Title: Interview with the Vampire

Series: Vampire Chronicles #1

Author: Anne Rice

Rating: 2 of 5 Stars

Genre: Horror

Pages: 354

 

Synopsis:

A long winded, angst ridden vampire tells his tale to a young reporter in hopes of invoking sympathy for his pathetic life and the choices and the feelz he has made and experienced.

 

My Thoughts:

Utter and complete tripe. I was expecting something more ghoulish and horror like. What I got was a genteel vampire who does NOTHING but whine and complain even when he gets exactly what he wants. He refuses to be satisfied, with anything.

How this spawned a whole series is beyond me. In Twilight at least there was some action mixed in. This had action as well, but it was so thoroughly mixed in and hidden by the main characters long-windedness that it might as well have not been present.

I’ve never taken part in anything to do with Anne Rice and her recent “activities”, but with a book like this, she doesn’t deserve one more iota of my attention. I tried this, it failed to capture my interest and I can’t imagine wanting to read more of this crap.

Next!
