So what can I say about this book that hasn’t been said already I loved Louis He’ll always have a special place in my heart because he’s the embodiment of the fight of good against evil No matter which vampire you encounter throughout the course of this book they all lost their humanity their compassion for their victims and their sense of justice ”I saw you in the theatre your suffering your sympathy with that girl I saw your sympathy for Denis when I offered him to you; you die when you kill as if you feel that you deserve to die and you stint on nothing But why with this passion and this sense of justice do you wish to call yourself the child of Satan”Louis Nope never He’d been turned into a vampire decades and centuries ago but he still managed to preserve his humanity and to some degree even his innocence He has to drink blood in order to stay alive but he certainly doesn’t enjoy it In fact he condemns himself for being too weak to go without it he despises the weakness of his nature and he most definitely loathes the creature that lives within him In short I’m pretty certain he’s the worst vampire ever lol ”He loves you He loves you He would have you and he would not have me stand in the way”And because of this he attacks Claudia and makes her a vampire in the end Well actually Lestat turns her but those are just semantics ; P Maybe it was her innocence that drew him maybe it was her young blood her strong will to survive but whatever it was it caused him to drink from a child and Lestat in his endless cruelty and cunning persuaded him to kill her only to take it from there and to make her a vampire instead ”Monsters To give me immortality in this hopeless guise this helpless form”Oh how I felt with Claudia Just imagine being imprisoned in a body that is so young and frail I mean in the book she’s only five when she’s turned and her mind grows but her body never changes A 65 year old woman living an eternal life in the body of a five year old How cruel how horrible this existence must have been Alone to feel sexual desire but never to act on it to be trapped in a body that isn’t made for anything of it Poor Claudia It’s no surprise she despised them both for it Lestat she hated with a passion but Louis How could she hate him She was torn because she loved him but also detested him for what he had done For how he treated her As a child even though she was already a grown up woman ”For you see” I said to her in that same calm voice “what died tonight in this room was not that woman It will take her many nights to die perhaps years What has died in this room tonight is the last vestige in me of what was human”And so the story unfolds and the repercussions their actions entail eventually catch up on them sighs By the end of the book I actually felt sorry for all of them Not only Louis and Claudia but also Lestat and Armand It made me sad to see what happened to them and I’m really sorry that Armand and Louis never got a chance to work out ”I want you I want you than anything in the world”They had such a great chemistry but the price to be together was just too high To destroy the one thing Louis loved the most sort of destroyed Louis as well So basically everything Armand loved about him was snuffed out the moment he set things into motion The irony isn’t lost on me ConclusionI really enjoyed reading “Interview with the Vampire” Sometimes it felt like watching the movie and at other times I appreciated the additional info that always seems to get lost in film adaptions no matter how decent they are lol Some things you can only glean when you read the book and for me this alone was enough reason to give it a try XDPS I think I’ll have another movie date with Louis Lestat and Armand tonight ; PDid anyone say vampires are outNope they are definitely not because this little gem existed way before “Twilight” was even a thought ; PI wanted to read this ever since my young and innocent me watched “Interview with the Vampire” on TV That rhyme wasn’t intended I swear lolWell anyway I always loved the movie A sexy and broody Brad Pitt a wicked and cunning Tom Cruise what’s not to love XD Plus they are so beautiful that it hurts 3coughs Okay back on trackI saw this at the library I snatched it from the shelf I giggled gleefully and rather maliciously and now I’m going to read it End of the story Let’s hope it’s a good one fingers crossed XD

Ngs them into a whole society of vampires But Louis and Claudia find that finding others like themselves provides no easy answers and in fact presents dangers they scarcely imaginedOriginally begun as a short story the book took off as Anne wrote it spinning the tragic and triumphant life experiences of a soul As well as the struggles of its characters Interview captures the political and social changes of two continents The novel also introduces Lestat Anne's most enduring character a heady mixture of attraction and revulsion The book full of lush description centers on the themes of immortality change loss sexuality and power annericec I admit that I couldn't get through the rest of The Vampire Chronicles but this one stays a favouriteWhy do you like it so oh vampire crazy Vessey Really I do like vampires Even though I'm not a Twilight fan I even have my own set of teeth A real goth girl inhabits my body and she hungers for dark adventures I'm a sinister person I know First I really like Anne Rice's prose It is so beautiful and enchanting The whole story comes along with a good measure of dark sensuality which I particularly like What is important to me though is that it presents in a very captivating way problems which have been haunting humanity since for ever How many people in reality live tortured by guilt and loneliness and feel different than everybody else the way Louis does Or how many people are tormented by the thought that their looks do not show their true self and that the others are unable to see past the surface Claudia Or how many people are forced to live and suffer with someone they can never uite connect to out of necessity loneliness because they love them despite all or all three at once I think many people can relate to the heroes I should say anti heroes really of this dark taleWhat is loneliness What is the world What is eternity What does it mean to be immortal What is the nature of existence Is there God What does it mean to be good What does it mean to be evil And which is the bigger evil to be the actual committer of a crime or to allow it What is life what is death It speaks not only of and the value of life and death of humans as individuals but of the life and death of beliefs values possibilitiesIt is told through the POV of one narrator but it has a really big scope Anne Rice shows an amazing skill in reflecting people's feelings and struggles What is fiction if not a mirror to reality Two opposite concepts which are not that opposite after all Every creation of art is a message born out of its creator's experience and inner worldRead count 4
