I read Dracula for the first time this week, and I LOVED it. I don't know why I never really thought about reading it before. I loved the 90s movie. The book is NOTHING like the movie, but it grabbed me from the very beginning and kept me on the edge of my seat I kept my electronic dictionary open so I could look up words I didn't really know even though I could've figured out the meaning from context clues. Nerdy, I know, but I love learning new words. The book was written in 1897 and it still resonates. Most interesting: It wasn't Holy Water Van Helsing used. It was Holy Wafer.
I'm going to suggest they add this book to the reading list. I think I learned as much from it as I did from Pride and Prejudice. Maybe even more.
