    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
