What the community says about Carmilla
- "My daughter came out of the closet recently, and I'm so proud of her. I bought her this novel because she's a fan of thriller and romance novels. Though I haven't read the book myself, this one seems to combine elements of both. It seems a stretch to call it a horror novel, though. "
- "This book is basically a version of Bram Stoker's Dracula but geared toward lesbians. It certainly was revolutionary for its time, but I find the writing somewhat stilted and cliche. But that's probably expected when the author is writing a character that he has no personal understanding of. ""@ Elizabeth Nichols, Your faulty, and simplistic aside, you should really do a modicum of investigating before saying things like, "This book is basically a version of Bram Stoker's Dracula but geared toward lesbians. . .", as Carmilla predates Dracula by a quarter-century. If one were to employ your method of comparison by reducing stories to be attempts to copy their earliest literary predecessor, then Dracula (1897) would be "basically a version of" Carmilla (1872), or The Vampyre (1819). That's setting aside all the examples in mythology, and folklore, of course."
