    1. That it I m afraid I m finished with Anne Rice after following her since the first there s only so much angst you can take before depression sets in Early Anne Rice novels, the first Lestat books in particular, carried you along in wonderment at a new view of the world, but that wonder has grown stale and stagnant, and lanquid posing while waiting for the next sexual frisson does not, for me anyway, make for interesting reading.Wondering about your place in the world is all very well, but most o [...]

    2. Vittorio The Vampire is the second novel in the New Tales of the Vampires series by the legendary Anne Rice Honestly, I first read this novel a few years ago, but I fell in love with this story so much that I had to read it again I ve read some love and some hate reviews on this novel and honestly, I don t see why their would be any hate Sure, everyone s opinions are welcome, but I personally think this novel turned me into a vampire lover Yes, I know many will say, Not her Vampire Chronicles no [...]

    3. contains spoilers Okay, so here s the thing Interview with the Vampire, Rice s debut novel and at the same time the first novel in the now two digit numbered Chronicles of the vampires series, was published in 1976, but written in 1973, following the tragic passing away of Rice s young daughter Michele of leukemia in 1972 It has since then gone on to become an international bestseller and literary classic even outside of its genre, as well as being an integral part in founding a new understandin [...]

    4. The truth is that I really wanted to finish with all the Chronicles and Vittorio managed to convince me that I am right by doing just that I barely managed to get through the entire book and very often I wanted to put it aside, and only my persistence kept me going I think I got tired of the writing style, with the same descriptions and lack of engaging action The mixing of the vampires and angels is a bit peculiar, for some it all falls in the supernatural category, but for me is a bad mixture [...]

    5. If there was a half a star I would have given it to that silly boring book I am really sorry for this Anne Rice used to take me to places of wonder but in this book she took me to a hell called what the hell is this I wont say much but I really hated this book I really love Anne Rice and all the vampire chronicles but this one is a failure

    6. Vittorio the Vampire is the second and final book in the series New Tales of the Vampires by Anne Rice It s different from the previous novel, Pandora This novel has entirely original characters Whereas Paganism played an important role in Pandora, Christianity is the focus in this novel.And I think that s the part of the novel that shines By this time in the series, the vampire thing is kind of old I still enjoy the vampire aspect, but I found the angels in this book to be a refreshing and a co [...]

    7. I probably got to page 43 50, and then started to jump around in the book, and decided to read the end of the book Well the first couple chapters I was enjoying, when the character was talking about his about his life, but when his family was slaughtered, he goes out finding the Ursela, who had put the attack on his family, he finds her, is ready to take his revenge, blah blah blah, just to be made into a vampire, then falls in love with her OKAY to me that is just weird, you fell in love with t [...]

    8. This is a great novel What I have learned is that by the love a person can be saved and by the love that very same person can be doomed and brought into the world of shadows and blood Living forever and always remembering the sins is the greatest burden because there is no coming back Vittorio s rage to revenge brought him into the hands of those who destroy and kill for living Imagine yourself being in love with someone who saved only one life, yours WHAT WOULD YOU DO Would you continue to hate [...]

    9. Strange and somewhat different in style than Anne Rice s usual vampire writing This means that it was exciting wondering what horror was going to unfold next, but the character was not full of passion and wonder and dear to my heart the way her Vampire Chronicles characters are But I think Anne Rice meant for it to be that way seems she just wanted to get out of her comfort zone.My biggest problem with this story was the repetition of each of her vampires why do they all have to come from wealth [...]

    10.

    11. This one was interesting mostly for the section where the main character is held prisoner along with dozens of other humans by a coven of vampires The coven is basically farming the humans keeping them barely alive with vampire blood mixed into their food, harvesting the ones who get too weak and turning the stronger survivors into vampires themselves It s an odd concept The rest of the book Convoluted and boring.

    12. I guess this book embodies the reason that I don t read Anne Rice books they re kind of boring The main character is super chatty and SUPER angsty Angels and demons and all kinds of nonsense made it kind of a weird book I suppose I d like it if I was less sarcastic and had a longer attention span.

    13. I read this twice not because I loved it, but because I wanted to see if my initial opinion was still there I found this one to be, well, boring It felt like nothing happened I had no emotional connection with Vittorio, at all It was a disappointment Alas.

    14. The story spins around Vittorio as the sole survivor of his family, out for vengeance and vampire blood Tricked and toyed with he looks like one of those Young Adult book characters, a young warrior with no than a sword against the darkest forces pits of hell could produce It was good in a sense that it no longer felt stamped, as Chronicles started feeling to me And the rest of this is at NMR

    15. Whoever knows Anne Rice, knows they can only expect one thing from her Surprise.Despite her several books about vampires, each character is completelly unique, with different characteristics, fears and powers.Vittorio is another one of them Even though he s similar, on some points, to Louis from Interview with a Vampire , he has a much warrior like disposition, because, unlike Louis, Vittorio was born during the Italian Renaissance period, being educated as a knight, to protect his land.The sto [...]

