Publisher's Summary

More of The Vampire Chronicles - where dark pleasures and glorious decadence abound. Anne Rice once again creates the hypnotic, mythical world of the undead. Here is the story of the dazzling and seductive vampire Lestat, whom we first perceive as evil incarnate. We travel with Lestat from the licentious Paris of the 18th century to the pagan courts of ancient Egypt to the frenzied 20th century world of rock superstardom, as he elusively searches for the roots and meaning of his own immortality. As he does so, our sympathy is more and more engaged and we come to recognize that he is, in fact, a questing romantic, a vampire hero - with his own strange and passionate sense of courage and morality. The Vampire Lestat is Volume 2 of The Vampire Chronicles.

Disappointing return to a teenage favourite

I read this book about 10 yrs ago, this abridged audio version does the original book NO justice. Michael York does a good job of narrating the tale, but 'cutting down' the story doesn't work well, and I fear this style of gothic storytelling just doesn't interest me anymore.
Whats with the violins too!? drowning out the narrative and adding nothing to the ambience. Do yourself a favour and read the book instead.
