Review: Carmilla

Carmilla
Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I finished this book in a day and it was quite interesting. A novella about a lesbian vampire succubus was quite refreshing and interesting. I could tell throughout the novel that Carmilla was posing as several different people with anagrams of her own name and was killing people around her. Still it was intriguing to watch her seduce Laura the narrator and how they would resolve her killing everyone around her. It predates Dracula which makes it even more interesting as one of the first vampire texts. A classic I would recommend.
