Louis recounts the stories of his life as a vampire and the vampires who have kept him company, among them Lestat, Claudia and Armand. A complex and affecting work (which differs somewhat from the recent film) is here given an exemplary interpretation by Frank Muller. Muller captures the sense of Louis, his struggle to deal with his diminishing human characteristics and his eventual distance from human emotion. This is accomplished through a quiet, yet intense, portrayal. Less restrained and true to the characters are Claudia and Lestat’s parts in the story. Muller’s performance is consistently excellent. This listening experience is truly memorable. M.A.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 95]
