I have read them all as well. Really FE? I like Blackwood Farm. Usually we are on the same page.

I thought Blackwood Farm had some good stuff in it, then I thought it had some rather pointless, badly written passages as well. The most disappointing thing to me about the later ones is that I could still see glimpses of what originally drew me to Rice as a writer but that it was buried under very repetitive stories and paper-thin characters. The stuff about the ghost was actually quite interesting though. And I was suprisingly moved by the death of a certain character at the end even though they hadn't been around in the series for long.

I can see that. Lestat's rant about Memnoch the Devil in the beginning nearly doomed the book for me. It seemed very..umm.. unlike him, I guess. Different language, different attitude and what was all that crap about him sounding like a gangster?

Yeah, in later books I felt she sort of lost the characters' voices. Still, overall, I'm not sorry that I read all the books, even though I felt the best of them came early.
