with the Vampire
written in 1976 Published in 1979
Anne Rice's first
book was published in 1976 although it was first written as a short story.
It had taken an while before she managed to have it published.
This book was the first of it's kind and so a lot of reviewers didn't know
how to take it.
These type of books are easier to find thanks to Anne Rice.
The start of the book is very strange not like most. Starting at the presant
time and a meeting between Daniel the reporter and Louis the Vampire. A Interview
an story Louis wants to tell his story.
Louis tells his from the time he was made an vampire in 1791 by Lestat, a
vampire he comes to love and hate. He tells of an child vampire Claudia and
Armand and his coven.
This Louis wants to tell his story and he will.
A very moving very sad at times detailed with fully rounded charcters you
end up caring for. You just want to find out more about these vampires and
you will if you contine reading Anne Rice's other books.
Best bits about it Vampires, Lestat, History, detailed charcters.

story of Interview with an Vampire followed Louis and so this book is about

Star. The group he choses is Satan's Night Out and they are renamed The Vampire
He puts his plan together writes songs makes an album and films video's and
to write his life story. He wants all this to be secret and released at the
The book follows not only his Vampire life but his mortal life to. That is
what makes this book. You see the year before he becamean Vampire so you understand
why he was choosen to be one.
This is my favourite Anne Rice book this gives an totally different view of
Lestat than the Interview with the Vampire book. You begin to understand why
he acts like he does.
The story follows his journy with Nicolas at first then his mothr. Then Lestat
is by himself so it follows his journy to met Marcuis and those who must be
Although it mentions his time with Louis and Claudia this is only an few pages.
The book has an additional chapter added after the events at the Vampire Lestat
Lestat has woken someone who should not have been woken up.
