What did you like best about Of Love and Evil? What did you like least?
I loved the period Toby was sent to. The references to Michaelangelo, and Rafael was great. Unfortunately, the reason why he was sent was so uninspiring it was boring. Toby was a great assassin, and very little of his skills were used in this mission.
What was most disappointing about Anne Rice’s story?
I wanted to see more of Toby's skill as an assassin in this story. All he did was reconize a flower, and accuse the brother of murder.
Which scene was your favorite?
When Toby was first sent to Italy. Anne Rice really knows how to put you in the environment.
Could you see Of Love and Evil being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
