Review for Armand the Vampire by Anne Rice (As if you didn't know)

Well, it was dramatic, and it held my attention, but for some reason I steer clear of Anne Rice books, because when people see you reading them, they start talking to you like they know you and they assume they know what you're all about. (you know, one of those freaks who want to be a damned vampire themselves--you know the ones, those who watch Queen of the Damned over and over like it's Passion of the Christ for a holy roller or something.)

Apart from being embarassed at having picked it up, if you've read the other books (which I have), then it's pretty okay. You have to take a break every once in awhile, though, because of her continual drama that seems to choke the life out of you and make you want to climb up on the eiffel tower and plummet to your doom.

No, once you actually get back to the story about Lestat and his silence on the church floor, and not hearing about 'The bridge of Sighs' or Le Innocents, it's a fairly good novel, you're just waiting mostly for some action, something actually happening, so to speak, instead of the continual 'Well Lestat already told you this, and he already told you that..' Because you begin to wonder why the book was written at all.

I'm interested to see if Marius and Pandora end up together, again, since he no longer has to keep 'Those who must be kept', because wasn't that her big reason for leaving him back in the day? She couldn't stand to listen to their heartbeats all the time?

Anyway, here you go.

Hmmm. Ever since I first realised Interview was a book I've been interested in checking the series out... but maybe not? :D

lol, you didn't know it was a book :P jk

Well, interview is a little bit intense, but if you like that kinda thing, you'll reall enjoy it! The second one, Lestat is intense too, but I loved it.

I've heard it's a bit of the "trash" novel... something along the lines of Flowers in the Attic?

i don't know much about flowers in the attic, but her books ARE things that I'm embarrassed to let people know I'm reading for the most part, I'd never read them in public... I suppose it's a little trashy, but some of the stuff she comes up with is a little bit genious... plus i figured why not considering everyone i know has read them, they can't pick on me too much..

Flowers is full of melodrama.. but I actually like it. Well, I loved it when I was eleven and read it for the first time...

Anyway, I'm rambling.
