The Vampire Lestat is Lestat’s opportunity to vindicate himself. He gets to tell his side of the story. You realize that he wasn’t as bad as Interview With A Vampire made him seem. There is even a different side to Louis and Armand. I love the depth and change in these characters. So much emotion, love and hate. Lestat and his story is not like what you think it is going to be. It is filled with the unexpected, but still has Lestat’s impulsiveness. His unpredictability makes Lestat unique and a fascinating character.
