Comments The Tale of the Body Thief

  • Frank

    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. [...]


  • Gary Galehouse

    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.


  • Crystal Starr Light

    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 b [...]


  • Tamcamry

    • 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 more [...]


  • Andrés Laverde Ortiz

    Leer sobre vampiros no es una nueva moda. Los vampiros no nacieron como una explosión de hormonas adolescentes, ni mucho menos del cine (aunque sea este el que nos haya dado las imágenes más vivas y majestuosas de ellos). Seguramente no muchos estuvieron de acuerdo con el ahora cliché del vampiro refinado y elegante que creó Polidori en su célebre relato “El Vampiro”, que luego pareció afamarse con la obra de Bram Stoker “Drácula”, inspirada en parte en la historia del conde Vlad [...]


  • Stephen

    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!!!


  • Stepheny

    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 lifetim [...]


  • Jamie

    I enjoyed Tale of the Body Thief more 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 th [...]


  • Kami

    This one was took the series back up a notch for me. I was dissapointed in Queen of the Damned.


  • Cody | codysbookshelf

    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 bein [...]


  • Carlos Lavín

    My first read of the The Vampire Lestat was quite some years ago, I was somewhere around 15 at the time. I remember being delightfully amazed by this character, the sheer raw sensuality of his persona and of the way he conducted himself. Always wanting everyone to notice him, to fear him, to love him, and actually giving them all the tools required to do so.The torture of immortality is always a floating theme in Rice's books. So is the appreciation of everything thats fragile and beautiful for [...]


  • Tokio Myers

    “Revenge is the concern of those who are at some point or other beaten. I am not beaten, I told myself. No, not beaten. And victory is far more interesting to contemplate than revenge.”It's weird re-reading this book in a good way. As a middle school brat I hated this book. It's full of long descriptions, winy vampires and humans, and a old man that somehow captured Lestat's attention. So why would anyone read this and think it's awesome? “One tiny flame could make so many other flames; on [...]


  • Kristen Burns

    3 StarsReview:I won't even do lists this time because I had the same likes and dislikes. The plot was slow (really slow for a while in the beginning), the writing was a bit odd with the flashbacks and characters telling long stories to one another, but I'm invested in the characters, and that's why I can't stop reading this series.This one was much more focused on Lestat though, whereas the other books had a lot about the other vampires as well. And, to be honest, I think I'm more invested in th [...]


  • Jess The Bookworm

    Lestat returns, in this the fourth novel in the Vampire Chronicles. Lestat, always one looking for trouble, always philosophizing, meets with a Body Thief: a man capable of switching bodies with other people, most of the time against their will. Lestat agrees to switch bodies with this Body Thief for one day, so that he can feel what it is like to be human again.As one expects, everything does not go as plan, and Lestat has to try and get himself out of the dangerous position he has put himself [...]


  • effie

    Why did I like this book so much? Why is Anne Rice simultaneously a literary genius and batshit insane? I shouldn't have liked this book, anyway; there were a lot of little things that irked me while I was reading it - but in the end, there I was completely engrossed again. Raglan is a kickass weirdo of a character (and her descriptions of his movements in the fantastically creepy lead-up to his introduction have stuck with me for half a decade now); she's still obviously a liiiittle bit too obs [...]


  • Penny

    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 more 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 [...]


  • BAM The Bibliomaniac

    Lestat is at it again. Such an impetuous beast! Triple dog dare him and he will do it in a heartbeat. This time he meets a man who can switch souls and steal bodies as if they are mere vessels. His acquaintance may be Lestat’s undoing. Along with his close friend, David, they chase this man down. Louis makes an appearance as well as Claudia. Loved that! We soar to Paris, the Bahamas, New Orleans. Lots of money thrown around. Rice does it again.


  • Bobby Luke

    A good story - interesting and captivating - but it is safe to say that Lestat has to be the world's biggest moron to not see what happens coming. Also - I predicted one of the big "twists" at the end, but not the final one - so good on Anne Rice for that.There was one scene that probably didn't need to be written in complete detail, which knocked this down a star.I am still interested in seeing where and what Lestat gets himself into next.


  • Belinda

    This is part of my quest to read and re-read the Anne Rice Vampire series and the Mayfair Witches series as they blend together. I had not read this particular book or had read it so long ago I did not remember it. I actually really enjoyed this one--I found myself up until 6 am last night/this morning finishing it. Lestat is once again our narrator and his attachment to the Talamasca leader David Talbot takes a central role in the story. Lestat meets a former Talamasca member who has the abilit [...]


