    One thought on “Lost Souls

    1. viola

      i haven't reread this since i've become an adult, and i've got the distinct feeling that doing so would just ruin it. so i likely never will.but i'll always remember it as my firm favourite for all of high school. we almost got suspended together once. because my teachers couldn't tell the difference between fiction and nonfiction, even if i could read it if you happen to be fifteen. otherwise i imagine it's a little too much. or read it if you're not fifteen and still in love with vampires and [...]

      5 Would She Even Recognize Me Stars I think it’s time I try to review this novel…. This will likely be a disaster. “I still recall the taste of your tears.Echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears.My favorite dreams of you still wash ashore.Scraping through my head 'till I don't want to sleep anymore.”Like so many young people before me, I always thought that sixteen was going to be my year. I was absolutely convinced that my life was going to irrevocably change within those 36 [...]

    3. Brendan Detzner

      A crazy, almost plotless explosion of violence, wanderlust, and sexual energy, written when the author was nineteen and possibly a little nuts. A mixture of vampires and rootless young people roam around the south, meet up, split up, meet up again, kill each other, have sex, kill each other while having sex, get lonely, do drugs, and so on. She now mostly disowns it, which only makes it more fun to read as far as I'm concerned. Kind of like reading somebody's diary, or seeing their dreams. If yo [...]

      Buddy read with the lovely Sh3lly and lovely Kristin on May 9.__________________________________I think I might be ready to review this book. I'm up for a personal review I think.My human bestie counts this book as her favorite, so when I saw it on sale for $2 on a visit to 2nd & Charles, I snagged it.Because it is my human bestie's favorite book, she and I have had many conversations about why. What it is about this particular book that is so important to her and why she always looks back o [...]

      I totally crapped out on this buddy read. Sorry guys! This one is just not working for me. I might try it again in the future. The writing and pacing is weird and it's, okay, I find it pretty boring, to be honest. I didn't even make it to the controversial part(s). 13%. Sigh. Buddy read with Jess of the Blood Soaked Rainbows and hopefully Kristin of the Luminescent Death on May 9, 2016. I have been wanting to read this forever!

      I have the feeling I simply discovered Brite too lateHad I been 13 when I read this (and a bisexual, alcoholic orphan), I might have connected with it in ways that my 22-year-old self just wasn't ableBut I hope not. It's one thing for genre fiction writers to develop a formula for writing their books (we see this all the time, not just in horror, but--a fortiori--in mysteries and thrillers), but Poppy seems to have developed a formula for writing chapters, even pages. All driving must take place [...]

      This book has haunted my waking hours since the first time I read it as a troubled teen. I needed someone to relate to in those days, I needed to know that I was not alone in this crazy, fucked-up world, and then I met Nothing. I traveled with him on his journey, meeting Zillah - a perfect, deadly, damnable, heartbreaking, irresistible bastard - and fell as much in love with him as Nothing did, living vicariously through him as he drank blood, smoked opium, and savored the taste of home on Zilla [...]

    8. Cazzie

      This was the third time I read this book, and the third time I developed an overwelming desire to move to New Orleans (pre-Katrina obviously) in order to spend the rest of my days drinking absinthe and stumbling around the French Quarter in search of all the wonderfully sensual alluring vampires of both Anne Rice and Poppy Z. Brite's novels. Of course I didn't do that, but the mental image conjoured up by this novel couldn't be a stronger draw. It is the first of PzB's novels to feature the love [...]

      Everywhere you go these days, you can’t help but hear all the kids talking about Twilight: about how the vampires are so groundbreaking, how they can walk about during the day, about how their fangs don’t show until they need them, how the angst of these teen vampires just speaks to them. Now, I haven’t read Twilight, but I do have a few acquaintances (significantly younger than I) who can not get their fill of the brooding teen bloodsuckers, and I’ve heard more than my fill of the plots [...]

    10. Kristin

      I'm sorry my lovely vampire ninja, I tried, I really did. I loved Ghost, felt for Steve, but the the rest, the rest were either boring, crazy, or flat. Overall, I kept getting bored and skeeved out. I'm a pansy :/ But incest, just no. I honestly didn't think I would make it after (view spoiler)[Wallace described thrusting up into his daughter (hide spoiler)] or even after the Albino. But it is more than that, I didn't feel that there was any point to the gross and gory parts other than for shock [...]

