Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1887 short story is so damn subtle finding out from other sources that this is suppose

    PDF Robert Louis Stevenson ✓ ✓ Olalla ePUB ✓ olalla ebok, Olalla PDF/EPUBA great gothic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson on a weekendBefore starting while I was going through the reviews on goodreads many people gave it only a single star complaining about a disappointing climax and weak hints of Vampirism I was a bit wary thus But for the first time I have a complete different experience than the first three reviews I read of the book on goodreads and really liked itFor a fellow escapist of the tropical heat as I am the story takes you to picturesue mountains of a long lost untouched Spanish countryside being described through the rationality of an English gentleman of good senses The story sits in the borderline of complete gothic horror as was Beam Stocker's Dracula and a human touch is given to those whom we deem inhuman as incestuous ancestry and superstition may argue with their own set of logics I like this aspect of Stevenson's idea of a story dealing with Vampirism or merely animalistic behavio

    PDF Robert Louis Stevenson ✓ ✓ Olalla ePUB ✓ olalla ebok, Olalla PDF/EPUBOh I do love a Gothic horror story I treat myself to 4 of the Penguin little black classics and this novella was the first I picked to read It's a story that purportedly influenced Bram Stokers DraculaI like the uote on the first page which says 'is it me you love friend or the race that made me?'This was a wonderful novella at once scary romantic threat and actual horror are all depicted here I thought his descriptions of the mountains the sky the black wind and the mournful wailing cries were very good also of the residencia falling into ruins in parts and the rooms where only spiders and ants now liveWas it a story of vampires or madness inbreeding or all of these? 35 but go on

    PDF Robert Louis Stevenson ✓ ✓ Olalla ePUB ✓ olalla ebok, Olalla PDF/EPUBI see that this seems to be getting uite a bit of hate so I'm going to do my bit and try and explain why I actually thoroughly enjoyed OlallaThis piece is said to have greatly influenced Bram Stoker's Dracula which was written over a decade later so automatically I found it a very interesting read It's the epitome of Gothic fiction at its conception; set in distant times and Catholic countries before its transition to the city and even the human psyche itself because such horrors were supposedly removed from their audience Protestants mainly and things like this could obviously only happen in 'less civilised' ages and places It's a story of diabolical revenges and family curses set in an ancient aristocratic mansion full of proud and corrupt Spanish nobles Although the family whom the story concerns are never explicitly exposed as 'vampires' there's a pretty ob

    PDF Robert Louis Stevenson ✓ ✓ Olalla ePUB ✓ olalla ebok, Olalla PDF/EPUBThis was an interesting little novella The hints of vampirism are incredibly subtle possibly a little too subtle? and the writing is uite verbose at times but overall the mood and tension that Stevenson evokes here is very well done The film adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula came to mind while reading thisAlthough I found the ending to be uite disappointing not amounting to much I enjoyed this little tale for what it was I wouldn't re read it though and if you want a really good vampire novella from a similar time then I would recommend Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu instead
