Comments Marie Laveau

  • Chaynyth

    I really like this book. It wasn't in print for very long and copies are sometimes hard to come by, but it's worth tracking down, I think. Francine Prose takes some serious liberties (I believe) with the real Marie Laveau's life, but the novel is complex and engaging enough that I've simply filed it as "fiction, don't cite" in my mind.This is definitely adult-read only, though. The first time I tried to read it, I was 10 and I came across the three page, actually critical to the plot, very graph [...]

    Loved it so much I read it to pieces over the years. This is a book that should be reprinted because the used prices are approaching the rare book prices.

  • Tamara Mataya

    It's been QUITE a few years since I read this book, but it's come with me over the years through quite a few moves, and it is still on my shelf for a reason. I re-read this one numerous times and remember loving it a lot. (Sometimes I hesitate to re-read old favourites in case they don't hold up to the memories). Prose has written some YAs, and regardless of category or genre, she's an author whose work I'll definitely be picking up again, if only to see if my 5 star memories hold up!

    I read this now out-of-print book as a teenager seeking affirmation of the magic in her every day existence. This book certainly provided it. Marie Laveau was the celebrated/reviled quadroon voodoo priestess who ruled New Orleans' 19th century backstreets. Her psychedelic visions, passionate joie de vivre, and desire for power make her a feminine icon.

  • Louise Carlson Stowell

    Very engaging book. Out of all the books that I have read so far on Marie Laveau, as a novel, I enjoyed this one the most.The characters are very clear cut. The action starts from the beginning of the book and carries well all the way to the end. I loved it.

  • Barbara

    This is the first book I read by Francine Prose, and I loved it! I read it once in the '80s, once in the 90's, and I'm ready to read it again. The best fictional account of New Orleans Voodoo queen Marie Laveau that I've read, and I've read several.

  • Lynetta Simington

    LOVED IT!One of her first novels. It had me gripped beginning to end.

  • Michael

    A very entertaining novel about the famed voodoo queen of New Orleans

  • Janet

    The best book I've read in a long, long timeyou know, the kind where you start reading slower as you near the end so it won't be over so soon.

  • Laura

    One of my favorite books of all time. It characters have peopled my dreams and phrases and scenes have ducked in and out of my head since I read it many years ago.

  • Deborah

    I remember devouring this book, the second I'd read by Francine Prose. The setting and plot came alive for me.

  • Nina

    i read this book years ago and just remember really enjoying this fictional accounting of her life. i'd love to find it again and re-read it.

  • Karen

    Great combination of history and fiction. Great read.
