This is just too deliciously funny to let it pass unremarked.... So apparently Anne Rice's latest novel isn't her most brilliant achievement to date. (I wouldn't know, I don't buy her books any longer. But if it's actually worse than The Vampire Armand I don't want to know...) People (self-confessed fans, too) say as much in their amazon reviews.

Rice, instead of just maybe considering that there might be a grain of truth in so many bad reviews, something her ego obviously doesn't permit her to do, posts a review herself, ranting at long lengths about her 'utter contempt' for those ungrateful, stupid people who can't appreciate the 'virtuoso performance' and 'great art' that is her writing, where 'every word is in perfect place'. I shit you not.


*shakes head*

I read, I laughed, I went to see if anyone had reported it to f_w yet...that is a priceless dummy-spit on Rice's part.

Thanks for sharing!

Glad to be of service. :)

She really asks for it, though.

I have managed to read exactly one and a half pages of a book by Anne Rice, I can't remember which... I hated it, and I never outright hate books. It was a great dissapointment too, because I love vampires, and she's written tons of books about them, and now it turns out I can't stomach her- shit!

How can people be so conceited and- unprofessional? The reviews she got on amazon weren't even that bad, just one or two guys said they didn't like this one as much as others! Sheesh, it's embarassing.

This is where I blush & admit that at one time I kind of liked the first four books of the Vampire chronicles, but after that? Gah She apparently found religion, lost her editor, and it all went to hell very fast... writing, characterisation, you name it.

If your ego doesn't allow for self-criticism, at least try to have a little dignity to make up for it...
