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.

Even though I‘m #teamslaughter, I had my heart set on reading Dracula this October so I just listened to it this weekend during our epic road trip. Not terribly scary, but a more layered and developed story than I had anticipated! Really quite a good read and Simon Vance is always an amazing narrator. 5pts (I think) #scarathlon #bbrc #growup #freezerbook #readmyowndamnbooks

I know I‘m a traitor to #teamslaughter, but I‘ve planned to read Dracula during October for several months. I tried to read it when I was a kid (think it was a kids version), got scared, & have been scared of vampires, with some exceptions, since then. Since I listened to Frankenstein last Oct, which wasn‘t scary, thought I would try audio for Dracula this month. So far, it‘s ok. #scarathlon @Clwojick

A long time ago (1994?) I was in Scotland and we walked down a long muddy track to see Slains Castle. Slains Castle which sits on the edge of a cliff over the sea is reputedly Bram Stoker‘s inspiration for Dracula‘s Castle.

Here‘s a great video from YouTube if you want to experience it for yourself. Sadly, no cellphones when I went, only my 35mm camera https://youtu.be/VO6XUTO6bwo

I sort of know the story of Dracula (mostly the ending and, you know, the big revelation on the identity of the Count), but I don‘t know the details because Stoker was not an author I studied at school.
To be a lover of vampires, I lack the basis… Time to fix it!
Also, last year this month I was reading Frankenstein, I could really start a tradition of reading one “monstrous classic” per year.

Bram Stoker did an awesome job giving each character a unique and distinct voice. You can tell who is narrating just by tone and language. The book is creepy at parts, even by today‘s standards, but it didn‘t age well overall. It‘s not a bad read, but it‘s a very slow read. 3 out of 5 stars.
