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)

    "Wonderful, but a few skipping issues"

    This is a great audiobook and great story, but it was married by several skipping issues toward the end.

    Story
    "A gothic tale"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think Louis had to be my favorite character as Vance gave full voice to his experiences and his thoughts. You get a really strong sense of the character, and the rhythm that Vance used for Louis was close to perfect.


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

    I have listened to several other of Vance's performance (including The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and I think that Vance does an equally skilled job in both books. My one critique of Vance and his reading was that it was sometimes hard to separate the narrative from Louis' voice in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    It has been years since I saw the film, and the book varied enough from the film that it felt like I was discovering this world for the first time. Rice, I believe, helped to begin the contemporary fascination with vampires. If you enjoy vampire fiction, this would be a good place to begin reading.

    "movies ugh"

    Unfortunately I saw the movie before listening to this. The movie followed really close to the book. However Hollywood being what it is, they can really blacken your minds eye. Great listen otherwise.

    "Just okay"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I absolutely love the movie and have always wanted to read the book. I am glad I finally got to read the book, though I have to say it was not as good as the movie.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was a fun ending! Had a little bit of surprise and mystery.


    Was Interview with the Vampire worth the listening time?

    It felt like a waste of time a lot of times because Anne Rice really likes to be descriptive of the characters' feelings and I just wanted to hear about the story and the action.


    Any additional comments?

    I really wanted to love this book but was sadly disappointed to find out that it's really just okay in my opinion. I got bored a lot and found myself saying, "Just to get to the point already!"

    "Always spellbinding"

    At first I wasn't sure about the narrator, but soon I found myself deeply engrossed in, what has always been, a captivating novel.

    Story
    "Well, I finally got through this one,"

    The story of a whiney person beset on all sides by his own crummy decisions and a bunch of toxic people who also make crummy decisions. No likeable characters, although I really enjoyed Claudia. Her feelings rang very true to me.
    But at least the writing was good.

    "Struggled to finish."

    Although a fan of the movie, I struggled with the audio book. It dragged on. I am a fan of other works by Anne Rice, but this one did not leave me wanting to hear more or excite me to return to.
