any other sexual orientation. This is a fascinating piece of writing that will please for many many years to come and more for what it is 'Vamp Pires' a take on words.
As Ingrid herself has pointed out several times on filmed interviews; 'she loves men' and when she was making the film, Carmilla,
the term lesbian did not enter her mind. Read this book and you will understand. The Vampire fans will know this too.
I hope I enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed and never forgot the film; though this was probably due to Ingrids full on performance. Long Live
the Late Ingrid Pitt and long live this little book of horrors. 👻 Enjoy !
Laura is a normal teenager who spends her days listening to Justin Bieber and smoking meth. Well, she would if they had been invented, but they haven't so instead she spends her days moping around her dad's house, a large, draughty castle in the mountains in Austria.
Her biggest wish is to have a friend and she finds one in the most expected way, when a carriage has an accident right outside their castle. The beautiful young Carmilla is taken in and nursed back to health, becoming Laura's BFF in the process.
Only thing is, Carmilla is really friendly. She likes kissing Laura's neck and talking about how the two of them will probably die together. Also, a mysterious plague has struck the nearby village, and young girls are being found dead each morning.
Never mind Twilight, what Carmilla most closely resembles is Let The Right One In. There's a creeping sense of dread on every page, a hypnotic rhythm to the way Laura tells her story and the ache of teenage loneliness at the heart of it.
It's quite brilliant. If you're a vampire fan of any stripe and you haven't read this, you should get cracking now.
