The first few chapters of this book are really great. You learn alot about the vampire myth and the inspirations for Bram Stoker. My favorite part was about all of the unkown authors who wrote about this myth. Also you learn still more about what an uber mega tool Lord Byron was. How he stole a man's ideas and drove him to suicide.
