This book has a thread of a good idea - a being who can switch bodies and Lestat who wants to be a human again - and RUINS it with endless talking and thinking about the same points ad nauseum. Scenes that could have Bullet Review: Wow.
Scenes that could have been powerful run FAR too long, thus running any good points into the ground. After, of course, long, clunky chapters talking about what God is, who the devil is, and all sorts of religious issues that the author must have been working through at the time. A quarter of a book later, Lestat meets up with the Body Thief.
They spend several long, clunky chapters going back and forth on a "deal" so that Lestat can use a human body for a week.
Lestat hems and haws and Louis and David chime in again too before he finally makes the switch, nearly halfway through the book. It involves taking a p! He pretty quickly decides that being human is one of the worst things in the world. Once Lestat is better, he rings up David and begs for his help to get his body back. I thought they were fascinating books, the characters were great, the mythos wonderful.
Sure, they are not action! So I gave myself a break, to renew my love of this series. And then I listened to this audiobook. Honestly, this could have and should have been a fabulous book.
Even the Body Thief himself was fairly interesting. The problem is, there was too much author intrusion, too much time spent on talking about various topics until their insight and usefulness had died a dismal death and too little time for the story to unfold.
To me, this was particularly apparent when Lestat was with Gretchen. What started out as a beautiful, sensual scene, quickly devolved into monotony and pedantry. Round and round, without end. If only the editor had the sense to cut the book in half! That half would have been the most brilliant, poignant story probably in the entire series!
Speaking of series, here comes the biggest question: do I continue?
