5.0 von 5 Sternen Das beste Buch der Serie
"Interview with a Vampire" war nett zu lesen und hat zum Kauf von "The Vampire Lestat" angeregt. Ich hatte erwartet, wieder ein Buch in der Hand zu halten welches nett zu lesen ist - von wegen, nicht nur nett sondern voellig genial! M.

3.0 von 5 Sternen What happened to the real Lestat?
First off, I want to apoligize for only giving this book three stars. But I had to take one away because Ann Rice decided that she wanted to change the lestat character.This is not the same evil and crazy Lestat from the first book. Unless Louis was a total moron, why would he describe Lestat in such a way if that was not the way he really was.I just think that what the...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Das beste Buch der Serie, 21. Oktober 2007
"Interview with a Vampire" war nett zu lesen und hat zum Kauf von "The Vampire Lestat" angeregt. Ich hatte erwartet, wieder ein Buch in der Hand zu halten welches nett zu lesen ist - von wegen, nicht nur nett sondern voellig genial! M. E. uebertrifft "The Vampire Lestat" das erste Buch der Serie bei weitem. Besonders fasziniert hat mich, wie Anne Rice es schafft, Lestat ploetzlich in ein ganz anderes Licht zu ruecken, sozusagen vom Anti-Held zum Held. Zum Inhalt ist eigentlich bereits alles gesagt worden sodass diesbezuegliche Ausfuehrungen ueberfluessig sind - ich kann nur wiederholen: besser als der Vorgaenger.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An ode to Lestat, and his creator, Anne Rice, 11. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I saw the movie first, two days later I bought the book, a week later I bought the other three Vampire Chronicles. The Vampire Lestat is now my all time favorite book. It has been on the shelf for three years now, it may be time to read it again. What a beautiful enticing masterpiece. What a character! When I saw Lestat on the big screen (my compliments to Tom Cruise, he doesn't excite me at all in other movies, but in this movie he played a very convincing Lestat) I knew I wanted more. First IWTV, main character poor suffering Louis. Then the others, all featuring Lestat. I've never been in love with a fictional character before, but Lestat certainly caught my fancy. Delicious how he plays with the other characters, how we get to know his arrogance, sexuality, sensuality, intelligence and beauty. The best part is that he thrills men and women alike. My compliments to Anne Rice, for creating such a bi-sensual novel, I've read a lot of books, but never have I encountered a book that so fits my needs, grasping me, making me wish to be part of that world (though certainly not a vampire, rather a part of the talamasca)! Please more, feed my brains, this is the best of fantacy, horror, thriller, comedy, drama, and romance, all put into one genre, that of Anne Rice!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The book is wonderfull, 26. November 2002
This was the first book of the Vampire Chronicles, I read and it made me addicted to the whole world of Anne Rice's Vampires!
It's the freedom of flying throgh the darkness...
an eternal romance with death ...
an eternal battle between good and bad in each vampire's soul...
Rules don't matter in this world...
only the heart matters!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Schauerhaft fesselde Vampiergeschichte mit Liebe zum Detail, 25. Juli 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Keine Vergleich zu bisherigen Vampiergeschichten. Diesen Buch ist ein Klassiker mit einer Wahnsinns Mischung aus Spannung und Gänsehaut. Wer Interview mit einem Vampier kennt wird es lieben. Die Geschichte des Lestard ist so faszinieren und detailgenau geschrieben, das man Sympathie für ihn entwickelt und in Lestard nicht nur das Mordende Wesen sieht. Ein Muss für Vampier Fans.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Rice Should Have Started Clean, 13. Juli 2000
There are certain problems with this book. I loved the first novel in this series, "Interview With The Vampire", but Rice made a mistake I think, in making this book a continuation of her previous one. I think it would have been a much, much better book if she had started clean. For example, a great deal of what one had to believe about Louis and Lestat in the first book had to be not only suspended, but actually reversed in this one for the story to make any sense. In "Interview" Lestat is portrayed as a childish, vengeful, sadistic man with no feeling or depth whatsoever. Here he is shown as the "vampire's vampire" -- a man of unusual depth (which unfortunately doesn't stop his constant immaturity from getting the better of him), and Louis is shown to be a weak, vacillating, pathrtic creature -- far removed from the tragic figure that he was in the first novel. The series sort of loses its integrity after this. Also, many of the characterisations are hard to believe . . . Lestat (pre-vampiric) and his friend get drunk and spend the night in some sort of existential angst moaning about philosophy. Trust me, this is NOT what drunk teenage males think of! The vampire is also nearly elevated to the status of a god, being able to fly and being virtually indestructable, but still beins concerned with the pettiest of human problems. Lestat simply seems to waste his immortality. The invulnerability of the characters makes all of the shenannigans that they go through seem rather pointless. Instead of using his dark gift to elevate himself and understand life, Lestat prefers to waste his time in childish pursuits that are curiously pointless. So why the four stars? Well, Rice IS an excellent writer. The book does captivate one and draws a person into the drama. She writes with a lushness that any romantic writer would envy. The story is great, but the near hero-worship of Lestat seems absurd, and the inconsistencies with the first novel really did take away from the book's value.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Godiva Chocolate Melting in Your Mouth...Creamy!, 11. Juli 2000
I first read "The Vampire Lestat" about seven or eight years ago. Since then, I have become a big fan of Anne Rice's novels, and this book in particular has become one of my favorites. "The Vampire Lestat" is an exquisitely worded novel about a mortal who becomes a vampire after killing a pack of wolves in the forests in pre-Revolutionary France. In the book, Lestat narrates his "life" after transformation. Those of you who are not familiar with Anne Rice's style of writing might be rolling your eyes right now and saying, "Oh, brother! Not another cheesy romance novel?" Well, you would be wrong! Rice writes in a way that makes your mouth salivate for more of her juicy morsels. Her words drip with richness and clarity. When she describes Lestat feeding upon his victims, Magnus' leap into the fire, or Armand's underground coven, you can envision her images so clearly it is as if you are actually there. Her language is so lush and awash with beauty that it seduces you and blinds you to the atrocities of the events within this book. This is not a cheapie dime-store romance novel or even a love story. It is a seduction of your imaginaiton. Succumb to it and read this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lestat: The All Time Great Anti-Hero, 4. Juli 2000
Von 
Cody Carlson (Salt Lake City, UT United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
'The Vampire Lestat' is a wonderful work of fiction that takes the reader through centuries of undead history. The story revolves around the adventures of the newly-created Vampire Lestat and his quest to understand his demonic origins. His quest takes him around the world and back through time as other, older Vampires share with him their secrets. In 'Lestat' we see a much different being than was presented to us in 'Interview with a Vampire.' Rather than the cocky, vain, unfeeling Vampire that we had known Lestat tells his story with humility and an almost human fraility. Rice's sensual writing style and her unwavering ability to probe the darker sides of the human condition make her an entertaining and thought-provoking author. The Vampire Chronicles are truly great works of fiction and 'The Vampire Lestat' may be the best of the series.

