Outstanding. One of my favorite books -- terrifying and sensual. Lestat is both hard to like and irresistible. I think this is Rice at her finest.

Amazing story telling. After reading Interview with a Vampire, I could not stand Lestat. After reading this book, I fell in love with him.

I was instantly an Interview With the Vampire fan, so it was a given I would read this book. The first book makes you hate Lestat. This one will make you fall in love with him, even if you're digging your heels in to keep from it. Another classic from this fantastic writer.

This reader found it a little difficult to go from the deceiving spiteful Lestat in Interview to the glorious rockstar in this book. Overall the first book in the Chronicles was much better.

This book is an interesting read, it gives a more detailed idea of the character. You get a different side to the story that came before with out really going into it. It's written in a way that forces you to see from the characters point of view.

I have listened to the audio tape of Interview with a Vampire, but it did not prepare me for this story seen through LaStat's eyes. This book i9s one of the more "on the edge of my seat" books I have read in a long time. The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice are all MUST READ BOOKS!!!!

In her continuation of 'The Vampire Chronicles', Anne Rice explores the life and death of her main character Lestat, giving readers an anchor to which to tie his later experiences in other books while expanding on his dualistic nature. Told as more historical novel than straight vampire horrorfest, this novel sheds light, per se, on Lestat's compelling character and introduces amazing new ones, all while expanding the universe in which these tales are set. A chilling climax briefly reveals a disturbing aspect concerning the history of all vampires, told in its entirely in Book 3, but mostly this book is concerned with setting Lestat up as a more fully-realized character and as a bridge between Books 1 and 3. A great read!

I enjoyed this book far more than 'Interview with the Vampire,' where Lestat was made out to be the villain. We learn more about Lestat in this book and can't help but feel sorry for him. This story begins with the early education and adventures of Lestat, his coming of age, his fearlessness, his passion. We are with him as he receives The Dark Gift. We are with him as he passes The Dark Gift on to those he loves in order to save them, only to lose them in the end. We learn more about the ancient ones and Those Who Must Be Kept, as we follow Lestat throughout the centuries in search of answers, in search of love. We learn why he has so many enemies. The Vampire Lestat, the damnedest creature indeed. What will become of him?

The second title in Rice's classic and elegant take on those who drink the blood, this novel is a worthy prequel to Interview with the Vampire. It ably answers many of the questions raised in IWTV, and sets the stage for the third and final novel of the trilogy, The Vampire Armand. Ann Rice's style is easy to read, her details hang together and leave the reader satisfied that he has gotten a complete recitation of the story. Quite a satisfying read.

Well, you'd have to love Lestate to love the book! Similar to many of Anne Rice's characters - sometimes the fiend once had a heart too. No, not necesserily a love interest. Dreams, hopes and a way out...

If you want a better understanding of what made Lestat de Lioncourt a rockstar of a vampire, please read the book.

For years I have been saying this is my MOST FAVORITE book, and that still stands.

This isn't just about vampires at all, it is the life of a kid who has a "dark moment" when he realizes that death is real and could be the end of everything for him... then becomes a vampire and spends years trying to come to terms with the loneliness that comes with living forever and never finding someone who wants to stay his side as long as he wishes they would, not even his mother.

Beautifully written, I could read it over and over... and I probably will!

This is the second book in Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. My fiancee wanted me to read this series very badly, and I'm glad that he did. I absolutly LOVED this book, and couldn't seem to put it down. It took me 2 days to read it, but if I didn't have to work I'm sure I would have found it easier to finish it within that first day! Lestat is easily one of my favorite characters of all time now, as are many of the other characters in Rice's Vampire Chronicles.

I actually enjoyed this quite a bit - mostly because I grew to like the characters of the first book and the material was all new to me. As much as I didn't care for Lestat in the film, he was surprisingly charming in the book. This book had a more immediate feel than _Interview With The Vampire_ and that made it more enjoyable. Anne Rice's husband's poetry makes annoying chapter openers and I'm rather tired of the dragging nature of her writing and the way she skips over parts that I would like to hear more about. Still, I did enjoy it quite a bit - more than I thought I would.

After the spectacular debut of Interview with the Vampire in 1976, Anne Rice put aside her vampires to explore other literary interests--Italian castrati in Cry to Heaven and the Free People of Color in The Feast of All Saints. But Lestat, the mischievous creator of Louis in Interview, finally emerged to tell his own story in the 1985 sequel, The Vampire Lestat.
As with the first book in the series, the novel begins with a frame narrative. After over a half century underground, Lestat awakens in the 1980s to the cacophony of electronic sounds and images that characterizes the MTV generation. Particularly, he is captivated by a fledgling rock band named Satan's Night Out. Determined both to achieve international fame and end the centuries of self-imposed vampire silence, Lestat takes command of the band (now renamed "The Vampire Lestat") and pens his own autobiography. The remainder of the novel purports to be that autobiography: the vampire traces his mortal youth as the son of a marquis in pre-Revolutionary France, his initiation into vampirism at the hands of Magnus, and his quest for the ultimate origins of his undead species.

While very different from the first novel in the Vampire Chronicles, The Vampire Lestat has proved to be the foundation for a broader range of narratives than is possible from Louis's brooding, passive perspective. The character of Lestat is one of Rice's most complex and popular literary alter egos, and his Faustian strivings have a mythopoeic resonance that links the novel to a grand tradition of spiritual and supernatural fiction.

This sequel to Interview with the Vampire takes the world and setting established in the previous book and pumps it up several notches. The story of Louis's sire, Lestat, takes us further back in time, as well as forward to when Lestat reawakens and decides to become a rock star. An incredibly rich character study written in beautiful prose, it is enjoyable even for those who might not consider themselves vampire fans.

Je suis le vampire LeStat (du stat)

Je sais, tous les revues qui portent mon nom sont en anglais... ou presque. C'est la raison pour laquelle j'ai décidé, moi, Lestat de Lioncourt, d'arrêter d'aller me frotter le cul au panicaut (vieille expression signifiant: ne rien faire) et d'en construire un en français... ma douce langue maternelle.

Qui sois?

Lestat : C'est un homme de grande taille, ayant les cheveux blonds et des yeux gris vert. Lestat de Lioncourt est un des vampires les plus intelligents, naturellment. Il est originaire de Paris et est né dans une famille de nobles ruinés en province. Il est très fier de sa condition de mort-vivant.
Il use le don obscur d'une manière très habile et toujours à son avantage, il s'en sert pour : lire dans les pensées, dominer par son esprit, léviter... Il a tiré une grande expérience des nombreux voyages à travers le monde : Grèce, Italie, Espagne, Egypte, Roumanie, Hongrie, Etats-Unis...
