    Dracula

    Count Dracula. The name makes me think of bloodthirsty vampires, religious superstitions dealing with garlic and silver crucifixes, and the puppet that announces the number of the day on Sesame Street. Well the name actually means "the devil" in Romanian, and the majority of the book has little talk of vampires, although there is a considerable amount.
    In the first half of the book no one even knows what Dracula is. They just know he's the weird guy in town who lives on top of his hill in his Transylvanian castle. This was what really frustrated me, because obviously I know that Dracula is a vampire. In the beginning of the book I was mainly just waiting for them to figure out his secret. There was only one very exciting part, and that was when Dracula attacked the first of the victims. The book is also made up of the victims' diary entries, which does make it more interesting with the different perspectives and all. There were also small side events that added to the story, but I didn't understand their point until towards the end of the book.
    So after everyone finally puts together their clues and experiences, the smartest and oldest character in the book, Professor Van Helsing, suggests that Dracula could possibly be a mythical creature, which is the vampire. There is the expected disbelief and uncertainties of the main characters, but eventually they believe Van Helsing. This is really when the story starts to improve. Finally the characters are hunting down this "monstrous creature of the devil".
    By the time I finished reading Dracula--which was several months after I started it--I really loved the story. The beginning wasn't so good but was needed to tie things together. I loved the writing, because the diary entries allowed me to connect to each character. I also liked the language, which was pretty old-fashioned English with it being written in the late 1800s.
    Dracula is another one of those books where the plot isn't really what makes it special, but it's the very small details that are put into every sentence that matter. Sometimes these little details are what make the story more dense, and a slower read, but really this book just couldn't do without them. Dracula really is an excellent, commendable book for anyone willing to be patient.

    Great Reminder of the Origins of the Myths surrounding Vampires

    I had never picked this up before now. I am a huge fan of vampire related television series. A friend and I agreed to read this together and chat along the way.

    It was hard to get into the style at first, it is a journal-based format, but I easily fell into the flow once I was used to it. The story was mostly riveting with some entries worth skipping.

    I would love to see this made into a movie with today's special effects, but kept in the same time period. Very scary.

    Good characters and plot...but too much fluff

    As the title of this book is Dracula, I thought it would be about Dracula and vampires, but it was mainly focused on people that are affected by Dracula. Although, after the unexpected characters, the plot was riveting and kept me reading as they hunted on for this unknown killer. The characters were very detailed, like real people, which was surprising in a fictional book. I liked, most of all, that I felt like I KNEW these people; I knew their lives before the book and could follow their lives throughout the book. I disliked that Dracula was only a mysterious killer in the novel and that all that we knew about him was what the characters found out during the book, little by little the charcters in the book found out little clues to help them discover this awkward murderer. You should read this book if you know nothing about Dracula, you know a very detailed representation of Europe, and you know your French!
