This is my favorite book. It is so pretty and it made me appreciate the little things about life. I have read 13 Anne Rice books now, and they are consistently fantastic. I think it it is good to watch the movie first. That way you like the movie and the book is even better. There's no disappointment that way.

It is a slow start to the series, once you get to Queen of the Damned the series picks up the pace and it is worth it.

Not a bad read, pretty good in fact. Howver this authors later work is waaaay better, example the mayfair witches trilogy, servant of bones (mid 90's)....to be fair this is my second read of this one, was more impressed the first time (20 years ago or so) I do plan on re-reading the others in the series, I had read up tp queen of the dammed but stopped reading, I thought i'd try them again since there's actually a new one on its way this year :-)

While the movie was pretty faithful to the book, I felt that the latter best depicted the relationships among vampires and also Louis’ very human struggle to understand his place on this earth. In sum, Anne Rice brings these creatures to life in a way that perhaps had not been done before.

Great start but I lost interest about 1/2 way through. Second half seemed long and boring.

This is the book that got me into vampires, lo these many years ago. Ms. Rice's books are a very mixed bag--but the first two vampire books, as well as Memnoch the Devil and her non-supernatural novel, Feast of All Saints, are thrilling, deeply satisfying reads. Highly recommend.

A true Vampire Novel, no sparkling in the daytime. This is the one that got me into reading chronicle type novels or book 1 of _ novels. The Vampires exude sexiness and allure but are ultimately terrifying, something I find that is lacking if not gone in Modern Vampire fiction. Anne Rice does vampires justice and goes into "real" vampire problems. Prepare to be mesmerized.

this is the book that made me a reader! Loved this book, want to read all her books. Vampires that are real and understandable, sexy and filled with desires and longings.

Anne is very wordy and a lot of thought goes into one segment or time period. It could be a place or a minute. But she tends to over do it for me...a lot. But I DO love her stories. Sad she stopped with the Vampire Chronicles. This novel is a loved classic!!!! I'm James. NYC Guy. Originally from Alaksan. 33.

It took a while to get into this book but it was worth the initial struggle. I like this series of vampire novels.
