One thought on “The Witching Hour

  1. Elise Jensen

    I actually quite enjoyed this book up until the very end, when I felt like the main female character just had some sort of weird personality seizure and did something that the character as you ve come to know her just wouldn t have done It just made it seem poorly written to me, like Ms Rice decided in the last 10 pages or so that it was going to have a sequel after all when she had been intending from the beginning for it to be a one book story.

  2. Joe Valdez

    My witchathon concludes with The Witching Hour, the eleventh novel by Anne Rice Published in 1990, I was hoping it might be the author s thirteenth book, but this goth epic of blood, sugar, sex and black magic is a monster as is The word count is 327,360 words, 10,000 shy of Stephen King s baby high chair Under the Dome Rice is a gifted scenarist who sets the table for adult horror dripping with sensuality and dread, the type moviegoers had to imagine in the 1940s with thrillers like Cat People [...]

    I got this book for Christmas that year This was my first ever Anne Rice book, and it was about a year after Interview With A Vampire came out as a movie with Brad Pitt, Christian Slater and Tom Cruise I was blown away people If you like a story, like Gone With the Wind on crack, no seriously, epic like that, except VERY ADULT don t let your tweens get their hands on this one Mom s and Dad s , but such an addicting read that you may just get fired for calling in sick over it.This was far and awa [...]

    Warning SPOILERS And gifs Lots of both, actually.I don t even know how to summarize what I ve just finished It s like trying to tell someone what happens in a George RR Martin novel You might try to list item by item, but everything is woven with everything else there s no way to distinguish in the grand scheme Oh, y know Stuff happens People threaten each other People fight People die People have sex More stuff happens More people fight More people die The end Sorry, Robb Anyway.Before I get to [...]

    What a queer little book although at 1207 pages, little isn t the right word This was my first attempt at Anne Rice and I fear it might well be my last.Halfway through The Witching Hour , I was absolutely enthralled I loved the idea of The Talamasca At that stage of the story, I would have loved knowing it was a real organisation and applied for a job I revelled in learning the entire Mayfair history Anne Rice has a gift for choosing the words that bring it all to life I could imagine the house [...]

  6. Derek Oberg

    One of my top 3 favorite novels of all time Anne Rice gets a bad rap for being pure shlock, but what most people who haven t read her don t realize is that she is obsessed with history She studies a particular time period, learns everything she can about it, and then creates characters and sticks them in it She rarely disappoints me And her prose is beautiful You can sit down to read and realize that 2 hours have passed having not even noticed.This book is about a woman named Rowan Mayfair, who [...]

  7. Meredith Watson

    I FINALLY finished this Good Lord, what a long winded mess this was All the wordy history was boring but I stuck it out then ended up hating the ending Why in the world to I keep reading Anne Rice

  8. Aoibhínn

    The Mayfair s are an extremely powerful and wealthy family, in each generation there is a chosen one, a witch, who inherits not only the family home and money, but supernatural powers and an evil entity, named Lasher, who only has one aim to become human again The Witching Hour is an extremely long novel, 1207 pages, but don t let that put you off reading as once you open the first page you soon find yourself completely absorbed in the chilling tale of the Mayfair Witches This novel has a spellb [...]

  9. Zach

    This is one of the best books that I have read With her Dickensian writing, Anne Rice weaves a wonderfully dark and historically fascinating tale about a spirit attached to a family of witches Although this book is almost 1000 pages, it goes by so quickly The historical description of the family s travels from places such as Scotland and Port au Prince, Haiti is detailed in a way that made me swoon Yes, swoon.

  10. mark monday

    I imagine this as a fabulous mini series featuring Kathy Bates and Sharon Stone in key roles why can t this happen someone make this happen

  11. Olivier Delaye

    26 years ago Anne Rice decided to move away from her vampire chronicles for a little while and tackle another supernatural theme which until then hadn t showed up in her fiction witchcraft With this first installment in the Lives of the Mayfair Witches trilogy, she wrote the perfect family saga full of history, intrigues, description and boy is there a lot of it , fully crafted pun intended characters a plethora of them, actually , dark magic, creepy scenes and details boy, that scene in the cem [...]

    Review is tainted by romance.When my man and I first moved into the Garden District last summer while I was still a bartender we moved into a pristine apartment with a gallery balcony which overlooked Chestnut street Left in our room in an otherwise pristine apartment was a box of clutter left by the previous tenant She left spoons, a rubber ducky, a hideous vase and five Anne Rice novels I spent most of the summer mornings on the balcony reading the Mayfair witches series, starting with The Wit [...]

  13. Emma

    3.5 stars This is a long book The story is in no hurry to tell itself and meanders along like a slow running riverd that was ok It suited the detailed history of the Mayfair family from its earliest origins through to modern times.I would never have made it without doing it through audio The actual book has tiny print and close together lines and I only read it when I wanted to finish a chapter that I d started while driving The narrator did a fantastic job and her languid voice for much of the [...]

  14. Missy

    My favorite Anne Rice book of all time, anyone who reads this book will fall in love with New Orleans and Anne s writing Not a vampire book, and I do love her vampires, but this is the best.

