I generally liked reading this story. There were some areas of the novel that seemed a bit slow but the rest of it was pretty good. I was kind of surprised by the ending. The whole novel revolved around the struggles and the hard times Louis went through as a vampire and yet at the end of it all, the boy wants to be just like him. This was not what Louis had set out to do when he started the interview. He wanted people to be aware of the trials and tribulations he went through in his long life. He lost the people he cared about, his brother, mother, Claudia, as well as himself. If I conducted an interview with a vampire, I believe I would have been terrified the entire time I was there. Because I understood and could sympathize with Louis about the story he was trying to tell as a reader, had I been the interviewer, I do not believe I would have reacted the same way the boy did. I think that story would have scared me straight and I would appreciate the life that I have as a human being. To me I think the boy was more like LeStat.
