☆ Interview with the Vampire ç Download by ☆ Anne Rice Poor vampires Such a bad press over the years what with all the blood sucking, neck snapping and general ravaging of virgins, maidens and anyone with a taste for Gothic style bedroom furniture and an open window Still, now that Edward Cullen and his pan faced fan base of moody teens have infiltrated popular culture, replacing the stereotypical images of pale, foppish young men in lacy cuffs and brocaded velvet jackets with a utilitarian Gap Style wardrobe of urban wear and a slightly sulky look , we seem to be moving further away from the traditional imagery That said, R Patz see I know the lingo, I listen to the kids appears to be dead from the eyeballs down in many scenes and is probably as wooden as the stake which should be used to pin him back into his eter Damn you straight to hell, 1001 books You Must read Before You Die, for what you made me do You made me read a goddamn vampire book Not only that, you made me read a vampire book with a cover made entirely of shiny ostentatious material that shouted to everyone in the library as I checked this out, Look everyone Madeline is reading a book about vampires SHINY SHINY SHINY LOOK AT ME I CONTAIN SEXY BROODING VAMPIRES AND I AM SO EFFING SHINY I cannot stress how shiny gold this cover is Like, the ancient Egyptians would look at this cover and say, That s a bit much It was awful Okay, so the book itself isn t bad, really hence my rating of two stars, which Goodreads classifies as it was ok That s what the book is just okay Maybe I would have been thrilled by the story if I hadn t seen the movie even though there s stuff in the book that didn t make it into the movie, none of it This Is The Story Of Louis, As Told In His Own Words, Of His Journey Through Mortal And Immortal Life Louis Recounts How He Became A Vampire At The Hands Of The Radiant And Sinister Lestat And How He Became Indoctrinated, Unwillingly, Into The Vampire Way Of Life His Story Ebbs And Flows Through The Streets Of New Orleans, Defining Crucial Moments Such As His Discovery Of The Exquisite Lost Young Child Claudia, Wanting Not To Hurt But To Comfort Her With The Last Breaths Of Humanity He Has Inside Yet, He Makes Claudia A Vampire, Trapping Her Womanly Passion, Will, And Intelligence Inside The Body Of A Small Child Louis And Claudia Form A Seemingly Unbreakable Alliance And Even Settle Down For A While In The Opulent French Quarter Louis Remembers Claudia S Struggle To Understand Herself And The Hatred They Both Have For Lestat That Sends Them Halfway Across The World To Seek Others Of Their Kind Louis And Claudia Are Desperate To Find Somewhere They Belong, To Find Others Who Understand, And Someone Who Knows What And Why They AreLouis And Claudia Travel Europe, Eventually Coming To Paris And The Ragingly Successful Theatre Des Vampires A Theatre Of Vampires Pretending To Be Mortals Pretending To Be Vampires Here They Meet The Magnetic And Ethereal Armand, Who Brings Them Into A Whole Society Of Vampires But Louis And Claudia Find That Finding Others Like Themselves Provides No Easy Answers And In Fact Presents Dangers They Scarcely Imaginedoriginally Begun As A Short Story, The Book Took Off As Anne Wrote It, Spinning The Tragic And Triumphant Life Experiences Of A Soul As Well As The Struggles Of Its Characters, Interview Captures The Political And Social Changes Of Two Continents The Novel Also Introduces Lestat, Anne S Most Enduring Character, A Heady Mixture Of Attraction And Revulsion The Book, Full Of Lush Description, Centers On The Themes Of Immortality, Change, Loss, Sexuality, And Power Annerice One of the rare few books I couldn t finish I could not empathize with the lead character at all once he turned into a vampire I would be regularly bombarded with paragraphs describing how goddamn beautiful everything was now that he could see them with his vampire eyes The forest was beautiful, the night sky was beautiful, the homeless people were beautifulnot normally, mind you, only when seen through vampire eyes.
These special vampire eyes might be the reason why Louis narrator and Lestat sort of bad guy spend most of their time making moon eyes at one another In fact, that s mostly all I can remember from the story since the plot was so forgettable Aside from the characters adopting a girl which was entertaining , Louis spends most of his time admiring things or arguing with Lestat Skip the book, wat I admit that I couldn t get through the rest of The Vampire Chronicles , but this one stays a favourite.
Why do you like it so, oh, vampire crazy Vessey Really, I do like vampires Even though I m not a Twilight fan I even have my own set of teeth A real goth girl inhabits my body and she hungers for dark adventures I m a sinister person, I know First, I really like Anne Rice s prose It is so beautiful and enchanting The whole story comes along with a good measure of dark sensuality, which I particularly like What is important to me, though, is that it presents, in a very captivating way, problems which have been haunting humanity since for ever How many people in reality live tortured by guilt and loneliness and feel different than everybody else the way Louis does Or how many people are tormented by the thought tha I really enjoyed this book read it a while ago Thought the film was very good Not sure whether it was as good as the book or not It is very similar to The Picture Of Dorian Grey In both books the main character had a wealth of knowledge and experience They rub shoulders with the , privileged people.
Is vampirism real I once watched a documentary video fake news And in the film a lab scientist had a series of clear tanks containing mice Some pregnant mice, some new born mice and another containing an old mouse The hairs on its chin were grey so I guess he was getting old I think mice only live for about two years so this one was probably at least two summers old Anyhow I digress, this gets nasty now The video goes into a time lapse The lab assista I first read this book in High School and my sad gothic self immediately fell in love with its beautiful, damaged characters For years this book haunted me The rest of the Vampires books were pulpy fun but this book really had something She captured something here and her almost baroque prose really carries the story Later in life, I came to realize that Interview is a kind of Catcher In The Rye for goths Louis is turned into a vampire and continues his search for the answers who he is, why he is, what his place is He wars with lovers, family and friends in his search to define his own life only to discover that nothing he does matters and that everyone is just as lost as he is, an ultimately there are no answers but the ones we make ourselves.
He caminado por las calles de Nueva Orleans como el Segador Maldito y me he alimentado de vida humana para mantener mi propia existencia No soy un mortal, padre soy inmortal y condenado, como los ngeles puestos en el infierno por Dios Soy un vampiroHac a tiempo que no le a sobre vampiros, y quer a darle una oportunidad a los famosos vampiros de Rice, conocidos por algunos como yo por la ic nica pel cula de Entrevista con el vampiro que lleva el mismo nombre del primer libro de la saga A diferencia de otros libros de vampiros que he le do, ac , la historia est totalmente centrada en los inmortales, se nos presentan tres vampiros que van a formar una especie de familia moderna conviviendo gran parte de la historia, cada vampiro tiene una personalidad muy marcada, tenemos a Louis el protagonista, l es quien nos narrara su vida, su muerte y su inmortalidad.
I have to say I liked the movie better I mean eye candy I have wanted to read this series forever and since one of my groups is doing a challenge for a badge I thought now would be perfect BUT, if they don t get better I m not going to waste my time Too many books to waste time any Happy Reading Mel
It seems like it might be fun A little bit trashy, but fun Not so well written Disappointing.
Already, you know it won t be up to much.

You are bored, your mind wanders.

You cannot stop.
It is dark.
Dark Macabre Gothic Haunting.
You are trapped.
Trapped in someone s twisted fantasy.
Until pain and suffering and anguish and loneliness are beautiful.
But you know that they are not, and no book will make it so.
You keep reading.
You are bored You put the book down.

Waiting for something to happen.
