Publisher's Summary

In this terrifying novel from the phenomenally successful Anne Rice, the illustrious vampire Lestat makes a Faustian pact with devil.

Satan has come to New Orleans with an enticing proposition. Under the name Memnoch, this lord of darkness takes Lestat on a tour through the boundaries of space and time, offering an alternative and personalised account of the Bible, exploring the events which shaped our world.

Their journey comes to an apocalyptic conclusion in hell, from which Lestat returns frail and broken. The experience has shattered his perceptions of the known universe, but can you ever trust the devil?

    "Memnoch the Bore"

    Do you want to feel as though you are back at school, being forced to read the dullest book in the world when there are 1,001 other things you'd rather be doing, including scrubbing the grout in a stranger's bathroom? Seek no further. I've just woken up with a stiff shoulder having fallen asleep (more like passed out) at my desk listening to this - and that's the third time this has happened with this dreadful book. The almost unremitting boredom and leaden pomposity of this dull tale is occasionally punctuated by hilariously bad descriptions of sexual encounters. Hearing such experiences read aloud by the master, Simon Vance, reminded me of listening to that Youtube video, "Morgan Freeman reads Fifty Shades of Grey". But at least that's supposed to be funny.
    Do you enjoy reading endless Wikipedia pages about angels, archangels, choirs, denominations, pixies, nixies and widdle fwuffy faiwies? This book is for you. Do you like dressing up as characters from LOTR and gamboling through the woods with like minded companions, all over the age of 40, in capes, cardboard swords and elven hats you bought off Amazon? Ditto. Do you enjoy explaining the evolution of souls, god, the devil, demons, ghosts, hell, and Count Dracula to four year olds in such a way that even THEY won't believe you? Then Memnoch is your book.
    I stuck with the book because I enjoyed the other Lestat novels I've read so far. It will be a looooooooong time before I can face another.

    "Not the best in the series"

    It's a little self indulgent and doesn't really fit in the chronicles. It's a personal exploration of religion using Lestat as a tool. This book almost put me off Lestat, I'd give this volume a miss honestly. The voice acting is good as ever.
