These are not people without talent, but I am starting to wonder why they cannot manage to produce works that, while related to previous stories, do not rely on the earlier works verbatim.

At the risk of sounding cynical, whatever sells, sells. Anne Rice has hit the level of cult status. She could probably publish her grocery list. Personally, I dislike her style intensely. The occasional starting of a sentence with a conjunction is one thing, but she takes it way overboard. So many of her sentences begin with "and" her books read like the King James Bible.

I loved Interview with the Vampire. Absolutely adored it, read my one copy to pieces and bought another one. It was like a hot fudge sundae, and I could not wait for the next book. The Vampire Lestat was another hot fudge sundae, nice but not as good as the first one, and I really couldn't see the appeal of his character. I mean, the guy is over 200 years old and still acts like a spoiled teenager. Then there was the third one which was yet another hot fudge sundae, only gooier and the nuts were stale. I gave up after that one. It was to the point where all I could see were sentences beginning with "and."

Or am I just being nit-picky?

Nah. You've just had one too many hot fudge sundaes.

Uhura :o)
