(PDF KINDLE) The ueen of the Damned Author Anne Rice

summary ß eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Anne Rice

The ueen of the Damned characters ↠ 107 F the world's vampires sparing only a small group including Lestat who she expects will join her in a crazed crusade against male mortals. I like books I like reading them writing them sleeping with every word I have ever read staring down at me in a legacy of comforting language I have only ever in my life put down two books without finishing them and throughout this whole torturous affair I had to continuously remind myself that I don t want that figure to reach three In short this was slow painful and pointless of an elongated love affair with Rice s beloved Lestat than any honest attempt to y now educate or entertain her audience I wish I hadn t started it because then I could have read something elsePlot There is effectively none The whole thing is told through a series of side stories and flashbacks with the actual conflict resolved in a handful of pages at the back end of the book about two or three hundred after I started actually verbally yelling at the thing to get to the point already Nothing at all is accomplished Rice cleans up her mythology a little bit and injects a bit vampiric superpowers into her fictional crush Lestat This than anything is what grates about the story Every character spends far too much time worrying over Lestat It is an elongated aggrandizing a chance to reiterate just how attractive devilish powerful and irresistible the irritating little godlet is Every other character spends far far too much time worrying over him and each mewling phrase sticks out of the narrative like a staple in a uiche Even the titled ueen of the Damned herself who at points showed the potential to be a well realized character with a handful of villainous virtues and flaws is inevitably defeated because Lestat is just too damned beautiful for anyone to resist It s tiresome it s awful and it makes me angry because there ARE hints here and there of surprising narrative potential if only when the author pulls her head out of her own ass long enough to write a chapter that has absolutely nothing to do with her favorite dead white masturbation fodderSkip it watch the movie if you must it s shorter

The ueen of the Damned characters ↠ 107 In this third installment of the Vampire Chronicles Lestat greedily prowls San Francisco in search of new blood His kiss awakens ueen Aka. I read a lot of Anne Rice in the 80s both her Vampire Chronicles and her Mayfair Witches series I always find her very readable and there is always some dark beauty in her prose However like most series the uality tend to drop off after three or four volumes the authors either begin to repeat themselves or try something radically different or experimental which does not work As far as The Vampire Chronicles is concerned I think Ms Rice has done a bit of both and I lost interest after the fifth volume Memnoch the DevilMost readers of The Vampire Chronicles agree that the first three books of the series are the best I would go as far as to say that these are the best vampire fiction I have ever read Bram Stoker has nothing on Anne Rice as far as literary talent is concerned Stephenie Meyer does not even deserve to be mentioned in the same breathOK enough useless preamble I reread The ueen of the Damned as part of my Halloween horror binge I have long neglected the horror genre in favor of sci fi fantasy and even mainstream fiction It never occurred to me to reread the first two Vampire Chronicles books Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat because I still remember the stories very well even decades after reading them the Tom Cruise movie adaptation is even fresh in my memory The ueen of the Damned however is only remembered in term of broad plot outline and I the denouement totally escaped me I think this is because there is so much in this book It is epic is scale and complex in structure and characterization Akasha Art by by Klodia007In the previous book The Vampire Lestat Lestat the rebellious star of the Chronicles has become a rock star with hit albums I think he made some kind of hair metal with weird lyrics His vampiric brand of metal mayhem has the unfortunate effect of waking up Akasha the original vampire with megalomaniac tendencies Soon she is dispatching young or crappy vampires left and right with her mental powers and human males in general are on her shit list Who can stop the most powerful vampire ever I won t spoil it for you but it is probably not whoever it is you are thinking ofThere are long flashback chapters where the narrative is set in ancient Egyptian time where the human ueen Akasha is turned into the first vampire almost by accident This part of the tale involves good and evil spirits cannibalism and curses it really is uite riveting The sections set in the modern world is almost as exciting Anne Rice s world building and vampire mythos is some of the most vivid fantastical creation ever I particularly like the Talamasca the secret society for investigation of the paranormal where Fox Mulder would feel right at homeAnne Rice s prose always go down well with me I particularly like her description of the elation and shame of vampire feeding When they drank the blood they felt ecstasy Never had they known such pleasure not in their beds not at the banuet table not when drunk with beer or wine That was the source of the shame It hadn t been the killing it had been the monstrous feeding It had been the pleasure Akasha by Deathstars69 Her descriptions of characters are always uite vivid Her skin was white and hard and opaue as it had always been Her cheek shone like pearl as she smiled her dark eyes moist and enlivened as the flesh puckered ever so slightly around them They positively glistered with vitality The ueen of the Damned is definitely worth rereading if you have read it ages ago like I have of course if you have not read it before it is even of an imperative though I would recommend reading the previous two books in the chronicles first This should not be much of a hardship as they are seriously gripping reads That said if you were to read it as a standalone I think it would still be uite understandableA great read from first page to last Notes Fans of Twilight may find this interesting The 2002 movie adaptation is indeed a mess but Aaliyah actually did a good job and she died soon after the movie s release poor girl Aaliyah as Akasha
