Glimpse into August’s Theme on A Bibliophile’s Reverie
How difficult is it to abstain from pondering the deep philosophical questions posed in Anne Rice’s novels, or dream of the opulent places brought to vivid life through Anne Rice’s awesome prose? For the serious Anne Rice fan, it can be hard to find another book similar to hers that involves meticulous research, supernatural elements, and seemingly inimitable characters. For the next few weeks, I’ll be reviewing several noteworthy titles that are similar to Anne Rice’s book in both style and genre. Hopefully, these recommendations will help you endure the long drought period of no new Anne Rice-related books for the next several months. Who knows when the next Anne Rice novel will appear once again?
Books that might potentially be reviewed
UPDATE: For Discovery of Witches, I’m fairly certain that I’ll be doing a discussion on how the book is a part of the growing trend of the domesticity of vampires: the strange fictional assimilation of vampires into our post-modern world. What does this connote? The book is taking a bit to get deeply invested in the story, but I’m eventually getting into it.
