I can quote it by heart. :)
I can't say much about VtM: It's my favorite RPG book, for starters, and I have used it and read it whole and in pieces for almost eight years now. Vampire has developed a personality of it's own in my eyes and it has helped me shape many of my aesthetical preferences, for example. I wouldn't recommend it lightly, though. Vampire is a game for adults and requires maturity and time to digest and work until you learn to see it in the Punk-Gothic setting it was meant to be played with.
If you have a perchant for horror stories and gloomy settings, jump in and play one of The Damned. You may just find, while roleplaying, that a few of those inner devils you character drags around are not entirelly made up. Or not entirelly his.
