A quick enjoyable read, with new tidbits even for an avid reader of all things Dracula and vampire. Sutherland approaces the subject from multible new angles, but stays on the surface. It would be interesting to dwell deeper, but it's just not that kind of book, more meant as light entertainment, and perhaps to loosen some ingrown perspectives of the subject.

I got this from the library but I should purchase it as I can't imagine not reaching for it several times a month to look up books and maps. This book aptly captures the sense of place in all these celebrated books. Books like this are difficult to rate but all readers will enjoy this collection.
