Book review of The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice

To start with this review is that Rice writes this tale in first person and does an amazing job at doing it. For the story that she tells, this book answered some questions that I had from Interview with the Vampire about Lestat.

The story is well written and Rice shows that she is able to write with the best of the authors of the world. The telling is done from the character of Lestat and he takes you to where he is from and all the changes that he goes throughout the years. The beginning of the book Rice sets up what is going to be told in the book. This was needed to show the back story so those who haven't read Interview with the Vampire will understand Lestat.

For the quality of the work, Rice makes the book an easy read and it did at times keep my attention to where I would read for hours. She does paint the scenes very well into your mind and it does make you feel as though you are right there with Lestat.

If you are looking for something different to read from your normal books, I would recommend this book. The first thing is that reading Interview with the Vampire before you read this book will help you understand Lestat more.

The next book that I will be reading is Red Dragon by Thomas Harris.
