Here are some thoughts on this book.
1. I would have been all OVER this in 1897.
2. I would like Van Helsing to be quiet.
3. I can suspend disbelief for the vampires but not for the blood transfusions
4. I know it was 1897 and blood types weren’t discovered until 1901 (according to my very in depth research) (wikipedia) but I still cannot get past it
5. The Texan would go outside and just randomly shoot things for fun, including things sitting on windowsills of windows in rooms where live people are
EDIT, JULY 2, 2017: Hello there! Thank you for reading my review of the book, DRACULA (Paperback) by Bram Stoker, which I posted on this website, good reads dot com, two years ago when I read this book and still remembered things about it. It is now 2017, and all I remember at this point in my life is that in this book there is a guy named Van Helsing who talks very much, and sometimes there’s a vampire named Dracula who has bad breath. I can only assume that is why everybody hated him so much.
If you feel the urge to leave me any type of comment about what I said two years ago about the blood transfusions, please take a quick moment to check if your “well, actually” mansplaination re: this series of jokes has already been posted by someone else. I have received many of these already, and I would not want you to waste your valuable time repeating someone else’s very helpful and insightful comment!
If your comment is something like, “you are stupid for thinking wikipedia is reliable,” I greatly appreciate you informing me of this. I definitely included that thing about wikipedia as a sarcastic joke about how little research I did on this topic, but it is still nice to be reminded that the people who read my good reads dot com reviews are so very, very smart, so much smarter than me, and so extremely helpful, and definitely understand my sense of humor.
In conclusion, thank you for reading my review of the book Dracula on good reads dot com!
Managed to finish this 🙂 Second time studying, but first successful read-through.
I enjoyed it more this time around, mainly because I actually read the last quarter or so of the book, which was the most enjoyable in my opinion.
it was amazing
Dracula: the very name instantly brings to mind visions of vampires, stakes, garlic and crucifixes. But when one bothers to read the novel they may realise how twisted modern vampire fiction has become.
Vampires are not meant to exist as heroes. Go back a few hundred years and men believed truly that the vampire was a real immortal, cursed to quench his undying thirst with a living mortal’s blood. The very idea of a blood drinker inspires the very image of a villain to the mind. And that is what
