I read this book a long time ago, & really must do so again. I totally agree with the previous review...it really is an amazing book. Yes I loved Interview with a Vampire, especially the film, however, I feel that this is the best book that Anne Rice has ever written. I'm not religious, but I couldn't help but pity the character Memnock, & see things from his point of view...It really made me question the religion of christianity, & view it from different angles. I'd say this is one of my favourite books - it's brilliant!
