Embarrasingly bad...

I absolutely adored the previous older vampire books from Anne, but this book almost makes me not want to read any more of her newer stuff... Completely without charm this one, Lestat is (never thought it possible) lame, and the reader..! This Richard E.Grant is absolutely overdoing the voicing, making even the simplest sentences sound like dramatic action, to the point of making it almost hilarious when the book`s mood is mostly serius. He is also faulty of the vampires sounding like angry grizzly bears 90% of the time, plus making the erotic scenes so embarrasing to listen that it is almost unbearably akward to manage through them. So far the worst audiobook I have ever downloaded, and since it really holds nothing important story-wise, I recommend people so shamelessly skip it and move to Armand.
