Dracula’s Guest

Review Date: June 25, 2022

If you haven’t read Dracula yet, you can either skip this until after or treat it as a cut intro (which it is). I found the prose confusing at times, the writing is very archaic and I wasn’t quite sure what was being conveyed. While the story is nothing special, it is an interesting read that I think any fan or reader of Dracula should read at least once.

The Squaw

Review Date: June 19, 2022

Fuck this story. I didn’t read the summary, as I never do. As a cat lover, I hate it. I don’t know if this is *every* version of this story, but for me, the punctuation was poor. It was a series of endless sentences that really should have been broken up. The entire first page is 2 sentences long. Most sentences in this book are an entire paragraph because the author felt the need to just use a dozen commas. There were a lot of old-fashioned, out-of-use words that I struggled to interpret their meaning as well. Overall, I say give the Squaw a HARD PASS.
