E' la solitudine, la "maledizione" che si impadronisce di Lestat, il vampiro immortale, il principe incontrastato del tenebroso universo dei morti viventi. Lestat avverte dolorosamente la "maledizione" della sua solitudine e desidera rinascere come mortale, liberandosi quindi del suo corpo di "non-morto" e impadronendosi di un corpo "vivo". Intraprende così un viaggio che lo porterà da Miami al deserto del Gobi, da Amsterdam alla giungla amazzonica, fino all'incontro cruciale con l'unico uomo che può soddisfare il suo desiderio, Raglan James, il Ladro di Corpi. Più sinistro e malvagio di un demone, il Ladro di Corpi si impadronisce con l'inganno del corpo vampiresco di Lestat, il quale, rinchiuso come anelava nel corpo mortale, scopre...

The first Rice novel I ever read. I was in Bari, Italy, waiting for the ferry to take me to Corfu, Greece. I was reading a hideously boring Candadian novel, and the young lady in line next to me was reading The Tale of the Body Thief. We switched books. I had never heard of Anne Rice. I fell in love Leggi tutto
She's way too in love with her own writing at this point. Takes ten pages to describe the front of a mansion. In the words of the great Casey Kasem: Ponderous man, f'ing ponderous.
This book is very good . It is well written and packed of life reflections . There is no doubt that Anne Rice knows what she is doing. Particularly, I just don´t think that this installment is at the same level as the first three books of this series. To me, this book seems to center more in introspect Leggi tutto
Bullet Review: Wow. What a serious waste of my time! I felt bad when I was bored with The Queen of the Damned , which I attribute to being Vampire Chronicle-d out, but I can't use that excuse with this book. I had quite a few months between "Queen of the Damned" and whatever THIS is. This book has a th Leggi tutto
• I thought that this is by far Anne Rice’s best description of Lestat’s true character. Everything he did in this book was exactly what I would expect someone who is supposed to be so selfish and evil to do. Throughout the rest of the books Rice tries so hard to tell you that Lestat is really not g Leggi tutto
Leer sobre vampiros no es una nueva moda. Los vampiros no nacieron como una explosión de hormonas adolescentes, ni mucho menos del cine (aunque sea este el que nos haya dado las imágenes más vivas y majestuosas de ellos). Seguramente no muchos estuvieron de acuerdo con el ahora cliché del vampiro re Leggi tutto
3.5 stars. Another solid chapter in one of the most iconic vampire series of all time. It is amazing that even after all this time (and the endless series of vampire novels) that this series still shines as one of the better ones. Recommended!!!
I enjoyed Tale of the Body Thief more than any other installment of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles up to this point in the series. Unlike all of her other vampire novels, Rice doesn't spend half the book in flashbacks relating someone's history, and for that we are rewarded. More than ever before we Leggi tutto
The Tale of the Body Thief is the 4th book in the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. And it is by far the best one. Lestat is being followed. Everywhere he goes he senses that someone is watching him. He can’t shake it. Finally, his mysterious follower leaves him instructions to meet. Is it a trap? Is Leggi tutto
It is official: this is the book that made me an unwavering fan of Lestat. While the previous Vampire Chronicle, Queen of the Damned features an array of characters and scenarios, there wasn’t as much a focus on the Brat Prince. In this, the fourth book in the series, Anne Rice has almost inverted t Leggi tutto
