REVIEW: Blackwood Farm by Anne Rice

Blackwood Farm
My Rating: 9 out of 10 stars

Having read this book back in 2003, I just gave it a quick reread prior to starting on Blood Canticle in order to refresh my memory on the characters and their situations.

I had forgotten how much I really liked this book. It was one of the best-written and most engaging tales Ms. Rice has written in the Vampire Chronicles, right up there with The Vampire Lestat in my book. Though I mentioned that I gave this a quick reread, there were actually very few parts I glossed over in the rereading; some of the more detailed passages that contained a lot of visual imagery perhaps, but only if I distinctly recalled that scene from my previous reading. This is one of those books that you just don't want to put down; the fact that I got through 626 pages in just 2 1/2 days is testament to that fact. Now on to Blood Canticle...
