VOTO: 6,5Le storie sono carine ma lette nel 2009-quasi-2010 da un 21enne che tra film e telefilm ne ha viste di tutti i colori non possono fare paura... A malapena qualche minimo brividino. Riconosco però il fatto che probabilmente la maggior parte della gente che le ha lette nell'8oo (con annesse superstizioni e scarsa scienza [rispetto a oggi]) si sia cagata addosso. Inutile dire che il racconto più bello è Carmilla! Un vero e proprio antefatto di Dracula. Ecco, questo mi è piaciuto tanto! ( )

I read another collection of Le Fanu's stories late last year, and some of the stories from that book overlap with this one. Like the previous book, it took a bit of effort for me to read because of the language, but the stories were mostly chilling. What truly stands out for me, however, was the title story Carmilla, a classic vampire tale pre-dating Bram Stoker's Dracula. The story is sensual and compelling, and it is easy to see why it's become a classic! (Incidentally, I bought the book 12 years ago, at the height of my vampire obsession, just for that story.) ( )
