What were people's general impressions of the book?|
I was surprised at the structure of the book, being entirely constructed of correspondence and journals. It was so cool!
I was also really impressed with how real and comprehensive it felt. I watched the Francis Ford Coppolla version of the movie last night, which is reasonable true to the book. It really does make for a gripping story (and go Gary Oldman!!!)
I thought it was really interested to take the conventional horror that we are used to but to get a sense of how it fitted into a society of time past. The implications are interesting and it makes you wonder what would have happened had it not been for Dr Van Helsing... I think London would have had a great deal less blood in it!