  15. HeavyReader

    When I got to the end of this thick book, after having read hundreds of lukewarm pages, and found that it basically said to be continued, I was pretty pissed off If the book had been mine and not one I had borrowed from a friend, I would have tossed it across the room That was when I decided that I would never again buy an Anne Rice book I haven t.

  16. Gabrielle

    Here goes another teenage favorite that I just had to revisit, just to see how my tastes have evolved over time Why do I do this to myself This book is a hot mess Perhaps that s why I loved it so much when I was sixteen Now, I really see it as a multi generational, historical soap opera, with weird not always coherent occult elements, and lots of often weird sex That is not a bad thing a good, juicy, trashy read is fun every once in a while.This complicated, massive novel is the story of the May [...]

  17. Veronica

    Engrossing from the first paragraph Anne Rice is best known for her book, Interview With the Vampire, but she SHOULD be best known for this.This is an epic novel that follows the lives of the Mayfair witches through generations, time and place Eerie, magical, and mysterious Characters are woven into an intricate and mesmerizing plot Beautiful descriptive writing.I was chilled to the bone and genuinely scared during nearly every chapter, but addicted like nothing else Stayed up way past my bedtim [...]

  18. Deborah Obida

    I read this book back in 2011 immediately after I finished secondary school It took me forever to read it then but I loved the story even till today, I ve still not read anything quite like it.A generation of witches traced back to the 1800 now reside in new Orleans, the book is written in an amazing way, It s super crazy how Lasher the spirit they get their power from drive them to insanity and all.I m definitely going to reread it and finish the series because even after 6 years I ve still not [...]

  19. Lesli

    Knowing my love of vampires and witches, my sister, upon hearing a review of this book sent it to me for my Birthday and I cold not put it down This book connects the spirit world, with old world interest, new world love for anything gothic and just plain good writing I followed the witches, spirits and vampires in every book by Anne Rice This by far was the best

  20. Penelope Douglas

    Probably my favorite novel of hers As is the case with most AR books, I don t particularly connect with the characters as much as I do with the world she creates Love the web of history and how everything weaves together.

  21. Geek Lee

    Be Warned Thar be major SPOILERS ahead All and all, I loved this tale of a family with generations of witches The witches are so interesting and seductive Their spirit , Lasher, is an enigma who does both good and bad things to the Mayfair witches Anne Rice gave just enough information to keep me unsure but I always felt as though he was calling the shots with the witches, as early as Deborah The Mayfair witches are free spirits who rarely conform to the norms of the day The current witch, Dr Ro [...]

  22. Amy

    This book is bad in so many ways The most offensive being her erotic descriptions of incest and child sexual abuse activities She writes these as steamy harlequin romance moments with no alluding to the wrongness and damage these activities and crimes truly are in real life It s as if she champions them as some great sexual experiences That in and of itself is enough for me to hate a book Makes me wonder about her as a person That being said, and those parts aside, the beginning of the book is i [...]

    The whole time I was reading this 1,000 page epic, a thought continuously ran through my head This is Anne Rice s IT The subjects of The Witching Hour and Stephen King s horror novel couldn t be different, but the writing style its grandiosity is quite similar In this, surely the New Orleans author s magnum opus, a time span of three centuries is covered this is the quintessential generational saga The Mayfair family has a sordid, macabre past, and the center of it all is the large plantation h [...]

    Seventeenth Century Stonehenge a woman sways and chants beneath a stony sky, calling to the Devil We know there are such entities they may grant our wishes in ways that cause us to cry to heaven in desperation The Witching HourAnne Rice made terror respectable.Okay, so some of her recent efforts may have made me want my high school ring back, but her early work did for contemporary horror what P D James did for detective fiction legitimized it, returned it to the level of literature In 1976, Int [...]

  25. David Brasher

    This book stinks Anne Rice wrote really good vampire books, but the Feast of All Saints was dreadful and I couldn t finish Her book about the childhood of Christ was horribly slow and boring The Witching Hour goes on and on and on It is as boring as real life You just wait for something to happen Every few pages she gets around to saying something about someone who may or may not be a witch.The narrative runs sort of like, In 1954 one of our investigators talked to a maid who lived down the stre [...]

  26. Abbey

    I always hated vampire witch stories but my honors English teacher in high school recommended this book to me for our final paper Its about 1000 pages long so I used the first 500 hundred and literally fell in love Since then I have read the book about five times I LOVE IT It centers around a wealthy family living in New Orleans, there is a spirit that follows one woman in every generation and the story follows the spirit from its conception It is a really interesting, complex novel with many la [...]

    after reading most of the vampire chronicles, i decide to try Rice s Witches trilogy i know that for a lot of people, this book was hard to get through there s a lot of information in it that seems like, well who the hell cares but it s all relevant in one way or another, and it SOOOOOOOOOOO sets you up for the subsequent novels, Lasher, and Taltos there s also Merrick, Blackwood Farm, and Blood Canticle, which came later if you can bear with a somewhat slow read for a little while, this book is [...]

  28. Jennifer Prickett

    Did not like this book Her description skills are beautiful, which drew me in initially plus I was looking for a book that would take me longer than a day to read, and at over a thousand pages You can SEE and FEEL what she says, like your in the room with her looking and touching her characters and environments So I gave it a star for that.However How do you write over six hundred pages without touching on a story plot I was kind of entranced by the huge history she gave the family, but I realiz [...]
