    The first Rice novel I ever read I was in Bari, Italy, waiting for the ferry to take me to Corfu, Greece I was reading a hideously boring Candadian novel, and the young lady in line next to me was reading The Tale of the Body Thief We switched books I had never heard of Anne Rice I fell in love with the book Soon after, when I was in Sorrento a few weeks later, I was searching for any Rice books I could find Her writing is lush Reading this book was like wearing a mink coat inside out i.e you feel the soft luxurious fur on your skin Lestat, the main character, is a very egotistical vampire, yet he is very amicable The sto...

    She s way too in love with her own writing at this point Takes ten pages to describe the front of a mansion In the words of the great Casey Kasem Ponderous man, f ing ponderous.

    This book is very good It is well written and packed of life reflections There is no doubt that Anne Rice knows what she is doing.Particularly, I just don t think that this installment is at the same level as the first three books of this series To me, this book seems to center in introspections and rumination than in the actual plot The storyline feels like an excuse for all the pondering, deliberating and meditating that the characters do Don t get me wrong, it was very interesting, it just didn t capture me as...

    Bullet Review Wow What a serious waste of my time I felt bad when I was bored with The Queen of the Damned, which I attribute to being Vampire Chronicle d out, but I can t use that excuse with this book I had quite a few months between Queen of the Damned and whatever THIS is.This book has a thread of a good idea a being who can switch bodies and Lestat who wants to be a human again and RUINS it with endless talking and thinking about the same points ad nauseum Scenes that could have been powerful run FAR too long, thus running any good points into the ground.And let me allow a few images to say how I feel about the rest of this series Full Review After being mostly OK with his vampire life up to this point well, after the events of The Queen of the Damned, where he defeats Akasha s uprising, I can see why he d be a bit bummed , Lestat hears about a Body Thief a being who can move between bodies and thereby live forever Louis and David tell him repetitively and in long, clunky chapters that this isn t a good idea After, of course, long, clunky chapters talking about what God is, who the devil is, and all sorts of religious issues that the author must have been working through at the time.A quarter of a book later, Lestat meets up with the Body Thief They spend several long, clunky chapters going back and forth on a deal so that Lestat can use a human body...

    I thought that this is by far Anne Rice s best description of Lestat s true character Everything he did in this book was exactly what I would expect someone who is supposed to be so selfish and evil to do Throughout the rest of the books Rice tries so hard to tell you that Lestat is really not good, that he can do evil things, and she tries desperately to make him into this anti hero This is the first book where I think she does a really good job of it This makes me want to read about Lestat In Queen of the Damned, it seemed like she tried to tell a story while telling us all about her vampires history I thi...

    Leer sobre vampiros no es una nueva moda Los vampiros no nacieron como una explosi n de hormonas adolescentes, ni mucho menos del cine aunque sea este el que nos haya dado las im genes m s vivas y majestuosas de ellos Seguramente no muchos estuvieron de acuerdo con el ahora clich del vampiro refinado y elegante que cre Polidori en su c lebre relato El Vampiro , que luego pareci afamarse con la obra de Bram Stoker Dr cula , inspirada en parte en la historia del conde Vlad Tepes Pero juzgar a un lector simplemente porque lee un libro de vampiros es otra cosa.Termin de leer la semana pasada El Ladr n de Cuerpos un libro que esper muchos a os para llegar a mis manos y que quise devorar desde que, casi de un tir n hace un par de a os, termin los primeros tres libros de la saga de Cr nicas Vamp ricas , me atrevo a decir, un cl sico de la literatura contempor nea escrito por la muy preparada Anne Rice.Me encontraba leyendo las ltimas p ginas en un Transmilenio en Bogot , cuando una se ora que se sent a mi lado no pudo evitar leer la contraportada de mi libro Entonces, luego de un bufido parecido al de los toros caballos si se quiere la se ora me suelta qu pasa que todos leen de vampiros Ahora todos quieren ser vampi...

    3.5 stars Another solid chapter in one of the most iconic vampire series of all time It is amazing that even after all this time and the endless series of vampire novels that this series still shines as one of the better ones Recommended

    I enjoyed Tale of the Body Thief than any other installment of Anne Rice s Vampire Chronicles up to this point in the series Unlike all of her other vampire novels, Rice doesn t spend half the book in flashbacks relating someone s history, and for that we are rewarded More than ever before we are inside the mind of the vampire Lestat and can revel in his fiesty, pompous spirit and feel closer to him than ever before I remember when reading The Queen of the Damned I was getting sick of the flashbacks and origin stories I wanted to see Lestat in present day I wanted to see him covorting around, just being him And here we get that, we see him in every day existence, absorb the glory of it all, and experience his transitions as he gives up his vampire body to be a mortal once again and his supriring revelations he comes to discover I didn t want this book to end When I closed this book, I felt saddened at the silencing of Lestat s running narrative, his eccentricities and sensitivites But there s at least one to read, so I still have that to look forward to But one thing s for certain out of all the vampire chronicles, this is one I will be returning to and rereading in the future This book made me realize how incredibly awful it really is to be human Rice personified it to the extent you feel she really does know what it s like to look from the outside at our species, and it s uncanny how she transforms Lestat s outlook in the proc...

    The Tale of the Body Thief is the 4th book in the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice And it is by far the best one Lestat is being followed Everywhere he goes he senses that someone is watching him He can t shake it Finally, his mysterious follower leaves him instructions to meet Is it a trap Is he being lured in under false pretenses Of course, every single person that Lestat talks to instructs him NOT to go.So, being Lestat he goes.The man who Lestat meets offers him a once in a lifetime opportunity to be mortal again After centuries of immortality, Lestat could walk in daylight, taste wine and foods, and once again experience life through mortal eyes Once again everyone tells Lestat not to even entertain the notion.Once again, Lestat does what he wants and goes full bore into the endeavor I ll give it to him, he had a contract, rules, agreements and an arrangement that made sense to both parties But a man who physically steals bodies Can he truly be tusted Of course not Lestat is forced to be mortal for much longer than he intended His body has been taken from him and he is now susceptible to th...

    It is official this is the book that made me an unwavering fan of Lestat While the previous Vampire Chronicle, Queen of the Damned features an array of characters and scenarios, there wasn t as much a focus on the Brat Prince In this, the fourth book in the series, Anne Rice has almost inverted that Lestat de Lioncourt is front and center through all of it the reader gets to, finally, see him fall, and seek redemption The concept is pretty simple Lestat, after over two centuries of being a vampire, has grown weary of it all He s tired of the purgatory, the repetition he longs to feel human pleasures again He comes across a mysterious spirit a body thief that allows him to trade places with a human man By combining her trademark erotic and horrific tendencies with a hilarious and enthralling fish out of water scenario Lestat was human in the 1700s, mind you, and is attempting human life once in the early 1990s , Anne Rice crea...
