Ed to its strength and entertaining ualities Rather annoying chapter openers are included here featuring Rice s husband s poetry which did not always seem to be appropriately related Rice s overly detailed and drawn out writing style is beginning to grate a bit on my nerves and it has become downright frustrating the way she skips over parts that I would Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life like to hear about while focusing on scenes to such aevel of detail that in the end seem rather inconseuential Still I did enjoy it uite a bit than I thought I would actually But I admit to
Being A Bit Less Eager To Read a bit Crazy Love less eager to read third volume in the series ueen of the Damned I enjoyed this one much than The Vampire Lestat Perhaps because there was a great deal action or perhaps because there were familiar characters from Interview with a VampireThe different voices and perspectives throughout were very interesting and I must admit that I enjoyed the others sections than the one devoted to Lestat who I fear is the center of this series It would be however impossible not reading theseast two books back to back as they flow together rather seamlessly And while I am curious as to what happens next and I do have the next book I think I need to take a bit of a break from being bogged down in Rice s tedious writing style as the sections that move slowly absolutely drag on and I don t really have the stamina for that after these three Someday I will continue but not until the memory of these books fades and my arm recovers from hefting around this omnibus Anne Rice you are the ueen of vampire stories Done with Interview with the Vampire I d read it so ong ago that I had forgotten a great deal of it which eft me with the same feeling of satisfaction you get when reading a new book And I really enjoyed it again A reminder that vampires are supposed to be these cold dead murderous creatures and not the pretty young playthings from most contemporary vampire stories Now on to the Lestat novelUpdate Done with The Vampire Lestat Not bad but I have to say it wasn t uite as satisfying as the previous book was There are a ot things going on in this story but it somehow doesn t feel as cohesive as Interview with the Vampire did I also felt that the author was somehow deviating a bit from the original concept that might have helped make the series popular but I m not sure it s made it better Not a bad book but not as good as the first one in the series I ve tried twice now to read Ann Rice books and I just can t do it Interview with a Vampire is so incredibly boring After 100 pages without rousing the slightest interest I canned it.

Honestly one of the best vampire novels I ve read in a ong time It s about time I read it to be honest Anne Rice does a great job at making us feel for even the proverbial bad guys in the book I found myself enjoying the character for even the proverbial bad guys in the book I found myself enjoying the character Armand the most Although I didn t enjoy the awkward romantic scenes between Louis and vampire child Claudia While the first one is definitely the best they all deserve 5 stars from me I ove
Anne Rice s dark mystical romantic style Great great stories Just copyingRice s dark mystical romantic style Great great stories Just copying reviews on the individual books hereI ve actually never read this before Crazy right The movie
has been stuck in my mind since ibeen stuck in my mind since I a ittle girl so it was WAY overdue that I read it I iked it In some parts it gave inside and background story compared to the movie and in some parts not I have no idea what the next books are about so I l get started on thatA very interesting read You get to see the other side of the story The first book was obviously just Louis point of view and now you get Lestat s as well as other vampires There was a part where I felt it dragged on for a bit but for the most part it was very entertaining I New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood loved the ties to mythology I m very excited to start the next one spoiler alert Ioved this one It kept me excited and emotional basically throughout the entire bookFun twist This book tells you that the past books are real The books were actually published Now Lestat has his own band and tells everyone that he s a vampireIn the beginning of the book we meet several characters that plan to go to Lestat s concert and there is a Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey lot of suspense and action All the different POVs might slow it down aittle bit but it didn t really bother me But I can see it might bother someI think the best part of the entire thing was earning the history of the mysterious ancients I really thought Akasha and Enkil were positive things I was wrong Akasha angers me a ot towards the end I m happy she s dead Lestat s POV ater in the book isn t very exciting thoughI m going to give the movie a shot just because I m curious about how they made it I KNOW I m going to complain but oh wellReview of the movie on my blog A classic trilogy Interview with the Vampire is its own beast while the other two go hand to hand as Lestat s answer to Louis chronicle While Interview with the Vampire is the better known of all the Vampire Chronicles and the story is very good Louis bleak and whiny vision of the world drags down the reading experience Lestat on the other hand enhances his own story making it a very fun read Best of the three would be the ast one The ueen of the Damned. The ornate casket ike packaging and neogothic graphic design of this immortal trilogy is eerily enticing on its own But just ift the The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs lid slide the first tape from its ghostly sleeve and you'll soon embrace the hypnotic realm of the undeadBook 1 Interview with the Vampire opens with the seductive purr of F Murray Abraham Amadeus stating I was a 25 year old man when I became a vampire and the year was 1791 And so our ultimate antihero Louis begins the elaborate retelling of hisong tortured ife as a vampire Winding through the ages from New Orleans to Paris we follow Louis and his undying mentor Lestat as they feed on humans whet their carnal appetites and.
