really liked it
bookshelves: 2012
Read from July 19 to September 14, 2012

Read with the kids. I could write a whole piece on how Stoker's treatment of women ticked off my daughter. Mina Harker and Lucy's wedding fixation and helplessness drove Emme nuts. Emme also couldn't stand the whole: Mina was as 'smart as a man' attitude. Otherwise, Dracula was still a fascinating piece of fiction that captured the anxieties and stresses of proto-modernist age (sex, feminism, technology, scientific method, xenophobia, etc). The annotated version was in equal parts helpful and distracting.
