Morgan H. reviewed Anne Rice's The Vampire Lestat: A Graphic Novel on
Lestat. The vampire hero of Anne Rice's enthralling new novel is a creature of the darkest and richest imagination. Once an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the demonic, shimmering 1980's, he rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his eternal, terrifying existence. His is a mesmerizing story- passionate, complex, and thrilling.
This is of the back of the book.
I love Anne Rice's novels. But this one drug on a bit. It's still interesting non the less. I think most will enjoy it.
The illustrations are very 80s. The story begins in the late 80s with Lestat, tall, blond, and handsome, a world-renowned rock star. His gifts are timeless, his youth never withers. But he was not always the powerful and famous child of darkness. Before his long earth-encrusted sleep, he was an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-Revolutionary France. It was then that he came face-to-face with the incarnation of evil and the temptations of love that he has ravenously pursued through time. Where it has led him and what he has become is the heart of the tale that has captured millions of readers.
The scenes illustrated in this graphic novel are quite explicit and are not intended for young readers.
