Lestat. The vampire hero of Anne Rice’s enthralling novel is a creature of the darkest and richest imagination. Once an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the demonic, shimmering 1980s, he rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his eternal, terrifying exsitence. His is a mesmerizing story—passionate, complex, and thrilling.

Praise for The Vampire Lestat
“Frightening, sensual . . . Anne Rice will live on through the ages of literature. . . . To read her is to become giddy as if spinning through the mind of time, to become lightheaded as if our blood is slowly being drained away.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Fiercely ambitious, nothing less than a complete unnatural history of vampires.”—The Village Voice
“Brilliant . . . its undead characters are utterly alive.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Luxuriantly created and richly told.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer

    Anne Rice mastered the history of vampire genre decades before other authors dared to opposed her genre and intertwining stories of each vampire and the witches who were another series all together. I would say that very few authors else had really tackled this particular genre aside from Bram Bram Stoker's Dracula, which is only like the Lestat lost, both seeking redemption fighting for their lost humanity and the lust of what they are. that struggle to be a vampire end to miss humanity is prominent in all of the vampire chronicles. This particular book is exciting and wonderful response to the first book Interview with a bei have disappointed me in any way. she mastered the genre of vampire fantasy far before anyone else. is she made them likable horrific and romantic and each individual needed their own story and the stories laid out before them. I was so enthralled when this book it came out before the chronicles as it gave us the beginning of Lestat's character alive too "damned." Once started it's difficult to stop with each chronical asks and answers more.

    Excellent narrator BUT, he does have a wide range of volume, so sometimes it gets veeery quiet, and I have to turn it way up, and then it gets super loud and I need to turn it down again, listening on speakers.

  • Zaynab M.

    it explained his beginning and you can sympathise with the vampire

  • Patricia B.

    To have Michel York read makes this extremely entertaining.

  • Jessica D.

    Eloquently written and the characters are compelling
