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.

Best of the series

If you could sum up The Queen of the Damned in three words, what would they be?

Best in series

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Queen of the Damned?

When the queen confronted the mountain top vampire in India

Have you listened to any of Kate Nelligan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Who was the most memorable character of The Queen of the Damned and why?

The queen herself because as evil as she was, you could understand her thoughts and reasoning.

Any additional comments?

I know the die-hard Ann Rice fans, at the time of this book's release, hated it, but I thought she'd topped herself.
