Here is the link to a review I found in the New York Times about one of the newer additions to the best seller list that I found really informative and helpful. I'm still debating on whether I should give it a try because I'm not quite on the vampire bandwagon with everyone else, but it sounds like it deals with some deeper issues and in a more creative way than other novels. This writer has a strong literary background, so I'd expect and the reviews says the writing is better than in most. Please let me know what you think and I hope this helps! The review is clear, fairly short and to the point.
