The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

I read this 642 page book in four days! If you like historical fiction (or is it fiction? :-)) and a story just creepy enough to make you think, but not too scary to keep you from sleeping, this book is for you. I feel like I've toured Istanbul, the south of France, then Romania and Bulgaria. The book takes you into the great libraries of Universities like Oxford, and the furthest, most remote historical monasteries. This is absolutely beautifully written, and I've never been so intrigued by the history of Dracula.
