Carmilla (adapted) by Kim Turrisi






⭐⭐⭐



Book (which was first published in 1872 and is said to have influenced Bram Stoker’s treatment of Dracula) to web series to book, Carmilla seems to be destined to keep reappearing in different forms through eternity, just like the character in the story. This version is based on the madly popular web series which had everyone shipping Hollstein.

Laura Hollis enters Silas University to study journalism. Her roommate is a highly strung party animal, Betty, who soon goes missing. Laura sets out on a mission to find Betty. Her new roommate, the brooding, enigmatic Carmilla is a slob who completely disses Laura and her Betty-search mission. Then there are secondary characters including a genderqueer person.

This book is captures the breathless lunacy of the web series and the premise. It is fast paced and treats the crazy with an ironic seriousness. The only real problem is the repeated incorrect pronoun usage for the genderqueer LaFontaine.  

This is a quick, fun read for fans of the series and for fans of nonsensical absurd.
