    One of the worst books I've gone to the trouble of actually finishing.ly because I couldn't quite believe how wretched it was. Every time you think the plot can't get any more contrived, the protagonist more obnoxious, deeper it goes, like some urban-paranormal train-wreck.The main character is the second worst Mary-Sue in modern letters. We are to believe this drug-addled, morally vapid, sex-driven liesure-suited bargain-basement lothario keeps running into the Great Minds of history (Mozart, E [...]

    This book was completely unexpected for me. I am a HUGE Anne Rice fan and have loved her writing for years. At one point, a family friend recommended to me this book. Initially, I was intriqued because it was a book about vampires. Romkey is a master at taking something that will challenge your perceptions of things you know and twisting them to his purpose for telling an incredible story that takes its readers on a fantastic journey. In an effort to dispel the convoluted statement I have just m [...]

    When I was a teen in the late 90s, before the invasion of the Twihards, I loved all things vampire, particularly Anne Rice. I loved the interludes in history and the present, the lavish lifestlyes, the melodrama, and the broodiness (emo, before there was emo). I, Vampire was definetely written with these qualities in mind; depressed wealthy genius becomes a vampire and joins the ranks of, wait for it.mpiric Romonov princesses, Mozart (yes, that Mozart), Rasputin, and my personal favourite, Jack [...]

    I cannot say enough about this book. It's not what one would expect at all. I know I seem to read a lot of vampire novels but this one stands apart from all others in it's surprising characters, people you've actually heard of, and yes, they are vampires. It's so much fun and full of good humor and completely unbelievable but the story is gripping and I have read it more than once.

    This book was the goddamn worst. Absolutely hated it. I am so annoyed that I wasted so many hours reading it. This book is extremely anti-feminist. It is a novel written about a man who is one of those "really nice guys." He is constantly talking about how "real women" should act and let men take care of them. It states how new "enlightened women" are ruined. From a plot perspective just.what? This main character is a real basic male from Chicago who apparently for no reason just becomes the mos [...]

    Easily, one of the worst pieces of tripe I've ever read. It's the only time I've finished a book thinking "how bad can it get". It got pretty bad. Every cliche' you've ever seen in a vampire story was there.The "surprise" ending felt more like a punchline.The book's only redeeming quality is that it's thankfully a quick read.

    Terrible tacky vampire cheese. Dated, circa mid-80s. Overblown and campy. You might not be able to admit to yourself how much you are enjoying it. And wow, is it terrible. In the best possible ways.

    Pretty much a full-on “nah” for me. Maybe I’m spoiled by the vampire-themed books I loved so much by Rice, Kostova, Cronin, etc that they’ve affected how I read and rate books of a similar topic. Who knows, but this one didn’t work for me. I didn’t really care for the characters and it seemed a bit trite—others may feel different, though. Next.

    I must admit, when I first started reading this book, that it struck me as a rip-off of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. The protagonist, David Parker, is a new, sensitive, arts-loving vampire, unsure of all his new powers. I immediately thought of Louis. But, happily, any similarities ended there. In fact, Romkey has written an original vampire tale, to which he has added several sequels. David Parker is an unhappy lawyer, freshly divorced, terribly lonely, when he meets a beautiful and mysterio [...]

    Michael Romkey var någonting briljant på spåren. Den första halvan av denna vampyrroman var mörk, mystisk, konstnärlig och spännande. Den andra halvan utvecklas till ett stort Harry Potter-äventyr med Star Wars-vibbar där historiska karaktärer travas på varandra i en stereotypisk komplott. I övrigt uttrycker Romkey en konservativ heteronorm där protagonisten uttalar sig negativt om drag show-konceptet samtidigt som han själv lever efter en promiskuös norm som försvaras av att han [...]

    As I read through the first part of the book, I found it interesting that a vampire would choose to recount his life via journal entries. Though I was a little disappointed to find that it was a modern vampire and the book/journal was set in 1989. I suppose after reading Interview with the Vampire, the 80's was an alright setting. Reading further, I found that the main character was in a sense "perfect". Top lawyer, musician, came from a well-to-do family, married, has it all. Then it all falls [...]

    Very enjoyable, dense read - meaning lots of details and plot packed into each paragraph."I, Vampire" is the journey of an unhappy, highly successful attorney whose life is in a tailspin. Once he's turned into a vampire, not only must he adjust to life as a vampire, he finds himself thrown into a mysterious world that takes him from Chicago to Paris to Russia.The newly turned vampire struggles with all kinds of philosophical questions -- Am I good? Am I evil? In this fictional book, the vampire [...]

    This book received three stars from me because overall I did enjoy it.The historical figures intertwined into the story was a great treat for me. The words Romkey used to paint scenes in your mind were quite successful for me, they made me feel as though I were there.My key issue with this book was towards the end during the battle. It seemed almost contrived, as though Romkey had run out of ways to have them fight it out in the end. From the buildup through the book I expected much, much more, [...]

