I read this a month or so ago and loved it. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else thinks :)

I think I have officially lost the plot - I just thought 'I shall sit out in the garden with a cuppa for an hour and start this', turned kindle on, it's not there. I thought maybe my amazon order hadn't come through so logged on to amazon who don't even have it as a kindle book option! So where I got the idea I had already bought and downloaded it I have no idea?!
Will now have to wait for the paperback to arrive from amazon :s
ETA - Good old Amazon, it will be here tomorrow :D
Edited again - it's here :D

I'm going to see Anna Karenina next week at the cinema and it's raised the age old question of which should come first the book or the film? I want to read Fevre Dream and AK is a stonker of a tome.

I just bought Anna Karenina from Amazon. I think I might try and see the film first...get in the mood for it :)

I started it and found it really difficult to get in to (and it's over 1000 pages so the percentage was creeping along) so I started Fevre Dream. I read the ESL version years ago to teach and adult private student and I liked that so I'm quite disappointed.

Oh and when I pick Fevre Dream up I find it difficult to put down - reminds me a bit of Anne Rice but not as atmospheric (if memory serves correctly lol)

I found it incredibly atmospheric, and a bit more believable than Anne Rice. I wrote quite extensively about Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat at university, but neither of them gripped me quite the way Fevre Dream did. I was struck by how stuck on consumerism they were, and I came over all Marxist on them lol :)
