Rating: 3 stars.

This book was such a trip. If you were reading this, knowing NOTHING about vampires, I think it would be really scary trying to work out what was going on with Carmilla, and what she was. As it was, Carmilla kind of read to me as a relatable as hell young woman (up all night, sleeping until noon, rising only to drink chocolate? mood). This is a short read, and totally worth it if you're interested in old gothic literature and vampire lore. Or if you're interested in really, really thinly veiled anagrams. Seriously, they're ridiculously bad, and they spend ages looking at a painting of Carmilla labelled Mircalla and they don't even twig a tiny little bit.
