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)

    "Spellbinding"

    The narrator brings this classic alive. At times it was so real, I caught myself crouching down, looking from side to side out of fear. Much better than the movie.

    "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.

    Story
    "I am really in a book rut"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, it is an interesting book, but I wish it was faster paced.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is a unique format.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Simon Vance’s performances?

    No! He makes good book very dry and boring.


    Was Interview with the Vampire worth the listening time?

    No, because I couldn't finish it. It was just to slow and boring.


    Any additional comments?

    This could be one of the most amazing books ever, but instead it just seemed like one vampire bitching and moaning about another vampire. I was very disappointed.

    "Boring!!!"

    This moved soooo slowly and the narrator is extremely monotone. I constantly had to "rewind" to listen again because it couldn't hold my attention.
