I'm approaching the end of The Historian and have discovered that Dracula is not only alive and well (and undead), but is an avid book collector, a scholar and a historian; in addition to his duties as a bloodsucker and being the prince of darkness.
This begs the question: if you had the chance, would you want to live forever? After giving it much thought, like 10 minutes, I would! Imagine having the luxury of time to read the books you wanted to read, to listen to the music you wanted to listen to, to watch the movies and television shows you wanted to watch, and travel to places you wanted to visit.
Of course, living forever means, at times, there is no escape from boredom. Small price to pay, I guess.
