    Somewhat scary and creepy. If only I didn't have the mental image of Lestat - which Anne Rice did well - as homosexual, this might actually have had a spot in my favorites shelf. Lestat's experience as a human again cracked me up a bit. He kept whining on and on about how the human body he inhabited sucked. I've read this book a couple years back and I've read the first few Vampire Chronicles as well. I remember how much I liked the first three books but then when the rest of the books came, I wa Somewhat scary and creepy.

I remember how much I liked the first three books but then when the rest of the books came, I was dismayed to carry on because of the gay feel of the story. Not that I have anything against gay people.. It's just that my mental image of Lestat was this hot, golden haired, Dark god whom women would gladly scratch each others' eyes out just for a bite from him. Sadly (for me), it all came crashing down when Lestat hooked up with David. Oh, well..

    The first book which I read by Anne Rice. It was this enthralling story which got me going back to the beginning. So so good.

    This was a very well told re telling of the Vampire Chronicle novel of The Body Thief in graphic form. Although a relatively thin volume, it was true to both the gist of Anne Rice's storey and her language in the text of its telling. I found the graphic formal to be less artistic than others I have read, but the storyboarding was consistent making this a good use of the medium to refresh someone already familiar with the novel. I would be hesitant in recommending it to someone not already familiar This was a very well told re telling of the Vampire Chronicle novel of The Body Thief in graphic form.

I would be hesitant in recommending it to someone not already familiar with the novel or the series; And this format did significantly limit the beautiful gothic romantic impact that Anne Rice's rich writing style can have, while the abundance of pre formed imagery can also reduce the imagination in questioning and exploring some of the philosophic existential themes that this author's work is famous for.

    Read this a really long time ago and was intending to re-read it but since hearing of Anne's passing, I've decided not to do that (it just doesn't feel right). There is only one memory I have of reading this book and that is that it's one of the best stories she has ever written bar Interview with the Vampire. If you're going to read any other book by Anne, make sure it's the book version of this (not the graphic novel).

    At first the story is not so appealing, but going on it really takes the reader. Of course everything start going better when the body theft happens, and since that moment, even though you know what will happen (the plot is very easy to decode), you will want to read just in order to know how things are accomplished. Here lies the greatness of the writer: in telling you a great story and making you comprehend how everything, in the plot, was very well orchestrated.

    I found this book amongst my mother's old highschool books I absolutely loved the story telling the plot development. Also would like to note that all the vampire Chronicles are good you don't need to read all of them or any of them really to be able understand the each separate story.

    ~ 4.5 stars ~ The Tale of the Body Thief had me laughing and feeling sypathetic towards the normal human condition, all the while so damn curious... and I enjoyed every minute of this crude and awkward book.

    In Lestat's progress of exploring the human condition through excess and sensuality he is given the rare opportunity to experience again his human form. A captivating continuation and essential reading leading to the encounter with Memnoch the Devil. Superb.

    James is a kleptomaniac who has stolen or schemed for literally everything he owns, from his house to his body. However, he also has major psychic problems, and his life is a series of cycles—he gets rich by theft, then often ends up in prison.

    It cuts out the majority of Lestat being sad and weepy and pining

    Although I enjoyed this book the first 3 she wrote in the series were better for me. Still a very enjoyable book.

    not as good as the first three but still a great book, the story continues with Lestat if you liked the others you'll love this. not as good as the first three but still a great book, the story continues with Lestat if you liked the others you'll love this.

    Anyone who reads Anne Rice knows very well that her books are either totally awesome! Or totally terrible. There doesn't seem to be an in-between with her. Tale of the Body Theif is one of the good ones. Of all the books in the Vampire Chronicles, this one is the most "fun". It's kind of a "Freaky Friday" story, where we get to see Lestat try to cope with "life" back inside a living human body. I enjoyed it.

    I love Anne Rice's novels but this graphic novel left me flat. I didn't think the artwork reflected how I would have expected the vampires to appear and the graphics didn't depict anything that would add layers to the story as per other graphic novels I have read. The story seemed too bare to stand alone and in all it was a disappointing read. 1 for effort plus 1 for the numerous naked male bodies. I love Anne Rice's novels but this graphic novel left me flat.

    What happens when a vampire is given the opportunity to live a mortal life again? To taste food, feel warmth upon your skin, to enjoy carnal pleasure. To do this Lestat the vampire must trade bodies with a mortal. But being human isn't always what it's cracked up to be. Now how does Lestat get his immortal body back from someone who's relishing the powerful form he's now inhabiting? An original story concept with he flowery prose of Anne a rice.

    Ann Rice is another one of my favorite authors, she is very descriptive in her novels. The Tale of The Body Thief was one of the Vampire chronicles that she wrote. I was intrigued by the way she described how Lastat learned how to achieve OBE out of body experience and how he learned to leave one body for the other and his experiences as a human again. The brat Prince , gotta love him.
