Softly sad beautifully stoicReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 August 2018
I am re-reading the full cannon of vampire chronicles within 3 months of the first hurried reading having skipped Pandora and Vittorio the first time. For this and other reasons these books sparkle as perfect, unique gems. What a being is Vittorio! So little damaged in comparison to Armand, of a similar era and 1 year his junior! A soft simple tale, of slaughter, horror and los as are all these vampire tales admittedly, but Vittorio emerges a nobleman and carries his destiny with dignity. I am enchanted and thankful for AR's endnotes. I am writing to her suggested All Souls' Vespers, Cordoba Cathedral. No Lestat but not all Vampires belong to his beloved Coven of the Articulate. Thank you AR for this rich world you have peopled in solid natures.

Vittorio: The Vampire is the second novel in the New Tales of the Vampires seriesReviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 February 2015
Early Anne Rice novels, the first Lestat books in particular, carried you along in wonderment at a new view of the world, but that wonder has grown stale and stagnant, and lanquid posing while waiting for the next sexual frisson does not, for me anyway, make for interesting reading. Vittorio was really annoying, the mixing of the vampires and angels was annoying, the questioning about religion. But the biggest problem with this story was the repetition of each of her vampires; why do they all have to come from wealthy, if not royal, backgrounds? No beautiful homeless youths for an older vampire to fall in love with? And secondly, why do they all have to reflect her Roman Catholic views (even the pre-Christian vampires, to some extent)? You're telling me none of the vampires can be Lutheran or something? What are the odds?

Very good condition, another great book from this writer
A Good Book...Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 March 2013
As usual, Anne Rice writes the best stories and I am a huge fan. This story was no exception although I have to admit that I found the book rather smaller than her previous books and so I read it far too quickly... within a day! :-/
Vittorio, The VampireReviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 January 2014
This was a gift to my daughter and she hasn't read it yet. However, it arrived well in time for Christmas and since it is one of the Anne Rice books which she hadn't got she was pleased to receive it.
