It's Book Club Friday again... last Friday of the month and time for the ladies to, once again, get together to discuss a common book and drink copius amount of wine and eat even MORE copius amounts of food!! Num Num!!
The book of the month for April is Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice
Genre: Fiction, Fantasy, Horror
Summary (from Chapters.ca):
The story is ostensibly a simple one: having suffered a tremendous personal loss, an 18th-century Louisiana plantation owner named Louis Pointe du Lac descends into an alcoholic stupor. At his emotional nadir, he is confronted by Lestat, a charismatic and powerful vampire who chooses Louis to be his fledgling. The two prey on innocents, give their "dark gifts" to a young girl, and seek out others of their kind (notably the ancient vampire Armand) in Paris.
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.
Once again, I am sad to say that I did NOT read this book for club this month. I have, however, seen the movie so I feel that justifies my decision!! How could you NOT watch a movie that has young (super young) Brad Pitt and a much younger Tom Cruise... oh, and who could forget, Christian Slater. Yummmmm on all accounts!
