Nadie mejor que esta autora para hacerte pensar que el incesto es lo menos sorprendente en un libro .

Anne Rice es aburrida , Poppy Z. Brite es aire fresco . Un toque de Rocky Horror Show y dialogos al estilo Greg Araki . Muyyy entretenido todo . ( )

This book was a best seller when it came out in 1993. It had a shock value with large doses of vampires, homosexuality and incest. But after twenty years it reads like a mediocre novel with no substance.

A 2/5 star read. ( )

Is it horror or romance? But wait, it's both!

It isn't just sex in this book, but an exploration of how people fall in love, how they stay in love, how they deal with each others' flaws. Being a horror novel (mostly), though, it often wanders into the darker parts of love, abuse, and co-dependency, and mostly takes on the attitude "it's better to die than be alone." Ahhhh...no. Sometimes it's better to be alone.

I liked it, although not as much as Drawing Blood. ( )

I read this book years ago (like '92) and it still resonates with me today. When I read it I found it such an eye opening book. Nothing. I had dreams about green eyes for years. Part of me would like to revisit the characters, but I don't want to ruin the emotional ties this book has for me. I'm sure that my older view point would see the flaws and cut the ties. ( )
