Hey there, book addicts!
I hope you guys are doing well. The latest for me includes getting my water tank replaced because the hot water died and my doggo was a little psycho about it. But then, she’s always an itty bitty psycho. LOL.
For this Speedy Quote Sunday I tapped on some Anne Rice. She’s remarkable in her storytelling and writing, though I do feel like it’s out quite a bit. The style of it has an erotic and lush touch that whisks the reader away, allowing them to almost forget that her world coincides with the real one. Rice is a classic and stand-out.
“Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult.” (Interview With the Vampire, Anne Rice)
Rice really went out and said what we all struggle with from day to day, but with vampires. Louis, the main character of this book, struggled to let go of his humanity and this was one of the major crutches he still held onto. That, and guilt. This line struck true. As hard as we, as people, try to be our best selves and live our best lives, it’s always easier to give in to doing something bad and ten times harder to do right. The struggle seems so backward and the question of why is just as hard as the question: Why are we here?
“Stars filled every quadrant of the heavens. The moon drew her veil and then lowered it again, and the soft breeze made the pines shiver ever so slightly,” (Taltos, Anne Rice)
This line was just flat-out beautiful. I got lost in its imagery so easily. Rice gives the supernatural such an aged touch, like fine wine. rich and luxe with a dark, craving undertone.
More to come soon…
