What the Critics Say

“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 myth–the 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)

    "LOUIS, THE FIRST BELOVED VAMPIRE EVER!"

    Who doesn't remember the first Vampire to be beloved for his tortured soul? His child vampire Claudia, the first ever child vampire in historical novels? Louis and his search for his lost soul gave us such a different look at the genre and this story was the reawakening of the love for "blood sucking vamps" that we had almost lost by the time Anne Rice wrote this. We were used to Christopher Lee and his brand of aloof and silent monster movies so when we fell in LOVE with Louis it was a whole new beginning for the genre of Vampires. Anne Rice became our Goddess of the Vampire stories, she introduced us to Louis and Claudia and Lestat and then went beyond to capture our hearts with more and more....this one is only the beginning. Expect to fall in love with the voice and the story all over again. Excellent narration too!

    "Yawn....."

    I was so excited to get this but unfortunatly just can't stay awake to finish it. Since I listen to my books in the car this can be a real problem. I don't know if it's the story or the narrator's voice but it puts me right to sleep. Great buy if you have isomnia!

    "Enough of Anne Rice"

    I gave this book two stars because it's well written. This I can appreciate. I keep thinking that there must be something else to make it worthy of recommendation, but nothing has come to mind. I don't object to vampire, supernatural, or sci/fi themes. I enjoyed all of Stephanie Meyer's books, including The Host, as well as Deborah Harkness's A Discovery of Witches. If you are looking for suspense, depth, humor, humanity, and a glimmer of light somewhere in the darkness, take your pick of these. If you prefer page after page of grisly violence and unrelenting despair, then spend your money on Interview with a Vampire.

    "Long time coming but worth waiting for Simon Vance"

    We had to wait till "The Girl Who...." was wrapped up in narration by Simon Vance, master reader... so perfect that now we get to hear the story we have relished, the story Anne Rice would not write again today, an now Vance unwraps the present of this gift already leaked out, no turning back and so perfect the writing and so perfect the voice to go with it! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So well these words came from the ink, so well it falls from the tongue, so well it enters our ears and imagination again. Of coarse it is worth the buy. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Now, go read modern Jungian analysts on how they frame the story of all of this "Vampire" craze after Rice tipped the first big domino.... and see why it is we are so captivated by the subject of the reality of every day vampires throughout our culture and even in ourselves. So dark, let's get lost and find ourselves and illumine and see through this archetype about us.

    "Not My..."

    Not My Louis, Not My Lestat. I Love this book; I love everything that Anne Rice has written, but the reader of this book is not who I would have chosen.

    "Great read!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Interview with the Vampire to be better than the print version?

    Yes because i can just listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Claudia.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed Simon Vances voice for these books much more than the alternative readers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    THIS is what I expect from all of Anne Rices books now!

    "heard better"

    I wanted to kill Louis myself. My God just pluck up the courage and die already. Wow the writer does a great job of making the reader feel LeStats frustration.
