But Blood Canticle is like Anne Rice woke up one day, smelled the roses, opened the balcony doors to be greeted by the shouts of her adoring fans, and then proceeded to perch on the railing and shit on all of them. I'm talking diarreah, buddy.
Lestat is a pussy. No seriously, if you have one of those Edward vs. Lestat arguments, hide this and never use it in your arsenal. I've warned you.
Now, I know that Ms. Rice was going through a hard time. Her husband died, she found out she had diabetes, etc etc.
If Ms. Rice had said to her fans (via her website or otherwise) 'You kn...more

Okay, here's what's neat: The previous book being narrated by Quinn and his view of Lestat, and this one, narrated by Lestat and his view of Quinn. Having two, back to back, books that have two distinct narrative voices and having them give their perspective of the other.

Redeemed from what? Surviving on human blood? They are predators for crissakes, a different species. Can humans be redeemed for eating red meat? It's the blood of another species, after all. Get over it already. One book, was good. 2 or 3, and I still didn't ask why vamp...more
Como siempre, me fascina leer a Lestat, es hipnotizante, y es genial. Me gustan sus comentarios filosóficos y bien planeados, él me encanta en realidad. No sé, amo su forma de enamorarse de los demás. Y Quinn también es encantador. Y como la maldición Ma...more
