Good for her! :thumbsup: Reading is fundamental, as they used to say. Lot of people are put off reading Dracula b/c they imagine it's like reading Frankenstein, which can be a chore. But it is not anything like reading Shelley. I find Stoker draws you in really well, and there are some good spooky parts she'll probably like (or not)...the baby in the bag, when they track down Lucy, etc.My daughter is 10 and has read all the books and seen all the movies. The net effect of her interest in Twilight is that it's peaked a broader interest in vampires. We've recently watched Nosferatu (1922), Salem's Lot (1979) and Dracula (1979) together and she wants to see more. She's even expressed an interest in reading Bram Stoker's novel - which is something I've never done. I'm happy that her interest has been stoked.
Bruce, may I recommend you try to grab Bernie Wrightson's Frankenstein? 'Tis Mary Shelley illustrated with Bernie's inimitable pen-and-ink drawings...helps to add a little extra POP to the narrative.I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like to read the Frankenstein novel. I started it back when I was a teenager and never could stand to finish it.
