Reviews

Wasted potential...

(2.5 stars)

The story has some potential but it is wasted because Stoker gave his plot a rather slow pace and dwells in stereotypical descriptions of the English countryside, Africans etc.

Not bad

(3 stars)

I just felt the story itself was somewhat of a disappointment.
