    Description

    More of The Vampire Chronicles - where dark pleasures and glorious decadence abound. Anne Rice once again creates the hypnotic, mythical world of the undead. Here is the story of the dazzling and seductive vampire Lestat, whom we first perceive as evil incarnate. We travel with Lestat from the licentious Paris of the 18th century to the pagan courts of ancient Egypt to the frenzied 20th century world of rock superstardom, as he elusively searches for the roots and meaning of his own immortality. As he does so, our sympathy is more and more engaged and we come to recognize that he is, in fact, a questing romantic, a vampire hero - with his own strange and passionate sense of courage and morality.

    The Vampire Lestat is Volume 2 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.

    Good Story .. Bad Music

    I listened to this as an abridged audio book and I very disappointed with the violin music that should have been in the background. Loud and screeching I think are two good words to describe the 'music' and usually music stops just after the reader starts speaking, but this one didn't and it kept coming back. The violin was in the foreground when it was playing and was really awful to listen to while trying to hear the story.

    Ignoring the Violin music ... I still did not enjoy this one as much as the Interview With A Vampire. Also, because it was abridged, I think they took too much out. If I had realized it was abridged before I got it, I probably won't have bought it.

    Sometimes the second in the series can never be as good as the first, but I always hold out hope that the author has learned better writing and descriptive skills and so it 'could' be better. That being said, I think I would still read another in her vampire series. I might even go and get the actual book and read it to see how much I missed.

    Classic Anne Rice novel!

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Vampire Lestat to be better than the print version?

    No, I think both complement each other. The rpint version lends itself to create an aura of what one would consider Lestat whereas the narrator of the audiobook puts his own spin on bringing the character to life for us.

    What other book might you compare The Vampire Lestat to and why?

    No books can compare to this wonderous tale of wunderlust and everything else in between. I did see myself drawing comparisons of Lestat and his personality to characters like Duncan McLeod, the Highlander and the Crow.

    What does Michael York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought the tale to life.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the scene in the crypt with Akasha and Akil, and Marcus.

    Any additional comments?

    The violin transitions in the audiobook deserve to be toned down a bit so you can better engage your listening of the narrator and the tale. It could sometimes be very verbose and distracting.

    Love this book

    This is the best book of all, in my opinion. Michael York does an excellent job of narrating. The only complaint I have is that I expected the narrator to have a french accent as Lestat was from France. That's just me being picky though.

    An older recording, but still worth it

    As other reviewers have noted, the violin music was annoying. It was recorded too loudly, making it difficult to hear the narrator. But fortunately, you only hear the violin a few times during the story. If you're used to hearing more recently recorded audio tapes like I was, you'll be a little disappointed in the quality of this one at first. But you'll quickly be pulled into Lestat's world, leaving all quality-related issue behind. I thought the narrator did a wonderful job. A good "read"!

    I actaully own these on cassette

    This was my first audiobook purchase ever. The cassettes actually came in the coffin-shaped cardboard box as pictured here. These abridged versions might not be up to the standards of modern audiobooks as audio has really taken off in the last twenty years, but these audiobooks still are worth their weight in my opinion. It's the abridged recordings of the first three Anne Rice books in the Vampire Chronicles read by Michael York. I found the abridgments and the narration to be superb and even though there might be better-unabridged versions out of these books today, these still do the books justice and I can recommend them especially for car or train rides.

    Be aware this is the Abridged Version

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lestat is by far my favorite character of all the Vampire Chronicles. He's brash, bold, and insolent but also very human (for a vampire) and understandable.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to the whole thing in all one sitting and then was very confused. Went back and realized it was the Abridged version.
