"A magnificent, compulsively readable thriller . . . Rice begins where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth-the education of the vampire."-Chicago Tribune

Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly sensual, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force-a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses.

This book is classic and was one of the first paranormal books I read. It explores a dark world of the vampires and brings to light that other beings could exist within our world. The writing is descriptive and leaves your imagination alive.

A dark tale of a vampire who questions his existence and has a conscience. The story proves that immortality is a life of loneliness and suffering, not the glamorous life it is thought to be. The scene involving Claudia painfully demonstrates this. The exchanging and drinking of blood is also described as an intimate and sensual process, giving the story a dark romance feel.

What I loved most about this novel was it's rich detailed history and sense of timelessness. The weaving in and out of history was fascinating as was meeting a vampire in a modern day setting. The characters captured my imagination and stayed with me. The novel so affected me that I still have the original paperback I purchased back in college (circa late 1970's)
