      This is one of those books that defined me I don t mean that I turned goth or vampire or whatever No it started me thinking.I was born and raised in the South I didn t read anything else other than fantasy novels like Dragonlance I joined the Marines in 89 and while watching a movie about a teenage vampire it was mentioned that Dracula is good literature I went to the base library to check out Dracula and beside it on the shelf was this book I took this one instead.The book was great I loved it [...]

      Dear Anne Rice NOT WORTHY.Signed, All Fictional Vampires Who Are Not LestatThis was a re read for me, but in all honesty, I don t think I was ready for this book the first time I read it Or at least, I didn t appreciate it for the sheer masterpiece of storytelling that it is, and it s not just the mood and the world and the mythology and the fast moving plot than anything, it s the characters Lestat, of course, Rice s brat prince , arrogant and compassionate and impossible, all at the same time [...]

      Oh, how I love Anne Rice.I actually started reading these books after I read Twilight Yes, surprisingly, I went back to vampire fiction after that Meyer is a good writer, but once you ve met Anne s Vampires, you re never going back Anyhow, this book was great It still has the good kind of vampires the ones that sleep in coffins, drink human blood and burn in the sunlight This second book in the series wasn t disappointing, although I feared it might be, after reading the amazing Interview With T [...]

      The year is 1984, and Lestat is the famous lead singer of the group, The Vampire Lestat He stumbles upon a simple little book, Interview with the Vampire , starring Louis, his ersatz lover of sorts because vampires don t exactly have lovers the same way humans do So Lestat sets the record straight and tells the tale of his life as a vampire.When people say this is better than Interview with the Vampire, they are not kidding This book is light years better than Interview I almost wish this book n [...]

      Lestat fue el primer vampiro del que me enamor.

      It is my suggestion that, if you want to sample Anne Rice, and have never read any of her other works, this may be the book you want to read instead of her most famous novel, Interview with a Vampire let me explain The Vampire Lestat is quite a different novel from the first in the series, because we are dealing with an entirely different vampire than the depressed and vulnerable Louis from Rice s first book Don t get me wrong, Lestat was the antagonist in Interview but towards the end of the no [...]

    8. Stepheny says:
      3.5The second installment of Anne Rice s Vampire Chronicles switches perspective The story is now being narrated by the one and only Lestat de Lioncourt He is outraged by Louis tale and feels the need to defend himself He decides to write a book detailing his long life as a vampire.Lestat runs away with his lover when he is a young man The two men run away to France where they drink wine and cry over the beauty of music and art They re of course madly in love and enjoy nothing than the company [...]

      This was the Audible audio book, unabridged, read by Simon Vance Who gives a really good performance, I love his vampire voice Lestat de Lion court rises from his long hibernation in 1980 and decides to become a rockstar He puts out an album and to accompany this he writes his autobiography revealing the story of his youth as well as the history of the race of vampires, which started 4000 years ago in Ancient Egypt.Some gleaned facts Anne Rice loves the words preternatural and savage garden This [...]

    10. Craig "NEEDS MORE DAMN TIME TO READ !!!!" says:
      Phew Spent most of yesterday and some of today finishing this book Very seductive read indeed, I do like how the author writes but from time to time I felt my concentration slipping because she goes on just that little bit than is needed sometimes.

    11. Bart says:
      A happy surprise indeed Perhaps it was a result of low expectations or a prior experience with the movie Interview with the Vampire that had me so unprepared to enjoy this novel.The Vampire Lestat is a great read It may not have all the literary quality of, say, Cormac McCarthy s equally gruesome accounts, but it is enjoyable on its first reading.What makes authors great, of course, is how their works hold up on revisits Knowing the plotting and the conclusion of Anne Rice s novel, I m unlikely [...]

    12. Stephen says:
      4.0 to 4.5 stars Anne Rice s re imagining of the vampire mythos is excellent and Lestat is on my list of All Time Favorite characters As good as this novel is, the books that follow The Queen of the Damned, The Tale of the Body Thief and Memnoch the Devil are even better Highly Recommended Nominee World Fantasy Award for Best Novel 1986 Nominee Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel 1986

    13. Olivier Delaye says:
      This is my fourth reread in 15 or so years, mind you of The Vampire Lestat and honestly it gets better every time It s just incredible how well this book ages like, it doesn t feel pass at all and is still very much up to date, even though it was written nearly 30 years ago The prose is absolutely gorgeous, the story is downright engrossing and, history wise, very well researched Really, gothic literature doesn t get any better than this That said, let me add a caveat here if long and detailed d [...]

    14. Erika says:
      Oh Lestat de Lioncourt, how can you be this rebel, how dare you create such trouble while not giving a single thought to your actions.This is the second book on The Vampire Chronicles, and it is time for Lestat to tell his story It starts in the year 1984 if my mind is not playing tricks on me, wow, i just realized that i was reading this book at the same time with the book 1984 Isn t that weird book set in 1984 while i was reading 1984 no but are you sure not even a little well i whatever, i th [...]

