    I have been wanting to read Joanne Harris s first book for a very long time Now I got the chance and I m afraid it wasn t the best experience ever.I found the story a bit confusing towards the end, and that was a disappointment because the whole action was all jumbled I got the idea of what happened, but I am afraid that I may have lost something in the confusion of narrators voices I couldn t understand if it was

    Split between the 1940s and a modern narrative 1980s 90s , The Evil Seed tells of the havoc wreaked in the lives of two sets of characters by a beautiful and ruthless nightwalker Basically a vampire, although this kind doesn t conform to many of the popular myths, eg being unable to venture out in daylight In 1948, Cambridge scholar Daniel Holmes rescues a girl called Rosemary from drowning he falls madly in love, onl

    Joanne Harris first novel is nowhere near as good as her later work It s a clunky vampire novel, with dual timelines Half of the novel is set in the 1950s, while the other half is set in modern times However the two parts are essentially the same a manipulative and beautiful female vampire arrives in Cambridge, bewitches a gullible young man and continues her killing spree.There were some interesting elements to this novel

    Something inside me remembers I loved this book, but then it was hard not to, as it has many of the elements I like mystery, obsession, death, vampires, an old diary, complicated relationships, a great title and a gorgeous cover I ve been known to buy books based on less than the above mentioned things But this, I must admit, having spent a day reading most of it, was such a great story I was sad to see it end From the start I

    Joanne Harris can take the story of the hare and the tortoise as her raw material and use this to construct a majestic novel In this case it is a potentially very lame theme of vampirism But in her hands it becomes a three generation saga with mystery, intrigue and perfectly formed characters no werewolves, no glistening skin and no crap In fact the characters and plot are the focus, not the clich s about vampires There is blood and

    I wouldn t normally read books about vampires and I was disappointed by this book I read it because I have enjoyed other books written by Joanne Harris The clumpy story line and voice of the book made it hard to want to pick up and read I could tell that it was Harris first book and she had not yet found her voice that she has in later books It took me a long time to finish.

    Okay, let s see I liked this book however I didn t liked that much The things that I really loved in this one were the atmosphere and the scenerio and also how Joanne Harris used vampires It wasn t a cheesy vampire s story, thank god I wouldn t probably handle it to be honest Towards Rosemary Ginny I have these hate and love feelings, you see, she manipulated people and made them love her at the point that they would risk their lives to prot
