«Sono il vampiro Lestat. Sono immortale. Più o meno. La luce del sole, il calore di un fuoco intenso... ecco, potrebbero annientarmi. O forse no... ora sono ciò che l'America chiama una superstar del rock.»
Lestat de Lioncourt è tra noi, oggi, musicista rock adorato da migliaia e migliaia di fan. Ma le origini della sua storia sono lontane, perse in un vortice di epoche e luoghi, di incontri, apparizioni e misteri. Da Parigi a Venezia, dalla Sicilia al Cairo, una traccia scarlatta ricorda il passaggio del vampiro Lestat... e la sua vita è una lunga avventura, di passione, di sangue, di piacere e di orrori. Questo libro ne racconta la storia.

This is one of those books that defined me. I don't mean that I turned goth or vampire or whatever. No... it started me thinking. I was born and raised in the South. I didn't read anything else other than fantasy novels (like Dragonlance). I joined the Marines in 89 and while watching a movie about a Leggi tutto
Dear Anne Rice: NOT WORTHY. Signed, All Fictional Vampires Who Are Not Lestat This was a re-read for me, but in all honesty, I don't think I was ready for this book the first time I read it. Or at least, I didn't appreciate it for the sheer masterpiece of storytelling that it is, and it's not just the Leggi tutto
¿Recuerdan a Lestat? El vampiro “malo” de Entrevista con el vampiro Pues él ha despertado de su letargo en el siglo XX, el maravilloso siglo XX con toda su modernidad, su moda, su televisión, su tecnología y su música, pero para sorpresa de Lestat se encuentra con un libro que narra parte de su ex Leggi tutto
Cuando leí el año pasado "Entrevista con el vampiro" quedé muy satisfecho y sorprendido. Me esperaba un libro de aventuras, y encontré un texto muy reflexivo, además de mucho más profundo de lo que me figuraba. Al acabarlo y hablar de él, todo el mundo me decía que era genial, pero que Lestat el vam Leggi tutto
The Vampire Lestat is the second book in The Vampire Chronicles series by Anne Rice. I adored the first book, Interview With A Vampire which was told in Louis' perspective, a vampire that Lestat made who clung desperately to his humanity. The Vampire Lestat is Lestat's story told in his perspective. Leggi tutto
Oh, how I love Anne Rice. I actually started reading these books after I read Twilight. Yes, surprisingly, I went back to vampire fiction after that. Meyer is a good writer, but once you've met Anne's Vampires, you're never going back. Anyhow, this book was great. It still has the good kind of vampir Leggi tutto
Interview With the Vampire is a tough book to beat. That being said, I think I actually enjoyed this book more than Interview. And that’s saying a lot. Rice has such a beautifully poetic way of writing, it’s just so rich and you can’t help but be hypnotized by the story. I think Lestat is probably m Leggi tutto
The year is 1984, and Lestat is the famous lead singer of the group, The Vampire Lestat. He stumbles upon a simple little book, "Interview with the Vampire", starring Louis, his ersatz lover of sorts (because vampires don't exactly have lovers the same way humans do). So Lestat sets the record strai Leggi tutto
A very original take on the vampire tale, complete with a sweeping history and rich locales. This was Rice at the top of her game.
It is my suggestion that, if you want to sample Anne Rice, and have never read any of her other works, this may be the book you want to read instead of her most famous novel, "Interview with a Vampire." let me explain. "The Vampire Lestat" is quite a different novel from the first in the series, beca Leggi tutto
