Ragged Angels Della Van Hise 9780976689737 Books

As children should not play with their food, writers should not play with their words.
Only the very greatest among them can successfully indulge in lengthy descriptions, longish philosophical debates, endless musings.

I am not implying Ms Van Hise cannot write. On the contrary she masters the language and has fine thoughts to express.
Unfortunately she does not strike the perfect balance needed to make the storm of words she unleashes on her reader palatable. There are some pages that convey depth of thought in a aesthetically valid form, especially in the second part, but most of the time I was just trying to sift those fine thoughts out of the endless -if finely worded- ramblings.

Obviously this is not your average M/M vampire romance full of action and sex, so readers looking for that should better avoid this work.
The author clearly wishes to explore the philosophical implications of life and death and to do that she creates formidable characters -some of them at least are such, others less so- under the vampiric disguise, but the first part of the novel is a nearly unendurable ranting I kept on reading out of sheer stubborness.
Later a modicum of action picks up but throughout the novel I was under the impression that conflicts were being reiterated to express the same thoughts again and again. The two lovers actually reenact the same quarrel using more or less the same words every now and then.

Only occasionally is a new idea added to the lot.
Language is also repetitive. Characters constantly "gather" other characters in their arms, just to make one small example.

I suppose a good editor could help the author trim the excess without impoverishing a novel which was first published in 1997 and could use an update anyway.

Ragged Angels Della Van Hise 9780976689737 Books Reviews


I'm ambivalent. The author's skill is undoutable. The content was flawed. I kept asking myself "Is this how this woman really feels?" If so, she needs a psychiatric evaluation and treatment for clinical depression. The main character is a willing victim. He allows himself to be manipulated by a master conman. This dark perspective about life
and death is only one viewpoint. Where's the evidence either way? No one really knows. All a person has is faith or their own opinion. As much as I found this story irritating I couldn't stop reading it. So I gave it 3 stars for literary skill. A reader can argue against what the story says, but an author has a right to her opinions. As does a reader.
I tried to read this book and I couldn't. I like to think I have a pretty good grasp on a strong vocabulary, and if not I love to learn new words. This book would have me stopping every other page to look up a word. A lot of m/m novels these days are to simplistic and often repeat the same words over and over again. This one is the direct opposite of those books. The book might have been good , I just had to trip over so much prose that enjoying the story was out of the question. If you want a vocabulary lesson and are not interested in the story, than this book is for you. I received this book from the lending library.
Recommended by gayromance.com, I purchased this book with high hopes. I am an AVID reader, as I'm sure the rest of you are. But, I just couldn't get into this book. The author felt like she was too focused on her belief in evolution and it seemed to center around that belief for the first 20-30 pages. All I kept reading about was that there was no heaven, hell, or God and the author just kept reiterating that in different ways. Over and over and OVER again. Yes, I did get to one partially romantic scene, then they broke it up to tell me once again that there was no God. The dedication of the book was vaguely (I deleted the book so as not to waste space on my kindle, so no EXACT quote) aimed towards the increased evolution of the immortal search... and to Wendy (my co-workers got a kick out of poor Wendy being a by-line, not important enough of a person to be BEFORE a theory and belief).
As for the book, I couldn't drag it out anymore, I got bored. It wasn't developing characters, it was describing scenery and furnishing in VIVID detail... for nearly 1 page a chair. In the end, I felt sorry that Wendy had been mentioned at all, she must live with the notoriety.

Poor Wendy, indeed.

Happy Reading to you all... and to Wendy.
Toward the end of this book one of the characters says "Words.... as a writer I should think choosing them carefully would be a priority." If only!

You are never very far away from a sloppy simile or a metaphoric misfire. Some of my favorites include the suggestion that someone be weaned "from the nipple of revenge", or the fact that to a vampyre (sic) "five years is but a couplet in the collected works of Shakespeare", and finally "someone had cracked the obsidian egg of the night and light was leaking in at the fracture".

Add in enough philosophical ramblings to cause even Plato and Aristotle to scratch their heads, and you have one of the least satisfying books I've encountered in quite some time.
