I don't know what I expected from this story. Whatever it was, it wasn't the story I got.
Beautiful.
Pietro and 204 other people liked Dwight Okita's review of The Age of Miracles:
The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker
"I loved this book. I read it in one 24 hour period. Great example of soft sci-fi/fabulist fiction. It's like a cross between Alice Sebold's book The Lovely Bones and Lars Van Trier's film Melancholia. In some ways, I also thought about Diary of An..." Read more of this review »

I seem to be in a minority of fans in that I really enjoyed 'Memnoch the Devil'. However, there was much complaint and controversy in reaction to it, the primary complaint being that Lestat "wasn't Lestat enough".
Well, here Lestat kicks back at his

Re-reading this for the first time in years. Having discovered them almost by accident, I began reading the Vampire Chronicles out of synch; TQotD was the first I picked up. It was amazing then, and I still love it now. Though the series and its worl ...more
