The Vampire Lestat
Back during the original vampire craze of the eighties, when I really loved The Lost Boys and Near Dark, I decided to give Anne Rice a try.
So I read The Vampire Lestat.
I loved the opening bit, with the vampire as rock star. Then it started an extended flashback. Okay, that was fine, but I hoped to find out more about the rock star story.
Then there was another extended flashback.
Then he met another vampire. And that vampire had to tell its story.
Enough already! I don't want to hear the back stories of every person/vampire you come across! Tell me about this rock star business!
I haven't read any more Anne Rice.
