After reading Opium and Absinthe by Lydia Kang (which I highly recommend) I had to pull Bram Stoker’s Dracula back off the shelf. Ms. Kang opened each chapter with a quote from it and I just couldn’t resist revisiting the story.
It’s been so long since I read it that I honestly don’t even remember if I finished it the first time. It reads like a brand new story and I couldn’t be happier.
I forgot how much I love Van Helsing. With all the movies and shows, I had forgotten the written him. It honestly feels like catching up with an old friend. Also, Mina is just wonderful.
On the off chance you’ve never read the book, please do! There’s so much crammed into its pages that just cannot be translated to a visual medium. It is definitely worth the time spent.
