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

Critic Reviews

“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)

Blown Away!

I recently finished listening to Interview with the Vampire. I was a little leery of male and female voices being done by just one narrator, but Simon did exceptionally well with both, and also was great at doing voices for all of the male characters, which I had no trouble telling them apart. I was blown away by Simon's performance with accents! I haven't listened to him as a narrator before, but heard he is one of the top narrators, and now I know why! I'm glad that I have more audiobooks in my collection narrated by him and can't wait to be impressed time and time again. I plan to listen to Interview with the Vampire at least one more time.

OK for Halloween

I always try to pick an appropriate book for Halloween to help me get into the season. I must say that I was generally disappointed with this book, though aspects were entertaining. There are too many places where the action is slow. I also found parts a little too disturbing for my tastes, though I'll admit that is a personal matter. I can tell that the book is quality, it's just not what I tend to enjoy. The highlight was Simon Vance's narration. He always does a great job.

Dracula Reads "Interview with the Vampire!"

I'd read this book in paperback years ago, so I knew what to expect from the prose. Mr. Vance seemed to be reading with an affected Bela Lugosi accent. He's British, according to his bio, so I'm fairly certain that wasn't his natural voice. Still, he gets credit for the correct pronunciation of the main character's name -- I'm currently listening to an audiobook of "Queen of the Damned," and every time the narrator pronounces "Louis" with a sibilant "S" it irks me just a little.
