The Tale of the Body Thief

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Anne Rice

Narrated By: Simon Vance

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: July 2015

Duration: 18 hours 3 minutes


In another feat of hypnotic storytelling, Anne Rice continues the extraordinary Vampire Chronicles that began with the now classic Interview with the Vampire and continued with The Vampire Lestat and The Queen of the Damned.

Lestat speaks.  Vampire-hero, enchanter, seducer of mortals.  For centuries he has been a courted prince in the dark and flourishing universe of the living dead. Lestat is alone.  And suddenly all his vampire rationale--everything he has come to believe and feel safe with--is called into question. In his overwhelming need to destroy his doubts and his loneliness, Lestat embarks on the most dangerous enterprise he has undertaken in all the danger-haunted years of his long existence.

The Tale of the Body Thief is told with the unique--and mesmerizing--passion, power, color, and invention that distinguish the novels of Anne Rice.

    This was my least favorite of the Vampire Chronicles series so far. I did not like that it was an abridged version, but I could not find an unabridged version. I felt like I could really tell when parts were cut out and the story seemed very disjointed at times because of that. The narrator over acted a bit too much; I much prefer the narrator of the previous three books. Especially when he did Louis' voice, it was almost ridiculous. It might just be personal preference, but I hated the way he made Louis sound, which further hindered my enjoyment of the story. At least it was short and easy to get through.

    This has to be the abridged version but it doesn't say it any where if you are a fan you will notice some of the best parts left out. Example; they cut out the part with Marius. Skip it. Read the book it's better.
