Highly recommended reading.

Everybody thinks that they know the Dracula stories from numerous film adaptations. Reading the original work reveals a much more complex, multilayered storyline that is really well written and full of psychological insights.
The same applies to the "Lair of the White Worm". There is a very interesting 1988 film version based on this story by Ken Russell (with a very young Hugh Grant and a fascinating Amanda Donohoe), but Bram Stoker's original version is different and, in many aspects, much deeper.
I have not read the other stories of the book yet, but I am confident to predict that they will provide a lot of pleasure too.
