1.0 von 5 Sternen Very disappointing
I adore Miss Rice's "The Witching Hour" and so curled up for what I thought would be an equally good read. What a disappointment. The writing is quite banal, and unlike some of her other writings you never get the opportunity to know the characters in any depth. I was so disappointed that I didn't finish the book, which is rare for me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Atmosphärisch und sinnlich - Grandios!, 25. September 2007
San Francisco, 1976. Der 200 Jahre alte Vampir Louis erzählt dem jungen Journalisten Daniel seine Lebensgeschichte. Dieser will ihm anfangs nicht so recht glauben, aber Louis' Erzählung über Liebe und Verrat, Trauer und Hoffnung schlägt ihn immer mehr in den Bann.

Mit ihrem allerersten Roman hat Anne Rice bereits einen modernen Klassiker geschaffen. Louis' romantische und erotische, oftmals aber auch tragische Geschichte entführt den Leser in das New Orleans des 18. Jahrhunderts. Rice schafft es eine fesselnde Atmosphäre, ebenso düster wie sinnlich, herauf zu beschwören, die in der moderen Literatur ihresgleichen sucht. Louis selbst ringt mit seinem Dasein als Vampir: Um zu Überleben muss er töten, doch ihn quält sein zutiefst menschliches Gewissen. Von Lestat, dem Vampir, der ihn geschaffen hat, hat er bald genug und so verliebt er sich in Claudia, das Vampirkind, die er gemeinsam mit Lestat zum Vampir gemacht hat. Doch diese Gemeinschaft zerbricht und Louis und Claudia gehen nach Paris wo sie auf Armand treffen, einen jahrhundertealten Vampir, zu dem sich Louis hingezogen fühlt.

Die autobiographischen Züge des Romans sind unübersehbar: Anne Rice begann mit dem Schreiben nach dem Tod ihrer kleinen Tochter, die an einer seltenen Blutkrankheit litt. Das Mädchen findet sich wieder in dem Vampirkind Claudia, dass nicht erwachsenwerden kann und für immer in dem Körper eines Kindes gefangen ist. In der Beziehung zwischen Lestat und Louis werden die Eheprobleme von Anne und Stan Rice nach dem Tod der Tochter deutlich: Louis ist hin- und hergerissen zwischen gehen und bleiben, Lestat oft verständnislos und grausam (Interessanter Weise wird Lestat in den weiteren Romanen der Reihe völlig anders dargestellt, dort ist Lestat der strahlende Held, "der Macher" und Gewinner).

Ich kann dieses Buch jedem empfehlen, der schon immer einmal eine Vampirgeschichte aus der anderen Perspektive lesen wollte - der des "Ungeheuers", dass mit seinem Schicksal hadert. Der Roman ist tiefgründig und sicher keine leichte Kost, gibt Anstoß zum Nachdenken und Hinterfragen. Wer Probleme mit Liebesbeziehungen zwischen Männern hat sollte sich das Lesen vielleicht zweimal überlegen - es wird zwar nichts explizit dargestellt, aber die knisternde Spannung zwischen Louis und Lestat oder auch Louis und Armand ist nicht zu übersehen.
Das Werk im englischen Original zu lesen hat seinen Reiz, aber da Rice einen sehr breiten und bisweilen auch recht speziellen Wortschatz verwendet sind sehr gute Englischkenntnisse fast ein Muss, wenn man den Roman richtig geniesen will.

Noch ein Wort für all jene, die bereits den Film kennen: Das Buch ist besser. Auch wenn Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt und Kirsten Dunst sicherlich ganz hervoragende Arbeit leisten, an den fesselden Stil des Buches, an die Dramatik und an den sinnlichen Unterton des Buches kommt der Film nicht ran.

