I finished this yesterday (read is slowwwwwly because it was so good). Very interesting book, very well written, I learned a lot....sort of a literary "DaVinci Code" that is not nearly as gruesome. I got a little tired of the structure in the second half (ie the dad's flashbacks) but the story was so good it didn't bother me too much.
I am reading this now for my book club. It hasn't grabbed me as much as I thought it would. I get the feeling of deja vue as each chapter just seems to be more and more of the two characters going after Dracula. Nothing new seems to be happening, maybe as I get more into it. I am about halfway finished now though.
Eileen, did you finish? I just did over the weekend. It was pretty good although I figured out the ending ahead of time. Still, I'm glad I stuck with it, it was interesting to learn about eastern Europe, a part of the world I know very little about.
