best storyteller since Robin Williams
Any additional comments?
Nowhere else have I found such a broad range of voices (except for maybe full audio productions and Robin Williams on a lovely rant).
After reading the reviews for this one, it’s obvious that the best way to enjoy Patrick McLean is to hear Patrick McLean.
For all those critical reviews begging for more, it’s a novella, guys. It’s a short, entertaining prequel. It’s supposed to be that way.
Even though I truly loved the story and want more myself, I do not want to read the story. I want Mr. McLean to tell me the story. So I'll have to wait for more How to Succeed in Evil.
I haven’t experienced any other book in this series. But apparently, others think the rest of them are even better than this little slice. Alas, I’ll just have to wait. I’ll have to adopt the patience of a vampire. (Wait, maybe I should kidnap Mr. McLean’s lawyer to get what I want. Hmmmm.)
I love the completely opposite take on vampires here. I mean, the idea of the vampire was a story that was supposed to scare the bejesus out of us, right? Then comes the twentieth century and the vision of the sexy, undeniable vampire. Then comes the twenty- first century where vampires love and sparkle.
Dark Shadows, the tv show is a bit before my time, but Johnny Depp’s version caught me because, well, Johnny Depp. And all I could see when hearing Barnabas was Johnny’s over the top make up and outdated assumptions of the world.
Part of me wondered, really sat and wondered, would a vampire have such a hard time adjusting? I mean, even though he’s lived a long time, how hard is it really to roll with the times, especially when you have the time to learn all kinds of things. OK, I’m still rolling that one over in my head.
At the end of the day, all I have to say is, just listen to Mr. McLean. That’s amazing in itself.