      Stephen King endorsed the entire Dell Abyss Horror line. Here is his blurb: "Thank you for introducing me to the remarkable line of novels currently being issued under Dell's Abyss imprint. I have given a great many blurbs over the last twelve years or so, but this one marks two firsts: first unsolicited blurb (I called you) and the first time I have blurbed a whole line of books. In terms of quality, production, and plain old story-telling reliability (that's the bottom line, isn't it), Dell's [...]

    12. Wealhtheow

      If you're going through puberty and feeling weird, this is a great book to read. With enough vampires, gay sex, incest and goth clubbing to satisfy any young misunderstood oddball (and truthfully, I have never been in a single goth club that played "Bela Lugosi's Dead" even once, let alone every night), this is a fun piece of wish-fulfillment. Dark, twisted, unbelieavable and not particularly sophisticated, I'd recommend this to anyone wearing Crow makeup in a rural town in the midwest.

    13. Heather *Awkward Queen and Unicorn Twin*

      The other day I had to drive somewhere and my iPod was dead. At first this was annoying. Then I was like, "I'm reading LOST SOULS. I'll just listen to my goth mix!" So I put in my Gotharama Pt. 2 mix (Pt. 1 got lost) and wouldn't you know it, the first song on there was by Bauhaus. But it wasn't "Bela Lugosi's Dead," it was "She's in Parties." And there were a lot of other quality goth bands on the CD and no more Bauhaus.My point is Brite mentions Bauhaus a lot in this book. And I do love them. [...]

    14. Bark

      I brought this book with me on vacation, along with 6 others (what can I say, I'm finicky). After putting one book aside out of complete boredom I feared nothing would hold my attention. I ended up plowing my way through 280 pages of Lost Souls before I knew it. Being that its been nearly 12 years since I originally read it, I wasn't surprised to realize that only vague images and memories of lush prose had stuck with me and that I had forgotten all about the basic plot line. I figured jaded me [...]

    15. Anthony Vacca

      A gothic tale of black leather pants, angst, booze, DIY shows, dive bars, incest, bloodsucking and pedophilia, Brite's debut novel is a charming display of decadence in grungy excess. Nearly every page is wrought with sensual descriptions of booze, blood, food, flesh, boy love and the music of Bauhaus, as Brite's cast prowls for spiritual and physical satiation in the American South. Centered around several road trips to New Orleans, the conflict that eventually emerges is between an (unsigned) [...]

      Fifteen-year-old Nothing runs away from his adoptive home and falls in with three vampires, one of whom is his unwitting father. In a haze of drugs, sex, and blood drinking, Nothing is drawn closer to New Orleans and the climactic events that will reveal his past and determine his future. Lost Souls is indulgent and gratuitous to the extreme, which will either delight or disgust the reader. Personally, I loved it—and though I preferred the concept to the actual plot, I found Lost Souls visceral [...]

    17. Andrea Poulain

      cuevadelescritor/2La música de los vampiros es un libro crudo, crudísimo, no apto para personas sensibles. De hecho, puede que ni siquiera hayan nombrar a su autora; debido a sus temas recurrentes es bastante desconocida y queda relegada a cierto grupo de personas interesadas.Lo he dicho, y lo repito: este libro no es apto para personas sensibles, no muchos la pueden disfrutar (y hablamos sólo de disfrutar, ya no de entender). Su obra está llena de muertes, de violaciones de destrucción. De [...]

    18. Max

      Oh boy! Lost Souls & I go way back to 2004 when i was only 14. I was exactly like Nothing, the protagonist of the story; lost, goth and "pale" (Just a heads up! You'll be seeing that word so many times!), rebellious, bored and oh so very angsty! I loved this book, i loved the semen, i loved the gothic girl in the bar, loved the purple glasses, the velvet clothes, the incest, the love, the rock'n'roll, the chocoalteness in Molochai, the chartreuse as green as limes (oh who can forget!) and th [...]

