    "This solution lacks information on what the book is about. It would have been useful to include something like "This book supplies nearly 500 exhaustive essays digging deep into the lore, the myths, and the reported realities of vampires and vampire legends from around the world " However, it does provide the author, date of publication, and category (non-fiction) which is useful."

    "Vampires, Burial and Death is an extremely comprehensive book on the folklore of vampires. The author details how the folklore started, and why it continues today. The only drawback is that it can be a bit repetitive, but it is still a great read for anyone interested in learning more about vampires."

    "I've always been fascinated by vampires but never knew the real-life "origin story" of the legend. This is a very interesting historical look at Vlad the Impaler and his life. Very good read."

    "I suppose if you are into vampire literature, this could be a non fiction book for you. I however don't believe that vampires are real, nor should these type of gothic books be made. These exploits nothing but erotic imagination that implores vampire mythology. These books should be nothing less than free, as I wouldn't pay to read it in book form or even on my kindle. Not impressed."

    "I have always been interested by vampires as long as it still has the classical dark tone from the old days to it. That being said, it does seem that this novel keeps that tradition alive, allowing me to at the very least, give this one my endorsement! "

    "This is a really neat book for anyone interested in exploring vampires beyond the typical novels that are out there. The Science of Vampires gives a lot of solid information about the history of vampires while staying fun. It's a thorough exploration of how mythologies are built and I loved how it integrated science and psychology."
