Published: First published in 1976
Genre: Vampires, Paranormal, Horror
Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, 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 senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write.
I wanted to read this book because it is a classic in the vampire genre.
The problem I had with this book is that it is so incredibly boring. I think it is the writing style. The words dragged on and on. A lot of words and nothing really happened in the story. And it got really repetitive. I zoned out a lot while I read, and started thinking about other things.
It is sad because the story is interesting. I especially liked the atmosphere in the book. I almost DNF (did not finish) this book, but I wanted to know what happened with Louis and the other character in the book. I found the characters interesting. So I choose to finish the story because of that.
And I got a bit curious about the next book about Lestrat. I want to hear his story. But I am not sure I will read it.
I gave this book 2 out of 5 stars.
