I first read this book some 30 years ago when I was in high school. But I hardly remembered the plot of the novel. Happened to read it once again a couple of weeks back.
It is a gripping story of 6 brave people banding together to fight and kill Dracula a blood sucking vampire. The spine-chilling exploits of Dracula are vividly described and so are the details of all the planning and preparation that went towards killing it. However I felt that after all this the narration is rather weak at the point in the novel where Dracula is actually killed. Dracula meets a tame death . But I believe that is the only way it could have been killed - in day time when it is most vulnerable and is resting inside a coffin. But on the whole it is a book worth reading at least once, if you like horror fiction.
