Una stanza buia. Un registratore acceso. Un giornalista. E un vampiro. Da quasi due secoli, ormai, Louis de Pointe du Lac non è più un uomo: è una creatura della notte, e ha tutta la notte a disposizione per convincere Daniel, il giornalista, che la storia che gli sta raccontando è vera. Così come è vero il suo volto, tanto pallido ed esangue da sembrare trasparente, di una bellezza soprannaturale e per sempre cristallizzata. Louis racconta di come abbia ricevuto il dono (o forse la maledizione?) della vita eterna proprio quando non desiderava altro che la morte. È il 1791, è un'altra New Orleans, e Louis, in seguito al suicidio dell'amatissimo fratello, vorrebbe soltanto seguirne il destino. Ma la seduzione del dono oscuro è potente, specialmente se ha i modi, la voce e l'aspetto di Lestat. Sensuale e affascinante, crudele e allo stesso tempo capace di profonda commozione, Lestat ha bisogno di Louis tanto quanto Louis ha bisogno di lui. Quando infine, dopo anni di scorribande notturne, Louis sta per decidersi ad abbandonare Lestat, questi gli fa il regalo più grande: Claudia. Una bambina di appena cinque anni, in fin di vita, che solo il dono oscuro può salvare. L'unico peccato che il sacrilego e irriverente Lestat non si può permettere: creare una vampira di soli cinque anni. Una vampira bambina, che non crescerà mai. E sarà l'inizio della fine.

You begin. It seems like it might be fun. A little bit trashy, but fun. Not so well written. Disappointing. Already, you know it won't be up to much. You keep reading. Why this way? You read, wondering why. It seems pointless. You are bored, your mind wanders. You keep reading. You cannot stop. It is dark. So Leggi tutto
If you would kindly look at my shelves, you might notice that I've read a good chunk of vampire novels written in the past two decades. It seemed strange to me, though, that I still hadn't read one of the more important ones. Now, I don't think it's because this book is particularly brilliant or a m Leggi tutto
”People who cease to believe in God or goodness altogether still believe in the devil. I don’t know why. No, I do indeed know why. Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult.” It’s been ages I first saw the movie but I still remember how much I enjoyed it. How sorry I felt for Loui Leggi tutto
Interview with the Vampire (The Vampire Chronicles, #1), Anne Rice This is the story of Louis, as told in his own words, of his journey through mortal and immortal life. Louis recounts how he became a vampire at the hands of the radiant and sinister Lestat and how he became indoctrinated, unwillingly Leggi tutto
I have to say I liked the movie better. I mean eye candy! I have wanted to read this series forever and since one of my groups is doing a challenge for a badge I thought now would be perfect. BUT, if they don't get better I'm not going to waste my time. Too many books to waste time any more 😊 Happy R Leggi tutto
I just saw that Anne died today. I am devastated. She was my favourite author for 20+ years. I conversed with her several times. There were periods in my life when her books were the only thing I had to live for. They kept me going. And it all started with Interview with the Vampire back in 1993. By Leggi tutto
I really enjoyed this book. Read it a while ago. Thought the film was very good. Not sure whether it was as good as the book or not. It is very similar to The Picture Of Dorian Grey. In both books the main character had a wealth of knowledge and experience. They rub shoulders with the more, privileg Leggi tutto
Damn you straight to hell, 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, for what you made me do. You made me read a goddamn vampire book. Not only that, you made me read a vampire book with a cover made entirely of shiny ostentatious material that shouted to everyone in the library as I checked this out Leggi tutto
Since I've watched the movie based on this book several years ago (starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt), I decided to end October by reading one of the most chilling vampire tales ever written (sorry, Bram!) I enjoyed: 1. the extremely descriptive scenes throughout the story, a few of them giving me the Leggi tutto
I thoroughly enjoyed this from beginning to end. This was pure gothic-vampire horror but presented in a way the characters all had human emotions and interpersonal problems. I really liked the descriptive imagery used throughout the entire story: from dark 1700s Louisiana to shadowy Old Country Euro Leggi tutto
