    Frankenstein was a huge disappoint for me….but
    Dracula (Bram Stoker) was a huge surprise! I loved this book.
    I reviewed one short story by E.A. Poe or this challenge…it took me 2 days!
    I read it word for word, looking for clues, symbols….etc.
    If one takes the time to really study Poe’s work instead of just be thrilled by his ‘spookiess’
    you find another man behind the name!

    1. I really liked Dracula, too. It wasn’t what I thought, having seen so many film versions. I hope to find something good in Frankenstein. Now Poe…I read some stories in school and I remember I just thought they were really weird! I don’t remember being scared. But it’s been so long, I thought I’d give him another try.
