This is a fine read, giving insight into Dracula's emotions and motivations in a way that Bram Stoker himself never had. It's not the novel by Bram Stoker but it is still an enjoyable read. I also strongly recommend seeking out the other Dracula books by Fred Saberhagen.
The Dracula Tape
The Dracula Holmes File
An Old Friend of the Family
A matter of Taste
A question of Time
Seance for a vampire
Sharpness on the Neck
A coldness in the blood
And his Dracula short stories From The Tree of Time (which can be found in the book Gaslight arcanum) and Box Number 50 (Found in the book Dracula in London).
The thing that I like about Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula is that there is a reason why Dracula became a vampire. Granted, the love story between a vampire and human is odd but it's also touching.
As for Saberhagen's novelization, the writing is less than stellar. It's simplistic and veers away from the movie only slightly (some scenes have minor changes, a few were added). This is not a deep, thought-provoking book; it's no where near as well-written as the Bram Stoker version.
Overall, I enjoyed the book and don't consider it a waste of time/money. If you like Dracula, particularly Bram Stoker and Francis Ford Coppola's versions, then you may find this an entertaining read. If, however, you dislike the notion of the vampire with human traits/qualities, then don't bother.
