"Interview With a Vampire" is an Anne Rice book. She wrote a lot of vampire books.. Never read any, but I want to.
I've seen a serie based on "Southern Vampire Series" by Charlaine Harris that is really awesome, want to read those books too.
And I read one of "House of Night Series" book, and its good.
I like the Vampire Academy series, it's pretty decent and isn't about sparkly, stalkerish, scary-obsessed fairies (heh hem, S.Meyers!)...anyways I tried the House of Night and I found it a very good story...for a twelve year old. The best would be bram stoker and anne rice, the classics always are though. I've heard a lot about True Blood and Vampire Diaries so I'm probably going to try those soon, my best friend is obsessed with True Blood so I'll go for that one first.
For a T.V Show I love Moonlight, it's been canceled but they do show re-runs on the CW so i'm happy.
I've read the first House of Night book and found myself completely dissatisfied by the utter shallowness of the book, vampire books i'd recommend would probably, as others have stated, Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles (any of them will do, they stand on their own well) The Southern Vampire Mysteries, Let the Right one In, which is basically twilight but twisted, better written and sparkle free, and Bite Marks: A vampire testament by Terence Taylor, a very well written book about a newly born infant made vampire who threatens the balance of humanity and vampirism as it goes on an uncontrollable rampage for blood.
Like screechingvilnce45 said, you should take 'Interview With The Vampire', cause I have seen the movie and it's great, and I also know that Anne Rice wrote a lot of vampy based books
However, if you want a real vampire book, there is always Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'
The end of magical Pegasaus's era through the world of sims
Interview with a Vampire is a good movie, but the book and movie are not the same. I actually found the book to be extremely long winded and not as good as the movie, and I'm the type that usually enjoys the books far more than the movies.
My most favorite all time vampire book would have to be "I am Legend". The movie SUCKED INFINITELY BAD, it had nothing in common with the book other than the name. Hell the main character in the book is described as a viking and I don't recall any black vikings with blonde hair but I digress. Will Smith just played the part handed to him. The book is very very good, and a lot of modern day horror writers credit Richard Matheson for being their inspiration. (Steven King I can remember right off the top of my head for crediting matheson)
If you haven't tried it you should read Laurell K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake Vampire Hunter" its semi erotic with mystery, horror, with vampires (no sparkles) were-wolves(not just Indians), and other were-whatever's(cats, rats, who knows). Every character has their own background and how the "came to be."
