This novel has that wonderful gothic feel you expected from Bram Stoker. (The Lair of the White Worm was his last book.) HOWEVER....There is a single black character in this story, and he's developed with ever Jim Crow era stereotype imaginable. There is also the constant use of a particularly offensive racial slang word. All this made the book uncomfortable to read.

I claimed this softcover at this afternoon's BookCrossing Meetup at the Porter Square Panera in Cambridge MA. I recall the rather cheesy 1988 film that was loosely based on the book, and thought it'd be fun to read the original.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the film, with some entertaining tidbits.]
