I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.


Cover of Dracula.

Dracula is over one hundred years old, by now (the book, not the vampire!). It has aged, but not to the point that it is unreadable. It’s slow-going and stuffy at times, but I found that much more bearable in an epistolary work than in regular novels. The plot itself is so well-known that I don’t think I can judge it very well. Some parts of it (the Texan, oh gods) are hilarious, some parts just annoying (Harker, mostly).
