Okay..., 15 Sept. 2007
This book was much more of a struggle to get through than all of the others put together. I struggled at the start the most - the long and complicated conversation between Lestat and Stirling was utterly forced and totally unrealistic. When it got to Quinn telling his life story there were ups and downs in the writing - "be my chocolate candy, I'm real unsure of my masculinity" being a real low. The two things I hated most about this book were firstly the seemingly limitless amount of money almost every character possessed - why does it matter? and the utter trash that consisted Mona and Quinn's romance. I went through the entire subplot thinking 'teen romance' and at no point was that belief even weakly tested. Other than that - the Goblin plot was sublime in all respects, I loved the intricate and well-developed family and friends, and Sugar Devil Island's mysteries were beautiful and exciting to read and wonder about.
