Queen of the Damned

“Queen of the Damned” is wealth porn. I think about half the book is descriptions of wealth and opulence. Combined with the moody drama and endless gothic romanticist self-reflective melancholy – this explains the popularity of the book. It is porn for self absorbed people. It’s about having endless amounts of money and time, and being unhappy; a beautiful and seductive brand of depression. I think I just like reading the writing, but I don’t actually resonate with the contents. It is a cold and glittering work, wrapped in velvet.
