What if everything you knew about your family was a lie: What if, when the lies began to crack, beneath them lay a truth so dark and deep, yet so compelling, that it pulled you inside?Ariella Montero is seeking the true identities of her mother and father-and of herself. She's been taught literature, philosophy, science, and history, but she knows almost nothing about the real world and its complexities. Her world is one wherein ghosts and vampires commune with humans; where Edgar Allan Poe and Jack Kerouac are role models; where every time a puzzle seems solved, its last piece changes the entire picture.When the last piece is murder, Ari goes on the road in search of her mother, who disappeared at the time of her birth. The hunt nearly costs Ari her life, and, in finding her mother, she loses her father. But gradually she uncovers the secrets that have kept the family apart, and she begins to come to terms with her own unique nature and her chances for survival.Set in upstate New York, England, and the American South, The Society of S explodes stereotypes-of the homeschooled, vampires, monkeys, FBI agents, and academics. In this strange new world, vegetarianism, environmentalism, biomedical research, and the ability to disappear are options for those who drink blood and face the prospect of eternal life.A taut, character-driven literary mystery, The Society of S is the future of vampirism, told in a voice that will haunt you-and make you think.… (mere)

Bello anzi, bellissimo. Finalmente un libro di vampiri che esce dai soliti preconcetti e soprattutto dai soliti cardini fatti di castelli abbandonati e pipistrelli!
Non vedo l'ora di leggere il seguito, se ci sarà. ( )

This book was very well written and makes me want to get the rest of the series. ( )

Listened to this on CD, and it held my interest more than most audiobooks. ( )

Ari lives a very sheltered life with her father, where she is home schooled and the only people she sees are the cook, and her fathers two assistants. Until the cook decides that her life is to sheltered and takes her home to meet her family. Then Ari begins making friends and having a some what normal life, aware that she is still very different. Until her best friend is murdered, then Ari's life begins to fall apart, and she decides to go searching for her mother. The fact that the characters are vampires in this book almost seems incidental, since the more important parts of the story revolve around Ari and her family and their coming together. ( )

"Just as God is the supremely good creator of good natures, so he is the most just ruler of evil wills, so that even though evil wills make an evil use of good natures, God makes a good use of evil wills." -St. Augustine, The City of God, XI, 17
"For that which was not--for that which had no form--for that which had no thought--for that which had no sentience--for that which was soulless, yet of which matter formed no portion--for all this nothingness, yet for all this immortality, the grave was still a home, and the corrosive hours, co-mates." -Edgar Allan Poe, The Colloquy of Monos and Una
"Yet a little while is the ligth with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knows not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light." -John 12:35
