I enjoyed this book even though it's got a different style then many I tend to gravitate towards. There's no real one main character; it's more an ensemble cast that all play off each other in different ways to tell the complete tale. And it's set in 1986 which adds to the different "feel" of the storytelling.

There's definitely a bit of a statement made about AIDS and blood and promiscuity as a metaphor for vampirism. Sometimes it's not even a metaphor but flat-out a part of the plot. And in that respect, it can feel a little bit "Judgment" for sins sort of condemnation.

Still though, the book was enjoyable. It felt a little long in places mainly because of the large cast which required the focus shift very frequently to the different plots and actions, but it's a different take on the same-old, same-old vampire story that fills the shelves these days.