  • Lisa

    Another great book in the Vampire Chronicles, and possibly one of my favourites so farWe already knew that Lestat is awesome; the petulant, selfish, petty and yet incredibly charming, intelligent and seductive vampire hero of the series, and through this book we must now add another descriptive - hilarious.Rice solves the problem of having a near invincible hero through a concept that I thought worked incredibly well; by having him take part in a trade - his body for that of a mortal man, for a [...]


  • Kathrin

    This was by far my favorite book in the series. I did like the previous ones but this one finally sold me on the character of Lestat. To be honest, I wasn't too impressed to see that he'll be the main character of the series as I couldn't connect with him at all in the beginning. It has gotten better since I heard his side of the story but I've become a fan after this book. 'The Tale of the Body Thief' added quite an element to the classic vampire lore for me. At least I haven't read a book abou [...]


  • Anna Ligtenberg

    ISBN 034538475X - Never having read any of Rice's Vampire Chronicles, I was happy to find that this book does stand alone - no previous knowledge required.Lestat, almost a drama queen in his moments of self-loathing, is approached by a man named Raglan James, who proposes a trade. He will let Lestat be human again, something Lestat believes he wants, by swapping bodies. It is to be a short-term swap, and Lestat overlooks every sign that this could be a bad idea. His friends, human and vampire, w [...]


  • Lukas (LukeLaneReads)

    Anne Rice goes the 'freaky friday' route and has Lestat switching bodies with a human. Definitely one of the better sequels I've read so far in the series. 3.5 Stars


  • Sofia Teixeira

    Esta obra é, sem dúvida, das melhores de Anne Rice. Pelo menos das que li até hoje. Lestat é uma personagem que ficará para sempre gravada na minha memória. Quando pensamos que ele já ultrapassou todos os limites que podia, enganamo-nos redondamente!Lestat fartou-se de ser vampiro! E quando descobre a existência de um 'ladrão de corpos' não resiste à tentação de querer voltar a ser humano! De querer voltar a sentir a luz do sol no seu rosto, de sentir o sabor da comida e de fazer am [...]


  • Raquel

    I absolutely loved the ending to Queen of the Damned. Now, I wonder if I should have stopped reading The Vampire Chronicles then. The Tale of the Body Thief is told by The Vampire Lestat, Rice's famous "brat prince". After the events of the last novel the few remaining immortals have disbanded and he now wanders the earth alone, again. He has befriended David Talbot, of the Talamasca, and constantly offers the old man the Dark Gift, which he always refuses. Depressed, lonely, and constantly haun [...]


  • Miquel Reina

    The Tale of the Body Thief is a difficult book to explain, every time I try it I finally think that I'm telling a bad romantic comedy about changing bodies. But The Tale of the Body Thief has nothing to do with those typical stories. I think this book opens a new chapter in The Vampire Chronicles of Anne Rice. Although Lestat is still the Main Character, his path will start to veer towards a more mystical, dreamy, almost religious world. Although for me isn't the best book of Anne Rice, I have t [...]


  • Miranda

    I LOVED THE TALE OF THE BODY THIEF. I loved that Lestat desires to feel sunlight. I loved how Lestat loves bread and orange juice. I loved Lestat for loving a woman. I loved Lestat for loivng Mojo. Oh, my! Mojo. My heart swelled when Rice comments that Mojo was to serve one purpose in the story's plot -- to provide companionship. I loved Lestat for wanting and needing and fighting for his rightful body because Lestat is meant to be a vampire. I loved that I met my dear dear Louie, the vampire, o [...]


  • Caitlin

    I really like this book, it is from Lesats point of view and is interesting. Lesat is being followed by a man, a human man, who offers him a chance to be human again. Against his friends wishes he takes the deal which leads to horrible results. This book has some small problems, but the last chapters 32 and on really made me want to throw the book at the wall the first time I read it. Now I understand it but it still upsets me.


  • Wendy

    Lestat got in trouble, and became HUMAN! And wanted his Vampire body back! What a neat twist and insight into the character of this impulsive Lestat! Great read, and continuation of the vampire series, but different direction. Excellent read.


  • Cyndy Aleo

    Once upon a time, Anne Rice had an excellent series called the Vampire Chronicles. It began with Interview with the Vampire, where her "main" vampire, Lestat, is introduced, and continued her focus on the various adventures and mishaps of Lestat through this novel, The Tale of the Body Thief.::: Oh, That Silly Lestat. There He Goes Again :::The Tale of the Body Thief begins with the age-old question of the existence of God. Lestat, as usual, begins the narration, and the topic continues as he me [...]