Eines kann ich versprechen: Jeder, der das Buch gelesen hat, wird sich wünschen, dass ein Vampir kommt und ihn beißt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Louis's legend comes alive..or maybe just back from the dead, 15. Juni 1998
I finished reading "Interview with the Vampire" a few minutes ago. I loved it. I read the last word, turned the last page, and sat there for a while; then I picked the book up and shook it, whispering, "More! I want more!" Thank God there's a whole series.
"Interview" is getting a great deal of hype because of the movie, but it deserves every bit of publicity it receives because it's simply the most gripping page-turner I've ever read. It doesn't really fit into a particular category, which is why many reviewers were disappointed with it. I think I enjoyed it so much because it was the first vampire book I've ever read (soon to be one of many), and when I picked it up, I didn't really know what to expect. "Interview" isn't straight horror, romance, or fantasy... It's all these and much more. Louis is beautiful and often surprising; it's not every day that one discovers a sweet, sensitive vampire. Sometimes his intense emotions reminded me of John Lang from "Islandia" ...but that's another story.
Several readers complained about the "needless homoerotic imagery" in this tale. This is the first time I've ever encountered the term, but I'm pretty sure I know what it means. Being a big fan of the homosexual arch-villians Kunzite and Zoisite in "Sailor Moon" (an anime cartoon, in case you're wondering), I don't have a problem with that sort of thing, but I can understand how other readers would find it disturbing. My advice: don't worry about it. Sit back, read, and enjoy the rest of the story.
Now you all know why, in art class, I made little clay statues of Claudia, Louis, and Lestat, and why, while hanging around at the Fish Market, I drew "Vampire Comics" on the back of the menu. "Interview with the Vampire" is right up on my shelf with all the other great classics like "Islandia," "Divine Comedy," and "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy." Quick... somebody ! find me a copy of "The Vampire Lestat"! Hurry, I'm desperate! ^_^

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interview With the Vampire, 23. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Interview with the Vampire (Taschenbuch)
I have read this book and several other of Anne Rice's, she shows the characters feelings and the depth they will go to attain their goal. Not just victims. Listat is an unusual person not just a vampire with feelings that didn't care about anything but his craving for blood. I first read the Vampire Chronicles and they were fabulous I could not put them down. I may not be an expert or a writer but I am good with books and reading and have a collection of over 10,000 books in mint condition many bought on the auction and many favorite authors. Anne Rice is a very favorite one. I am looking forward to Ms. Rice's comic's coming out so I can collect them all. I have been watching for them. I understand people who don't like a book for one reason or another but when they leave a negative feedback like the first one I saw it really isn't fair to the author or even giving her a chance because many people buy a book based solely on the synopsis. I believe it is unfair to the author and publsher.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Beginning, 17. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Interview with the Vampire (Taschenbuch)
Anne Rice establishes a strong framework with her first novel in the Vampire Chronicles series. I read this novel after finding the movie a delicious addition to the Vampire myth. Upon reading the book, I enjoyed every twist, turn, and detail that gave the book such a lush feel. I love this book simply because it establishes a world within a world: the character's are so colorful one cannot seem to place them anywhere else but in the world of fiction but the realistic settings and the provacative emotions make one think that these characters are real and that Lestat, Louis, and the others are real beings existing in our world.
This book I believe is our modern-day Dracula and a good read for anyone interested in vampires in general, but also for anyone interested in devastatingly human relationships, emotions, and struggles

1.0 von 5 Sternen I wish there were a "no star" rating., 29. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Interview with the Vampire (Taschenbuch)
"Interview With the Vampire" is a poorly written novel with a silly story as its basis. Only people who think they are vampires (or wish they were) will be be able to look past the fact that Rice has passed off one of those $2.99 romance novels as a weighty piece of fiction by simply making the characters "VAMPIRES!" As a native of Louisiana, I bought the book as a matter of pride. The story is set in our fairest gem, New Orleans (for at least part of the time) and so many New Orleanians gushed with praise over Rice's "Vampire Chronicles". Now I wish Anne Rice had chosen Hoboken or Carson City or anywhere else but here as her home.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible!, 3. November 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Interview with the Vampire (Taschenbuch)
This novel, "Interview with the Vampire", by Anne Rice, is by far one of the best book I've ever read. It started with a young boy interviewing a vampire, and the vampire related him the whole story of his life, how he became a vampire, his thrilling adventures through the centuries and his complex relationships with both the mortals and the immortals.
In my opinion, Anne Rice had done the best of jobs. The writing and the detailed descriptions, the composing of this novel, had brought out every emotion of the characters like the flick of a whip. The rage, the love, the hatred, the sufferings, the darkness, the pain and the terror, were all presented so vividly as if in front of my eyes, as if I were really part of the character.
I think Anne Rice had created the most successful characters. Throughout the whole book, you can really look at the conflicts between them. They are, somehow, attached or attracted by each other, the mortals and the immortals. Their love and hate and struggles go to such degrees, and yet limited by their nature, it was almost impossible to understand it at all. I believe Anne Rice had used those characters to express humanity, the whole plot was some kind of an irony. Something like a metaphor, though she exaggerated everything to make it poignant enough.
Not only were the characters a success, the time and place details were incredible. The costumes, ways of manner, history and every background changes as the years passed, and she made the backgrounds so realistic that I could almost feel everything surrounding me. I think Anne Rice had done such a great job that this book should be counted as literature.
After reading the last line of this novel, I was both stunned and fascinated, but somehow quite disturbed. It really took me some time and thoughts to understand the whole plot and to sort out the conflicts, especially at the ending. Thoroughly I truly enjoyed this dark, fascinating and moving tale. Even though it was a little disturbing, I really would recommend it to anybody.
OKay, above there is part of the book report I wrote on this book for English class. I just *LOVE* this book so much!! READ IT!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interview with the Vampire(1st Vampire Chronicles novel), 8. April 2000
The book that started it all. When I first read it, it enraptured me and I could not stop reading it! It focuses on the vampire Louis, a native of New Orleans(like the author)who originally came from Paris. After his religious brother's death, he is in deep pain and anguish. The ruthless vampire, Lestat, turns him into a vampire, opens his eyes to an all new world. Louis at first feeds upon animals such as rats, because of his fear of human death. His first "real" human taking was a young girl who's mother had just died of the plague named Claudia. Claudia at first seems to follow Lestat's ruthlessness, but soon becomes very emotionally attached to Louis. When Claudia becomes overwhelmed with love and need for her and Louis to be together, she kills Lestat(or so she thought...) They then retreat to Paris in search of other vampires. They find a theatre called the "Theatre des Vampires". Then they meet with a vampire named Armand. He is the leader of the other vampires there and he wants Louis, but not Claudia. Claudia all but forces Louis to make the woman Madeleine a vampire to watch after her because she knows that Armand wants her dead. And sure enough Claudia and Madeleine died. Louis then kills all of the vampires at the theater excluding Armand. Armand and he then travel all across the world after art. Then Louis' dispair harms yet again another loved one as Armand leaves him, forever. And that brings him to where he is now. BEWARE! I have not yet read the other Vampire Chronicle books but I VERY much intend to do so(I might just order 'em off this fine site!)and when I do read them be prepared because another review will be waiting...=)

