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS THIS BOOK HAS BROUGHT UP.
NICE TO HAVE ANNE BACK TO HER OLD STUFF. YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH OF LESTAT.
Lestat breaking the forth wall and speaking to us the readers was unnecessary and irratating to a point. However, A. Rice did a seamless job weaving the Mayfairs into the chronicles. It has been quite a long time since I read about the witches but there was just enough references to old books that my memory was merely refreshed, I wasn't lost or confused and I wasn't bored by reduncancy as is most often the case when authors want to bring readers "up to speed" in their reference to old stories.
I was glad Anne Rice was keeping up with the lives from her vampire series. Entertaining as always.
It's amazing how the character of Lestat can change with the times, as if he were real.
The new characters are just as full of life as the old. This book is very enjoyable.
