I have been reading this book for what feels like forever! I started it with two weeks left in the pregnancy and finally just finished it the other day. The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova, jumps right on the vampire craze that seems to be going on right now. It tells the story of a group of people setting out to find Dracula’s final resting place. It was super long and honestly, I’m not sure that I enjoyed this book all that much. The climax was short and not at all what I was anticipating, not to mention the ending left a little to be desired. I almost felt like so much history and research was put into the beginning parts of the book that the climax and ending were cop outs. The writing style is nice and I did get sucked into the story. . . but only for it to end in disappointment. I’m a bit sad that I spent so much time reading this long book. Not highly recommended. 4/10
