This story was told by the same guy who had read the audiobook for The Gunslinger by Stephen King. It was a really good narration he really puts you into the mind of Lestat. A tale of the coming of age/vampire of Lestat, you are taken through different timelines of his life through centuries. It was a very deep memoir of his, Anne rice really knows how to use words elegantly in this story. There were times that the life story became a bore and felt like he was self loathing. It brings me back to the Dexter books and his insight as a killer and all his dark passenger rambles. I enjoyed the first book Interview with a vampire more.

Lou Ok. I would like to see what Queen of the damned would be like, the movie was ok.

Kristin Rose Queen of the Damned is amazing! Soooooo much better than the movie. Anne Rice creates her own myths. She writes the entire unnatural history of vampires and demons in Queen and it is stunning! I highly recommend it

Ashley I remember in Interview with the Vampire
Louis made the remark about Lestats Father....
How could he be Centuries old???
Great review !!!
