Read in January, 2009

Not as much fun as you want it to be. The Club is not a complete enough creation to surrender to. The way the book is set up The Club needs to be as evocative a presence as say, Arrakis is in Dune. Without that the sex scenes are hot but the rest of the book feels empty. You're told too much about who the characters are rather than shown by their actions. Rice never feels as in command of the environment she creates here as she is in Interview with the Vampire. The connection between the two protagonists feels completely flimsy. If I had gotten more of a naughty pleasure out of it these weaknesses might not have felt so glaring buuuutt...they were.
