This copy has a different cover from the one shown.

The blurb:

'One of the most wonderful, erotic, sensual books ever written' Sting

In a darkened room a young man sits telling the macabre and eerie story of his life ... the story of a vampire, gifted with eternal life, cursed with an exquisite craving for human blood.

'A spine-chilling nightmare ... highly accomplished ... an impressive feat of imagination' Sunday Times

'Compulsively readable ... From the beginning we are hypnotized ... The reader feels he has glimpsed experiences no mortal ever had'
Chicago Tribune

'Thrilling ... A strikingly original work of the imagination ... Sometimes horrible, sometimes beautiful, always unforgettable'
Washington Post'

I don't know who wrote this blurb, but I don't think it was someone who knew what the word 'exquisite' actually means.

This is a paperback copy from Warner Books, published in ... hm ... I think this is a reprint from 1995. The book was originally published in 1976.

The first book of the Vampire Chronicles, this is Anne Rice's much-praised debut novel, which I never really liked all that much ... although I have to concede it's very well written. Possibly I know too much about Rice as the book seems far too intimate and personal, I'm not comfortable reading it. Louis, the main character - the interviewee :-) - is also a very annoying character, a spineless whiner whom I have never liked. Lestat is my favorite. ;-) I think this is definitely worth reading, but it's far from the strongest in the series.

I got this book at a flea market at Ellingsrud elementary school in Oslo on Saturday, April 21st, 2007.
