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.

Visited Bran Castle today. Though many see this as Dracula's castle, Vlad never lived here. The only connection Vlad had with this place was that he was imprisoned here for 2 weeks. However, it was still cool to visit. We lucked out that it was raining hard in the morning so the crowds were small.

slategreyskies I love that the crowds were small for you! What a cool place to visit! 🥰 1mo

Told in a series of diary entries, letters, newspaper articles, letters, and telegrams, we follow John and Mina Harker, Lucy Westenra, Dr. Seward, and Professor Van Helsing as they investigate strange happenings, Lucy‘s mysterious illness and eventual death, and folklore while trying to stop the dangerous newcomer, Count Dracula.

3✨ I read this with a pretty busy mind so I‘ll want to do a reread in the future. I enjoyed the writing and how it started out. There was a lot of narrative instead of dialogue which made it harder for me at this moment in my life to stay focused. I liked how it was written and would have likely enjoyed it more if I gave myself more time or was not as busy while I read it. #Scarathlon #BatBrigade @Catsandbooks (I audio and physically read)

I avoided this book (and all the movies) because I‘m not a fan of horror. MISTAKE!
This is an amazing book. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I now have a much better perspective of the all the more contemporary versions of these characters of Dracula, Renfield, and Van Helsing. Wish I had read this years ago.

This audible version with the multiple narrators is perfect for the epistolary style.

it is a strange world, a sad world, a world full of miseries, and woes, and troubles. And yet when King Laugh come, he make them all dance to the tune he play. Bleeding hearts, and dry bones of the churchyard, and tears that burn as they fall, all dance together to the music they he make with that smileless mouth of him.

Ah, yes, the #1 song of my senior year in high school (1983). We all thought it was romantic and didn't realize at the time it was also one of the best stalker songs ever written. #yeahwewerethatstupid
With that in mind, I chose DRACULA as a stalker of 🩸.

I was interested in reading the book because I wanted to see where our modern conceptions of vampires came from, & that aspect of the novel was definitely interesting. But, that was just about the only part of the book that I enjoyed. The pace was mind-numbingly slow, & the plot was relatively uneventful. Stoker could have gone in so many interesting directions, but instead he had endless pages of droning on about unimportant details.

Well Dracula is finally a wrap!! I spontaneously signed up for the #DraculaDaily emails back in May, but also bought a physical copy because I just don't like reading on screens very much. Plus, I obviously need as many Penguins Classics as possible!! At any rate, I did enjoy this one, but I think I did it a disservice by reading it across such a long period of time when I had never read it before. During times in the story where a chunk of time⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) passes and we would go a long time without a #DraculaDaily email, I would sort of lose the thread of the story. I think it would be fun to the daily emails again next year now that I've actually read the entire story and know where it's going. So a little bit of a soft pick for me because the story seemed to lose momentum sometimes, but that could also be because of the way I read it. 2y
wideeyedreader If you like podcasts and the Dracula daily format, there‘s one in the works called re:dracula that is a dramatization of the novel with the same “as the story happens” format! I‘m super excited for it 2y

Last year I read and loved Frankenstein for the first time so this year I settled into Dracula, and I loved it, too - the writing is gorgeous. I started this weeks ago and read a couple chapters at a time until the final stretch- a good approach for me. I was surprised that Dracula was the subject but not the main character of the story. But Lucy, Mina and the men who fought for her honor were great characters.

I‘ve started rereading this (for the umpteenth time), but this time I‘ve decided to listen to it. I want to compare it while I‘m reading the Swedish edition*, which is double the length so I can pick up the differences in real time. The Swedish edition is a chunkster, so I‘m hoping this will be enough of a head start to finish for #scarathlon. #teamslaughter #chunksterchallenge2022 @Clwojick @Amiable

I had started Dracula forever ago for an undergrad class, but chose to leave it unfinished as readings were piling up. This time, instead of reading my physical copy, I listened to the audiobook. And I finally finished it. It‘s a good story. Different from what you‘d expect from pop culture representations of Dracula (or even Van Helsing). The Audible-exclusive audiobook has multiple narrators, including Tim Curry!
