    In many ways the antithesis of Dracula, and if Stoker s novel disappointed me with its clean cut, heterosexual male influenced dichotomies, than le Fanu s novella is the flipside of the coin female centric, homoerotic, ambiguous and enigmatic and all in about a quarter of the length Here the vampire is not the withered, e...

    PRETTY AVERAGE I don t feel like I particularly learned anything It was a very monotone and non climactic Very quaint And the giant plot twist was spoiled for me i mean, it d be spoiled for anyone living in 2015 because it s SO OBVIOUS but I really feel that that spoilers shouldn t have the power to ruin a story, but I really feel that all this book had was that one spoiler.I still see merit in it, don t get me wrong I read it for school and after intense studying I can see value in it, PRETTY AVERAGE I don t feel like I particularly learned anything It was a very monotone and non climactic Very quaint And the giant plot twist was spoiled for me i mean, it d be spoiled for anyone living in 2015 because it s SO OBVIOUS but I really feel that that spoilers shouldn t have the power to ruin a story, but I really feel that all this book had was that one spoiler.I still see merit in it, don t get me wrong I read it for school and after intense studying I c...

    Note, Oct 1, 2012 I just modified this review slightly to incorporate a changed perspective I came to as a result of a discussion in one of my groups.This book is one of the best treatments of the vampire theme I have read admittedly, I haven t read very many even counting the ones I didn t like enough to finish While the author s diction is Victorian, the book is a short, quick read unlike the massive tomes that some 19th century novels ...

    ..Here it is OCTOBER and I m stumped at finding a good scary read so I reverted to the GR list of Best Horrorthen moved on to Best Gothic Books Of All Time and found this little gem...While not scary, CARMILLA is indeed an atmospheric well told story and one of the earliest works of vampire fiction First published in 1872, CARMILLA predates even DRACULA bythan 25 years...It all begins w...
