453, Interview with the Vampire

Genre: Fiction

I'm notorious for reading series out of order, and this is the first time I've read Interview. Louis recounts to a boy about how he became a vampire. The story introduces the vampires Lestat and Armand. At first Louis is a very passive character, and just lets things happen. After he dispatches Lestat, he takes more and more control. He travels to Europe in search of other vampires, and eventually finds Armand in Paris.

Rice is talented at moving stories and characters forward, this book is no exception. Honestly, I enjoy Lestat's voice the most in the Vampire Chronicles, but this book offers a different view of Lestat. Wonderful book, highly recommend it to anyone who has never read it before.
