D'oh! I quickly looked through the book, looked at the cover and saw: "haunted", "New Orleans", "Guide" and bought it. I am so silly. I didn't finish reading the rest of the title. Damn you key words!!

Anyway, while it is a very well written, informative book on the history of local buildings and locations in New Orleans, it did not discuss the actual haunted history or origins of the tales. Also, as the full title states, all of the locations are connected to Anne Rice books. And while I was a b

Recommends it for: First time New Orleans visitors and/ or vampires.
Being only a mild Anne Rice fan, I enjoyed this book more for it's comprehensive history of NOLA than for the vampire trivia.
Definitely worth a read if you are visiting the city for the first time. Despite the changes to the area after Katrina, a decent amount of the information is still correct.

I read this book on the plane ride to New Orleans, so it was fun to learn about some of the sights I planned to visit. It was published in 1995, so it's obviously pre-Katrina and a bit outdated in general. However, most of the sights are still around. Also, the book is not centered on Anne Rice's novels, which is a good since I've never read anything by Rice. It's really more of a handy visitor's guide to the city.

Read this book before I went to New Orleans and it was very helpful. The book makes the city come alive. Love this book!

An interesting and informative book about Anne Rice's collection of Vampire and Witches novels, along with details of popular locations, restaurants, sections, and more of New Orleans.

I bought this book before my one and only trip to new orleans when I was nineteen. my description of the city was a magical creepiness, and this book made it even more so.
