Publisher Comments:

In another feat of hypnotic storytelling, Anne Rice continues the extraordinary Vampire Chronicles that began with the now classic Interview with the Vampire and continued with The Vampire Lestat and The Queen of the Damned.

Lestat speaks.  Vampire-hero, enchanter, seducer of mortals.  For centuries he has been a courted prince in the dark and flourishing universe of the living dead. Lestat is alone.  And suddenly all his vampire rationale--everything he has come to believe and feel safe with--is called into question. In his overwhelming need to destroy his doubts and his loneliness, Lestat embarks on the most dangerous enterprise he has undertaken in all the danger-haunted years of his long existence.

The Tale of the Body Thief is told with the unique--and mesmerizing--passion, power, color, and invention that distinguish the novels of Anne Rice.

From the Hardcover edition.

Coni, January 30, 2007 (view all comments by Coni)
The fourth in the Vampire Chronicles. This time it focuses on Lestat and his wish to be mortal again, even if it is for just a short period of time. He finds a mortal to switch bodies with for two days while he experiences mortal joys like orange juice and horrors such as getting a cold. Will the mortal be willing to give up his supernatural powers and immortality like he promised?

Oh, this book could have been shorter. It dragged the first 100 pages or so with some talk about God and the Devil. It was just so boring. Lestat is talking to his friend David, who refuses to be turned into a vampire after years and years of Lestat asking, and they talk about good and evil and blah blah blah. Once they get past that, they actually get to the plot of the story. I really didn?t think any of that furthered the main plot of the story at all. It also made me want to stop reading it.

After we get to the actual introduction of the body thief, which seriously doesn?t happen until after 100 pages. Then it is very interesting with Lestat being in a human body and then trying to get his body back. I just think the book would have been better with almost the first 100 pages gone. The very beginning should be there, leave all the good/evil talk out, and then move on!

Due to the blabbing, this would have been my least favorite out of the vampire chronicles.
