The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice can only be fully enjoyed in the unabridged versions as the unfolding stories of the whole series are so complex and interconnected. Facts and incidents missing from any of the first books detract from the understanding and enjoyment of those following on.
Simon Vance is as always an excellent narrator and in" Interview with the Vampire", strikes just the right voices for the characters. Serious, sad Louis and wild irresponsible Lestat came to life perfectly as I had imagined. If audible brings us the "Mayfair Witches" in unabridged versions also that will be an added bonus.
Highly recommended to those already addicted and to listeners new to Anne Rice's work - these are the true vampires - don't expect tender romance or vegetarian vamps here!

I've been cursing (to my uninterested wife) Audible, for at least the last year for not having Anne Rice's quintessential books unabridged. Audible has definitively and irrevocably solved that problem today. Simon Vance is a brilliant orator who satisfies this burgeoning classic for audiobookephiles (yes I [may have] just coined a new English word) of the most discriminating variety. This is a beautiful title in many facets, purchase without hesitation.

I love this story, it is truly epic and a story you can really get lost in. It is so atmospheric and I love all the history involved. You come to loath Lestat and feel for the narrator who had to put up with him for so long. It is brutal at times but brilliant and I can't wait to listen to the next part in the series. The narration is excellent as well; his voice is so easy to listen to.
