"STARTLING. . . FIENDISH. . . MEMNOCH'S TALE IS COMPELLING."
--New York Daily News
Like Interview With the Vampire, Memnoch has a half-maddened, fever-pitch
intensity. . . Narrated by Rice's most cherished character, the vampire Lestat, Memnoch tells a tale as old as Scripture's legends and as modern as today's religious strife.
--Rolling Stone
"SHOCKING. . . A BRILLIANT BOOK."
--St. Louis Post Dispatch
"Rice has penned an ambitious close to this long-running series, as well as a classy exit for a classic horror character. . Fans will no doubt devour this last visit with Lestat."
--The Washington Post Book World
"MEMNOCH THE DEVIL OFFERS PASSAGES OF POETIC BRILLIANCE."
--Playboy
"[Memnoch] is one of Rice's most intriguing and sympathetic characters to date. . . Rice ups the ante, taking Lestat where few writers have ventured: into heaven and hell itself. She carries it off in top form."
--The Seattle Times
"RICHLY DESCRIPTIVE. . . A HORRIFIC TOUR OF HELL."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred)

I hit a vampire brick wall with this book. As terrific as the original trilogy was, 'Memnoch' killed any interest in ever reading another Anne Rice vampire book.

i dont particularly like or hate it. i agree with the person below; im not big on religious topics either. if you're somebody that is into that, you would probably enjoy it more.

This tale is heavy on religion; I would have preferred less of it. Yet, never has Lestat been so affected by events. Is it possible that our vampire has finally matured? Or, will he be back to his same old antics? I’m looking forward to the next book.

Another goo tale from Rice. As usual, I found it hars to get past the beginning and really get into the story but once I did it was a winner!

Probably my favourite Anne Rice book. Incredibly ambitious. Underrated.
