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.

Both classics for very good reasons, these books should be read especially by people who are familiar with the stories only from the movies.

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.
