Forse nemmeno lui ricorda più il suo vero nome, l’ha perso tanto tempo fa insieme all’innocenza. Ora si fa chiamare Lucky the Fox, o Tommy Crane, o in cento altri modi, e il suo mestiere è uccidere su commissione. Un enorme dolore nel suo passato l’ha spinto su questa strada disperata, e uccidere è la sua sola missione. Ma in fondo al suo cuore è rimasto qualcosa del ragazzo che suonava divinamente il liuto e amava leggere Tommaso d’Aquino. E proprio il pensiero di quello che è stato e di quello che avrebbe potuto essere manda in crisi Lucky the Fox, e lo spinge al suicidio. Se una vita non ha senso, meglio interromperla per sempre. Ma, proprio quando tutto sembra perduto, entra in scena Malchiah, un angelo, che gli offre una seconda possibilità: viaggiare nel tempo, tornare nell’Inghilterra del XIII secolo, e salvare un’esistenza perduta del passato, riscattando l’ignominia del suo presente con un gesto nobile…

It's probably been more than a decade since I last read Anne Rice. After the masterful fifth volume of Vampire Chronicles "Memnoch the Devil", the last one I delved into was, I guess, "Pandora." So I met "Angel Time" with its due enthusiasm. The plot was particularly odd, but engaging. There are nod Leggi tutto
This is my 2nd novel to read of 2019. I start this in December in my car and had to stop in the middle for holiday. It didn't bother me a bit to put this down. It was difficult to keep going and there were several times I almost stopped and gave it up. I have read 20 novels by Anne Rice and she is a Leggi tutto
Considero a Anne una de mis autoras favoritas, amo la forma en que escribe y como crea ambientes tan oscuros, y que sus personajes tengan esa esencia de melancolía y decadencia. Pero con todo el asunto del cambio de religión sacó esta trilogía, ( de la que todavía nos debe la tercera parte). Me anim Leggi tutto
Edit As it has been two years and I have not been struck down by lightning yet, I feel safe enough to lower my rating to the 1 star I originally wanted to give. The back cover of Angel Time sounded quite exciting, but once I started reading I was harshly reminded of the fact that "you shouldn't judge Leggi tutto
Being a long time Anne Rice Fan, I had looked forward to reading this book. Her religious journey, like mine, had been bumpy at best. So, I was very curious after the Christ the Lord series what she may do next...and I wasn't disappointed. Angel Time is an exceptional novel dealing in the story of an Leggi tutto
I have to admit the last paragraph blew me away. But this is my least favorite of all Rice's books. It was a challenge to get thru this one.
I knew there was going to be trouble with this book as soon as I read the main character, an assassin, is a great lute player. Uh, yeah, right. Maybe it's just that I love the old style Anne Rice, but this book found me shaking my head and saying "oh, Anne, Anne, Anne". I think her recent return to
Esta novela deja bastante que desear porque en el esfuerzo de unir diferentes componentes con el fin, supongo, de alcanzar un libro más impactante, sólo se logran pegar historias que ni unidas ni separadas convencen al lector. Así, se comienza con la historia de vida del asesino... larga, cansadora y Leggi tutto
I finally finished this book and I am not sure that it was worth the time or effort. This was my first Anne Rice book and I was honestly surprised at how badly written it was. The dialogue was extremely simplistic and the prose was so didactic that it read more like a plot outline than a fully flesh Leggi tutto
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I was interested, entertained, and at the same time expecting some of the more homoerotic and/or gruesome detail that her old books used to contain but this book had none of it. The book is lovely and written perfectly. Anne Rice always has a tendency to ove Leggi tutto
