Somewhat scary and creepy. If only I didn't have the mental image of Lestat - which Anne Rice did well - as homosexual, this might actually have had a spot in my favorites shelf.

Lestat's experience as a human again cracked me up a bit. He kept whining on and on about how the human body he inhabited sucked.

I've read this book a couple years back and I've read the first few Vampire Chronicles as well. I remember how much I liked the first three books but then when the rest of the books came, I wa

Once again we delve into the life of sensous Lestat with his recent craving for the ability to experience the carnal pleasures that were denied him since the 18th century, and the resulting aftermath, knowing Lestat we will be expecting a carnage, and at the same time find a place in our hearts to pity him, as we did the talented Mr Ripley.

It was interesting but sick in a way. It was dirty I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under eighteen, or at least under sixteen.

I love Anne Rice's novels but this graphic novel left me flat. I didn't think the artwork reflected how I would have expected the vampires to appear and the graphics didn't depict anything that would add layers to the story as per other graphic novels I have read. The story seemed too bare to stand alone and in all it was a disappointing read. 1 for effort plus 1 for the numerous naked male bodies.
Nice, fun, fast, and funny read.
Anne being wonderful as per.
Anyone who reads Anne Rice knows very well that her books are either totally awesome! Or totally terrible. There doesn't seem to be an in-between with her. Tale of the Body Theif is one of the good ones. Of all the books in the Vampire Chronicles, this one is the most "fun". It's kind of a "Freaky Friday" story, where we get to see Lestat try to cope with "life" back inside a living human body. I enjoyed it.

Ann Rice is another one of my favorite authors, she is very descriptive in her novels. The Tale of The Body Thief was one of the Vampire chronicles that she wrote. I was intrigued by the way she described how Lastat learned how to achieve OBE out of body experience and how he learned to leave one body for the other and his experiences as a human again. The brat Prince , gotta love him.

I read this years ago and the only thing I remember about it is the smell of cat pee. Everything else was just sort of a genre thriller without the visceral or boundary pushing touches that make a good Rice novel. Whoever compared it to the Love Boat was not far off.
I remember reading this a long time ago, just never marked it "read". I so love Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. I think, over time, the characters became real to me, I couldn't wait for the next book!
I remember reading this, I couldn't put it down.
Sharon Desruisseaux
Loved this book as I do anything by this amazing author! This was a rish departure from the vampire chronicles. She added her famous vampires in to add to the enjoyment of the read! Highly recommended!
In my opinion the most unimportant of the Vampire Chronicles books. Lestat's in it, but it doesn't matter. Re-read The Vampire Lestat instead.
The artwork is only mediocre, but this is a really nice, self-contained Anne Rice vampire story. I am glad I gave it my time.
Lora Allen
Really intense and kinda weird at the same time but very good. Lestat was amazing as well as all the other characters.
Ruud Van der vliet
This one for me was difficult to get through. Maybe because it moved away a bit from the main characters.
K.P. Taskila
Interesting beginning even though I thought Lestat was an IDIOT. Ends as Vampires on the Love Boat.
This is probably my favorite of the vampire chronicles. You can't help but love Lestat.
Samara Gagne
This was one of my favorite in the series. It was profound, paranormal and edgy.
Antonio Polo
Fantaseoso, pero interesante el poder cambiar de cuerpos con los Vampiros...
Anne Rice has got to me one of my favorite authors of all time.
