Dracula
Dracula | Bram Stoker
Abraham "Bram" Stoker (November 8, 1847 ? April 20, 1912) was an Irish writer, best remembered as the author of the influential horror novel Dracula. In his honor, the Horror Writers Association recognizes "superior achievement" in horror writing with the Bram Stoker Award.He supplemented his income by writing a large number of novels, his most famous being the vampire tale Dracula which he published in 1897. Before writing Dracula, Stoker spent eight years researching European folklore and stories of vampires. Dracula is an epistolary novel, written as collection of diary entries, telegrams, and letters from the characters, as well as fictional clippings from the Whitby and London newspapers. Stoker's inspiration for the story was a visit to Slains Castle near Aberdeen. The bleak spot provided an excellent backdrop for his creation.

🎧 The “all-star audible edition of ‘Dracula‘ featured amazing performances by Steven Crossley, Alan Cumming, Tim Curry, Susan Duerden, John Lee, Graeme Malcolm and, Simon Vance.

I‘m deliberately leaving one narrator off that list. Their performance was so over-the-top and poorly delivered that it rendered some scenes incomprehensible (e.g. What happened at Whitby?!?), ridiculous, and harsh on the ears.

Still, 4/5 stars 🙂

Despite some pacing issues (the book could have definitely benefitted from heavy editing), DRACULA is more chilling, suspenseful, and gripping than I ever imagined it would be. Here we have vampires as they‘re meant to be: lurking in the shadows, never taking center stage, leaving you gripped with anxiety about where they might be and what shadows they‘re lurking in, waiting to pounce.. 4/5

I love classics. Just putting that out there, so this was right up my alley. This book took me there and back. Those parts that were meant to be frightening certainly were and the author did a great job of keeping me hooked.
I would have loved to know more about Dracula and I felt it ended before I knew enough about him. It was a great read though and ticked all the right boxes. Humour, terror, great storytelling. Tick,tick,tick.

Just wondering if we have any speed readers out there? How long does it take you to get through a novel?

tournevis I'm fast, but I never calculated formally. I am faster in French than in English, even as I read more in English than in French because job. 3mo
JNSibanda @tournevis I suppose most people wouldn't know. I always wanted to learn French. Hasn't happened yet but I'm still holding out hope. How long does it take you to get through a novel? 3mo
tournevis @JNSibanda If in French, 200 pages would be at most 5 hours straight. In English, 7 to 8 hours. 3mo

3/5

Personally I found the first 1/2 quite tedious. The writing is quite long-winded and a lot of it does not contribute to the plot, so I feel I would've enjoyed it more if it was a more concise book. However there are some stunning passages; e.g Ch 14 when Van Helsing starts to reveal some of the truth to Seward.

Overall, I think studying this will allow me to appreciate it more. I tend to be like that with classics!

JNSibanda I've tried electronic, even tried audio books at one point, my first love is physical copies. I understand the need for convenience but I just love the smell of the pages, the feel of the book in your hand, even the way the pages mash together because of the food stains when you've been binging on a good book.. It's an unrivalled experience. 4mo

Loved everything about this book. Dracula isn't featured as much as the name of the book would suggest, but the story progressed nicely and i was curious as to what will happen next.

I‘m glad I finally got around to reading this but I would not want to read it again. It was so wordy with many parts that had me questioning what they had to do with the story. I enjoyed the parts by Mina and often dreaded Van Helsing‘s contributions.
I was expecting the book to follow Dracula more than it actually did.

I listened and read along in the paperback copy on the right, my fancy pants copy on the left. I loved this, the audio performance was wonderful, I loved the epistolary style of it and even though the story is well known, I was still riveted by all the parts I didn‘t know. First classic of the year.
