Book 4: Anne Rice's The Vampire Lestat A Graphic Novel

I didn't even know about this until I happened upon it on ebay. Oh its good! Its adapted by Faye Perozich and painted by Daerick Gross. It took me a little while to read because I kept having to stop and admire the beautiful artwork. Although Lestat looks more like Rutger Hauer here than the youthful Stuart Townsend but it kept to the original piece very well in my opinion. And it did make me want to adapt everything I've ever read into comic book format for a while... Which I may do one of these days if I was a way better artist anyhoo hehe.

"The story begins in our time with Lestat, tall, blond, and handsome, a world-renowned rock star. His gifts are timeless, his youth never withers. But he was not always the powerful and famous child of darkness. Before his long earth-encrusted sleep, he as an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-Revolutionary France. It was then that he came face to face with the incarnation of evil and the temptations of love that he has ravenously pursued through time. Where it has led him and what he has become is the heart of the tale that has captivated millions of readers".

Book 5: Finding Lost (Season 1 & 2)- Nikki Stafford

The first thing I have to say is Wow! I mean I like to think that I look beyond the obvious within the show but compared to Nikki Stafford I may as well be watching with my eyes shut.

Some of the things that she does bring to my attention make me wonder if the producers/ writers on the show are going to all this trouble to find out about all the biblical references and the I Ching just to mess with the viewer with the potential links that connect them or are they just super lucky and we the viewer are trying too hard to find hidden meanings ( a bit like how Nostradamus is vague but we can link it to stuff that's already taken place) and to make it more complex than we should. My bets on the first choice. Plus with the 6th and final season under way its nice to know there's a collection of unofficial guides out there to walk me through it all.

Especially when the two questions that niggle at me is

1. Why was Libbly in the mental asylum when Hurley was?


2. When Locke is on the phone to the dial a date Helen in season 1, is it the same Helen that he was engaged to and then lost? Is it the only way he can contact her now?

I know they are super profound and as I've been watching the 6th season I have a feeling that these deep questions are too menial to be answered...oh well.

Plus I don't need to ask the profound questions when I can go here and Jen is wonderful enough to write a very thorough review of each episode and because I'm in the UK I can read it before watching it so I know what I'm looking for even before I get there...Thanks Jen!!
