Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

This week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the gothic horror novel, Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice. This book was published in May 1976 by Knopf and has a page count of 371 pages. The audiobook is read by Simon Vance and is 14 hours & 24 minutes in length. The following overview is provided from the B&N page: Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly sensual, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force—a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the sense.

So here’s the thing. I think I waited too long to finally read the book of a film that I adored. Because by the time I got around to reading this, I found little to enjoy. There were parts that I liked and enjoyed more than the movie interpretation. There are also high-quality queer fantasy novels written by queer authors that I would rather spend my money on. This is a one-and-done for me. I do not recommend it.

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.

Tomorrow for the Missing Person Saturday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Mercedes Zaevon Toliver. Next week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the historical fiction novel, The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. Until then keep reading on; Nerd out!
