It’s the first book in author Anne Rice’s vampire series, and it’s not my favorite. I’m not sure how many vampire books Rice has written, by I have read many. It’s a good book, don’t get me wrong, with the focus being on a Louis, a melancholy vampire from the 17th century, and his counterpart, the little girl vampire named Claudia who is damned to a child’s body for decades. It’s just that Rice’s vampire tales that focus on The Vampire Lestat are more interesting.
The movie has an excellent cast. Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and a young Kristen Dunst are surprisingly impressive in their roles. So when all is said and done, I consider this contest to be a draw,
