Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I found Dracula interesting from a narrative/structural standpoint, because it's so self-referential. The process of creating the epistolary narrative is itself a central plot point in that narrative, because it's by assembling the evidence in that form that the characters are able to deduce what's going on and devise a plan for dealing with it. It's kind of the Victorian equivalent of a found-footage movie.
