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.

Critic Reviews

“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)

Unabridged at last - First class

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!

Apropos!

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.

One of the greatest Vampire stories

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.

I don't think I have a comparison Anne rice is by far my fav author

Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favourite?

Louis when I first read the book about 10 years ago that's how Louis in my head sounded not brad Pitts version

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

My fav has always been the becoming of a vampire
