Crap, crap, crap. Quite possibly the worst book I've ever read. Take all of Anne Rice's worst traits as a writer--her self-indulgence, how long-winded and overly detailed she can be, her narcissism--all of it comes full circle to create this piece of crap book. I think it's her fantasy come to life, which is why it's so bloody terrible. The one and only good part of this book is when she tells the story of the violinist. Rice is at her best recounting history; she does her research and truly loves the eras she writes about. I wish this book had been completely about the violinist. That might have made it a worthwhile read. Steer clear.

Andrew Cummer I havn't read it yet so I'm just counting on you

Justin Lmao I actually thought I missed something while reading this book. Like, maybe I don't get the deep, enriching meaning through this book I thought pointless trash upon finishing, and because of that I was quite nervous to see the reviews, as I was sure to be pissed by its well-received critiques. But the first line to your review aligned with my angry rebuff: CRAP CRAP CRAP.

Tomas Rivera gonzalez yeah Im totally agree with you, and the violinist history is only one chapter jajaja.

María Olvera Worst. Book. Ever. I don't even want to talk about it, and I used to like her

Maureen I agree completely--worst book ever! I think I threw it across the room!
