Pablo Álvarez Rubio Opinion
We consider that this is an excellent and exciting work since it contains several mystery topics which make the reader travael from the fiction passages to real situations as there are many aspects of life that the science has not explained yet. Also, the way that the author "Bram Stoker" writes the novel is very simple, easy to understand, but at the same time full of mystery and very descriptive which allow people get interested to read more and more. For this reason, this novel has have a big success around the world specially in the field of cinema. Bibliography
