Yes. Certain parts are a little more coherent when read out loud.
Dracula, naturally. Because he's the glue that holds this series together.
Dracula.and Joe. I love the dynamic between the two characters and how it is portrayed in the book series.
There were some funny parts.
I read this book out of order, but I don't think that matters much for this story. I love Robin Bloodworth's portrayal, but the story itself is much darker and lacks cohesion. There really isn't much Dracula in this story as he takes a secondary seat to other characters and crops up infrequently, and at the end.
As the plot unfolds, we find several different events converging together to create the main plot, but many times they lack important connecting elements to help the reader understand what's going on.
I'm still trying to decide if Saberhagen did this on purpose because he wanted the readers to fill in the blanks with their own ideas, or if the good stuff ended up being edited out or he was just out of inspiration. I guess we will never know!
