it is not gratuitous As with all her work the plot twists is not gratuitous As with all her work the plot twists turns into corners where you cannot imagine a solution but somehow and credibly she adds a simple new twist and we are back on track She is a master story teller and this is the fourth of her books that I have enjoyed I like the way she thinks almost as much as her uneualled use of escriptive language surely uniue in this genre Both narrators are outstanding and I would highly recommend this set My friend gave me The Evil Seed as a gift The Evil Seed was her Data Analytics debut novel andue to popular The Mystery of Risk demand was republished this also happened with her second novel Sleep Pale Sister which I have also read and enjoyed I really enjoyed reading The Evil Seed the story was excellent two stories are told interwined throughout the book the story of R Something inside me remembersI loved this book but then it was hard not to as it has many of the elements I like mys. Something inside me remembersIt’s never easy to face the fact that a man you once loved passionately has found the girl of hisreams as Alice iscovers when Joe introduces her to his new girlfriend Ginny Jealous Alice is repelled by Ginny – an ethereal beauty with a sinis. ,
Ris particular rules for vampires I found myself really liking the modern protagonist Alice She was plucky and at least semi resourceful It was a shame that the 1950s protagonist Daniel was a bit of a wet flannel view spoiler Even after he turned into a vampire he "remained pathetic hide spoiler haunting and spectacular split "pathetic hide spoiler Haunting and spectacular Split the 1940s and a modern narrative 1980s90s 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 oesn t conform to many of the popular myths eg being unable to venture out in Yo salí del abismo daylight In 1948 Cambridge scholar Daniel Holmes rescues a girl called Rosemary fromrowning he falls madly in love only for her to start a relationship with his best friend His story charting a gradual The Life of Kitty Storm descent into obsession and madness is written as a journal In the modern narrative also set in Cambridge an artist named Alice isisconcerted when her ex boyfriend Joe asks her to offer a spare room to his strange new girlfriend the ethereal Ginny The Evil Seed was Joanne Harris s first novel reissued after her success with Chocolat etc and the author s foreword suggests she is now somewhat embarrassed by it It s easy to see why it is freuently amateurish and the style oesn t seem to have much in common with her later work although only having read two other books by Harris I m not an expert Many of the events stretch the limits of plausibility to say the least I m not talking about the vampire stuff but things like Joe expecting Alice to let Ginny stay in her house who would ever o this and Joe seeming completely unfazed at the idea that Ginny might be a heroin addict as if such a thing is no big Therapy of Love deal The characters emotions are all over the place and they often contradict themselves several timesuring the course of a few pagesThat said I still enjoyed this It s atmospheric compelling and fun and although I would

I Won T Saywon t say I was finding it a great story but it was ark and entertaining enough to keep me going Then that end confusing as it was made this story a complete letdownOn the positive side however it was a relief to read a story in which vampires are vicious cruel with a lust for blood Fortunately there are no vampires falling in love with a human being in this book. Far from forgottenAs the stories intertwine past and present are merged into one; Alice comes to realize that her instinctive hatred of Joe’s new girlfriend may not just be ue to jealousy as she’s plunged into a nightmare world of obsession revenge seduction – and bloo.
