When I was 13, I read this book so many times that I had the first page memorized. Flowery prose bordering on the purple, beautiful vampires that never die, tortured love...The Vampire Chronicles had everything a teenage girl could wish for. To explain how obsessed I was with these books. A few years ago I found a note book from when I was 13, where I recored my three wishes. They were as follows: 1)To be 16. 2)To be beautiful 3)To become a vampire.Oh god...that's so embarrassing.But I have to admit, that the Brat Prince will always be my favorite hero of fiction.
