Publisher's Summary

This was the very first vampire thriller! Pure innocence becomes the target of age-old evil. Virtuous Laura has grown up in a solitary castle and longs for a close friend. Her wish seems granted with the arrival of a beautiful and mysterious stranger named Carmilla. A friendship develops but the brooding mood and sexual overtones mar Laura's happiness. Will she escape with her life and spirit? Megan Follows' brilliant reading perfectly evokes the dramatic atmosphere of this Gothic Victorian tale. This tale was the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula!

Great story, but passages unnecesarily censored.

One of the unsung pioneers of the vampire genre, well worth reading. I love the atmospheric prose and the plot twists, classic and yet very imaginative. The reading is professional and enjoyable, and I enjoye dit even though I believe a British accent would add to the experience. I can't, however, award it five stars because the text is censored, which I find patronising and annoying. Stating that this is an unabridged version is untrue and misleading. My trust in Audible products is diminished by this.
