Carmilla: A Review
Carmilla is an evil, crafty, blood-thirsty vampire.
She is also a lesbian.
Need I say more?
(You could also argue that she is bisexual, but that’s besides the point.)
In contrast to The Vampyre, Carmilla focuses more on character and plot development. And by that I mean more detail. Our main protagonist is also a woman, which is a refreshing change, even if she does end up as the damsel in distress (curse those evil vampires!).
What else is there to say, other than you can expect this vampire story to be just that: a vampire story. It’s a little bit longer than The Vampyre, but it is still a fairly quick read.
Should you read it? Of course!
It’s still a better love story than Twilight.
