REVIEW ´ The Evil Seed Õ [Reading] ➽ The Evil Seed Author Joanne Harris – Something inside me remembersIt’s never easy to face the fact that a man you once loved passionately has found the girl of his dreams as Alice discovers when Joe introduces her to his new girlfriend Something inside me remembersIt’s never easySomething inside me remembersIt’s never easy to face the fact that a The Evil Epubman you once loved passionately has found the girl of his dreams as Alice discovers when Joe introduces her to his new girlfriend Ginny Jealous Alice is repelled by Ginny – an ethereal beauty wit. I have been wanting to read Joanne Harris's first book for a very long time Now I got the chance and I'm afraid it wasn't the best experience everI found the story a bit confusing towards the end and that was a disappointment because the whole action was all jumbled I got the idea of what happened but I am afraid that I may have lost something in the confusion of narrators' voices I couldn't understand if it was Daniel's voice or the omniscient narrator's voice from Alice's parts that was being usedThis messy ending ruined the story for me I won't say that I was finding it a great story but it was dark 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

H a sinister group of friendsThen Alice finds an old diary hidden away in Ginny’s room and reads about Daniel Holmes and his friend Robert and the mysterious woman who bewitched them both – Rosemary Virginia Ashley buried in Grantchester churchyard half a century ago – burie. Something inside me remembersI loved this book but then it was hard not to as it has many of the elements I like mystery obsession death vampires an old diary complicated relationships a great title and a gorgeous cover I’ve been known to buy books based on less than the above mentioned things But this I must admit having spent a day reading most of it was such a great story I was sad to see it end From the start I was captivated by Alice who makes her living from art There is a scene where the author describes Alice at work painting a scene of ethereal beauty so immersed in her work she forgets herself or the time and I thought how very much like Joanne Harris she is because I was so engrossed in this book I wasn’t able to put it down and I was surprised to see hours had passed and I hadn’t moved from my chair on the balcony under the mango tree because this book had me under a spell There’s a dreamy uality to the writing a Gothic thread running through the whole story and it turns and twists bringing new elements to the surface The story is told from the point of view of two narrators Daniel Holmes whose tale begins after the Second World War and Alice who bring the story into present day I liked how their experiences were like two halves that joined together made it complete Their stories have a central point – Rosemary the young girl of ethereal beauty who brings destruction and death wherever she is There were times when I wondered if Rosemary wasn’t a victim herself condemned never to rest bringing tragedy to all the men who loved her and they in return not being able to let go of her commit the sin that will bring about a new cycle of destruction And so it goes a wheel within a wheel unbroken in time because to truly break it would mean forgetting and they can’t do that no one who has known her can I have another book by Joanne Harris Blueeyedboy bought years ago on a whim because I had always wanted to read something by the author of Chocolat a movie I loved even if I haven’t read the book I’m now glad that I started with this because it only made me want to read of her work I was surprised to see uite a few negative reviews on goodreads people complaining of this and that how certain elements are not believable Oh well if you can’t suspend your disbelief remember this is a vampire novel then maybe this is not the book for you I’m glad this is the kind of novel where vampires are old in age only of course cruel and beautiful and at the same time as vulnerable as they are ferocious in their hunger I wish there was a seuel I wish I knew who Rosemary truly was and where she was born and how she came to be such a destructive force over such a long time But even if I will never know her whole story I can still love the book because like all good stories it’s made of shadow and light and the shadow is intriguing enough that whatever comes into the light is enough to make it unforgettableI will remember


The Evil SeedD but 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 due to jealousy as she’s plunged into a nightmare world of obsession revenge seduction – and bloo. I wouldn't normally read books about vampires and I was disappointed by this book I read it because I have enjoyed other books written by Joanne Harris The clumpy story line and voice of the book made it hard to want to pick up and read I could tell that it was Harris' first book and she had not yet found her 'voice' that she has in later books It took me a long time to finish
