I agree fully with this. Van Helsing was just introduced and his style is a little difficult to follow. Then there are the Lucy-related bits that are just repeated too many times, and I found Renfield boring on the first read.
I think that I'm enjoying it more now, although I still have quite a bit to go.
You should read the Icelandic translation of Bram's Dracula... there's half-ape vampires... no joking. It goes far astray from the original and there's sort of this myth around who exactly wrote it, or authorized the rather wild changes in the story.
