"Green Tea" is another chilling example of a classic horror story. Dickens himself was fascinated by the work of Le Fanu and printed Le Fanu's "Green Tea" in his periodical, All the Year Round (1869).

Review of Carmilla & Green Tea
The text of this gothic vampire saga is both engaging and simultaneously convoluted. The unexpected yet appropriate modesty of sentiment tricks the brain momentarily. I found myself translating (and appreciating)the intrinsic definitions we often overlook. That being said, the narrator had their challenge no doubt. I was disappointed by the outcome. The flow of the narration was somewhat stilted, reminescent of early acting efforts to vitalize a role. Subtle changes in volume, tone and tempo were used to differentiate characters. Unfortunately it was difficult to differentiate a slow Southern drawl from the narrator's effort to capture the essence of langor.
The story was predictable, the characters lacked depth and substance and the narration was amateurish. I rated this audibook two stars.

Bram Stoker he's not
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
For those who are deeply interested in the development of the vampire stories, this might prove enjoyable.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The narrator of the Carmilla story was weak and the voice she uses for the Carmilla character seems misguided. The narrator of the Green Tea story was fun to listen to.
Any additional comments?
Overall, as someone who is not a fan of the vampire genre and does not really understand it's appeal, I found this a dull "read". (Green Tea is not a vampire story.)
