Publisher's summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Anne Rice, this sensuously written spellbinding classic remains 'the most successful vampire story since Bram Stoker's Dracula' (The Times)

In a darkened room a young man sits telling the macabre and eerie story of his life - the story of a vampire, gifted with eternal life, cursed with an exquisite craving for human blood.

When Interview with the Vampire was published, the Washington Post said it was a 'thrilling, strikingly original work of the imagination . . . sometimes horrible, sometimes beautiful, always unforgettable'. Now, more than forty years since its release, Anne Rice's masterpiece is more beloved than ever.

***The Vampire Chronicles is now a major TV show***

Left wanting more

The narrator was amazing but the store unfortunately not. Very boring at regular moments during the book.

Gripping and intimate

A study in the futility of immortality. The paradox of the desire to experience and love against the need to truly have meaning. I loved the narration and it's musical pace.
