I don't know how many times I have read this book. 3 times? 4 times?
The first time was back when I was in 3rd year high school. The first time I read the book, it became an instant favorite. I just love how that book takes you to places. To New Orleans, to Paris. It was grotesque, romantic and very much erotic. I wonder why back when I first read it that it didn't come off to me as erotic. Just sappy romance (and loverly bromance). Maybe because I was much too innocent and not too corrupted back then. Hah! This time around, I almost can't contain my happiness for the bromance! (sorry guys. Can't contain my inner fujoshi)
Every time I read it, different emotions just surface in me. I can't give any other word for it than exciting (or maybe it's just because of my poor grip on the English language and my sucky vocabulary that I can't think of anything else XD). I have always found vampires and stuff to be interesting but I learned to love them after I have discovered this. Anne Rice is just too awesome. Although I do want to read her other vampire books, they're pretty hard to find. And if I do find them....can't afford. Hahaha. (sponsor me, someone). However, I've been pretty disappointed with the Vampire stuff that are popular lately. I had high high high hopes for Twilight before but it was crushed to bits when I saw the first movie. After that, I shunned the whole franchise. Definitely, Anne Rice's vampires are the best.
I don't know why. It has been pretty long since I got so excited over reading a book. Even my sister was asking why I was flailing my arms and legs when I was just reading a book that I have read a countless time already.
It was a feeling of excitement that I have always longed for when reading books. And that surge of contentment that fills you after you have read the last word of the adventure. Bliss.
Now I'm sad because I finished it too fast. Now I have nothing to read while here in SG. I have to scavenge for new good books soon!
This is definitely one of my faves. Totally recommended!
