    "This is a decent solution as it provides a brief description of the book that hits on some of the topic. Although, it does lack any mention of violence. It should probably be expanded a bit to ensure the entire topic is covered."

    "This book has its pros and cons. The first being that it truly was revolutionary for its time, with the undertones of the lesbian vampires. Even though Le Fanu does not spell it out, you if you pick up on the clues you can see it. Great book"

    "I've read this in college, and back then I thought the story was a crawl. I still do now. But still, it is a good book. "

    "Carmilla was mentioned in Psycho Pass. She talks about this thriller in her own book. Her gaze darts from both her friend to a mysterious, new stranger. "

    "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 is a great book for people who are looking for a book about lesbians, as this is a young adult novel written with that in mind. "

    "I was looking for something different to read in the warewolf genre and came across Carmilla. I would say this book was more geared toward vampires not werewolves. I don't feel like this solution is a good fit for this topic. "

    "I like the story of Carmilla because it is a love story combined with a horror story. I like that there is a female vampire. I also like that it is scary without being gory. I did like the characters and plot as well."

    "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."

    "Carmilla was a good book but it better geared for the younger minds. I would recommend this book for a teenager."
