Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force-a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write.

Synopsis:

We are in a small room with the vampire, face to face, as he speaks--as he pours out the hypnotic, shocking, moving, and erotically charged confessions of his first two hundred years as one of the living dead.

This is the most epic book i have ever read! It's filled with passion, and yet filled with a gothic gloom of seeing through a vampire's eyes.

I've always wanted to read a gothic, truly vampire story, and I've always heard Anne Rice was the one who made those books possible. I never really thought that I would find her book "Interview with the Vampire" at my school library, but when I did I was estatic. I devored and finished the book in a day and a half and I now know what a real vampire story is. Anne Rice crafted a masterpiece when she wrote this book. I highly reccomend you read it!

Louis is a 200 year old vampire. He has lived many lives, known many people and other vampires, struggled with balancing his remaining human thoughts and tendencies with the necessities of vampiric life and seen history being made. Now he is going to share his story with the world.

I have to admit to being disappointed with this book. It is not that the plot or characters are poorly crafted, indeed, they are quite interesting. However I had a strong dislike for the writing in this book. It was extremely melodramatic and Rice clearly had an absurd love of wordy, overused, cliche terms and descriptions. When there were not enough ridiculous, but well known, terms already in the English language, she seemingly spliced them together, resulting in some completely foolish words when used as descriptions for vampires. (When Louis called himself a "supermortal" I groaned aloud and hit myself in the forehead with this book. Luckily it's not very large, so no harm was done.)

Having read Lestat, which is not a masterpiece but not bad either, I guess you can tell what an advantage 10 years of practice gives. I recommend those interested in Anne Rice's works skip this one and just start with Lestat. You don't need the torture.
