Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Filled in the gaps.
Edited it as it did drag on in parts.
He is OK, but he sounds too old for Lestat.
Tom Cruise perhaps?
OK book but not as fascinating as Interview with the Vampire.
It was different and kind of enthralling. This is fantasy to me that I have to accept as completely alien and fictional. The characters are interesting and sympathetic, though. Rice has a way with words. The story moves along nicely without getting too bogged down in exhaustive descriptions. She still paints a clear enough picture. It's helpful to get more of the larger back story, too. To bad the whole series is not on Audible.
Right about in the middle. Good narration-good story, good listen. Really enjoyed it a lot.
After listening to Interview with a Vampire and finding it very slow and only slightly interesting, I was hesitant to listen to this second addition to the series. I think it starts of slow as did Interview with a Vampire, but I've found that it becomes quite compelling about 2 hours in. If you can get through the first little bit, I think you will find yourself as fascinated as I am with the main character, even allowing him to redeem himself after his less than appealing portrayal in the first book.
When a vampire who has never been laid, and who only has meaningful relationships with men, decides to make his mother into a vampire so he can be with her forever, that's when I have to shut the iPod off. And I did.
I'm not homophobic. I'm just allergic to cliche. Sorry. Sue me.
Beautifully written but so incredibly boring that I don't think I am going to finish it. I am on part three but I don't think I can really take any more. It's a tragedy that nothing at all really happens because Anne Rice is a beautiful writer.
Seriously I was bored to tears with this book.
Ive listened on both my Ipod and ipod audible app and both have a lot of popping skipping and poor audio quality
Maybe a different narrarotor
Not made the book so long that you had to suffer that long
I couldn't tell you because I couldn't get into the book that much to know the characters
I must disclose that Interview With the Vampire is among my favorite novels. I love the character Lestat and I thought this book provided an interesting look into his life, as well as some information about Louie that you would not expect. It reminded me of my days studying literature and learning that you cannot necessarily trust the narrator.
It all went to pot when it begins to turn so evil that I could no longer listen to it. If you are wondering what I mean by this, remember that I do love Interview and I am a huge fan of creepy works but I cannot tolerate repeated chanting of "satan" and other such ridiculous happenings within this novel. Most who are familiar with Anne Rice are aware that she was previously Atheist, turned Christian, turned Humanist. I am sure her search and journey contributed to the anti-Christian and wholely demonic aspects of this book and I wish I had known prior to supporting it. The least I can do is warn those who do not wish to support this or be exposed to it.
yes, it is a good continuation of the story and to learn about Lestat and a prequel to Queen of the Damned.
yes, Still liked Tom Cruise for Lestat, he did a great job!
