I knew this book is kinda ‘old’ but I’ve heard so much about it, I even read an Indonesian parody version of it, but I haven ever read the original version until now.
I have a mixed opinion about it. There are parts in the book that bored the heck out of me, and there are parts of the book that kept me wanting.
I found the parts that bored me were written in a too flowery a way. I lost track of what I was reading, and I skipped and skipped, and somehow I still understand. Perhaps not as much as the author would like me to understand, but I finish the book just fine.
Anne Rice have written a lot of books, and I can only assume there are fans reading her book, otherwise the publisher would probably drop her. But after reading this book I feel reluctant to read any of her other books, and even if I do, it probably not for a while.
