Lilith's Dream (Hunger #3)
An ancient vampire, beautiful beyond words, a vulnerable young man drawn to her by a power beyond his understanding, two desperate parents searching across the world for the son they love -- these are the riveting, unexpected elements of Whitley Strieber's extraordinary new novel.
Lilith, the ages-old mother of the dying race of vampires, has been forced to come out of he...more
The only good thing I can say about this book is since this is a pre-Twilight vampire novel there are no sparkles!
Maybe I needed to read the others in the series first. I'm having a hard time summing up exactly what was wrong with this novel. First, This story seemed incredibly confusing. Lilith has odd flashbacks to possibly another time, or another world, or both. Leo talks about her previous life before becoming a vampire while she was basically a thrall. Paul and Becky seem to love each...more
Ahhhh, where to begin? I want to like this book. I enjoyed both of the previous books for the most part, but this one? Meh.
Normally, I don't get caught up in the inconsistencies in books. I can overlook them and just enjoy the story for what it is. But I'm finding myself increasingly annoyed by Lilith's Dream.
Little things like the fact that Lilith is supposed to have been around since when mammoths roamed the earth, she's supposed to have interacted with humans withi...more
Woot! A series completed!
#1 The Hunger & #2 The Last Vampire: I enjoyed 1 & 2 more than #3. Tho written in the '80's (?), The Hunger is a terrific vampire book! Very different, a darker look at the vampire life.
It is hard to believe that the scenes in the book were written by the same person. I completely buy the descriptions of Lilith and her perception of human world. I however hate his *humans*, if they can be called that. The worst dialog ever!
I have this book on My Kindle and after the firth third I had to skip over all of the *human* parts, they did not help with the story development, Paul and Sandy (*snicker*) are...more
Ok, so there are a few nice moments but it's hard to take the book seriously.
Major spoiler: the idea of a prehistoric vampire risen from under a pyramid (with an elongated head [probably from reading every scroll in the hall of records, whoop whoop for mentioning it] but otherwise quite dashing) trying to eat the horny local des(s)ert people whilst driving and shifting a sodde...more
I'm also surprised to see it's the third in a series and I don't think I read the first two. I've always loved the story of Lilith. It doesn't sound like this is a very good one.
Still a nice book to read if you look past the inconsistencies but it could have been so much more.
Strieber also co-authored The Coming Global Superstorm with Art Bell, which inspired t...more
