Interview with the Vampire (ANNIVERSARY)
Interview with the Vampire (ANNIVERSARY) | Anne Rice
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...."Magnificent, compulsively readable."CHICAGO TRIBUNE

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 is such a beautifully written story. This is the third time I‘ve read this but I didn‘t remember it too well. I love the writing style and how detailed the descriptions are. I really need to read the rest of the series.

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 4mo

I read the book 30 years ago but didn‘t remember much. I had never seen the movie. Long hair was not a good look for Antonio Banderas & I couldn‘t really forget Lestat and Louis were Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. Beautiful settings. #scarathlon #teammonstermash 11 points

I finished the 2nd #buddyread for #TeamMonsterMash. Even though I read it some 20 years ago, it was fun revisiting the characters. Louis was still whiney, Lestat still cruel at times, Claudia vicious, and Armand just really didn't want the drama. I might continue with The Vampire Lestat, which I never read.

I did not have a chance to post a picture about my boxes sent for both of my swaps but I hope make up for with this great pic from our new Louis in the AMC tv series. The series is giving me life(and death). Who can stay mad at this face? My apologies again. I am finally up and around and packages were sent out last week. Everyone should have their packages. #nightmareswap #litsyfallswap #respiratoryinfection #spookyseason #fall #biteme

Blerdgal_Fenix @LibrarianRyan I saw one episode and was in love. It will play on AMC for free but you have to pay if you miss it. So I am going to do like I did with P-Valley, wait till the season ends pay the couple dollars to stream the whole season at once. Best $5 I spent on STARZ for 2 seasons of PVAlley. 4mo

I started this book long time ago but never finished it. It is a classic, more character driven so different from the movie. I enjoyed it because it is so good how it is described this transformation between what you were and what you have become. A constant struggling between these two beings-inside yourself. Strange/weird relationship between Claudia and Louis🤔So many deaths, are they really dead? Book 2 is waiting for me. 4⭐️

For 7 days, I read this book in the dark of night, when sleep is challenging due to chronic pain, and I miss it now that it's over. I didn't expect to enjoy this so much, but the lush imagery and the wrestling with grief that reflects Anne Rice's own (loss of a daughter Claudia's age) drew me in.

I'm rereading Interview for #Scarathlon2022 #TeamMonsterMash while I watch the new AMC+ version. It's hard to believe the book was published in 1976. I read it in college, and it was almost 20 years old then. I still love the lushness of Rice's prose. I forgot how whiney Louis seems in the book version. Lestat is still the villain I love to hate.
It's fun meeting these characters again.

I have a lot of love for this book as I read it a lot as a teenager. I enjoyed reading it again as an adult. It's very slow and in some ways not much happens but I was sucked in and loved revisiting the world and characters.

This book was one of the few books I felt I could relate to growing up because love was separate to sex. As an unknowing ace it was a revelation to have characters that loved deeply without the need for sex.
