Nell'ultima oscurità che precede l'alba, una ragazza, appoggiata al parapetto di un ponte sulla Senna, guarda cupamente il fiume. Una figura incappucciata le si avvicina, l'avvolge nel mantello e, fulminea, le azzanna il collo per succhiarle il sangue e appagare così, anche per un solo giorno, l'insaziabile sete. Pandora ha ucciso ancora, ma qualcuno ha visto tutto, qualcuno che condivide con lei un'esistenza regolata da un'unica legge: uccidere per vivere. Costui è David Talbot, che, arso dalla curiosità di conoscere la vita di Pandora, splendida Figlia dei Millenni, la convince a scrivere la sua storia. Una storia d'amore e di orrore cominciata duemila anni prima...

Let me start off by saying, I love the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice (I'm reading them in the order they were published). And I have to say Pandora was different than the others - not in a bad way (I quite liked the book). And it was more than just the lack of Lestat in the story (although he is d Leggi tutto
Although Pandora is part of the "secondary characters" of the famous saga of the Vampire Chronicles, for me is one of my favorite books of Anne Rice. With Pandora, Rice tells us the biography of this enigmatic vampire born in the ancient Roman Empire. Her story is a mixture of hope, tragedy, adventu Leggi tutto
• Oct. 22, 2006: This is really an outstanding story overall. There were very few things that took away from it, and even those didn’t bother me that much. Yeah, Pandora is another rich vampire from an aristocratic family. Yeah, Anne Rice said differently when she first mentioned Pandora. Again, tha Leggi tutto
"Look, the stars have all but faded. What is it like to be one of them? To be admired only in the darkness, when men and women live with candles and lamps. To be known and described, only in the heaviness of the night, when all the business of the day has ended!"
Pandora, by Anne Rice, was written in 1998 and it is the first book in The New Tales of The Vampires series. This is the first Anne Rice book I have read since 2000, where I read Interview With The Vampire and part of The Vampire Lestat. I am so glad I have been finding near-mint conditions of her Leggi tutto
Si esperas encontrarte con una nueva historia de Vampiros, lamento decepcionarte, sin ser malo el libro, sí resulta algo lento e insatisfactorio. Comienza muy bien, no lo puedo negar, pero la narración de la vida mortal de Pandora se va dilatando durante mucho tiempo a lo largo del libro, de forma q Leggi tutto
This was a discarded library book and I picked it up because the price was right and I thoroughly enjoyed the vampire trilogy that started with Interview and ended with Queen of the Damned. Pandora's story was mildly interesting at points but mostly irritating. I don't love Rice's style of writing an Leggi tutto
Wow! I love reading stories about vampires and Anne Rice has it going on! I've had this book sitting on my bookcase back home since 8th grade and for some reason I never read it! Well luckily for me, I found this gem the other weekend while I was visiting my parents and am so happy that I finally re Leggi tutto
I actually don't read vampire book. Well, I guess that's the risk (or good thing) of working in a bookshop. I've got curious about this book because of our loyal customer is so totally into this vampire things. When we got 'Pandora' on our list, we called her and she told that she got the book. So I Leggi tutto
Pandora wanted to set the record straight about Lestat's version of what Marius said about her. She does so, but not much more was revealed to us about her thousand-year life than the beginning and her transformation into a vampire. She wandered Europe for centuries, but chooses to spend 400 pages o Leggi tutto
