Triana's grief is deep and almost boundless...
The amazing amount of history that you learn in one of Anne Rice's books is wonderful. She is a master of details that make a book and it's setting come alive. This story is great.
While I must say I am a big fan of this author I am disappointed to say that in all the thousands of books I have read this is the worst by far, not just from this author but of anything I have ever read. There is no plot. There are no characters that are enjoyable or likeable. There isn't even a storyline here to follow. No moral, no point, no anything. This is a horrible book and I strongly recommend that if your reading this, don't read the book.
The book ('Violin' by Anne Rice) is set in numerous places, including Vienna, New Orleans (which is typical of Rice's novels) and Rio de Janeiro. The novel tells the story of three people: a young woman yearning to become a musician, a ghostly violinist (hence the title), and the ghost of Beethoven.
