Morto carbonizzato sul sagrato della cattedrale di Saint Patrick, a New York: questa era la fine che tutti credevano avesse fatto il vampiro Armand. Invece Armand è sopravvissuto ed è pronto a raccontare al vampiro-biografo David Talbot la sua vita, lunga oltre cinquecento anni. Bello come un angelo, Armand ha l’aspetto di un eterno adolescente; tuttavia, dietro quell’eterea sembianza, si celano una vicenda colma di violenze e un’anima tormentata e profondamente inquieta. Dalle steppe russe alla Venezia più misteriosa fino all’incontro con Marius, il Maestro, colui che gli offrirà la conoscenza e l’immortalità, colui che lo salverà dall’abisso e lo condannerà in eterno...

I have no words for how unendurably horrible and boring this book is. Armand knows only how to cry, beg people to love him and seemingly can't get his head around Christ. He is a pathetic wanker that can do nothing on his own, with an unhealthy obsession with Lestat...whom he both loves and hates. H Leggi tutto
For all I adore this book and reread it whenever I feel down, underline some thought provoking passages and short phrases Anne Rice uses and admire her writing style for it's uniqueness, I still believe that Anne Rice showed her crazy in the second half of The Vampire Armand. Armand is the Botticelli Leggi tutto
Armand es mi vampiro favorito de las crónicas, y conocer su historia fue asombroso. Hubo muchas cosas que me gustaron, la forma en que está el orden del libro fue una de ellas, con ls frases en italiano que lo hicieron más adorable. Me encanta como se plasmaron sus origines desde que fue humano en Rus Leggi tutto
Horrid. "Egg yoke"? Seriously? She doesn't know the difference between "yoke" and "yolk"? Armand is in a new room. She spends an hour describing that room. Then spends an hour describing the clothes they wear while standing in that room. Then spends an hour explaining how Armand feels about the clothes t Leggi tutto
I'm completely unable to like this book. I just can't. I only read it because I'm a fan of Anne Rice's Vampires' series. I was never really Armand's fan and this book only made me hate him even more. I even tried to see the story through his and Marius' point of view, but no matter how beautiful may Leggi tutto
Lestat lies in a coma-like sleep in a chapel and while vampires gathers around him, Armand tells his story to David Talbot, Lestat’s former Talamascan fledgling. Armand takes us with him through his childhood in Kiev; from where he is kidnapped and sold to slavery, to Venice where Marius saves him a Leggi tutto
I am giving this book two stars only because Anne Rice is a talented author, and I can’t bear to give this a single-star rating (though, honestly, it might deserve it). Man, what a bummer. I loved the last four volumes in this series, but this was a mess. Written after a short hiatus from the Vampir Leggi tutto
This is where I stopped in the series. Anne Rice had the habit of making all her characters extremely homo erotic from the beginning, but I could deal with it because the stories were excellent. I had to draw the line at this book though. Reading about ancient vampires giving and receiving head from Leggi tutto
Well, this is my second favorite book in the Vampire Chronocle series (the first is Blackwood Farm, then this, then The Vampire Lestat!). The reason I love this book is not only the character (Armand, who is without a doubt my favorite!! Sorry Lestat! You're second!), but also the fact that he dicta Leggi tutto
What I got from this Novel, is that it is a book about Love, and secondary of Faith. Now u may be saying wait a minute, oh no, must of have been a pre-cursor to Twilight, (which BTW I have not read yet). This is hardly a book bout' "Puppy Dog" teenage love Also I have noted some controversy amongst o Leggi tutto
