    Has anyone read the original Dracula book? It looks kind of interesting. Is it good?

    I've always enjoyed it very much but it's written in the style of more than a century ago so if you don't like that sort of language you may find it dense going. But it's worth it to read one of the original sources. I like it a lot better than Polidori which is really hard to read.

    It's good, yes. A worthy read.

    I have read it - i thought that the first part where Johnanthon Harker first stays in castle Dracula was superb and very eerie but it did seem to drag on towards the end. It is not an all action horror novel- not by a long shot

    I didn't expect or hope for that.
