Anne Rice's infamous vampire Lestat is the original "Vampire crush" he woos his audience and his public as unapologetically as he does his victims. It is easy to fall under the "glamour" of the fiendishly charismatic Lestat as he unfolds his life to the reader, in an intimate and poetic narration / re-examination of his past and present day (20th Century) Life.

The reader will find themselves transported to that dingy New Orleans Hotel room where the first installment : " Interview with the Vampire" started, you'll become "the interviewer;" who's immediately smitten by his beauty; then terrified by his fiendish demeanor, and candor. Your heart will skip several beats as Lestat's recounts his last night as a human, as he shares his grief for the life and loves he's lost. Part of you will want to scream and run from the room in terror; yet you will find yourself fantasizing about letting him take you in his arms for that fatal last kiss.

Lestat's chronicle will re-awaken deliciously dark desires, and even philosophical re-examination of those uncomfortable questions about life, human existence, and " the meaning of all" (only if you want it to, like I do).

To me, Anne Rice's Lestat is a personification of what's both good and bad about humanity, and the individual's search for significance. Love him, hate him, or fear him, bet you cannot help empathizing with Lestat's reluctant bloodlust, as well as well as his conflicted drive for love, fame, acceptance, and even"Sainthood."

Lestat the cynical 15th century vampire who was unwillingly bestowed "the gift/curse" of vampiric immortality struggles to hold on to what's left of his humanity, morality, and soul in an increasingly changing world?

Through the eyes of The Vampire Lestat, and his cohorts, the reader is taken on journeys backwards and forward through time to share in the many adventures of Lestat and the other inhabitants of this preternatural parallel universe, where vampires, witches, demons, and spirits abound; Where the lines between good and evil; heroism and Villainy; hedonism and religion are skillfully blurred then redrawn. Underscoring the "self evident'" truths about humanity's frailty and our search for love- the only truly immortal gift.

The Vampire Chronicles are my favorite works of Anne Rice's, and I have read just about everything by her including biographies. To me Rice is the best Writer in this genre, her works are definitely not just " blockbuster fluff". Yes they are highly addictive and enjoyable, but I found this series to be well researched, prosaic and pleasantly philosophical at times. It's the definitive "Vampire" series, and all others are poor imitations (IMHO).

I didn't rate it 5/5 stars only because Rice failed to deliver on hers/ Lestat's implicit promise for an equally great sequel/ revamped "Vampire Chronicle" after " Queen of the Damned", subsequent attempts like "The New Vampire Chronicles" didn't quite deliver. She should really consider bringing Lestat into the 21st Century-I am really eager to hear his commentary on life in today's World. ( )
