Anne Rice Vampires Are Better Than Stephanie Meyers?

Updated on July 27, 2014

Which Vampires Are Better, Twilight Vampires or Anne Rice Vampires?

Stephenie Meyer's Vampires Better Than Anne Rice's?

I've been reading vampire books for many years now and Anne Rice is definitely my favorite one. Although I did enjoyed reading the Twilight Saga Books, I find the Anne Rice Vampires more erotic, scarier than the Stephenie Meyer vampires.

Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, are the best vampire books I'd have ever read, and I have read many. I mean there is no way you can compare Lestat, Armand and Marius with any of the Cullens. I'm sorry twilight fans, but that's the truth! I also like Twilight but the fact is that Anne Rice knows how to write about vampires better than Stephenie Meyer.

That's my opinion, now, let me know what you think. Do you prefer Stephenie Meyer's vampires or Anne Rice's?

The Old School Vampires

Anne Rice's vampires have a very classic and elegant look, very old school. Anne Rice write about scary, horrifying but yet erotic and sensual vampires. She follows the same rules as many other have about vampires. These vamps are not someone to make friends with, these are not the Cullens. they would ripe you in pieces even before you could react.

The way Anne Rice describe her vampires is in a very dark and classy way. These vampires are very old, some are even more than 3,000 years old.


Modern and Chic Vampires

The vampires in Stephenie Meyer's world are very different from the regular, old school vamps we were used to read about. For me, vampires wore dark, classic clothes, but when I read Twilight I found that not only vampires were cool, but they dressed very modern and chic.

Stephenie Meyer portraits her vampires as very fashionable and very in style! They all looked like models wearing designers clothing!

Anne Rice's Vampires Are More Erotic and Sensual

Not only Anne Rice's Vampires are scarier and more dangerous, they are definitely more sensual and erotic than Stephenie Meyer's vampires. The sexual tension between the vampires in Anne Rice's books are incredible, suitable for real hardcore vampire fans!

The sexual tension between Lestat and Akasha was very strong, powerful and of course terrifying! i think their chemistry was better than Edward and Bella.

Twilight's Vampire Love is More Juvenile

I know Twilight was written for young teen girls, and that's why the romance is so juvenile. But still, young people don't act like that when they are in love. They are very immature and selfish at times. Twilight's romance was very unreal and that gives false hopes for young girls who are reading the books. They think all guys are like Edward and that's not true.

The fact that a vampire is so lovely dovely with his girlfriend is very funny to me. He is supposed to be a vampire, a scary creature, who only lurks his prey for one reason and one reason only... to KILL THEM!

I did enjoy reading twilight, but I think Anne Rice's vampires are far more erotic and sexual. Like vampires should be.

Which Romance Do You Think Was Hotter?

Anne Rice or Stephenie Meyer?

Stephenie Meyer's Vampires Sparkle In The Sun

Yes, they don't burn like we used to think, no, Stephenie Meyer's vampires sparkle in the sunlight. It's very different from what we were told to believe within the vampire mythology. Not only they sparkle, but they don't drink human blood, they called themselves vegetarians because they only drink animal blood. Which doesn't make sense to me. The whole reason they are vampires is to kill and drink human blood.

But of course, this is Stephenie Meyer's world, and she can make her vampires be they way she want them to be... I think!@

Vampires Are Supposed To Burn In The Sunlight

I don't know, but I'm pretty sure vampires could not be in the sunlight because they get burn. For many years, vampire folklore has been telling us this but, all of the sudden Mrs. Meyer decided that her vampires would just sparkle in the sunlight. Well I don't know about you, but this does not sound scary and terrifying like vampires should sound like.

I don't know, what do you think?

Do You Prefer Them To Burn or To Sparkle?

Anne Rice's Female Vampires Are Stronger Characters

I have to admit that Anne Rice's female vampire characters are much stronger than Stephenie Meyer's. For example: Stephenie Meyer's female vampires, Rosalie and Alice are very simple and almost fun characters. They don't drink human blood, they don't kill humans, at all! and they even make friends with the humans.

On the other hand, Anne Rice's female vamps, like my favorite one of all, Akasha, could vanish Stephenie Meyer's girls in one breath. This character is so strong, so powerful and so evil, it makes her the most terrifying vampire alive! She is to be the oldest of the vampires and the first one to be ever created. Akasha is very powerful and lethal! She is THE QUEEN OF THE DAMNED.

You think you can change my will? I've had enough of this discussion. Join me or die! ... Akasha, Queen of the Damned

      Great debate and great lens. Anne Rice for me! I read all of her books including the ones about Jesus as a young boy. I like her historical novels.

      They're in a different level despite of the same genre.

      Let's give Meyer a chance to prove herself with her succeeding books, maybe she will improve her style in time.

      I don't like either one of them for my vampire novels, Rice's writing is too dry and Meyers is just too stupid. But in a contest between the two, I'd pick Rice. At least I managed to get through all of her books!

      Anne Rice has a romance that was totally missing from Twilight... not the romance between Akasha and Lestat persay but the entire culture, the entire world... the whole mythology is romantic. If I wanted emo from a vampire I'd just read bad poetry on livejournal.

      I liked reading the twilight series, but I actually prefer Anne Rice. I really preferred how she made a book for a few of the vampires, giving them a backstory and getting to really know who vampires, like lestat and armand really were. Yeah, Stephanie did this too, but it would have been nice to read about them some more(like alice :D:D:D) That would of totally been awesome. But since I read Anne Rice's books best, I really think she's the best. It just seems more realistic to me and the stories behing claudia and louis' relationship is awesome, but tragic...

      Vampires have become less and less malevolent as they become romantic heroic figures. They are more like humans with superpowers and not the living dead. I remember a movie called "Old Dracula" where the vampire played by the late great actor David Niven had his butler use a stopwatch when biting his victim. This protected them from becoming vampires or being killed.

      I definitely like Anne Rice's works better, but was pretty confused when she started morphing from vampires to religious fiction. In any case, it was exciting recently to hear that she's releasing a video book soon and it will be from some of her older stuff.

      Queen of the Damned was my favorite Anne Rice book and Eclipse is my favorite Stephanie Meyer book, but I also was really enthralled with Breaking Dawn and New Moon with all the Native folklore. Stephanie Meyer has surely won me over.

      Great job on your lens. Interesting the way you compare the authors' work. I enjoy both authors for what they are and how each of them writes. The Twilight Saga is definitely more appealing to the younger crowd.

      This is great fun! I am very familiar with Anne Rice's vampires, but you've made a great case for the more adult and erotic versions of vampires. Personally I love them all!!
