really liked it

I learned in this book that flashbacks upon flashbacks are okay. And, that sometimes, the climax of a 600 page book is only one page long (so you have to go back and read it again). Despite those small complaints, I found this book riveting. I loved the dracula trivia and the mystery surrounding the enigma, inside the maze of this story. My mother and girlfriend said the book had a slow spot in the middle of a couple hundred pages. Perhaps, I sort of didn't notice. I thought the whole thing was pretty darn interesting.
