Not very slay :/ enjoyed it quite a bit but not for the reasons Bram Stoker intended. Renfield is the best character.

I went into this book with high expectations, having just finished and enjoyed Frankenstein, I found it to leave me wanting. Hard to follow with constantly changing perspectives. The pace was terribly slow, leaving me bored quickly. I gave up on chapter seven.

Dracula's horror has a kind of slow burn that makes it very hard to capture in movie form. This also makes it, for those of us who are used to more thriller-like horror, or for those who are already aware of vampires as a concept, a bit of a slow read. There are times when the book drags on, most notably the newspaper sections and legal proceedings. It is rife with that classic British brand of racism, which while expected, is no more pleasant than it would be now. It also has a good bit of that 19th century sexism which is annoying, if only because of how repetitive it becomes, and how much of a hindrance to the plot it is.
All in all, an interesting read, but a good bit of the charm and suspense is lost to the changing principals of time.
