it was ok
bookshelves: vampire-romance, fiction
Read in December, 2010

I need to begin by stating that I wanted to love this book. (Who wouldn’t, the cover is gorgeous, right?) This is supposedly the “real” tale of Dracula from Mina’s point of view (not some fantasy made up by Bram Stoker.) And so I started reading. And reading. And I continued to read through the meandering babbling of Mina Murray’s thoughts, feelings, and actions. All this I could forgive if I could just meet Dracula. Based on the title Dracula in Love I figured that there was going to be a lot of interactions between Mina and Dracula. Dracula IN love. That means that Dracula is doing SOMETHING, right? Or at least a main character in the book? Well, the reader doesn’t meet Dracula until about 100 pages from the end of the book. Very disappointing. And Dracula didn’t act how I wanted him to act. The only thing this book did for me was increase my hatred of Jonathan Harker.
