Book review: Anne & Christopher Rice’s Ramses the Damned: The Passion Of Cleopatra

I read the first in this series, The Mummy: Ramses The Damned, shortly after it was published, and this book wonderfully picks up where the first one ended. Julie, Ramses, the Earl of Rutherford, his son, and Cleopatra are seamlessly brought back to life. Two new characters, Queen Bektaten and the author Sybil Parker are great additions to the story line. The development of Bektaten is good: a queen that kiks ass and then takes names. Sybil has a connection with Cleopatra that is well played. While the book ends with most items wrapped up neatly, there is sufficient room to set up another book.

Book Review: Jasper Fforde’s The Well Of Lost Plots

For her own safety from the Goliath Corporation, Thursday has been chased into Book World. She is pregnant with her eradicated husband’s child, and through the Character Exchange Program she is taking over a role in a book under development in the Well of Lost Plots. The Well is where books are developed and exists within the Book World library, administered by the Cheshire Cat.

Book Review: Jasper Fforde’s Lost In A Good Book

Fforde continues the wordplay in this next installment of the Thursday Next series with a theme of coincidences. Acheron is gone, but we meet his sister Aornis and she has a major impact on Thursday. Her husband Landen has been eradicated, changing her life so that no one remembers him, and she has to decide if she should rescue Jack Schitt. She also has to attend to her celebrity status due to her work on the book Jane Eyre, while concurrently fighting a court battle in Book World over this. Alongside all of this is the possibility of a new Shakespeare play being discovered. We learn about Book World, Jurisfiction and its members, Granny Next, and others.

Book Review: Jasper Fforde’s The Eyre Affair

I really like the concept of Literary Detectives having to protect books and their characters. The humor is a bit campy, which is fine by me, but there are few apparent editorial quirks, Dad’s role is a bit distracting, and the love interest was so-so. I withhold a more severe commentary until I see where Jasper takes this concept. See my full video book review here! The Eyre Affair

Book Review of Anne Rice: Prince Lestat and the Realm of Atlantis

In this particular instance, Lestat was not engaging and too wishy-washy, with the book ending in a love fest. Though some of the new characters are interesting, the amount of time spent on Atlantis is too much for this reader. 3 of 5 stars (maybe a little more, since I typically like what Anne writes. )See my full video book review here: Prince Lestat and the Realm of Atlantis
