    One thought on “The Vampyre: And Other Writings

    1. Danielle on said:

      Read only "The Vampyre" if you're really interested in early vampire tales, do not read for the prose. It's dull, distant, emotionless, tedious. I managed to get right to the end of the book, about page 186 (John William Polidori's diary) and I could not continue, I'm not strong enough. It seems the writer is just as dull as his prose.
