Joanne Harris first novel is nowhere near as good as her later work It s a clunky vampire novel with dual timelines Half of the novel is set in the 1950s while the other half is set in modern times However the two parts are essentially the same a manipulative and beautiful female vampire arrives in Cambridge bewitches a gullible young man and continues her killing spreeThere were some interesting elements to this novel I liked Harris particular rules for vampires I found myself really liking the modern protagonist Alice She was plucky and at least semi resourceful It was a shame that the 1950s protagonist Daniel was a bit of a wet flannel view spoiler Even after he turned into a vampire he remained pathetic hide spoiler

Read & download í eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Joanne Harris Read ¹ The Evil Seed ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB 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 Ginny Jealous Alice is repelled by Ginny – an ethereal beauty with a sinis. Split between the 1940s and a modern narrative 1980s90s The Evil Seed tells of the havoc wreaked in the lives of two sets of characters by a beautiful and ruthless nightwalker Basically a vampire although this kind doesn t conform to many of the popular myths eg being unable to venture out in daylight In 1948 Cambridge scholar Daniel Holmes rescues a girl called Rosemary from drowning he falls madly in love only for her to start a relationship with his best friend His story charting a gradual descent into obsession and madness is written as a journal In the modern narrative also set in Cambridge an artist named Alice is disconcerted when her ex boyfriend Joe asks her to offer a spare room to his strange new girlfriend the ethereal Ginny The Evil Seed was Joanne Harris s first novel reissued after her success with Chocolat etc and the author s foreword suggests she is now somewhat embarrassed by it It s easy to see why it is freuently amateurish and the style doesn t seem to have much in common with her later work although only having read two other books by Harris I m not an expert Many of the events stretch the limits of plausibility to say the least I m not talking about the vampire stuff but things like Joe expecting Alice to let Ginny stay in her house who would ever do this and Joe seeming completely unfazed at the idea that Ginny might be a heroin addict as if such a thing is no big deal The characters emotions are all over the place and they often contradict themselves several times during the course of a few pagesThat said I still enjoyed this It s atmospheric compelling and fun and although I would have preferred a subtle approach it definitely descends into horror towards the end there s enough gothic intrigue to keep it genuinely interesting I don t think I can really say that I would recommend it but I never wanted to give up on it and I don t regret reading it either I wanted it to distract me from certain things I don t want to think about at the moment and it did its job rather well
