A truly wonderful classic! Stoker definitely wrote a tale for the ages with this one, and to him I say: Thank you.
Dracula’s story is quite interesting, it would, I think, be as much a classic to have a sort of ‘behind the scenes’ look into his life and his half of the story, since we only see his parts when he interacts with the others. Perhaps there was some motive as to why he became a vampire not expressed thus in this version of the story, maybe there was a reason he chose the women he did, as his companions, maybe there was a reason a new vampire only hunted small children at first. I am left with much to think about as to the nature of Vampires after reading this wonderful story.
