I don’t know, what I should expect from the book. Because I know how the story will end.
The plot became more colorful because Dracula became active, also we have another new character — Van Helsing. He was the first, who became suspected of unpure power in the strange changes in behave of Lucy.
As I said, I know how the story ends, so I know the story of each character in the book.
My favorite character is Dr. Van Helsing, because when he knew that his ex. student heeds help, he immediately went to his aid and when he failed, he did not despair and continued his work, even when his thought was most absurd, he still tried to help.
