Okay, I know I’m probably preaching to the choir with this one–if you are any kind of vampire fan at all, you’ve probably already read Interview or at least seen the excellent movie version with Brad Pitt and a blond Tom Cruise. But no vampire list would be complete without the sad story of Louis, an 18th century plantation owner who, after losing his family, allows himself to be turned into an immortal vampire by his blood-letting sponsor, Lestat. Louis and Lestat are friends and hunters together, until Louis’s all too human conscience begins to bother him. He can’t take all the murder and death that comes with being one of the undead, and he especially can’t stand how cruel Lestat is to his victims. So Louis sets out with his own creation, a young girl that he and Lestat “turned” and tries to find the meaning of life, if there is one. A good, deep vampire read. If you really want to know how vampires tick and ponder the mysteries of the universe along the way, Interview is just the cup of negative AB, I mean TEA for you.
One thought on “Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice”
I do agree that this may be an exception when it comes to a movie matching the quality of the book. This book and movie is a keeper on my shelves.
