Dracula: what timing

Hey, look! Just in time for our July read, the New York Times publishes an article in their Fashion & Style section on why people’s interest in vampires remains, um… undead: “A Trend with Teeth”; plus, Jezebel.com has a commentary on gender and vampirism.

If you haven’t read Dracula yet, are you trying to keep your preconceived notions out of the way? Do you suspect that you’ll find something new or suprising in the book? Or do you figure that Dracula and vampires have been around in pop culture long enough that this is just going to be a book that’s reminiscent of things you’ve already seen, read, and heard?
