I just picked it up again today after setting it down and forgetting, as I do. I'm like a page away from part 2 and still enraptured but, I do like to swim in melancholy and don't really need a particular reason.

I will say that I thoroughly enjoy how she handles some of the classic vampire tropes, or the lack of in some instances, particularly the Fascination and Charm. Very subtle yet powerful.

That is super interesting. I hadn't applied the word Eu******.

The book is due next week, but I may dip back into the second section (which I did not enjoy as much as you did) (and which I confess to skimming through)

I would still choose genetic immortality or death over actual immortality though. Immortality has always kind of horrified me.

One of my favorite lines was, "Every horror has a moment when it glistens; after that, it's just sad."
