Sandton, South Africa
No, I think both complement each other. The rpint version lends itself to create an aura of what one would consider Lestat whereas the narrator of the audiobook puts his own spin on bringing the character to life for us.
No books can compare to this wonderous tale of wunderlust and everything else in between. I did see myself drawing comparisons of Lestat and his personality to characters like Duncan McLeod, the Highlander and the Crow.
He brought the tale to life.
Yes, the scene in the crypt with Akasha and Akil, and Marcus.
The violin transitions in the audiobook deserve to be toned down a bit so you can better engage your listening of the narrator and the tale. It could sometimes be very verbose and distracting.
The tales of famous African folklore was brought to life by the actors and actresses that took part in the narration. It was awesome to listen to these stories as if each and every Holloywood narrator were reading it to me and only me at bedtime.
The variety of folk tales that span the entire African continent and not just South Africa.
Alan Rickman's and Whoopi Goldberg's narration stood out for me.
Riveting, fantastical and sumptuous.
I would make a comparison on the way Rice captures the age and time of Paris, New York and the ol' South to the way Dicken describes it in his 'Tale of Two Cities'.
I think the narrator was great.
Louis, but of course. His character reveals itself in its true form throughout the book and its his emotional tale that pulls at the heart strings in this first installment in the trilogy.
