    Any kind of point that could be of value is drowned in smug puns. I many times found myself rereading sections over and over not because the ideas were complex but because the wording was convoluted in a way you get the impression the author is extremely satisfied with. Simplistic explanations of vampirism (seriously, not EVERYTHING is Oedipal) that are made almost impossible to decode. Sorry for the irrational anger at this book. I'm probably just frustrated over unrealized lust for my dad.

    There are lots of great ideas in these lectures, but the style is a bit post-modern for my taste. Having been a lecturer for 18 years, I found that straightforward exposition of ideas generally worked best. Nevertheless, I found quite a lot that we informative here. It certainly added to my list of "must watch" vampire movies. See more at my blog: Sects and Violence in the Ancient World.

    Don't expect a normal "lit crit" book that's easy to follow. Reading this is really like listening to a series of brilliant lectures. Best of all, there are so many seeds of ideas that you can use to jump-start your own thinking. One thing I especially love is the focus on older forms of vampirism, which seem much closer to zombies.

    I had a lot of hope for this book. It was written by a fellow who teaches a college class on vampires. Neat, right? This book is so needlessly dense it's almost impossible to read. It sucks all the fun out of an otherwise interesting idea.

    I saw this in a bookstore and remembered that I had it at one time. I am not sure I finished it, and in any case it wasn't memorable. Great cover, though!

    I've waiting a long time to read this; I could have waited longer. Anything informative or useful was utterly overwhelmed by the irritating, superior, smug voice of the narrative.

    Didn't finish this.
