Interview with the Vampire: Claudia's Story - Anne Rice, Ashley Marie Witter I read Anne Rice's "Interview with the Vampire" many years ago as a young teen and since then it has been my favorite vampire story. Claudia was always a very intriguing character to me, so when I saw this book at a shop, my curiosity was piqued.

My feelings about this graphic novel are pretty much consistent to the majority of the other reviewes I've read - the artwork is gorgeous however the story itself did not do much to really give us anything new from Claudia's POV. I had really hoped to get a bit more inside Claudia's head - get a new perspective and new voice, but to be honest, it doesn't add anything new to the story which is unfortunate. One one hand, that might be good since it is Anne Rice's character and it's safe not to take too many liberties, but at the same time, I was expecting a little more.

That said, if you are a fan of the original story, I highly reccomend it regardless purely for the beautiful sepia-tone illustrations. It was a nice quick read and a nice way to revisit the original story without trudging through Rice's excessive exposition.
