I enjoyed this book immensely, and can really see why it is named as a classic! Many ‘classic’ novels, I can’t see the worth of, but this one was different. A lot goes on in this story, including vampirism, bug-eating, and there is the famous Dr. Van Helsing! It’s a very typical Victorian novel, with a lot of honour and protection directed towards women, and groups of men acting together and being manly. Although I really enjoyed the book and would read it again, I found the ending a little anticlimactic. Of course, I don’t want to spoil the ending for you :)
