Let me start off by saying, I love the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice I'm reading them in the order they were published. And I have to say Pandora was different than the others - not in a bad way I quite liked the book.
And it was more than just the lack of Lestat in the story although he is discussed or the fact that it's set during Ancient Rome which was well researched, as always, by Anne Rice , No I generally don't like the female characters Anne Rice creates as much as the men they don't seem to have that same pizazz or edge , but Pandora changed this for me.
She has that fire that edge and her story doesn't disappoint. I didn't find the story to be as soul searching as the others For one thing, Pandora is mortal most of the story that's what really makes this story different One last thing about the book I thought the writing style in this book was the best of what I've read so far It's not as overwritten as her other books - and the result is this book is easier to read, easier to understand, and less repetitive than her earlier books.
I give the book 4 out of 5 because I enjoyed every bit of the book I read it in one day - I still think "The Vampire Lestat" is the best book in the series, but this one holds up well too.

Although Pandora is part of the "secondary characters" of the famous saga of the Vampire Chronicles, for me is one of my favorite books of Anne Rice.
With Pandora, Rice tells us the biography of this enigmatic vampire born in the ancient Roman Empire.

Yeah, Anne Rice said differently when she first mentioned Pandora. This book also reinforced my belief that Anne Rice is really at her best when she is writing historical fiction. The way she brought ancient Rome to life was fascinating. The way she made things seem so normal, yet so interesting was outstanding.
I look forward to reading more. What is it like to be one of them? To be admired only in the darkness, when men and women live with candles and lamps. To be known and described, only in the heaviness of the night, when all the business of the day has ended! I am so glad I have been finding near-mint conditions of her books at library book sales and started adding them to my collection over the last year.
Her writing is on another level of gorgeousness. She writes with such poise, elegance, and mystique. And, from what I remember about her previous book s I read, Pandora is no exception to the wonders of her writing style. One of the things I enjoyed so much about Pandora was all the history woven into the story. This story, however, is being told in writing as Pandora in the "present" time is writing her story in a letter.
Like many vampires we know, Pandora is "a morose, despairing immortal who initially wanted immortality but soon regretted her choice and turns into a dark, indifferent cynic. If you are a fan of Anne Rice's works, this is a no-brainer to pick up and continue your journey. If you are new to her world or returning after a long absence, then this book is quite nice to pick up and use to reacquaint yourself with her style and the world of vampires she has so wonderfully crafted. This one gets a 4 out of 5 stars from me and I am ready to add this woman to a list of authors whose complete bibliography I want to read!
I love reading stories about vampires and Anne Rice has it going on! I've had this book sitting on my bookcase back home since 8th grade and for some reason I never read it!
Well luckily for me, I found this gem the other weekend while I was visiting my parents and am so happy that I finally read it. In short, this book is about a 2, year old vampire named Lydia aka Pandora who lived during the height of the Roman Empire 15 B. She is approached by a young vampire named David in the Wow! She is approached by a young vampire named David in the streets of Paris to write down her mortal days leading up to her immortal change. Pandora is reluctant to disclose her past life with this stranger but his charms talk her into complying.
This novel read as she is writing her story for David. Pandora is a strong female lead character who is not only smart and witty, but years before her time in the areas of women's rights and feminism. She approaches religion with such curiosity yet skepticism that I find myself trying to absorb her words straight from the page or screen he he.
I honestly can't wait to read more of her works on vampires! View 1 comment.

I actually don't read vampire book. Well, I guess that's the risk or good thing of working in a bookshop. I've got curious about this book because of our loyal customer is so totally into this vampire things. When we got 'Pandora' on our list, we called her and she told that she got the book. So I put the book on the shelf to be sold. After a week, no one seem to buy the book and every time I check on the shelf I've grown overly curious about this book, so I end up borrowing the book from the I actually don't read vampire book.

To my surprise this book has caught me! What makes this vampire book interesting is main character, I've always fallin' in love with this strong woman character, plus the setting is in ancient Roman empire. I just love it! Dec 15, Julie Suzanne rated it did not like it Shelves: fantasy , escape-fiction. This was a discarded library book and I picked it up because the price was right and I thoroughly enjoyed the vampire trilogy that started with Interview and ended with Queen of the Damned.
Pandora's story was mildly interesting at points but mostly irritating. I don't love Rice's style of writing and it's really the plot that enticed my interest in the first 3. I didn't like Pandora, the character, and I couldn't care less about any of the other characters.
