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)

    "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!

    Story
    "Was better on the big screen...."

    I loved the movie and so it pains me to say this but had I read/listened the book first, I probably never would have watched the movie. Don’t get me wrong, this is a very good story and I loved the history aspect of it. Rice is a great writer and the narration is superb too. However, overall, I really didn’t get much out of this audiobook and feel like it was more of a waste of time than anything else. A tad disappointing from my perspective but by no means would I consider this a bad book in any way. It's just not as good as I remembered it to be.

    Story
    "movie ruined it for me i guess"
    Would you try another book from Anne Rice and/or Simon Vance?

    def. by simon vance, he's great. ill stay away from this vampire series for now.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Anne Rice? Why or why not?

    no, not for a while. at the same time i can still encourage people to the story, the way she wrote it i didn't expect.


    What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he always sounds like he's directly from the story, he's better then b. pitt as louie


    Do you think Interview with the Vampire needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    i wouldn't read it, their is a series but my expectation was different so I'm staying away.


    Any additional comments?

    50% of the book seemed like poetry from the vamps point of view, wasn't as dark or horror filled as i though it would be. lots of mellow drama but i can see why people are into it

    "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.

    "Vampire"

    I enjoyed this book very much, moved smoothly and easy to stay with the story.The narrator was easy to listen to and spoke as I would expect a Vampire to speak without being over dramatic .I would recommend it

    Story
    "intense but dragging"

    I am an avid audio book listener but I struggled to finish this story. while the oreformance is compelling the lack of releif from the constant intensity creates a monitone effect over time. towards the end I enjoyed the denumont much more than the rest of the tale for its variety. sadly I will not be listening to this again.
