Thanks so much Marcenda, for this book! I haven't read many Anne Rice novels yet but the ones I've read I've enjoyed a lot... so I'm very curious about this one. :-) Thanks for the lovely card as well!

This was the first book in 'The Vampire Chronicles' I've read. Apparently it didn't matter that I hadn't read the previous books. :-) It was a pretty good read, eventhough I found it a bit hard to get into the story.

Thanks for sharing Marcenda!

This book will be traveling further to Liinuskainen in Finland, as a Holiday Gift Giving RABCK. :-)

Journal Entry 10 by Moriquen from Broechem, Antwerpen / Anvers Belgium on Saturday, June 20, 2009

6 out of 10

I don't really know what to make of this book. I like it because of its potential, but I dislike it for not reaching that full potential. I haven't read any of the other books in the Vampire Chronicles, but I think I might be tempted to read the first two or three books. I think (and an internet search has told me my suspiciouns where more of less correct) that the later books lack the liveliness and passion of the first ones.
I did have trouble getting into the story. I often questioned what the point was to the entire book. You don't get to the Taltos until much later in the book and they are supposed to be what this book is more of less about. (I disliked the entire idea of the Taltos by the way. These Walking Babies were too far fetched and lacked anything poetic. Even the term 'Walking Babies' sounds so flat and unimaginative.)
The language in the book confuses me from time to time. The musings and fragments of conversations and dreams add very little to the story. A good description brings much more to a story then parts of sentences and feelings could ever do. When Rice describes Lestat in his full glory she can really pull me into the story, but she looses me time and time again with those fragments of sentences ...
In conclusion: I think most of the Vampire Chronicle Books will be lost on me, except maybe the earlier ones. (However I rarely read a book of which I've already seen the movie. ie: Interview with a Vampire)
