First off, I'm not an Anne Rice fan. I am reading this book because of my book club. I can't believe how repetitive she is. Her first chapter was about twenty pages stating that the main character was a hit man. I could have summed it up much quicker.

Plus the whole lute player angle, I just envision a LARPer as an assassin and laugh. I mean I just literally thought of someone dressed up as a renaissance festival nerd just did not seem plausible in my head.

Only at around page 100 did it start moving faster, it's a shame that that is almost halfway through the book.

This is not my kind of literature but once I got into it it wasn't that hard to read. Definitely took me way too long and I wasn't motivated to read it. A 265 page book can be read in a matter of hours by me, whereas I have had this book for nearly two weeks and am only just over halfway through it.

----update, i finally finished it and it wasn't AS bad as the first third of the book. very interesting plot although i am still not fond of her repetitiveness. Can't say I would read the series of this though.
