Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

GENRE: Fantasy, Paranormal | PAGES: 308

My rating: ★★★★

Interview with the Vampire is unlike any other vampire novel I’ve read. It is full of sumptuous detail and the language is deliciously lyrical. Anne Rice’s style of writing possesses a quality that makes you feel as though you’re in the room hearing the story first-hand.

You can fully connect with the vampire telling his story, and you can appreciate the soul-destroying side of a blood drinker’s eternal existence.

Whilst I enjoyed the second half of the book more than the first in terms of pacing, overall Interview with the Vampire is a brilliant story, and its characters are as intriguing as the vampire itself.

Looking forward to devouring all of the other books in this series.
