Praise for The Vampire Lestat
 
“Frightening, sensual . . . Anne Rice will live on through the ages of literature. . . . To read her is to become giddy as if spinning through the mind of time, to become lightheaded as if our blood is slowly being drained away.”—San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Fiercely ambitious, nothing less than a complete unnatural history of vampires.”—The Village Voice
 
“Brilliant . . . its undead characters are utterly alive.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Luxuriantly created and richly told.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Amazing book

Back before Twilight there was Lestat. This is the way vampires should behave. Love it twenty years ago and it holds up today.

My favorite of her stories

I loved Frank Muller's readings, but feel that Simon Vance, a long time favorite on other audio works, does an equally superb job with his versions. The production is superior to the two previous narrations, which makes this book by far the best option, even if you can find Mr Muller's any more.

my favorite book of the chronicles, but...

Lestat is my favorite of the books, but I won't buy this audiobook out of respect of Frank Muller. NO ONE will ever top how he read those first four books. In this new verison, this guy reads too fast and he sounds like he's trying too hard to apply an accent to his voice.
