bookshelves: currently-reading
Reading for the 2nd time. Most recently started February 27, 2021.

So here's the thing. I'm a huge fan of the vampire chronicles. Vampire Lestat, Queen of the Damned, Tale of the Body Thief, Memnoch; Blood and Gold, Pandora, Vittoria; God I love them and have read each several times over.

Then Ms Rice chucked her Mayfair people at the chronicles and fucking ruined them.

I was hoping for a return to the old chronicles, y'know when reading about these characters truly was like visiting an old friend.

Prince lestat is simply a journey along with an author as she disappears firmly and irreversibly up her own arse in a storm of over-descriptive, self-aware and self-impressed navel-gazing wankery.

Utter pish. So disappointed.

49.13% "Has the feel of Queen of the Damned in that there's loads of characters and subplots tied together, headed for a finale. The main antagonist has been telegraphed a little too much but overall feels like revisiting old friends and learning things about them you never knew"
