    I read the first three books in The Vampire Chronicles a long time ago and I enjoyed them very much A friend of mine told me to skip The Tale of the Body Thief so that's why I chose to jump ahead and read this the fifth book in the series I got my copy at a thrift store for a dollar a few years back In this book the vampire Lestat is stalking a drug overlord named Roger who deals in cocaine and stolen art Apparently he's also kill

In the fifth Vampire Chronicle Lestat is searching for Dora the beautiful and charismatic mortal daughter of a drug lord Dora has moved Lestat like no other mortal ever has and he cannot get her out of his visions At the same time he is increasingly awa Memnoch the Devil takes Lestat on an extremely long tour of the past creation angels evolution the passion of Christ and because he has a job proposition for the Brat PrinceMemnoch the Devil also known as the Bible according to Anne Rice or Anne Rice s theological musings Perhaps even Memnoch lectures you endlessly while Lestat practices his melodrama What it isn t is much of a story or a plot For a story or a plot to happen well things have to happen Things do not happen Oh there s something tucked at the beginning There s something tucked at the end a teeny tiny something But that s itThe rest of lecture Info dump ONE LONG INFODUMP One horrendously long unbelievably unnecessary info dump An info dump that I cannot even imagine having even the slightest relevance to the series It really is just one long exposition on what the Bible could mean or a spin on it or on the nature of god It s a vast amount of world building that is utterly irrelevant to anything the vampires do in their daily livesIf Lestat weren t being dragged around to occasionally declare himself impressedawedhorrified it wouldn t be relevant at all The vampires are utterly superfluous to this story All of the characters are utterly superfluous to this story It may as well have been one long the logical lecture inly told in the most long winded dullest way possibleI d like to write on this since it is the vast majority of the book but there really is nothing to say It s just a big splurge of theological theory pretending to be a novel It s completely irrelevant not very interesting and probably better suited to analysis in a seminary than actually read as a novel in the ongoing vampire seriesBut looking at the bits that actually involve the vampires rather than some of the dreariest and long winded exposition I have ever had the displeasure to ready and it s not much better or sensible Perhaps because these little add ons have just been forced to try and drag this info dump into her worldLestat fell in love with his victim I can buy that s imply because within 10 seconds of meeting just about anyone Lestat falls in love with them It s what he does it allows even pointless melodrama So we get a really long and pointless backstory on this man and some books he read which seem to be part of the endless theological debate that basically comes down to sex and pleasure and love are not bad things Suffering is not valuable Seriously that s this entire damn theological diatribe that took an entire book to relate summed up in one sentence which is never gain relevant This goes on for countless pointless pages where we learn the pointless minutiae of someone who DOES NOT MATTERAaargh this is something I ve seen in Anne Rice s novels time and again especially n ueen of the Damned and The Witching Hour every character briefly mentioned will get this endless examination of their lives We do not need this much detail about every irrelevant side characterAnd there s Dora I m going to leave aside the bizarre menstruation feeding and just ask what is wrong with this woman Lestat comes to her having killed her dad and she starts calling him darling Where did darling come from What Why And she goes from not caring about relics because they re just physical objects and faith comes from within to being completely enraptured and obsessive about a relic Her characterisation didn t even begin to make senseWe do have the everyone is bisexual continuation since even Lestat s victims were But it s again not conveyed well For a start the whole religious monologue that consumes this book puts the love for men and women as a dramatic holy amazing experience and it s always men and women The divine heterosexual is really strong thereAnd his new bisexual victim Roger slept with women and boys Why are we expressly saying boys there And the only partner we learn any detail about is of course a woman which is very reminiscent of the same problems in The Tale of the Body ThiefRead More

Summary Memnoch The Devil

Memnoch The Devil

S creation to visit purgatory to be treated like a prophet Lestat faces a choice between the Devil or God Whom does he believe in Who does he serve What are the element of religious belief Lestat finds himself caught in a whirlpool of the ultimate choic In Memnoch the Devil Anne Rice has allowed herself to indulge in an orgy of purple prose We hear so much about the lush greenery of the early Earth that we begin to forget what the story is about And because of this not much actually happens in the story If this book were made into a film in fact it would probably be no than 20 minutes longAside from that this isn t much of a vampire chronicle The purpose of this book seems not to be to tell a tale of the vampires but only to further Rice s latent agenda to besmirch Christianity Albeit there s nothing wrong with that in itself but I was expecting to hear about vampires and instead I hear about nothing but God and The DevilIf you plan to read this book and perhaps you should if you plan to read the rest of the chronicles which are worth a read btw I would highly recommend skimming through the 250 some pages at the middle of the book paying close attention only to the beginning and end of the tale

Re that the Devil knows who he is and wants something from him While torn betwen his vampire world and his passion for Dora Lestat is sucked in by Memnoch who claims to be the Devil himself Memnoch presents Lestat with unimagined opportunities to witnes At the time that I read this book I was an agnostic pagan ex catholic confused about religion person Anne Rice s techniue and passion is so persuasive that I was a true believer after reading this book And this was before she converted back to Catholicism She is just so powerful her narrative techniue is I want to say loving towards her reader I think her love for the characters she s created makes that happen Anyway this one is a must for followers of the chronicles and fans of Lestat My copy of this book is signed by the author and it was a pleasure to meet someone who s imagination was so unhampered that she could walk into the judeo christian mythos with a vampire I would say that this book forshadows her eventual work with the Jesus story
