Dracula | Bram Stoker
Pickpick

First time reading this since college, maybe. I used to consider it my favorite book. The suspense, while at times a little clunky for a modern reader, is genuine and pretty expertly maintained throughout. Lots of quality dramatic irony based on the epistolarian form.

No longer what I would call "the best" but still a solid 5-stars, I'd say.

"Some of the "New Women" writers will some day start an idea that men and women should be allowed to see each other asleep before proposing or accepting. But I suppose the New Woman won't condescend in future to accept; she will do the proposing herself. And a nice job she will make of it, too!" (Fire courtesy of YouTube tv. )

Qué historia mas interesante y cómo te atrapa de principio a fin! Es súper fácil de leer y si tienes tiempo quizás la leas en un fin de semana! Admito que de no haber visto la película ningún pasaje me hubiera dado miedo, pero es que está tan bien narrada y es tan especifica que por lapsos recuerdas si o si a la peli. Un clásico que no debes dejar pasar, tanto si te gusta o no el terror.

🎧 📚 Written in 1897 by Irish author Bram Stoker. I‘m sure you know the story but can you imagine vampire lore without it? I LOVE THIS AUDIO-DRAMA!

This book introduced us to Count Dracula. So many ideas will show up in a plethora of books/movies to come.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👇🏻

Twainy This was my first read through of this classic! The count is looking for a new location/new blood so he moves from Transylvania to England. Add Van Hellsing & Renfield for added tension.

This book scratches several itches. Gothic, thriller, action/adventure, romance, horror!

Better than the movie. Great classic!

DrexEdit Looks like an all star cast! I might see if my library has this one... 5mo
Twainy @DrexEdit I read the book last month then I swear Audible is listening to me because suddenly this ^ audiobook was suggested to me. I bought it instantly and listened to it! Definitely a fun dramatization! I found myself listening for those voices!! Poirot & Loki reading Dracula to me? YES! 🖤 5mo

I enjoyed this audiobook except for the narrator who does Mina — her voice is very shrill and hurts my ears. My husband was so funny listening to this; he kept saying, “Why would you do that? It‘s so stupid!” He‘d read the book, but the audio really brought their actions to life. Listened to Mary Jane on my walk. #audiowalk #audiodrive

BBooks Annoying when the narrator is awful, there is one narrator i now avoid due to her whiney shill voice. Thankfully your bad narrator wasn't reading the whole book! 🧛🏻‍♂️ 6mo
KathyWheeler @BBooks I‘m thankful for that too! The rest of them were fine. (edited) 6mo

Avoided cleaning the porch today by going to Bellingrath Gardens instead. We have an hour left of Dracula. #audiodriving. I didn‘t listen to my book on my walk around the gardens because the scenery was so beautiful. Those bottom two walks are really one walk. I accidentally hit Save Workout, so I had to start a new walk on my app.

batsy I'm enjoying it a lot but every time I see how much I've progressed it's not very much 😆 It's a slow read for me & the tiny print in my edition fooled me into thinking it's not that long! Lol 2y

Cinfhen Yup!!! Hard to imagine @ValerieAndBooks although my youngest will probably take a Gap Year and do a combination of traveling and volunteering 2y

Oh man. If you're near Seattle, take the chance to go see Dracula at ACT Theater, it was a great experience. The stage and costume design were super effective and minimalist true to ACT's SOP, a diverse cast, and this adaptation (by Steven Dietz) pared down the cast to a core of ~seven, which excluded van Helsing (always a win), plus Mina got to really shine. Great overall. Ninety minutes, no intermission.

ElizaMarie @kamoorephoto it was! So creepy and eerily written. I was getting chills ! 2y
kamoorephoto @ElizaMarie Have you seen the 60‘s version of Nosferatu? It has a little bit of a cheesy 60‘s vibe (which I kind of dig though), but it gives me the biggest chills and I can really envision the Dracula that Stoker wrote and see the story in that movie. Really eerie. 2y
ElizaMarie @kamoorephoto it‘s been a long time since I‘ve seen it. I‘ll have to rewatch it soon :) 2y

Question...
With everything going on this October, I personally feel like it would be better if we just had our discussions at the end of the month for this book instead of breaking it down and having discussions throughout the month.
Or would you guys rather have me break it down? I can do either or. I leave it up to all of you.
Please comment below ⬇️
