Here are the top 3 reviews and comments that readers love about this fascinating book.
Review 1: Memnoch the Devil audiobook by Charlie
Probably the best novel I’ve read in a while. Wonderful, thought provoking storyline which was so much more than I had anticipated given the themes of the vampire chronicles previous instalments. The narration was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed.
Review 2: Memnoch the Devil audiobook by Joni J Mielke
Exceptional narration marred by boring story
Although I liked the concept of Lestat being haunted by one of his victims, I found Anne Rice’s theological reinterpretation exhaustive and, in honest, quite boring. This is a big step away from the theme of the series thus far, which I found unappealing and unnecessary.
Simon Vance’s narration was pitch perfect.
Review 3: Memnoch the Devil audiobook by Jesse Johnson
I found this book to be a great read, don’t be fooled by the tile as I was. I expected a completely different story from what I got but loved it all the same. If you havn’t read any of the other stories in the vampire cronicles no worries they seem to read independently but I advise reading them all as Ann Rice refers to other books slightly and brings in older charaters you will be amused by. This story has a great ending and I would say is a must read.
