My mom and grandma always read Ann Rice and I always shook my head and put them off as over rated, basing the on the film "Queen of the Damned." It was a good movie but not really the kind of book I read. Recently I decided to watch "Interview with a Vampire" and in doing so realized what the fuss is all about. I was so impressed with Tom Cruise as Lestat and Kirsten Dunst as Claudia and the whole plot and script all together. But anyway I'm getting carried away this is supposed to be a book review.
So as a result as my finding the true Vampire Chronicles, I picked up my Mom's tattered "Interview with a Vampire." I am even more impressed with the book. I do admit that Louis is a whiner and really gives no justice to his vampire existance but Lestat on the other hand is an amazingly deep character with several conflicting emotions that is making me nearly scream to read "The Vampire Lestat," the next installment all told from Lestat's point of view.
