I prefer Ramses the Damned though. More catchy.
This is probably my fifth or sixth time reading this book, but the first in many years. I first read this when I was in high school, probably around the time the movie version of Interview with the Vampire came out. I loved it back then. It was suffenciently scary for my naive self, without being too over the top that I had nightmares. It was a great summer read.
Now, I while I am enjoying the book, I constantly find myself giggling at many of the…shall we say, “wording” of some of her scenes. By that I mean the “sex scenes.”
This is the best one. It is a scene between Cleopatra and an elderly Lord, Elliot Savarell.
“Ah, take me Lord Rutherford!” came her hissing whisper. “Plunge your dagger into my soul!”
Isn’t that fantastic? It’s so trashy novel! There are many, many more lines like this, but this is my personal favorite. I don’t remember this book being campy, but it sure seems to be this time through. I love it! God willing I should finish it tonight. Then I’ll move on to Little Women for the Coffee Rings group and possibly Dracula for my next RIP read.
BTW, House was fantastic last night. Very very pleased. And I totally guessed what the POTW’s “illness” was. Loved it!
