Interview With The Vampire

Interview With The Vampire - Anne Rice Anne Rice has a lot to answer for. Those damn sycophantic useless Cullen vampires probably wouldn't exist without her dynamic duo of Lestat and Louis. That said Interview with the Vampire is a great book, so great Sting wrote a song about it. The next book The Vampire Lestat is equally good then it's downhill all the way!

Way back then the idea of romantic melancholy vampires looking for redemption was a novel one. Nowadays they have devolved into unbearable well-coiffed whiners. Any way, this is a wonderful book, atmospheric, gothic, sad, exciting and riveting (poor Claudia). Forget the sequels, just read this one (OK, and the next one).
