Anne Rice – Book collection [28 pcs]
Publisher: Ballantine Books | 1000 pages | 1996-2009 | File type: PDF | 26 mb

With Interview With the Vampire, Anne Rice completely rejuvenated the genre which I feel to be horror’s most important, primal, and soul-stirring, the legend of the vampire. I have described Richard Matheson’s classic I Am Legend as the second greatest vampire novel, but I must retract that statement now. Only with a second reading have I recognized the unparalleled power, beauty, eroticism, and grace of Anne Rice’s contribution to the subject. Unlike Matheson, Rice luxuriates in the Victorian appeal of Stoker’s masterpiece, while taking the subject to planes far beyond those Stoker could have envisioned for his Count Dracula. The modern writer does not have to hide the vampire’s erotic appeal behind convention, nor does she need to classify her subject as an evil in and of itself. The vampire nature of Rice’s creation is a complex, unfathomable subject that transcends good and evil.

The Vampire Lestat (The Vampire Chronicles)
Publisher: Ballantine Books | ISBN: 0345419642 | 100 pages | 1997 | PDF
If Anne Rice had never written another book after “The Vampire Lestat,” her reputation as a rare genius would have been created and sealed with this one novel.Unlike most Rice fans, I read this book first, and it has always been my favorite of all the Vampire Chronicls, much more so than “Interview with a Vampire.”I cannot count how many times I have reread this book, and with each reading, I find a new richness, a new insight, a new awe-inspiring peak into the mind of a woman whose genius may be madness, but with whom I will gladly cross the line. (Case in point: This is the only book ever for which I stood in line for hours to have the author inscribe her name.)



The Queen of the Damned (Vampire Chronicles)
Publisher: Ballantine Books | ISBN: 0345419626 | 380 pages | 1997 | PDF
The Queen of the Damned is strikingly different in both form and substance from the first two books of The Vampire Chronicles. Several new characters are introduced, a numb
er of truly old vampires we have only heard of up until now become part of the action, and the story is woven together into a mosaic much more wide in scope from what has come before. This is essentially Lestat’s book, but he is not really the focus of the tale; while he narrates his own role in events, much of the book is written in the third person. This, plus the addition of so many new characters and the truly elaborate scope that is covered, makes this novel much less cohesive than the first-person narratives of the first two books. The action is spread out over six thousand years from one end of the world to the other, with a lot of mythology and pondering taking the place of the thrilling, energetic action of the earlier novels.



The Tale of the Body Thief (The Vampire Chronicles)

This book is undeniably entertaining. The whole ‘Lestat can’t even handle everyday aspects of being a human’ had me laughing out loud at times, and was a wonderful characterization on the part of Anne. However, I can’t help but feel that this novel didn’t drag me into its narrative so wonderfully as the first three books in this series. The writing seemed to havelost thatindescribably beautiful flow. The breathtaking mixture of gothic tragedy, horror and romance so notable in its predecessors remains, for the most part, aloof, and at times it feels like you are reading a well-written piece of fan-fiction rather than part of the Vampire Chronicles. I also had real problems with the character of David. Granted, he was mildly intriguing in ‘Queen of the Damned’, but now he just appears as yet another character in what had been a wonderful cross-section of characters created in the first few novels. He also annoyed me because the excellent love-hate relationship between Louis and Lestat, something that this series is infamous for, was often ousted for his ramb
