    I was rather disappointed by this classic It started out with promise, especially the Jonathan Harker bits Then all the male characters descended into blubbering worshippers of the two female characters, and by the end of the novel, I was wishing Dracula could snack on all of them and be done with it I kept having to put it aside and read chapters in between other
