I read The Vampire Chronicles and a bunch of other Anne Rice books a couple of years ago and to be Girl Reporter honest I overdosed It took me around 6 7 years to start another one ofer booksI can never be sure weather I like Hunted her style or not Her ideas are almost always very good buter writing is lacking It is a bit over the top and wayyy too melodramatic for me But nevertheless there are a few books of Gingerbread Heart hers that I really like most of all ueen of the Damned which was so so inspired To this day I remember Maharet Akasha RockLestat and the rest of the bunch like Iave read it yesterday Pandora was never one of the characters that I cared much about she as always been background noise for me I think the reason behind this might be the fact that before ever starting the books I watched the ofD movie where she was a weird old lady not very like er actual description in the booksBut ultimately I liked much of the story in Pandora I Biz Talk-2 have always been a dieard fan of Ancient Greece Egypt and the Roman Empire so it was uite interesting for me in comparison to Lestat s origin story which was set much much later at a less interesting period What was it Classicism I could be wrong Despite liking the story there was one thing I found extremely annoying and that was the fact that if you Ricky Ricottas Mighty Robot vs the Stupid Stinkbugs from Saturn (Ricky Ricotta, haven t read the Vampire Chronicles you would be completely in the dark about this Now as I pointed out I read them a while back and by now Iave forgotten much of the details from books like Memnoch the Devil although I remember liking that one in particular I A Historical Atlas of Tibet have no recollectionowever of Armand s story beyond The Last Awakening (Curse of the Phoenix, his role in the first three books from the Chronicles Which means that Pandora felt like another companion book not like the beginning of another series It just explains another side of the same story which is part of the Vampire Chronicles Not to mention the fact that Pandora is first introduced by Lestat as an ex courtesan who caught Marius eye In the Pandora book though she explains that Marius was what trying to keeper virtue by explaining that bitch used to be a Italian Warships Of World War II hooker I m not buying it Iave this nagging suspicion that Rice was simply not planning on writing a book about Pandora so she just came up with a random story And then a couple of years later she was like There is still money in our Pandora So she wrote an entire book with a completely different backstory under the excuse that Marius for reasons unknown made the courtesan thing up Stop milking it Rice Come up with some new characters why don t youAlso the melodrama was at top notch I mean Rice s over the top love and sex conversations can be a little overwhelming right I am once again at crossroads Maybe I should rate it with three stars Realistically I think it is 25 stars but somehow I don t feel right overrating it Pandora wanted to set the record straight about Lestat s version of what Marius said about er She does so but not much was revealed to us about er thousand year life than the beginning and Critical Social Theory and the End of Work her transformation into a vampire She wandered Europe for centuries but chooses to spend 400 pages on the first 35 years ofer life It was still interesting to read about but I was The Traps hoping for than a rehash of things we pretty much already knew I actually don t read vampire book Well I guess that s the risk or good thing of working in a bookshop I ve got curious about this book because of our loyal customer is so totally into this vampire things When we got Pandora on our list we called.
