…to read Dracula at night before bed. But at the same time, it’s deliciously creepy, and that’s the whole point of the R.I.P. II Challenge, no? I’m really enjoying the book so far, and I’m intrigued by the form(s) that Stoker is using to tell the tale (i.e. journal entries and notes supposedly transcribed from shorthand…). I can’t help but be drawn into the story on a deeper level (and the academic in me loves it when people play with the form of the novel). Quite a good read so far, and I even managed to fall asleep afterward (although, truth be told, I’m not that far along so hopefully I’ll be able to hold the nightmares at bay).
Perhaps not the brightest idea…
