It took me a year and a half, but I did it–I have read Bram Stoker’s 1897 edition of Dracula. Some parts were vivid and entertaining. Other parts were brief and lacking. But, ultimately, it was an interesting book. I found particularly intriguing the way the power of God was involved. God’s will and mercy had a respectable part in the story, so that, no matter how powerful Dracula or his vampires might have been, there were limitations involved; in the struggle of good versus evil, good was the stronger. Also of a noteworthy point: Dracula could change form, and not merely into a bat. Furthermore, he could seemingly control mist and fog, and his vampires could take the form of mist. I’d like to see Edward Cullen do that!
