Intense, meaningful, and a classic!

Before reading this book, I was worried about what I've heard: It's boring, dull, lengthy... However, this book captured my imagination. I love the way it is structured and written. It is mysterious, exciting, and an awesome read. I loved it. =)

It just plain sucked

I've always been fascinated with vampires ever since seeing Bella Lugosi in 1931's film version of "Dracula". And after reading a few vampire novels I've been disappointed with how cheesey and over the top they have been. But nothing prepared me for the biggest let down of them all which was the mother of all vampire novels "Dracula". I found the pace slow and the story disjointed due to the fact it was pieced together from diary entries and the odd newspaper clipping. This made the flow of the story difficult for me to enjoy. Oddly enough we don't really to get meet the namesake of the book! He's just that creepy business man in the begining that Joanthan Harker deals who then turns into more of a menacing shadow to be hunted down to be killed at the end.

Classic

There really is no better way to describe than a classic! This is the reason they become classics. I love how all the myths and folklore have evolved from books like this. Always a great read. Even after the fifth time.

The Master

Stoker brought the vampire front and center in this epic tale. I can imagine how the victorians reacted to such guesome action. This is the true vampire classic. Anyone who loves vampires has to read it.
