I've read Dr. Florescu's books about Dracula and enjoyed them. This book I did not like as much. Part of it is undoubtably, I knew the theory he puts forward.

It is interesting, and it has some lovely pictures and facts; however, to much of it is simply rewritten conversations. To be honest, I also really don't like reading about other people's dreams (unless its fiction).
