Read from January 19 to February 24, 2011

Difficult decision between giving this book three stars or four stars. Ideally, would have likes to give it three and a half.

The book boasts of an extravagant plot, and I loved the journey as The Count exacts terrible vengeance upon his enemies,and makes it all look so stylish and easy.

Granted, things fall in place for him way too easily, but I am willing to overlook that point. Also, some of the characters are overly dramatic and the ladies faint at the drop of a hat, but these seem to be characteristics of romance literature in general, so that's alright.

It's a long book, yes, but it is rewarding, and the language is nice, albeit very dated (Duh!!)
