Why Did The New Republic Call This Book “Pernicious” in 1976?

Interview with the Vampire, by Anne Rice

$2.99 Kindle Sale! ($7.99)

This is the book that started it all–the bestselling, 10-volume Vampire Chronicles series that catapulted Anne Rice into the realm of author legend. When it came out in 1976, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said it was “hypnotically poetic in tone, rich in sensory imagery and dense with the darkness that lies behind the veil of human thought.” The New Republic, on the other hand, called it “pernicious.”

Critics aside, it earned almost $1,000,000 in sales and movie rights before it hit the streets and is now one of the essential cornerstones of any fantasy or paranormal collection. The deal has only a few days left, so don’t wait to pick up this timeless masterpiece.

Get the deal.

#1 New York Times Bestselling author – The spellbinding classic – Book I of the Vampire Chronicles

Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, 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. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write.

“Unrelentingly erotic . . . sometimes beautiful, and always unforgettable.”Washington Post

“If you surrender and go with her . . . you have surrendered to enchantment, as in a voluptuous dream.”Boston Globe
