28 DoBR: Interview with the Vampire (The Vampire Chronicles, Book 1) by Anne Rice

This book is one of the most important books, to me, I own. I know it’s a beloved book in many households. Just about everyone I’ve ever talked to has read it and/or have seen the movie created of the same title. Interview with the Vampire came into my life when I was pretty young, probably younger than I should’ve been reading it, but to my credit, my mother did buy me it when I asked. I remember the cover is what caught my attention, at first. It was so beautiful to me and I couldn’t help but become curious about the little girl on the front. I was completely sold.

I was glad ‘I had bought’ after I began reading it. It, to date, is one of the most read and re-read books I have ever owned.


#1 New York Times Bestselling author – The spellbinding classic that started it all – Book I of the Vampire Chronicles

Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force—a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write.

Praise for Interview with the Vampire

“A magnificent, compulsively readable thriller . . . Rice begins where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth–the education of the vampire.”
—Chicago Tribune

“Unrelentingly erotic . . . sometimes beautiful, and always unforgettable.”
—Washington Post

“If you surrender and go with her . . . you have surrendered to enchantment, as in a voluptuous dream.”
—Boston Globe

“A chilling, thought-provoking tale, beautifully frightening, sensuous, and utterly unnerving.”—Hartford Courant
