One of my favorite books of all times. The book is one long literary allusion to "Carmilla" and "Dracula"; it's a fantastically spun thriller; it explores sexuality and mental illness within the confines of an extremely oppressive environment. And it just gets better with every re-read. ( )

Hard going, not my stile. Reminds me of [b:Let the Right One in|8731203|Let the Right One in|Anne Billson|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348010760s/8731203.jpg|13604234] a book and a rather strange film which left out major plot point of the book, only hinting at them. As I have bought the film, I may opt to just see the film without reading the whole book. Given the structure of the writing, I cannot even skim the pages to see if it gets better. A case if tl;dr, possibly.
Trying to get to 30%; but still under 10%. Might decide to abandon this long before 30%.
Or I will read a few comments on the film and the book to decide that.

Claustrophobic, gothic dark. Is Ernessa a vampire? A hallucination built from the unnamed narrator’s fears and desires? An ordinary girl? The narrator is a boarder in her junior year (so she’s 16/17) at an all-girl American high school in the 1970s. She’s dealing with the aftermath of her poet father’s suicide and her now fraught relationship with her mother. Her diary records her version of often disturbing events while living in the adolescent pressure cooker of The Residence, where easy access to drugs opens doors between reality and... Psychosis? Or the other reality? This book ambitiously aims to keep the narrative ambiguous to the end. And while I never believe, I suspect this just means I’m the wrong age. (Though it did lead me to rewatch Normal Again from season six of Buffy. Oh my.) ( )

There isn't seem to be anything really special about the story. It was written like a teenager and it read like teenage drama. Sadly there was suicide and death to deal with. And to stay true to the authenticity there is no shortage of fickle friendships. ( )

Pros:
* Epistolary style
* Unreliable narrator
* Gothic horror - think "Turn of The Screw"
* Beautiful prose

Cons:
* Slow build
* Unresolved story points (i.e. Mr Davies)

Because this is the journal of an unreliable narrator who is slowing going crazy, you never really know what has or has not happened.

But you also get beautiful sentences like, "The girl was self-absorbed, but she was also excruciatingly alive, as if had been born without skin." ( )
