    I was so thrilled to read your review! You summed up my feelings toward ALL of this, lol. A very long-time fan of Anne Rice here and (I think like pretty much everyone) have been unsure how this endeavor would turn out. They have surpassed my expectations in every way. I will be following your reviews and again- thank you for capturing the large and small details (omg, the Mayfairs!) that convey how much genuine love went into making this show. I feel like they have honored Anne, her creation, the fans that have been here and help new people discover this world.
    Much love!

      Thank you! Anne’s books have been a big part of my life since right after that first film adaptation came out almost 30 years ago (what even is time???), so I’m very protective of all of it. I definitely went into this equal parts wary and excited, and so far, the excitement part paid off.

      I’m having such a blast trying to find lines in the books after I hear them in the show and think they might be hers. They almost always are, and I *love* when the official show twitter shares some of the “show vs. page” snippets. And I have THEORIES about one particular character that I’m trying to sprinkle into the reviews as they come…As a warning to all, I will be utterly insufferable if I was right. 🙂

      For me, the biggest struggle will come with Claudia, but I’ll wait to really delve into that until after episodes 4-5 are on tv (whereas you can already stream 4 on AMC+, if twitter chatter is anything to go by).
