Haven't gotten far enough to verify exactly what he's like, but, so far, he's like an ordinary scholar/doctor with bad English skills (I assume it's a direct contrast to Dracula's good English skills and perfectionism with such endeavors).

I agree with nairbons. Dracula is a scary guy.

So BBC is adapting one of my favorite novels "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" into a mini-series directed by Toby Haynes, of "Sherlock," "Doctor Who," and "Wallander" fame. "Strange" is a very inventive novel having a refreshing depiction of magic and whole fictional bibliography of scholarly magic essays. I would recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it yet, and even anyone who has.

Never heard of it, but it sounds very interesting. I'll read it before i watch it. And if it's the same director then it's bound to be win.

Not read much of Hemingway's. In fact, I've never read anything of Hemingway, but I've seen the impressive oil paint animation adaption of The Old Man and the Sea.

Voice acting is pretty bad. The script isn't much better. The visuals, however...

I'll watch it as soon as i can

Reading Vampire Hunter D, it seems Hideyuki Kikuchi was really enthralled and captured by the original dracula character. He says he ran out of the theatre when he watched it as a boy. He keeps on touting it as one of the greatest horrors, so i definately want to read ths one

I'm getting to the climax and it's proving to be horrifyingly amazing.

As a paperback, it's about an inch thick.

I've Jules Verne' Journey to the center of the earth tucked away somewhere, but I haven't been reading much lately. Started on Michael Grant's 'Gone' series some time ago, loved it. I suppose it's relatively new to the classics you named, but a brilliant book none the less.

I saw that at a thrift store and thought about buying it. I didn't know much about it then, and the title is a bit bland, but I'm curious to read it now.

Yeah, I think it's classified as a kid's book(Which is like calling Rugby a tickle fight). It's got a very original plot, and the characters are very well thought out.

Finally truly broken into 'the reading zone' too. I've gone through 4 Volumes of Vampire Hunter D, and I've started a novel, 1Q84 by the legendary sci fi author (apparently, never heard of him until now), Haruki Murakami (badass name, no?)

Also finished The Snows of Kilomanjaro and A Well Lighted Place by Ernest Hemingway. I'm starting to really return to the love of writing and it's great!
