I have to say when it come's to classic horror's I'm a bit out of my depth. I sometimes get all lost on them. I did say that about Lovecraft but I’ve absolutely Come to love that man of classic horror. Now Bram Stoker is up there with him! The Jewel of the seven stars. Is an epigrammatic of a tale! It's a classic for sure. It has all the settings and atmosphere. The thing I noticed about this tale, was that Bram can do wonderful female char's. There are two endings to this book, I think I got the pick of the draw with this and got the soften version that left me with a disappointed feeling. I'd love to get a copy of the other version.