    16. Vou confessar, comprei esse livro enganada Achei que fazia parte das cr nicas vampirescas, com o Lestat e companhia e s depois descobri que era uma hist ria nica Tamb m um livro de vampiros, mas n o tem rela o com os demais da s rie Por conta disto, ele passou uns 17 anos abandonado na estante E o pior, que a hist ria boa Mas se eu tivesse lido naquela poca, quando estava de birra, teria detestado.Vittorio vai explicar logo no comecinho, que essa a historia dele de como sua fam lia inteira foi d [...]

    17. Some years ago I read the Mayfair Witches series and I really enjoyed it So, why not read one of Anne Rice s vampire books Big mistake This book was a total disappointment Vittorio, son of a rich lord, sees his family slaughtered by a group of vampires and only escapes because a female vampire, Ursula, thinks him extremely attractive Vittorio swears vengeance and with the help of a group of guardian angels, sets out to kill the sons of the devil But the growing fascination he feels for Ursula do [...]

    18. It is my least favorite Anne Rice, because it takes place in the 17th Century It is magnificent There are no werewolves with these vampires but there are Angels It has all the Anne Rice characteristics of Good and Evil, Blood, Sex and Love It is written in the formal style of speaking at that time in history And also includes the ignorance, violence and prejudices of the time Showing that she did alot of research for the story, at the end of the book, in addition to her usual Note on the Type, s [...]

    19. I thought this book was going to be like Pandora In a way, i was It s the story of how Vittorio first became a vampire But, I didnt like it For starters, he is a 16 year old boy and she makes it seem like he is a knowledgeable man, fully grown I get it, back in the 1400 s boys were stronger and were taught in the ways of Lordly ways and war But Vittorio is 16 I find this story really hard to believe Oh, and throw in the gaurdian angels and the constant referenced to Christianity This was an easy [...]

    20. I found that this novel was a bit of a disappointment On the one hand, Vittorio is a deep character with enough angst coursing through his body he could put Edward Cullen to shame Vittorio is angry, lustful, depressed, and confused as he moves throughout the story, and Rice manages to capture that rather well However, many of the scenes are described rather dreamily This could be on purpose, as Ursula seduces Vittorio, and we the readers are taken along for the ride If so, then it is an interest [...]

    21. For me it is always a hit or miss with Anne Rice This one was a miss When she was actually writing about the actual story that was relevant I was intrigued, but the way it was written in a rampant fashion that often became sidetracked and the narrator Vittorio constantly had to check himself to get back on track, it was distracting and kept me from engaging as well as becoming invested in him and his story I DNF at 60 mark or so Too many books on my list to MAKE myself read something

    22. So I am done with all of Anne Rice s vampire novels All twelve It was kind of hard to keep reading in some spots, like Merrick and Memnoch the Devil, but I managed it Vittorio the second of Rice s New Tales of the Vampires, the spin off series Apparently the second and also the last, since she hasn t touched it since this one in 1999 So this was written right after The Vampire Armand and obviously Rice was going through a Renaissance phase, since Armand took place during the High Renaissance and [...]

    23. Aagghh no le voy a poner ni una estrellita de lo p simo que es, me decepciono, esperaba m s de Anne Rice

    24. Rese ado en mi blog Nanny BooksEsta historia escapar totalmente de la saga de Lestat, para mostrarnos la visi n perturbadora de un vampiro doblemente maldecido.He de decir que al comienzo no me enganch , principalmente porque no aparec a Lestat Sin embargo, a las pocas p ginas me qued totalmente cautivada de la historia de Vittorio.Un vampiro en un castillo nos cuenta su historia humana Vittorio era un joven noble, muy educado y rico que no deb a temer su futuro Pero cuando una corte de vampiros [...]

    25. Vittorio, O vampiro, o segundo e ultimo desta s rie de contos E diferente do romance anterior, come ando pela religi o que em Pandora, o Paganismo desempenhou um papel importante nela, aqui o Cristianismo.Vittorio nasceu durante o per odo da Renascen a Italiana, educado como um cavaleiro para proteger a sua terra Come ando a Hist ria por falar sobre a vida de Vittorio e a sua fam lia, que dona de um terreno grande em It lia, onde vive a sua e outras fam lias que pai protege.Aparecem alguns vampi [...]

    26. It hurts me to give this book a 2 star rating.I love most of Anne Rice s stories, so it sucks that this one wasn t that great I loved the first 2 chapters of this book It started out pretty nice and strong It had a great opening paragraph, where Vittorio describes holding his brother and sisters severed heads in his arms And I was like, fuck yeah This is gonna be some good shit But it wasn t It really wasn t Because then it just went nose diving downhill I hate Anne Rice s tendency to bring in G [...]

    27. It s hard to describe what I thought about this book I had no problems reading though it it wasn t unbearable or anything I found Vittorio to be adorable and easy to relate to Most other characters weren t terribly well developed, so I didn t connect much with them It s an easy read, but not necessarily in the best way.The whole books seems sort of amateurishly written Not what I expect from Anne Rice Transitions from one time and place to another seem to happen a little too conveniently or easi [...]
