Interview with a Vampire
To Change things up a little bit we are going focus on one of the most fascinating creatures of the night. The Vampire, and which book sums up the devious, conniving, romantic beast; none other then Interview With The Vampire by Anne Rice.
This book is just as it sounds, Louis de Pointe du Lac is a 200-year-old vampire from Louisiana and tells a young reporter about his entire life story throughout the book. This is book is the foundation of all vampire lore besides maybe Bram Stokers Dracula.
Louis explains how powerful and immortal vampires really are. To Louis knowledge the really only weakness vampires have is the sun; not wooden stakes, poisoned blood, garlic or crosses can kill the vampires. Anne Rice’s vampires are pretty amazing and complex; we are introduced to Lestat de Lioncourt, who is one of the coolest, badass characters I have ever read. Lestat created Louis and goes a bit crazy when Louis does not want to live the life Lestat has been forcing him to. Louis travels to France trying to figure out his life and find other vampires.
The only problem I had with this book is that Louis is a bit whinny about his life and what has happened to him. He is the main character in this book but Lestat upstages Louis it is no surprise that the book immediately following this is called The Vampire Lestat.
