This book has been on my 'to read' list for quite a while. About this time is when I start getting excited about Halloween and thought it would be a great start! It's always interesting to read a book written over a hundred years ago. I found this one particularly interesting because it's actually written as a compilation of letters, newspaper clippings, and diary entries.
Literary vampires have come a long way in the last century it seems. The Count wasn't all sparkly in the sun, and better yet, he could control wolves. The Twilight debate of Edward vs Jacob becomes much less interesting if Edward ever gets wind of that information.
So the real question should be Edward Cullen vs Count Dracula.
You've got a perpetual high school student who's shiny and melodramatic and likes to creep by teen girl's beds at night while they sleep or a rich creepy old guy with a giant rundown castle in Transylvania and an uncanny knowledge of late 19th century British real estate laws.
You know what, you can have them both, I'll take Eric.
