My Thoughts

 

I should say upfront that I've already seen the movie for this, although it's been awhile.  The movie intrigued me, so I added the audiobook to my reading list afterward. 

 

Ultimately, it took me awhile to listen to this, it took a reading challenge for me actually do so.  The book was like the movie, but more in depth, with some additional scenes that were left out of the movie. (I think) The book is always better, of course.  But…because of the movie, I could really picture what these vampires looked like and acted like. 

 

I would definitely recommend the Audiobook over the actual book because I think the actual reading of this could become overly tedious.  That is one of the best things about Audio for me.  The narrator does an excellent job of bringing this to life.

 

Sex Factor:  None, not really the direction this book takes.
