Miss Bookiverse
Diese Anthologie enhält klassische Vampir-Geschichten von 1819 bis 1924 und von Bram Stoker bis Sherlock Holmes. Das Buch selbst ist sehr schön aufgemacht, tolles Seitenlayout, passend gewählte Schriftart und ein blutrotes Leseband im Kontrast zum restlichen, vorherrschenden Schwarz.
Die Geschichten selbst sind schön aufbereitet, das meiste sind Auszüge und zu Beginn jeder Story wird kurz die Enstehung und der bisherige Verlauf erläutert.
Das Geschriebene an sich ist das, was man erwartet. Klassis

I bought this to read to a 12 year old girl. I wanted to show her how beguiling and good scary a character can be. This is small chapters from some of the best and first vampire stories written. I loved it and so did she.

Also the version I have is a small beautifully made hardback copy with quality foiling and embossing, which also enticed me to pick it up. I'm sure I am not alone in buying a book just because it looked beautiful.
