Many times I lost touch with the real world and thought, "Hey, I need to look that up in the history books!". That is entertainment, when a writer can make you think his reality is unquestionalbly the truth, even when you know it is fiction. I love Anne Rice and this book is on the same caliber, maybe even above it. I only wish there were a sequel

I'm only 13 years old but this book really...got to me. I've read all sorts of books, but this one really tops my list. From beginning to end it was; scary, thrilling, suspenseful, and altogether excellent. I recommend to anyone willing to to definatley read this book if your into Vampires or the work of Lord Byron himself. I loved it and I think many others will too.

I throroughly enjoyed this book. Holland blends the idea (widely held in the 19th century) that the "Vampyre" of Poliodori's story was in fact Byron with interesting facts of Byron's life, and adds a helping of fanstasy and conjecture. Well-written and a cut above the average vampire fare.

I thought it was great, with fiction intermingled with non-fiction. Hobhouse's character was great, and why didn't Rebecca leave earlier (i would have). I also enjoy Anne Rice, and thought this to be along the same lines. Overall, a good read!

My first vampire book. Definately not my last. Solid writing, excellent prose, and plenty of ghastly horror. The first few pages a slow, but then it history of a vampire in fast forward.

Holland wrote this novel with a lot of historical evidences and his great fancy. The writer is dashingly smart. I almost believe I can meet Lord Byron in modern London. If Byron is a vampire we can understand his peculiarities perfectly. If you are a Byron fan or vampire fan, please try!

First of all I am confuesed: Do I really have the same book? I bought my copy in London in summer '95 and it is called The Vampyre, is this really the same book? Anyway, I pretty much liked the book, but it had its weak points - such as the way Holland describes the way a vampire is made and then the thing about the children.... that did not make any sense to me... but it is a good read anyway.
