1.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps it's time to retire?, 30 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was really looking forward to reading this, I fell in love with Anne Rice's work when I first read 'Interview with a Vampire' and, despite the occasional blip, I've always been a fan.
I don't know where to begin to review this book. It isn't easy to read, mainly because there's so little to engage with. It's littered with new characters and old favourites but they seem to be there for no real reason, other than to gush out a ridiculous amount of exposition, much of which is repetitive. There is no real character building so it's very difficult to engage with any of the the new characters, many of the other characters wouldn't have been recognisable at all if she hadn't named them! As for Lestat himself... It's as if she's forgotten her own character; the qualities that made him exciting and appealing are lost in poorly written purple prose and endless repetition. The plot doesn't deliver any surprises, the identity of the 'voice' is blindingly obvious, right from the beginning.
Frankly, I feel that this book has been published simply because the name Anne Rice guarantees sales. I can think of no other reason why such a poorly written book found its way past an editor.
There's a part of me that hopes that this was just another blip.
If you're a fan, as I am, you're probably going to buy this anyway. I sincerely hope that you enjoy it more than I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic series this is, 9 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a fantastic series this is. I have absolutely no interest in American Football and I didn't think Friday Night Lights would engage me at all, but it's superb. The characters in it are so compelling, and what happens to them completely swallows you up.

"Texas Forever"!

These are wonderful. I bought two of them on the off chance, because they were so cheap.

They're easy to set up, I have them on the fence to light up my deck and I'll certainly be buying some more for the bottom of the garden.

This is brilliant! So simple to set up that it's virtually plug and play. I have mine in the conservatory and it give me great internet access both inside and out in the garden.

If you're thinking of buying one don't hesitate, it's well worth the money!

3.0 out of 5 stars There are good things about this book and there are bad, 9 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are good things about this book and there are bad. The information for novice writers is good as is the information on getting published. However, as a writer of some years I found that this virtually stopped me from writing anything. I found myself questioning so much of what I did in an effort to pigeon-hole myself.
It's a well intentioned book with a lot of good information but very repetitive and somewhat stifling.

As face-painting novices we used these stencils at our village gala and the children loved them. All of the designs were popular with the girls. The stencils make a great template for the basic design, you can use sponges to make a nice multi-colour effect and then add to them by painting in any details with a fine brush.

As face-painting novices we used these stencils at our village gala and the children loved them. The skull and crossbones was by far the biggest hit. The stencils make a great template for the basic design and you can then add to them by painting in any details.
