"Who was she?" That was the first thought that came into my mind when I saw her in the bookstore.Who was she really?She's Belinda. She's sixteen years old. She's the object of one man's ultimate fantasy. And she's one of the most "uniquely sensual and provocative" heroines to emerge from the "fearless" imagination of New York Times bestselling author Anne Rice."Call her the It Girl of contemporary fiction. Whatever the venue, she's never too squeamish to reach out and touch it."-Rolling Stone"Her voluptuous prose draws readers into an erotic landscape where the sensual delights are dark-edged...and utterly compelling."-Village Voice"A wry and richly textured diary of 'forbidden love.' A compelling blend of mystery and romance."-Kirkus Reviews"Easily one of the most natural storytellers on the modern scene... Belinda is certainly her most controversial to date."-San Francisco Chronicle
  • I must admit that although I'm a die hard Anne fan, I didn't want to like this book on the basis of the subject matter alone. Now that I've read it from cover to cover, I have to give it 5 stars. Anne always keeps me rivited. The disgruntled childrens book author, the seductive runaway with the mysterious past, the culmination of two lives interrupted and interrupted threads... It kept me reading until I finished it. Though one is tempted to judge Jeremy Walker, he is not the evil man that I picture when I think of a 40 something indulging in this type of behavior with a minor. Belinda is not your typical runaway. Tragic and broken herself, she is desperate for rescue and it comes in the form of Jeremy, a man who is stagnating in his house of memories. She opens doors for him, lets light into his darkness and he in turn liberates her. Overall, I found this book to be as well-written as all of her works. The use of image and intense description of the host of unique and quirky characters that surround the two lovers lends to the interest of the novel. I found something enduring about each one of them. Though the plot seemed to be tied up in a neat little bow at the end, (rather unbelievable that no charges were ever filed against Jeremy) I still found it engaging and was unable to put it down. Kudos Anne! You never let us down!

  • Call me a hopeless romantic but I think this love story about a precocious sixteen year old child and a forty something author of children's books is....... well moving. Of course being on the plus side of middle age may be part of the reason.

    Yes Belinda is beautiful and young and exciting and young and charming and young and shapely and did I mention young. Jeremy Walker is a famous, middle age author of children's books and a painter, who illustrates his own books. But after he runs into Belinda he can't write anything. All he can do is work on paintings of Belinda. He is in fact obsessed with painting her without clothes.

    The book starts with Jeremy observing Belinda at a book signing in a San Francisco book store and he is smitten. He has to meet her so he asks her to a publisher's party afterward. She not only accompanies him but she seduces him at the party. No doubt about it, he is a fish on the hook, trashing around on the deck. On the other hand Belinda is both secretive, uninhibited and affectionate. Eventually Belinda agrees to move in with Jeremy.

    Understandably, Jeremy is very curious about Belinda's past and her family but Belinda will not discuss it. In fact, she issues an ultimatum that she will leave for good if he keeps questioning her. Jeremy keeps painting her in various nude poses and tells Belinda not to worry, no one will ever see them. Like Belinda is worried. She thinks he ought to have an exhibition.

    Jeremy is not about to stop inquiring about Belinda. He's just going to be more discreet about it, so he tells his good friend and Attorney Dan the story and asks him to surreptitiously make inquiries. Dan is incredulous and tells Jeremy what he already knows. That if his affair became public, he would at least be finished as a writer of children's or any other kind of books and maybe even serve time for statuary rape, where he would get to experience forcible rape firsthand. He also queries another good friend, Alex, a famous movie star.

    Little by little a picture emerges about Belinda and people are indeed looking for Belinda and the more he finds out about them, the more they find out about him, whereas this involved story gets even more involved.

    CONCLUSION

    Is Belinda pornographic? No, it really is a love story. Really! Ok, so it has some erotic sequences and I suppose it resembles an old man's fantasy where a rich older man takes up with a beautiful young girl but it's also real life where rich older men divorce their long time wives for young blood trophy wives. It's not exactly uncommon.

    Jeremy seems to have a childish innocence about him, while Belinda is worldly beyond her years. Jeremy is a bachelor, who happens to be a nice man and Belinda sincerely likes him for it. She has had plenty of duplicity and uncaring in her childhood and she is ready for stability.

    Belinda is four hundred fifty-two pages long and was well written as any of you familiar with Anne Rice/Rampling might expect. While some of her writing tends to be morbid or even bloody, there was none of that in Belinda. The sexuality that appears was in keeping with the theme of the story and tastefully done. This novel was told in three longer parts and the final shorter part. While the writing was flowing, the story was not too wordy. Descriptions were kept to a minimum and used only to enhance the story. I found Belinda to be a quick compelling read that I enjoyed and no problem recommending, especially for men on the plus side of forty

  • I was hesitant to read this novel, because I loved every one of Anne Rice's novels before reading this, and the subject matter was a little shocking. So, I waited to read this book, because I was unsure, but I am sorry I wasted time reading such an outstanding book!

    The story centers on a 44 year old illustrator, and how he falls in love/obsession with a sixteen year old female. Belinda is like no one he had ever met before. Quickly she bewitches him, and all he wants to do is be with her and paint.

    There is really so much more to this novel, and I would like to go through the entire story, but I think it's best for the reader to find things out for themselves.

    Honestly this is a great novel, fun to read, and there are so many twists to this novel that the reader will not see them coming!

    Anne Rice is a genius, and if this novel wouldn't have been written by her, I wouldn't have read it. BUT! It is a great read, and I'm glad I read it!

  • I did not like this book at first, I think because it was so different than other Anne Rice novels that I have read. But it grew on me. The characters were very interesting people. Really moral people in a kind, caring way. But some of their actions were disturbing to me. Great dynamic and challenging. Well worth the read.
