Once an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France, now Lestat is a rockstar in the demonic, shimmering 1980s. He rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his terrifying exsitence. His story, the second volume in Anne Rice's best-selling Vampire Chronicles, is mesmerizing, passionate, and thrilling.
"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)

Vance does Anne Rice justice
There are no sparkly vampires here. If you are looking for another run of the mill vamp book, this is not it. Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles are in a league all their own. Predating the modern craze with Twilight-esque vampires, the supernatural creatures you will encounter in Lestat are far from anything resembling Edward or Bella.
There are many moments that drew me in during the listening of this book. The memories of Lestat as a human birthed so many emotions within me. Anne Rice's talent truly shines through in this novel.
This is the first of Simon Vance's performances that I've listened to. I was very pleased and impressed. His speech is fluid and dynamic, easy to follow, and engaging.
This book brought forth a full range of emotion for me. While there are times when I cannot help shedding a tear and letting out a giggle, the emotional response to Lestat is much greater than simple happiness or sadness. Anne Rice engages her audiences with complex, realistic characters.
