Interview With the Vampire (The Vampire Chronicles)

Anne Rice
Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force–a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write.

I can understand why this one got so famous and became a hit in the movie world. But this really wasn't for me. I don't believe in vampires and the whole thing with the "undead'' is not something I believe in either. No such things as zombies or wearwolves either. This one had good story telling. The pacing was okay. There wasn't really any character development and I wasn't a fan really of any of the characters. I couldn't relate to any of them or feel any sympathy for them. The plot really wasn't anything too exciting but it was entertaining enough to finish to the end. So one star for effort. But that's about it.

What I learned from this is that in very rare instances, the movie can be better than the book. Anne Rice's writing is TOO descriptive and flowery, I was rolling my eyes throughout the entire thing. Did she have to overly describe EVERYTHING? It got to the point where I would forget what was happening in the story reading all the descriptions and how "beautiful" everything was. I did like the story itself, it was just a chore to get through.

I tripped my way through this book because of her popularity when I was reading it. I have never been so bored with a book I actually finished in my life.

Every now and then, I just have to read this book all over again. What prompted this re-read was that I had to re-set my Vampire-meter, after having endured Twilight. *shudder*