    19. Fenriz Angelo

      It is very dark i guess I'd have loved it if i were the 12yo goth kid i used to be. I like that the queerness of the characters is not a big deal. The characters are good but at times they feel flat, especially the vampires, I like them but some times i thought they were cartoonized, it's just the fact that they have lived hundred of years and they always have a night of party sex and rock n' roll. I mean that must be boring after so long right?.There's some pretty fucked up shit here, like ince [...]

    20. Ithlilian

      This book is certainly dark, which is usually a good thing, but it did nothing for this book at all. There's a boy named Nothing that has sex with any and all of his friends and does drugs. Also, an abuser character that beats up his woman, a psychic boring character named Ghost, and 3 vampires that aren't very interesting. People do drugs, kill each other, kill their best friends, sleep with their fathers, some people get pregnant, some run away from homeyawn. If this book is supposed to be int [...]

    21. Bryndís

      crazy ride. sometimes a little too crazy. But how great to finally read about non sweet vampires!Ending was weak

    22. Jax Goss

      It was a very weird experience rereading this book. The first time I read it, I was about 21, and visiting my friend Tash in Grahamstown because I had finished my degree but hadn't figured out what to do with my life. So I went "home" to work it out. I was lost, I was overly dramatic. I was totally seduced by Brite's nihilistic characters. But now I'm 36, I have a child and a life and some much more grown up sensibilities (though I don't feel like a grown up really), and it reads totally differe [...]

      I received this audiobook for review from Crossroad Press through Audiobook Jukebox's Solid Gold Reviewer Program. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own. I love vampires, and I love audiobooks – so I jumped at the chance to review a vampire audiobook! It was not at all what I expected.Lost Souls is about three androgynous bisexual (although mostly homosexual) vampires: Zillah (the leader) and his two sidekicks (Molochai and Twig). They come [...]

    24. Tobin Elliott

      Twenty-five years after my first reading, I decided to dive back into this one again. I remember little about the first read other than not being that impressed and not knowing what to think about all that "gay stuff" that I read.All this time later, I like to think I'm more mature and understanding with the "gay stuff"d no, I don't call it that anymore. And this time around, I was impressed with what I read.For the sake of clarity, though I know Poppy Z. Brite, female at the time of the release [...]

    25. Zachary Hanes

      Young Poppy Z. Brite truly outdid herself with this book. Though currently shunned by herself to this day, I find inspiration within it. Where else could I go to read about my favorite bands? Bauhaus, The Cramps, Cocteau Twins, The Cure, all of which play a huge role in who I am. This story is told through several characters throughout the story whose path's coincidentally cross several times. In fact, the whole story is one big coincidence. We follow an inspirational band, three party going vam [...]

    26. Madeline Knight-Dixon

      There’s a reason that most of the best vampire novels are not part of the mass media; because they’re dark, fucked up, and would make most people cringe. That’s how this book is. If you like things like Twilight or The Vampire Diaries (I’ll say softer vampires, not that there’s anything wrong with them) I wouldn’t recommend it. If however you like things like Dracula, True Blood, or Anne Rice, you will be obsessed with this book.It practically drips with sensuality, but the kind of s [...]

      Dans son au coeur de la Nouvelle-Orléans, Christian, créature mystérieuse et centenaire, reçoit la visite d’une adolescente étrange. Jessy, passionnée par les vampires, désire plus que tout être “mordue” par l’un d’eux pour devenir des leurs. Trois autres êtres les croiseront, vampires aux moeurs moindres qui n’hésiteront pas, au contraire de Christian, à se servir de Jessy pour assouvir leurs désirs. Jessy sortira de cette nuit vivante, mais portant en son sein une créa [...]

    28. Coralie

      2 stars for the novel + a whole star for Ghost.I didn't love everything about the book and I have mixed feelings about some parts of it, there are some unnecessary scenes in it in my opinion, or unnecessarily revolting ones (for instance, without really spoiling anything, the novel could have done without that scene between Jessy and her father). The back cover of my copy says "sex, blood and rock'n'roll", add a lot of alcohol (almost always Chartreuse though) and grime to the cocktail, well, th [...]
