Interview with the Vampire
Interview with the Vampire | Anne Rice
Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing forcea 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.The Vampire Chronicles continue in Prince Lestat. Look for a special preview in the back of the book.Praise for Interview with the Vampire A magnificent, compulsively readable thriller . . . Rice begins where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myththe education of the vampire.Chicago Tribune Unrelentingly erotic . . . sometimes beautiful, and always unforgettable.Washington Post If you surrender and go with her . . . you have surrendered to enchantment, as in a voluptuous dream.Boston Globe A chilling, thought-provoking tale, beautifully frightening, sensuous, and utterly unnerving.Hartford CourantFrom the Paperback edition.

🕯 this book is in my house since forever, I think my mom bought it in 1999 or 2000 (the price is still in Lire and not Euros) but I've never read it..

@Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

ShyBookOwl Haha ohhhh I was OBSESSED with Rice in high school. I first read this one in middle school. I've outgrown her now, but so many memories of little goth me flood back when I see her books 😅 5mo
La_Cori @ShyBookOwl I've never had a real gothic phase in my reading life, so I don't know much about this series.. in my teenage years I was reading thrillers and spy novels (and now, 20 years later I can't stand them 🤷🏻‍♀️ they make me too anxious😅) 5mo

Ruthiella I‘d be curious to hear what you make of this. I read it when I was in college and loved it and read the next two sequels right after, but I have tried other Rice books later in life and didn‘t love them. 5mo
La_Cori @Ruthiella maybe I'll try and read it.. I've never seen the movie or the tv series either, so I'll go in totally blind 5mo

annamatopoetry @thegirlwiththelibrarybag true! I found the original post, which is by user smokiedokie and is even better, because it opens with this: "I opened my copy of The Tale of the Body Thief & immediately had to close it again because of this silly little annotation" 2mo

Sensual. Spellbinding. Horrifying. Interview With The Vampire follows Louis‘ recounting of his mortal and immortal life. Struggling with the morality of being damned, Louis conveys a look into the human condition only a vampire may see. This book‘s ending left me speechless with righteous fury. 5/5 and one of the most profound works I‘ve read in a while.

Overall, I was surprised with how much I enjoyed this…I have been avoiding this since my teens as it was my sister‘s favorite book when we were in high school, which automatically made the book, and her subsequent half-assed attempt to be a gothy vampire for a year or two, lame! 😂 I see why she enjoyed this at that age, this is much too melodramatic at times. Overall though, there‘s a pretty solid story at its core 3.5/5.

A spooky reread for #scarathlon 🧛‍♂️ something I‘m finding so strange about entering my late twenties is there being adult books I read as a teen that I realise I have almost no memory of now. I think i read this when I was 13 in my first gothic romance no one understands me phase (some would argue I‘m still there…). I realised rereading it that Claudia was literally the only thing I remembered so it felt very fresh. #skeletoncrew

I finished the first season of Interview with the Vampire and I'm not sure how I feel. I loved the updates to the story: the timeline, the costumes, Louis and Lestat's relationship, and the graphics. I'm a little torn about Claudia and how the season ended. However, will I watch the second? Yes.

I don't have AMC so I was very excited to see Interview with the Vampire (along with other shows) added to Max. I just saw the first episode and loved it! My teenage obsession with Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles came back and I could not stop commenting throughout the first episode. Yes, Louis's story is very different from the book, but it goes well with the setting.

From Urban Dictionary. Envie:
“Noun: a desire or craving, esp. for food
A term used primarily in the South (especially in southeast Louisiana), to describe an extreme desire or craving for something, usually a specific type of food.“
As in, I have had a craving for beignet & chicory coffee from Cafe Du Monde ever since visiting years ago!

KittenColossus I, too, have random cravings for Cafe Du Monde. 1y
Lauranahe When my 18 yr old was 3, we went down to Baton Rouge (I had a French Teacher‘s conference). The day we came home, we had breakfast at cafe du monde. She ate so many beignets! So many that after, she threw them all up. In the car. When it was raining. 1y

This is a quiet, melancholy vampire story and so descriptive! You can close your eyes and just visualize ALL the details. I‘m glad I finally got around to this one and it was delightful on audio. I didn‘t realize it was written in the 70‘s and that it is the first in a series. I‘ll probably pick up the next at some point.

I love The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, and I don‘t think anything could ever change that. However, reading this book again as an adult has given me a wildly different perspective on the characters. I hadn‘t read this since I was a teenager and I felt I got much more out of it this go around. Rice‘s vampires are truly the saddest vampires I‘ve ever read about. I‘m looking forward to continuing with my reread of the series after October⬇️

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I told my husband I had a feeling I wouldn‘t be able to stop after this one. 😅

I'm a little bit confused. I had expected more. I had to torture myself a bit through the book. The story is very realistic. It's a fine line between an interview, a report and a fictional story, maybe that's why it's so special.

I‘m sorry, but I found this book so boring. I like Simon Vance as a narrator (I forgot what I‘ve listened to him read). But this was a snooze fest for me. Give me a silly Sookie Stackhouse or Vampire Diaries novel any day. I sped this up to 2.2x to get through it.

This just didn't work for me... the writing was overly flowery and nothing happened, I didn't like any of the characters. I'm glad I finally read it because its one that people are always surprised when I say i haven't... but I won't feel compelled to continue the series. #scarathlon #teammonstermash @StayCurious

IuliaC I understand why this book is not very appealing anymore today. I've read it about 25 years ago and at that time it was quite an original drama for its genre 2y
