    "I always am drawn to vampire genre novels, and for some reason a friend suggested this book to me. Unfortunately, it doesn't star any of fave supernatural peeps! It's a good book, but I didn't think it was very good for someone wanting to get a vamp fix."

    "Anne Rice is always an incredible author and Interview With the Vampire is no different. This is a sexy and satisfying tale chronicling a vampire's life though a number of experiences in a long, long lifetime. The story is full of sensuality, while also being balanced by the emotional nature of reflection. For true vampire fans, there's also lots of horror and terrifying moments."

    "Nope. It's not about vampires, it's about iguanas and their ability to bore you. Nor is it for college students, on either a comprehension or content level. The play is okay I guess, but its certainly not a vampire novel for college students. Go check out Twilight or something retarded like that."

    "After looking for a good vampire novel for a college student, I stumbled onto Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. I am left sorely disappointed, because while this may certainly be a novel for a college aged reader, the lack of vampirism as the central theme left me sorely wanting."

    "I am not familiar with this book or series, but it definitely fits the mold of what I am interested in here. The focus is on romance and vampires, and likely very well suited to anyone of a young adult age interested in this sort of novel. The user reviews are also very positive, and there are a fair number of them as well, suggesting it is a fairly popular series."

    "This novel does seem to fit the subject matter of being related to vampires but it's hard to say if college students are the target demographic. Also I am fairly certain that this would not make anyone's list of best novels with only a few average ratings. They'd be better off with something from the Twilight series I'd think."

    "Cole has created an amazing world on modern Earth. Inside her world, lore creatures, such as vampire and werewolves, exist without alerting humans to their presence. Her characters consist of strong women who are anything but damsels in distress and sexy tortured men who often must overcome their past before they can accept their fated mate. Even though some of her characters are thousand-year-old immortals, they frequently make hilarious pop culture references. The romance (sex) between characters is hot and steamy and leaves you wanting more. But the best part is how each character overcomes trials to win their mates. No two characters are the same and no two trials the couples endure are either. The detail she uses in the way she describes everything makes it easy to picture her sexy characters and fantastic world!"
