OMG - Anne Rice has written a new Lestat novel…!
In case I’ve not mentioned it before, I had a love/hate relationship with her books in my teens. I devoured them eagerly, but they often lay a bit uneasily in my stomach. While she can create dense atmosphere, I think she had huge issues with character consistency/development, her female characters always struck me as the same cold, sellfish type and some of her plotlines were… *ehem*.
I must have read pretty much all of her books until I went to uni. When I moved away from Germany, I binned them. I thought she should have stopped writing vampire books a long time ago and could well understand that she herself professed to have a love/hate relationship with Lestat.
After already proclaiming the end of the Vampire Chronicles after volume five, then writing another 5+2(?) vampire books (Vampire Chronicles/New Tales of the Vampires) and once more proclaiming the end a few years ago, now this?
What do you think?