Anne Rice is a master of setting a scene, she makes you feel that you are truly in it. And when you add to that her sensual and engrossing characters, quite a potion is brewed. Very intoxicating...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nice enough to read, 29. Juni 2000
Well.. when I started reading it I was looking quite forward to it, thinking that i would finish it in a week or soo... wasn't like that. The book starts up quite nicely but then it slows down, we become involved with Lestat's feelings a bit too much, then Armand comes along. That's when the fun starts, it took me a week to get there and as soon as i started reading that, in 2 or 3 days i was finished. I the plot is awesome from then on. How Lestat looses everyone and then gets them back, how the Enkil is jealous of the Akasha and Lestat and how Marius plays them. It's also fun to listen as vampires speak about the children of the millenia and other myths like that and then pick up a book(i.e. Pandora) and learn about them... We also get some insight on what is happening to Louis in the present as he goes with Lestat to his concert. If it wasn't for the slowness in the start/middle i would have given it 5 stars. But 4 is good. Otherwise, it's quite a nice read

4.0 von 5 Sternen Horror?, 27. Juni 2000
Anyone who enjoys Rice's work will esteem this volume as one of her most riveting and mesmeric creations. I think, however, that the people who would benefit most from readng this novel are those who consider Rice's work as 'horror', and avoid it for that reason. This is not genre horror! It is literature, fantastical, dark, philosophical literature. It is a tale about a vampire, one of the living dead - someone who once was human but no longer is. Yet this novel actually conjures more questions and promotes more affection for our own humankind than the majority of modern 'realistic' fiction. Rice has a wonderful sense of what makes us humna, of the effect that the age we live in has upon us, and she uses the guise of an immortal to demonstrate this with great sensitivity. The differences between this work and "Interview" are manifold and although many fans of Rice became so enamoured of the remarkable Lestat that they couldn't stand 'Interview', I find that reading 'Interview' over again and then going back to Lestat makes one appreciate Rice's characters and writing skill even more.
