Reniassance Italy...given new life by a vampire.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Vittorio, The Vampire (New Tales of the Vampires) (Paperback)
As with all Rice's novels, once begun, it's impossible to put down. Vittorio is more a recollection of the classical wonder of Renaissance Florence than simply the tale of a vampire. Rice captures the beauty of an age through the life of the vampire with astounding detail. As with "Pandora", we are entranced and transported into the history of the character, and with beautiful prose and factual evidence, the book - as with all her novels - is simply a joy to read.