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best book I've ever read.Haunting & Heartbreaking in 1!!, 2. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Interview with the Vampire was quite possibly the best book I have ever read. As I started to read this novel by Anne Rice (one of the greatest novelist of our time, in my oppinion.) I noticed from the very beginning that this novel was going to be different from all the past and current "cheesy" vampire novels you read. About killers who show no emotion. And live without a thought or care in the world. This novel is different in the way that it shows that even immortals can show emmotion. It made me think that the character's were actually real, that they were suddenly sprung into reality by each word that passed through my lips, or in my head. To be utterly honest, I barely sleept in the 4 days while reading INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE. The reason is?: I was always curious to see what Louie, Lestat, and Claudia were up to! It's that spellbounding! Louie with his deep love for Claudia, with his lingering mortal feelings and thoughs , Lestat with his ruthless intensity and longing for Louie, and Claudia with her split emotions (love/hate) towards Louie and pure hatred and despise for Lestat. It all made for an interesting, heartfelt, wonderful, facinating, enchanting, beloved, haunting, chilling, imaginative (well, you get the idea!) novel, which I will always hold close to my heart. Also which I will carry with me in my thoughts and mind ALWAYS.........Iam forever wondering what their (Lestat, Louie, Armand, and all the others) are doing while we mere MORTALS sleep. It makes you think, hmmmmm??? (I truely miss the trio of Louie, Lestat, and Claudia.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book to be savored, 3. März 2000
"Interview with the vampire" was my first Anne Rice's book and I've been enchanted with her dark universes and eloquent poetic-prose ever since.In fact, when I first started reading this book I couldn't put it down and I carried it with me everywhere I went. I wanted to finish it quickly and discover its end but at the same time I wanted to savor every word and when I did finish reading it, I turned it back and read it again.I believe that Anne Rice has created this universe of vampires with all their extra-senses and exaggerated feelings to depict humanity so charmingly and realistically. Her vampires are just close-up pictures of us, humans. In her book, she proves her magical ability to make you, so easily, fall in love with her creations and I've fallen so hopelessly in love with Louis with the very first few lines he spoke. He is the most human in her books. He is even at times more human than humans themselves. I've loved his sensitivity, his guilt, his melancholy, his hatred to himself, his torture by the hatred and the love he feels towards Lestat, his absolute love for Claudia despite all that she is, his confusion, his questions and I've loved him most of all for all what he is. But Louis is not the only reason for me to love this book.I love it for all its depth, all the questions it seems to raise and the silent quest for the truth behind all its confusion and dark world."Interview with the vampire" is a book of the heart. It is a book not to be simply read but reread again then again and again and savored with every reading.
