Europe is like a classic vampire movie. People cower in inns adorned with crucifixes and strands of garlic, fearing an evil creature stalking the countryside. Louis and Claudia find the vampire, and this vampire is nothing like they are.
It's more like a decaying corpse instead of a living, notquitebreathing human. When Interview with the Vampire came out in 1976, it flat out flopped in hardcover, selling only 25, 000 copies. The subsequent paperback release did marginally better, but the books reputation grew steadily over time, and eventually a cult following developed, especially among the goth subculture, the LGBT community and female readers. And while its a theme that is explored at an operatic level in Interview With the Vampire, Louiss tortured quest for meaning gives the book more gravitas than much of Interview With The Vampire (The Vampire Chronicles# 1) Here are the confessions of a vampire.
Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing forcea story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses.
Interview is about a vampire named Louis (you don't find out his last name until later books) who has asked a young boy reporter to tape record his life story. Louis's story begins with the tale of him being the master of a Louisiana plantation in 1791.
