So, when I read Gerald Durrell's My Family and Other Animals, he made friends with a guy named Theo who was a naturalist, among other things. Gerry would visit Theo and talk about critters. Also, it seems, Theo had a wonderful library, one that included oodles of books about wild life, but also myst...

This was my first reading of this classic tale of dark secrets written in 1872. 1872?! That fact stuns me after finally giving this a novella read. There is a quite a surprising amount of sexuality for such an ancient tome or did the world get ever more prudish as the years went by? There were lesbi...

So this is a short book, today it would be a novelette and the publishers apparently decided that 85 pages of story needed a 37 page introduction and 72 pages of other matter. I should have skipped the other stuff. It turned the story into a school read and I was not well disposed to that. The foot...

I read this book for the “Classic Horror” square of my 2017 Halloween Bingo card.I know that I owned this book way back when! I think I bought it through the Scholastic Books program at our school during Grade 6. I’m pretty sure that I remember a sense of creeping horror when I read it, but I didn’t...

After my re-read of this classic, I give Carmilla 3.5 stars. I loved the atmosphere and the language, even if I thought it was a bit too flowery at times. I know that it's wrong to judge a work of this age by today's standards, but man, everyone in this book seemed stupid and too naive to be beli...

by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu Carmilla pre-dates Bram Stoker's Dracula by 26 years, but has some similar themes. It is the story of a young woman, Laura, who comes under the influence of a female vampire, who first comes to her when she is a child, comforting her in her bed. The narrative has the s...

So I purchased the illustrated version of this book which didn't pop up on BL so I just chose a version. So the only reason why I didn't give this book five stars is that there are some threads that never got tied up to satisfy me towards the end of the book. One of those threads was who was Carm...

Docked some stars because the general's niece's story was one huge repetition of the story so far, and it got booooooring. That said, I'm mind-boggled by the barely conceiled, heavy lesbian undertones. There are a couple of scenes that are thinly disguised orgasms and one that could easily be read...

I'm not even sure why I gave this two stars. Vampires just don't interest me. I think I was spoiled by Yarbro's St. Germain series; nothing else comes close. I knew part of the basic story of Carmilla so there was nothing particularly surprising in the reading of it. Everything was predictable...
