I love my life but trading allows me to escape without transportation cost!
Loved it! at times slow, mostly full of action and inward thought processes. multiple layers! Next book...... here I come!
It was enjoyable, though in my humble opinion it got very philosophical and seemed to lag in some areas and get "lost'' so to speak; I still enjoyed it.
I would say this audiobook ranks #2 under the Dark Witch
When the main character was running through the woods and came upon a cabin where a woman lived and she wasn't afraid of him, and they kissed. The description of a man-wolf kissing a human was very memorable indeed!
His voice lent a sense of charm to the story and his voice was perfect in every way for each character. You could imagine and see each one in your mind.
Man or Wolf? Neither. A Man-Wolf! or Evil doers beware. The Man-Wolf is out there. He's sniffing you out, without a doubt - to devour you when you're snared!
I loved the way Anne Rice kept her character's humanity even when he was a man-wolf and how he just didn't kill anyone, giving the wolf a sort of purpose. Sniffing out evil was a very good way for her to have him find his victims without the reader having any remorse for his killing/eating them.
Finally something I could sink my teeth into that doesn't have a bunch of depressed characters. LOL five stars for this book!
Devotee of the Quill and Mask
Even though Rice says this was never meant to be a series, this book feels like a precursor to one. For a werewolf novel, the action is surprisingly lacking, and with no real villain, one is left wondering why the protagonist is conflicted at all about his fate. The set up is great, just not the pay off.
Doing the right thing is the hardest thing you will ever do" but one must try.. everyday. I thank my parents and heavenly father for the faundation of my life. I continue to build on it every day with the help of all my great friends and family. Love is a great faundation for life and Books are like a great meal that one must enjoy slowly ;)
It's just a GREAT STORY! Read by a wonderful narrator , you will not be disappointed. There is also a second book called the wolfs of mid winter !
I loved this book and I can not wait until the next book is out. Anne Rice nails a great story with tension, padsion, history, l I ve and religion- all in one book. Aweso.e indeed.
This was an absolute disappointment. Very little action. All of the characters are perfectly beautiful, highly intelligent, and live a life of luxury. Men fall in love overnight (repeatedly) and women welcome animals into their bed. The history of the morphenkinder is explained, and the book ends. Not very exciting.
Backstory about the Wolf Gift was interesting but very little of the book talked about it.
The worst. I've listened to all of the vampire chronicles. She should have used a pseudonym.
He is really annoying. His voice sounds like he is reading copy for a commercial about pharmaceuticals. Reuben - constantly annoying. Stewart - almost unbearable.
Don't. Just don't.
