Publisher's Summary

Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force - a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write.

©1976 Anne Rice (P)2011 Random House Audio

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)

    "Awesome every time !"

    I've read all of Anne Rice's books numerous times in the past twenty five years. I really enjoyed the audio version. It was almost like a brand new story. I definitely recommend it!

    Story
    "The Battle Of Good Vs. Evil Within Man"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Interview with the Vampire to be better than the print version?

    Simon Vance is a wonderful narrator. Kudos to him for keeping up an accent the entire novel. I wouldn't consider audio to be better than print, but looking at the audio as a stand alone, this is one of the best. High quality, wonderful narrator, and a modern classic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Interview with the Vampire?

    The love Louis has for Claudia really stands out to me. The story takes us beyond the limitations of human society into the dark mindset of the vampires, which is a constant struggle between their predatory instincts and their humanity. As my title stated, a modern struggle between good and evil. Louis narrates his fall from humanity as the book progresses. First they try and attack the evil without (as Lestat) and then realize that the nature they struggle with is within.


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

    I have some of his other narrations waiting for me to listen to them and they will be near the top of my list. His voice is wonderful. One of the best audiobook narrators out there. He creates an immersive mood and atmosphere and narrates clearly with such a rich, deep voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    What really struck me in this book were the parts about Claudia not being able to experience her full adulthood. These were the most horrifying and touching to me.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has it's engrossing moments, but it does get slow at times. Louis becomes so stuck in his own thoughts and it kind of rambles on. I do believe having an audiobook at moments like these can really save a book.

    "Simon Vance is fantastic"

    The performance of this audiobook was mesmerizing. I truly enjoyed listening to it. There were some playback issues, but I am unsure as to whether that was due to the quality or my device. I would definitely lieten to this again.

    Story
    "Gothic romance novel"

    Great read/listen. I want aware this was romance novel-esque. The romantic moments (main character's never ending search for love), although not necessarily sexual, we're boring and made me feel less interested in the story, but we're somewhat short lived moments through out the book.
    Simon Vance seems to be incapable of pronouncing the "z" sound in words like "words" - easily overlooked, but annoying at times.
