Beautiful book that I hope to keep in my collection for a long time! One nice surprise when I received the book was the gold page edges. Wasn't mentioned in the book's description but definitely a nice touch!
Also, the book cover is more of a pewter color in real life and not as yellow as it looks online. Kindle Edition Verified download.
First read this book the month is was first released. Read it in 10 hours, it was that good. Couldn't put it down, it was like binging on a box of the best chocolates in the world. I have read it countless times since then and it never, ever gets old. I consider Anne Rice to be one of a small handful of writers to be truly gifted.
One of the best writers of this century. I truly consider her books to be thought provoking, allowing the reader to follow the character as they examine their natures, souls and the concepts of right, wrong, good , and evil. I know that I continue to examine mine every time I read this series. Paperback Verified download. My collection is complete and I look forward to many years reading and re reading. Anne is brilliant and Memnoch is my favorite of this series, so thought evoking and well fleshed out.
She is a master of vampire stories! I bought this book used and it came as expected. One person found this helpful. Anne Rice does a wonderful job of writing in a way that makes a fictitious topic seem real. She describes different places and people so the reader get lost in the "pages. The books include such a wide variety of characters that you find yourself hating a character one moment and then completely changing your opinion.
Leather Bound Verified download. I have read this book cover to cover, this 3 book compilation of the start of the Vampire chronicle series. Since Blood Canticle, which Ms. Rice had intended to be the last Vampire book at that time when she was going through her Christian phase there have been two new Vampire books, centering on Lestat, Atlantis, and aliens.
Yes, you heard right. Personally, as far as Ms. Rive's Vampire books go, I think you should stop at Blood and Gold, but that's up to you. Apr 03, Jason Jackson rated it did not like it. I wanted to like this but after the first few books this really wasn't very good I gave up after Memnoch the Devil got a little into The Vampire Armand and had enough just not an Anne Rice fan I just feel like I know how thing are going to go.
Jan 24, Ea Solinas rated it liked it. Except for "Dracula," the Vampire Chronicles are probably the most influential story about vampires ever written And like vampire fiction itself, "The Complete Vampire Chronicles" which is no longer complete, with the publication of "Prince Lestat" is a severely mixed bag -- some of the books are absolutely brilliant, some are middling, and some will leave you goggling in horror.
While Except for "Dracula," the Vampire Chronicles are probably the most influential story about vampires ever written While it begins with three spellbinding classics of vampire passion and pain, the books slowly slip in quality as the series goes on, climaxing with the fanfiction-like grotesquerie of "Blood Canticle. Rice follows them through the centuries, from their human lives to the first dramatic days of vampirism, of the sensuality and loss that filled their days, and to the current day.
The key to stopping her lies in a pair of ancient vampire witches. And then Rice started careening off the path. And in "Memnoch The Devil," Lestat encounters the devil After that came a slew of vampire "memoirs," wherein the characters of Armand, Pandora, Marius and a heretofore-unknown vampire named Vittorio were explored. Then we lurch back to the present day, with "Merrick" interweaving the Mayfair witches into the Vampire Chronicles, with Louis asking an alcoholic witch whose breasts are detailed a little too much to contact the spirit of his "daughter.
And no, that won't make any sense unless you've read the Mayfair Witch trilogy. In a series spanning nearly thirty years of publication, it's inevitable that this series would have massive ups-and-downs.
The first two books are nearly perfect, lush and hauntingly passionate, and the third is a slow-burning epic that spans the globe and all of human history. Unfortunately, the books that follow were not able to maintain the same quality -- "The Body Thief" struggles with many bizarre or disgusting moments, and "Memnoch the Devil" is a pretentious mass of dull pseudo-spirituality. One thing that can't be denied is that throughout most of the series, Rice's prose is pretty lush and even intoxicating; she brings alive the humid, flowering beauty of New Orleans, rock concerts, the labyrinthine streets of old Europe, and the deserts of ancient Egypt.
Her writing is at its best when it lingers on historical things, whether it's the events of the past encroaching on the present, or a simple memoir of an immortal life lived.
Though the stories of some of the "memoirs" are rather thin, the writing makes them more enjoyable. Unfortunately, even the writing deteriorates in the final trilogy of books, and the interlacing of the Mayfair witch stories causes the stories to become almost like bad fan-fiction.
The final indignity is Lestat's overnight transformation into a slang-slinging weirdo who wants to be a saint, and falls in love at first sight with Rowan Mayfair. It is worth noting also that the publisher -- presumably for the same reasons as the rearranged Narnia Chronicles -- did not release these works in publication order, but in chronological order.
So rather than opening with "Interview," the collection opens with "Pandora" and proceeds to "Vittorio" before settling on Rice's first novel. However, the vacillating quality means that the omnibus is best suited to those fans who love all her vampire books. I'm having a hard time getting through these books. I've lost my momentum! Lestat has lost some of his appeal and now that he's talking to the devil, it's dragging and dragging.
Get on with it! Do something! I didn't think this would be a lesson in theology. Mar 15, Marc Estes rated it really liked it. Just a captivating series.
