FINALLY FINISHED. I can’t even recall how long it took me to finally read this book, but it is done. Classic story of Dracula, the one that started it all actually, told through the written diaries of several main characters. I did like this book, but halfway through I grew bored of reading and I didn’t want to force myself back into the Victorian, old writing style. Not sure if it is actually Victorian but that’s what I’m calling it for now. Same as Jane Eyre. For me, this was one of those books that was creepy and scary in the good way, not the ‘oh I’m trying to create suspense and arn’t you terrifed by what you are reading’ kind of way. You can really picture yourself there sometimes and Dracula makes a hell of a scary character. I am glad that I finished this book and can add it to my hopefully growing collection of classic novels. 3.5-4 rating by me.
