Anne Rice’s Latest ‘Prince Lestat’ Gets Mixed Reviews

Anne Rice’s return to the world of vampires been selling well, but some readers are finding the mythology of the book too complicated.

I have to be honest here: I am not actually a fan of Anne Rice. I know, I know, –vampires are my life, –but no one but Anne Rice, –to me anyway, –can take a subject so exciting and make it such a snorefest. At one point, a reviewer mentioned something about pages of exposition, –yes, that’s it in a nutshell.

There are too many pages of purely rambling thoughts, dialogue is rare, and the prose is …exhausting. Has anyone read her latest? How does it compare to her other novels? I’m more of a Rocquelare, circa Sleeping Beauty trilogy fan than anything else. If you’ve read it, what do you think?
