I was so excited to get this but unfortunatly just can't stay awake to finish it. Since I listen to my books in the car this can be a real problem. I don't know if it's the story or the narrator's voice but it puts me right to sleep. Great buy if you have isomnia!
Short and sweet reviews, Allentown pa
def. by simon vance, he's great. ill stay away from this vampire series for now.
no, not for a while. at the same time i can still encourage people to the story, the way she wrote it i didn't expect.
he always sounds like he's directly from the story, he's better then b. pitt as louie
i wouldn't read it, their is a series but my expectation was different so I'm staying away.
50% of the book seemed like poetry from the vamps point of view, wasn't as dark or horror filled as i though it would be. lots of mellow drama but i can see why people are into it
I gave this book two stars because it's well written. This I can appreciate. I keep thinking that there must be something else to make it worthy of recommendation, but nothing has come to mind. I don't object to vampire, supernatural, or sci/fi themes. I enjoyed all of Stephanie Meyer's books, including The Host, as well as Deborah Harkness's A Discovery of Witches. If you are looking for suspense, depth, humor, humanity, and a glimmer of light somewhere in the darkness, take your pick of these. If you prefer page after page of grisly violence and unrelenting despair, then spend your money on Interview with a Vampire.
We had to wait till "The Girl Who...." was wrapped up in narration by Simon Vance, master reader... so perfect that now we get to hear the story we have relished, the story Anne Rice would not write again today, an now Vance unwraps the present of this gift already leaked out, no turning back and so perfect the writing and so perfect the voice to go with it! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So well these words came from the ink, so well it falls from the tongue, so well it enters our ears and imagination again. Of coarse it is worth the buy. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now, go read modern Jungian analysts on how they frame the story of all of this "Vampire" craze after Rice tipped the first big domino.... and see why it is we are so captivated by the subject of the reality of every day vampires throughout our culture and even in ourselves. So dark, let's get lost and find ourselves and illumine and see through this archetype about us.
Excellent story got into it within the first minute. narration was Awesome he really caught the emotions of Louis and Claudia. looking forward to hearing his narration in the next novel in the series!
This book is almost 40 years old but it is still great and holds up terrifically even with so much vampire stuff written in the subsequent years. Vance is also a terrific narrator.
Wow. Couldn't stop listening. Simon Vance is awesome. Just downloaded all the series. Hurricane on way here and I'm set. Oh by the way did I say how much I loved it!!
Yes because i can just listen.
I enjoyed Simon Vances voice for these books much more than the alternative readers.
THIS is what I expect from all of Anne Rices books now!
