Poor recording quality makes this a poor choice

I have been an Audible subscriber for over a year now, and this is by far the worst sounding book I have purchased to date. Even downloading it at quality 4, it is distorted with static and tinny. I wish that I had listened to the sample before purchasing this book as the quality greatly effects the emersion of one in the story.

Beautiful but hard to follow

As a long time fan of Anne Rice and her Vampire books, I delved quickly into Queen of the Damned. While I enjoyed the story, I found it at times very difficult to follow. The ABRIDGED recording seemed to jump at innoportune places and left me wondering what I had missed. Those seeking more insight into the lives of certain vampires, such as Pandora, Louis or Maruis, will find that there place has largely been cut from the story. Fans may want to wait for an unabridged recording to come out. Or read the book.
