not at her best
on 13 January 2015
There is a distinctive lack of a story in this book. Nothing much happens and as a reader I felt rather bored. I found myself waiting for themes to develop into something bigger, to find that the plot was often abandoned and the reader left waiting and somewhat confused.
The characters are uninteresting with no depth to them at all. In fact their personalities seem so basic that they don't much differ from each other!
Gone are the days where Anne rice wrote with passion and one found themselves craving the mysterious dark but beautiful world of her books. At times I found myself wondering if this was actually written by Anne Rice as it seemed so different from her early work. Having read all Anne rice's books over the years, I think I may have to finally stop to avoid further disappointments. The fact that the books are rather expensive adds to this further.
