Anne Rice's compulsively readable novel is arguably the most celebrated work of vampire fiction since Bram Stoker's Dracula was published in 1897. As the Washington Post said on its first publication, it is a 'thrilling, strikingly original work of the imagination ...sometimes horrible, sometimes beautiful, always unforgettable'.Hide synopsis

There was too much time inside Louis's melancholy mind and not enough about the world at large. I preferred The Vampire Lestat because it had a more active narration as opposed to the lament always present in this book.
That said, still well-written.
This book will absolutely suck you in and you'll never want to put it down (except to read the other books in the series). Anne Rice's amazing use of detail paints a perfect picture in your mind and its like your actually there. You'll fall in love with the handsome vampire Louis as he tells his "life" story to a young, at first unbelieveing reporter. You'll also meet many other interesting characters such as my favorite Lestat (whom you may not like at first but keep reading the books and loving him is inevitable) and the child vampire Claudia. I promis you, you wont regret buying this book, and odds are you'll read it more than once!
Anne Rice spins such an intricate story in this book. You are quickly sucked into Louis' world and the thought of leaving it is almost unbearable. There are some points where Anne goes into so much detail that it becomes a little bit of a dry read, but those details are essential to this intricate story. I fell in love with Louis and felt so sorry for him. I fell in love with Lestat, yet hated him so much. I would have to say this is my absolute favorite book. I have read it dozens of times and can't wait to read it again.