    We've all been there. Staring up at the top of the bookshelf, reading the mysterious titles with mounting curiosity, and finally constructing makeshift ladders in order to reach the books our parents didn't want us to notice. For me, I, Vampire was one of those books. I think I read it for the first time in sixth grade. I thought I was such a badass. (side note: this book is extremely graphic, and I'm surprised I'm not permanently scarred by the experience of reading it). It's an enjoyable read, [...]

    I've always loved the idea of vampires in history, and historical figures as vampires, so I really liked this. I love the inclusion of Russian history (always a plus for me), and Victorian Britain (yeahgotten into that lately. Thank you, Sherlock Holmes!).Anyway, I haven't read a vampire book in a while, and this one was really good, I thought. Hard to get thoughhad to find it in a secondhand book shop. Hopefully the sequels will be easier to find. Only problem I had was the datinge whole time t [...]

    This is an interesting novel with good points and bad. The story is mostly narrated by journal entries and other documents rather than by a narrator or the protagonists stream of consciousness. I find his living vampire theory to be well thought out and plausible without requiring "magic" or some other supernatural force. Unfortunately Romkey's ideas are better than his writing. I really wanted to like this novel more than I did.If you are looking for a Vampire Romance novel, this isn't one (eve [...]

    A good read for pre-Twilight vamp fans. I loved the use of real historical figures (especially my forever bad-boy love Cesare Borgia- even though he's a villain). I see that there are other books to this series and I can't wait to find them. Rasputin is a great character- his misunderstood-ness (is that a word?) and awesome powers of the mind made him the real hero for me.I know the Borgia's were very bad people, but I'm obsessed with them and was happily surprised to see Lady Lucrezia and Cesar [...]

    A vampire tale in the style of Anne Rice. David Parker, a disillusioned lawyer on the verge of suicide is saved by a Russian princess who turns him into a vampire. The novel is set out as his journal showing how he comes to terms with his vampire state, his dealings with other vampires and the human world. It's an old book so, as mentioned at the start, the vampires are reminiscent of Rice's Vampire Chronicles before the world's view of the undead was changed by Buffy and True Blood. It's sweepi [...]

    I have to admit it's been several years since I read this book, but it's one of the few (relatively speaking) vampire novels that survived a mass purge a few years ago, so I must have really liked it. Here's the first paragraph or so, slightly edited:"Women are my weakness. Or to be more accurate, I should say they are my greatest weakness, for I have many. Travel. Books. Classical music. Art. Excellent wine. And, formerly, cocaine."Now, how can you NOT like a book that starts out like that?

    I liked this book, but in a way it feels dated. Or perhaps it's just my macabre mind. I kept expecting the good guys to end up being bad guys and vice versa. Not sure why considering the historical figures involved, but I did. I'm very glad I read it. I think it should be more popular and more people who are into vampires should read this book. I think it's one I'll develop a keen appreciation for as I think about it more.

    I think that the writing itself is actually pretty good, but the main character is hard to like. He's a bit like a Gary Stu in a sense, in that everything seems to happen without him really taking much action. When he does take action, well. . seems to be in the interest of using his mental powers to increase his chances with women. His character just doesn't even out very well in my opinion.

    This amazingly good read is why my addiction to vampires begun. I love the idea of historical figures being vampires. The story is a wonderful blend of romance, horror, science fiction, fantasy, and a touch of history, that I would recommend to any vampire fan. David Parker is an immortal, caught in the classic battle between good and evil, using his love of the arts and poetry to keep him moving forward.

    I think I would have better appreciated this novel had I read it around the time I bought my copy (12 years ago!), when I was at the height of my vampire obsession. Nevertheless, it was nice to read a different take on the vampire lore, and to follow the initiation of this modern vampire into his new life. The story is also filled with interesting vampire characters such as Mozart, Jack the Ripper and the Borgias.

    I'm not usually into books about vampires but this series is an exception. It takes an interesting look at vampire lore by introducing historical figures into the mix. If used by a less talented writer, this could easily written off as a marketing gimmick - however, Romkey excels at telling a gripping tale of love and loss well before the time when sparkling vampires were the accepted form of storytelling.

    David Parker states, "women are my weakness." I, Vampire, is a journal of how Parker became a vampire and the obstacles he must defeat to live and find his love. Parker experiences how his actions as a mortal and vampire produce negative and postive consequences. I enjoyed the inclusion of history woven throughout the story.

    This book started my love for vampires, oh so long ago.They are not the same type of creatures today as they once were when this book got me hooked but I still thank Michael Romkey for starting my addiction :)

    A typical "Woe is he who is beautiful and lives forever." story, that is horribly cliche in the whole vampire genre but Michael Romkey takes the story and meshes it with familiar tidbits from history to make it something that is an enjoyable and quick read.
