The Vampire Armand (The Vampire Chronicles #6)
Now, I don't know what went wrong but I didn't get the same feeling from this Armand's autobiography. Though I liked the desc...more
Al principio me sorprendió que el contenido erótico es mucho más acusado que en los libros precedentes de las Crónicas Vampíricas, si bien esto no lo suelo ver necesariamente como defecto, en este caso ha hecho un uso tan profuso de ello que la historia en sí misma llega a verse relegada a u...more
Maybe I should start this telling that this was 4th or 5th time reading this and yep, I still love it! Armand’s al...more

In the latest installment of The Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice summons up dazzling worlds to bring us the story of Armand - eternally young, with the face of a Botticelli angel. Armand, who first appeared in all his dark glory more than twenty years ago in the now-classic Interview with the Vampire, the first of The Vampire Chronicles...more

Let me side track a bit by saying that albeit this book is a bit stronger on homoeroticism compared to its predecessors, I think we have to be considerate of the context upon which the st...more

I have to say I was very impressed though, I've read this twice and I don't remember ever re-reading a novel. There isn't much of a story, but there wouldn't be really, its a biography of a...more
Armand is the Botticelli angel, as many call him, and he delights in it, I think, purely so Rice can start the book by having him rip a victims scalp off and stomp on it to spite David Talbot,...more
Después de leer Memnoch el diablo (igualmente sublime), el único trago amargo que me quedó fue lo que sucedía con Armand, al final del libro. No planeo spoilear a quien no ha leído la saga (eso es algo que está muy mal ¬¬), así que sólo diré que saber, finalmente, lo que suc...more
Also I have noted some controversy amongst other reviewers about the elements of Homosexuality in this book. I, as a Heterosexual, was not offended by these passages, and thought they were portrayed rather artisticaly, and not in a pornographic...more
Let it be know that Anne Rice, say what you will about her, writes SEXY. Like, hot damn. There was that somewhat...more
first of all weve got the historical context. Marius is from ancient Rome. Romans adopted a lot of their sexual practice from the ancient Greeks. in ancient Greece a very important part of a child's transition from boy to man was having an older (dominant) male men...more
Yes, the writing was great, and yes, the essence was great.
But something just wasn't completely fitting here for me.
The story itself seemed uncertain, and some of the stuff that happened didn't seem totally necessary, and sometimes happened suddenly.
Marius's character was passionately romantic, and I quite enjoyed the bond bet...more
La única razón por la que le doy dos estrellas en lugar de una es porque Anne Rice sabe muchísimo de historia, arte...more
But with this one... I was actually pretty close to completely abandon it and not finish it although I plan to read the whole series. After all, Anne Rice does a very good job at summarizing key points, assuming that the reader has not read the previous books... so it was not gonna be a big deal if...more
I was weary at first because Armand had never held much of my interest before this, but this autobiography has added much meat and context to the character of Armand and, truly, to the Chronicles as a whole, as well.
With that, I say, "Welcome back...more

We are too much men and women; we are yet formed in the image of the Creater, and what can we say of Him with any certainty except that He, whoever He may be--Christ, Yahweh, Allah--He made us, did He not, because even He in His Infinite Perfection could not bear to be alone.”
