The Vampyre: A Tale – by John William Polidori – independent book review – Fiction

vampyreONLY for die-hard Dracula fans. Awarded three stars on Goodreads.

If you’re a Dracula fan, this is a worthwhile, quick and dirty read (38 pages) — offering background into the stories that shaped Bram Stoker’s later writings. While the writing is quite dated and convoluted (long sentences that can be hard to follow, with vocabulary from centuries ago) — suspense does build as the main character, Aubrey, slowly comes to recognize the horrible secret his companion is hiding.
