Bram Stoker's Dracula

As a fan of vampires, I figured it was high time I dove in and read this classic. I was expecting heavy awkward Shakespearean type language...WRONG! I'm 40 pages in and excited to say it is a compelling read and the words just flow! And we are talking classic gothic mood here....full moon legends, creepy castle on the cliff, a terrifying late night carriage ride, howling wolves...oh how I love it!

Things that have surprised me so far...

Dracula had a moustache!
Dracula had hairy palms!

I am now of course dying to watch Dracula movies and compare them to the book. Course I'll wait until I'm done :)

Have you read this classic?
What's your favorite Dracula movie?
