I have read many of the reviews about this book and it's pretty clear you're either going to love it or hate it. As someone who was born and raised Catholic but has had many questions concerning the issue of faith, Anne Rice's depiction of the battle between Good and Evil, God and the Devil, fell right into my own need for answers. What does this have to do with Vampires and Lestat in particular? From what I've read in the reviews, it seems many readers have forgotten about the reason why so many of the Undead roam and rail. Doesn't anyone remember why Lestat went searching for others, what Armand told him of God? That he has no answers, that none of them do! And even now, after Memnoch, Lestat is still not sure. Was it a dream? Why did Armand fly up to the sun to burn then. I can't see how anyone can read this book and not think it has something to do with the Chronicles. If anything, the Bodysnatcher implied and suggested this book as the next level. If you accept the premise of Lestat battling for his soul on the physical plane, why would a battle for the same on a spiritual level be les believable. Anne Rice's literary genius in the Vampire series is in none of these books better manifested than in Memnoch the Devil. Be glad you are not eternal, damned to wander and wonder without answers forever! Buy it! Read it!

I read Interview with the Vampire and thought it was okay. Memnoch the Devil, however, I really liked. The story of how Hell came to exist is brilliant! If you liked this, try The Apocrypha, which takes this premise to a whole new level.

This was the one book I read of Anne Rice's so far I was not Wow'd by. It was ok. She spoke to my imagination as she has done so much before but this just do not grip me.

I was slightly disapointed when I read this one. It wasn't up to the books that came before or after in the series.

I was supremely disappointed by the denoument and the so called "twist" at tthe end. This novel, like Rice's better works, featured her gorgeous descriptions and imagery throughout most of the work. It also shi

Can't go wrong with Anne Rice

A lot of religious imagery in this one. Definitely not for the light of heart or the easily offended. That said, I adore this book. I adore it because it's so utterly surreal and otherwordly, I adore it because for once, the confident, beautiful Brat Prince - aka Lestat - is unsure. I adore it because as a Christian, I can truly appreciate what she has done with this. God, the Devil and Lestat in the same book - how can you lose? Read Memnoch the Devil. Give it a chance. You won't regret it, I promise you.

It was a bit too descriptive for my taste, a love Ann Rice's writing, but it was all a description of Memnochs distate for Gods project until page 330, so i had to stop reading several times to get the groove back into wanting to read it again. I did love the end, it made me laugh so much, poor Lestat, but I'm not giving spoilers. Even though i didn't love it because it was over whelming at times, I still recommend it because it's a relevant part to other books, The Vampire Armand is on my shelf ready for me.
