    1. Disappointingly superficial look at the legend of the vampire. The organization of the book seemed to encourage constant repetition of information. And, the pointless style of writing the text in a manner that suggests there's an uncertainity about myth and reality was quickly irritating. The potential saving grace were the accompanying illustrations - drawings, stills, artful photos. No wonder this one had remained unread for so long on my bookshelf.


    2. While the book is filled with unmistakeably remarkable images and quick facts about Vampires and the Undead, it is also exceptionally vague. The book discusses Vampires in the most simplistic terms, never touching on the multitude of unusual or unknown Vampire Myths.If you're a new comer in your interest for the Undead, and a novice in Vampire myth, this book is exceptional at touching base with all the basics. I recommend it, It's an ample reference. Otherwise, you may wish to spend your time a [...]


    3. 1st Read: February 3, 2015 - February 9, 2015It was just OK for me in the sense that it follows similar books dealing with this same subject matter. I can't really say that I learned anything new about vampires and legends of them. People are always going to buy these types of books. You win some and you lose some.


    4. This book isn't inspired, or original. And that's alright. Those thick, glossy pages with all the pictures and artwork make great collaging material.Honestly, it isn't good for much else. Tries to give an overview of all things vampire. Naturally, given that it covers folklore, history, and pop culture, it only skims the surface of each.


    5. I love this book. It is beautiful (well, that is, if you find misty cemeteries and weeping angel statues beautiful) and atmospheric. It's the perfect book to browse through in late October to get you in the mood! Vampire is also a nice intro to Vampire Lore and Legend. All the major players are accounted for. I've received many vampire books as gifts but this one is definitely #1.


    6. This novel is one of my favorites about vampire mythology. It gives the beliefs of many different cultures and time periods concerning vampires, and it goes into wonderful detail. If someone's going to write a vampire novel or series, this book is one of the best refernce books to have.


    7. This book was good. Took us through the begins of vampire legends and on through to Dracula and Lord Ruthven. We discuss Vald Dracul and his influence on Bram Stoker while he wrote Dracula. All in all a great book for anyone interested in the origins of vampires.


    8. Utterly silly book, which is not an anthropological or folkloric take on the vampire legend, survey of the vampire in fiction, history of vampire beliefs, or "non-fiction" handbook of vampire lore, but a combination of all approaches in an unsatisfactory manner.


    9. When this book came out 17 years ago, I had to buy it right away. The photographs are beautiful and it contains lots of information about vampires and their legend.





    10. Read this one about 12 years ago. Great info, feed my hunger well. I should find a new copy, I would like to read it again.


    11. Interesting tidbits on all things Vampy. Everything you need to know from the anatomy of to how to kill one.
