Read full description of the books Red Death:This book is considered one of the more popular in vampire lit section. However, we need to clarify one thing:
It's not about vampires. It's about Jonathan Barrett.
This book is a very slow read. There is almost no action; instead, the author leads us through the every-day life of Jonathan, following him through his life at home, studies in England and then the activities back on Long Island. The vampire part is seriously downplayed, but even though I bought the book looking mostly for vampirism, I wasn't disappointed. The descriptions, albeit long, were interesting enough for someone who hasn't had much fondness for historical fiction before. The visions of the world crafted by Elrod differed from what I expected/imagined and it was a real pleasure to learn how things worked.
As for Mr Barrett himself... I found it amusing that he was not a likable fellow, at least not for me. It was nice to observe him, but I didn't care much for his lot. That's the quirk of sitting in one's brain via first person perspective.
It took me more than two months to finish this novel solely due to lengthy descriptions and slow flow. I can recommend it to anyone interested in historical fiction who doesn't mind a bit of supernatural.
