Interview With The Vampire
Interview With The Vampire - Anne Rice 4.5 stars

I've been wanting to read this forever it seems, and it did not disappoint. I love really getting inside Louis's head. I also like how the act of being a vampire isn't romanticized. If anything the emotional crisis for vampires is way higher than humans. I'm definitely planning to continue the series.

Ma sinceramente..
Risveglio. La trilogia dei Sensi: 1 - Anne Rice,F. Saba Sardi

Ho letto questo libro dopo sia la saga dei vampiri che quella delle streghe Mayfair.
Inutile dire che mi è sembrato piuttosto banale e basilare. Nonostante ci siano dei passaggi psicologici interessanti dei caratteri, per il resto mi sembra un'opera fortemente immatura e quasi nonsense se confrontata con i lavori successivi dell'autrice.

just not comfortable with all the talk of his "desire" for Claudia
Interview With the Vampire - Anne Rice,Simon Vance

Whenever Louie talks about stuff he tends to use strong language, he hates Lestat, he desires Claudia... and while I'm pretty sure it's not a sexual desire, there's enough in there with the language choices that makes me distinctly uncomfortable.  Claudia "seduces" her victims.  As she's gotten older while it's stated pretty clearly that Louie hasn't had sex for a very long time (an act when pressed he seems to barely remember, describes it as a pale precursor to the feeling of killing as a vampire), and that Claudia hasn't ever had sex (one of the things she's super pissed off about as part of being stuck in a 5-year-old's body for a century), Claudia does things like refer to him as "father, lover" and I'm just kind of squicking out.

for "classic horror"
Interview With the Vampire - Anne Rice,Simon Vance

just got the audio book in yesterday (good timing, I had finished The Gunslinger on my drive to work).

 

good thing: read by Simon Vance

 

bad thing: in the near future i'm going to need to go through over fifty editions on this record and see how many duplicates or junk records there are.

 

current annoyance: did she just imply the Lestat's blind father can't tell the difference between night and day?  seriously?  there's way more to differentiate night from day than what you can see.

 

so far the narrative matches my fuzzy recollections of a movie i saw some 20 years ago pretty well.  Cruise really was a great casting for Lestat (which I suppose is both a compliment and an insult).

Not sure what to make of this...
Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis: The Vampire Chronicles - Anne Rice

The gods definitely work in mysterious ways.  I just received a free copy for review.  LOL.
