    Description

    Once again, as she did in Interview with the Vampire, Anne Rice reveals the startling world of the undead. This world of dark pleasures and glorious decadence comes to life in a tale that takes you back 6,000 years to the shocking creation of the first vampire - Akasha, Queen of the Damned. Akasha's story unfolds across the ages and around the world - from dawn of civilization to the present day, from Egypt to the Himalayas, to Paris, Peru, and finally to California. There, Akasha faces her ancient, vengeful enemy, and the fate of all the living dead - and all the living as well - is decided.

    Here is a tale hypnotically, chillingly told. You have to hear it to believe it!

    The Queen of the Damned is Volume 3 of The Vampire Chronicles. For a full selection of Anne Rice programs and to hear the author answering fan mail, visit the Anne Rice store.

    Poor recording quality makes this a poor choice

    I have been an Audible subscriber for over a year now, and this is by far the worst sounding book I have purchased to date. Even downloading it at quality 4, it is distorted with static and tinny. I wish that I had listened to the sample before purchasing this book as the quality greatly effects the emersion of one in the story.

    Audio Quality.....BAD

    I read this book a long time ago and was looking forward to revisiting the audio version. The sound quality is TERRIBLE. I have never had an issue with any audiobooks and have always been VERY happy but this was the pits.....there is a background buzz and it sounds like it was recorded in a cave. I did not care for the abridged version as it jumps and seems broken. I couldn't even make it through the first hour it was so bad.

    Beautiful but hard to follow

    As a long time fan of Anne Rice and her Vampire books, I delved quickly into Queen of the Damned. While I enjoyed the story, I found it at times very difficult to follow. The ABRIDGED recording seemed to jump at innoportune places and left me wondering what I had missed. Those seeking more insight into the lives of certain vampires, such as Pandora, Louis or Maruis, will find that there place has largely been cut from the story. Fans may want to wait for an unabridged recording to come out. Or read the book.

    THIS IS NOT THE FULL BOOK

    I had no idea this version was abridged and could not figure out why it seemed to be missing whole parts of the story. Very important parts. I am so mad that I purchased and listened to this. The narrators were absolutely awful as well. Now I have to purchase the full version and listen again to the parts I’ve already heard. Do NOT purchase this version!!! I can’t believe they didn’t at least advertise this as abridged.

    Garbage

    I bought this thinking it was the WHOLE book. The violin music randomly played was distracting and the fact it was a very condensed version was a waste of money. Too bad I can’t get credit back.

    Best of the series

    If you could sum up The Queen of the Damned in three words, what would they be?

    Best in series

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Queen of the Damned?

    When the queen confronted the mountain top vampire in India

    Have you listened to any of Kate Nelligan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    n/a

    Who was the most memorable character of The Queen of the Damned and why?

    The queen herself because as evil as she was, you could understand her thoughts and reasoning.

    Any additional comments?

    I know the die-hard Ann Rice fans, at the time of this book's release, hated it, but I thought she'd topped herself.

    Great book, poor audio quality

    I love this book. In fact it's one of my favorites of the series. However, the recording quality is terrible. It has a lot of static and distortion and is hard to hear escpecially when the violins are playing.

    Not enjoyable

    I read this book once before but I was not interested in it this time. the reader did not capture my attention and I did not care for the violin playing in the reading.