    15. Michelle says:
      TL DR it s worth reading if you enjoy the franchise, the characters, and are willing to self edit that is, skip the repetitive expositions.Although I read this book when it was first published, and reread it a time or two in the intervening decades, most recently I read this book as an audio book, which is an interesting test for a book The book is in the first person, so listening to it heightens the effect of Lestat telling you his story however, I hadn t realized how much of the pontificating [...]

    16. Miquel Reina says:
      Anne Rice is definitely one of my favorite authors but as I said in my review for Interview with the Vampire , in my opinion, Vampire Chronicles saga is divided into two parts Interview with the Vampire and the rest of the books, especially by the shift in their point of view the first point of view lies on Louis while in second lies on Lestat That makes the Vampire Lestat and subsequent novels a passionate and less melancholic mood than Interview with the vampire Rice plunges us into the world [...]

      Was a 4 star but changed for personal reasons to a one.

    18. Kristen Burns says:
      4 StarsReview Time for another super long review that no one will read Things I Disliked Things I Didn t Mind but Others Might Dislike The book was long, and between the flashbacks of Armand s and Marius s lives and Lestat s kind of long winded way of talking about everything, the story moved forward at a very slow pace sometimes, which made me impatient A lot of the characters actions and words were dramatic and or strange to the point of being unrealistic, but somehow it just worked and never [...]

    19. Jess The Bookworm says:
      This is the sequel to Interview with the Vampire, in which Lestat de Lioncourt awakens in the 1980s, reads Louis account of the events in Interview with the Vampire, and decides to set the record straight Lestat takes us back to his upbringing as the son of a Marquis in France, where even as a mortal, he was in the thoes of an existential crisis, filled with the need to escape his family home He runs away with his lover to Paris, where they join the theatre It is here that Lestat is turned, and [...]

    20. Chris says:
      In Interview With a Vampire , Lestat was the villain, and could be viewed as a cold, unfeeling monster In the sequel, Lestat gets a chance to set the record straight Reading HIS account on his life, and the years spent with Louis, he actually manages to gain sympathy, and he fully admits to being a brat prince of the undead, and you fall in love with this vampire who listens to Beethoven while riding a motorcycle down the moonlit streets Lestat has an ego so large, it is little wonder that he ch [...]

      Lestat qu se puede decir de un personaje tan seguro de si mismo, capaz de crueldades impensables, y a la vez, due o de una personalidad terca, posesiva, egoista La historia de Lestat deber a ser triste un hombre joven, obligado a ser vampiro por un creador macabro y suicida Pero no, su personalidad hace que acepte su nuevo estado como una forma m s de sobrevivir en una Par s que nos resulta ajena, pero no extra a Es un vampiro que no se esconde, y que no acepta su destino de condenado ni siquier [...]

      You ll notice this took me well over a month to read, which should say all that needs to be said considering how much time I have to read at the moment and how fast I normally read books.That was going to be my entire review, until I came across this little gem of a line while powering through trying to finish yesterday said by Marius to Lestat The truth is most women are weak, be they mortal or immortal But when they are strong, they are absolutely unpredictable page 409 in my edition My reacti [...]

    24. Krista Baetiong Tungol says:
      I was so spellbound by this book that I had actually mulled over the idea of stealing Lestat away from Anne Rice in any way possible It has been several years since I read The Vampire Lestat, but I still remember how I d written Lestat several love poems and fancied myself becoming his vampire fledgling, dreamed of hunting alongside him to the very roofs of the Cathedral of Notre Dame or sleeping beside him in his extravagant sarcophagus ha ha, those teenage fantasies.I finished this book in thr [...]

    25. Amber says:
      I really enjoyed this novel and was so drawn in by the mind of Lestat It took me awhile to pick this up after reading Interview W The Vampire because I felt like Louis was so depressing and I needed a break after reading it Lestat is so much charming and his life contains far intrigue than his American counterparts This novel cast Lestat in a completely different light, and really shows you just how ridiculous Louis Claudia may have been being Saw that coming, total drama queens I completely f [...]

      Me atrever a a decir que es el mejor de las cr nicas, si no uno de los mejores sin duda.Con su re lectura, sigo opinando lo mismo o mejor Brutales todos los de la saga, al igual que brutal es Rice Todas las cr nicas ocupan lugar de honor en mi estanter a Al igual que dec a con la primera entrega, pese a haberlo le do un par de veces, no me atrevo a hacer rese a, por el tiempo que ha pasado, adem s, no puedo ser objetiva, porque como han sido tantos a os de cr nicas vamp ricas, tantas sensaciones [...]
