What I am currently reading...

I am reading Anne Rice 'Interview with a Vampire'. I am not sure but I think I have read it, years ago. If not then I am lying to you. So far it is pretty interesting. I like the characters (but I am also on page 12 so I can't really say). I am not crazy about vampires but sometimes there are exceptions. From annerice.com:

"This is the story of Louis, as told in his own words, of his journey through mortal and immortal life. Louis recounts how he became a vampire at the hands of the radiant and sinister Lestat and how he became indoctrinated, unwillingly, into the vampire way of life. His story ebbs and flows through the streets of New Orleans, defining crucial moments such as his discovery of the exquisite lost young child Claudia, wanting not to hurt but to comfort her with the last breaths of humanity he has inside. Yet, he makes Claudia a vampire, trapping her womanly passion, will, and intelligence inside the body of a small child. Louis and Claudia form a seemingly unbreakable alliance and even "settle down" for a while in the opulent French Quarter. Louis remembers Claudia's struggle to understand herself and the hatred they both have for Lestat that sends them halfway across the world to seek others of their kind. Louis and Claudia are desperate to find somewhere they belong, to find others who understand, and someone who knows what and why they are."




This isn't something I usually read but I am sure it is the same Vampire Chronicles that I read years ago, although after reading that little extract am convinced it is not. *sigh* I am beginning to love it.
