I read Frankenstein first. This book I'd rate two stars. Slow start, but the fifth chapter was as good as promised. Terrifying premise, and very real. And then some of the later chapters switched to philosophical treatise, which wasn't as interesting. I skipped over a lot of those. The story of how this novel evolved was the amazing part; the author was only 18/19, Lord Byron challenged her and other writers to write a horror story, and she had this dream.

Exaggerating and Thrilling and suspense Murdery ...

Having of course seen the movies and variations on the movies, I thought this would be enjoyable. Both books were far from the modern fiction and most enjoyable. Dracula particularly with the descriptions of the visit to the castle.

I didn't read Frankenstein, too much of the same context and genre for me. Sometime I'll get to Shelley's book, but right now I need some modern romance.
David
Both classics for very good reasons, these books should be read especially by people who are familiar with the stories only from the movies.
Joanie
Even though I didn't love either book that much I loved that they were combined in one volume here. The two books are just meant to be together.

Two classic horror stories merged into one book, i don't think modern horror could touch these two.
