Fans Now the evil Count Dracula comes alive in an electrifying graphic novel that follows the vampire from his looming and ominous castle in Transylvania to Victorian London Michael Mucci translates the tale and Ben Caldwell has cre Shockingly not a whole hell of a lot of vampire stuff up in this bitchMostly it read like a dull travelogue with lots of emotions bro love everywhere All the men loved all the women platonically or otherwise to the point they were willing to give their lives for whichever lucky lady was getting snacked on by Dracula at the timeIt was uite the love fest I'm not buying it StokerAnd Dracula?Not since Gary Olman's beehived old woman portrayal have I been less scared of this character Welcome to my home Allow me to get you some Entenmann's coffee cake whilst you peruse my garage sale knick knack collection and trip over my catsSo I've come to realize that very few of the classic characters or stories even remotely resemble what you think they will based on their modern counterparts And in my uneducated opinion most classics just aren't all that much fun to read They're boring and filled up with tedious shit that I don't care about and certainly don't want to read about Scenery weather random feelings about the scenery or weather etcI guess back in the day it was high fun to take walks look at the landscape and then go back home and write about it in your diary And while I'm sure that sounds like heaven to some people who yearn for simpler times the idea of reading about the nonsense of someone else's daily life makes me want to scratch my eyes out Something I was surprised by although in retrospect I shouldn't have been was all the religious undertones in the story Ok yes I knew Dracula was evil and couldn't be near crosses and whatnot but I didn't think about this being a casually religious story about saving souls from damnation Which I mean it's not like it was any fault of the vampires that they were dammed At one time or another they had all been humans who were targeted by another vampire as a snack Vicious cycle and all thatAnd poor Lucy seemingly ended up a chew toy simply because she was a sleepwalkerPerhaps the moral of the story is that you need to make sure you aren't wandering around on moors at night so you don't get spotted by anemic monsters? Speaking of Lucy did anyone else notice how incredibly fucking lucky she was that every single guy in their group was a compatible blood type for her? All those blood transfusions None of them even remotely hygienic or safe Forget supernatural demons who turn into bats those transfusions were the scariest shit in this entire bookOk There were a lot of characters and POV switches Again most of what they were saying wasn't all that interesting so it made me doubly happy that I decided to go with the audiobook version of Stoker's tale If I'm being 100% honest here I probably zoned out a few times and daydreamed about when I needed to get the oil changed in my car or what we were having for dinner But this is one of those books with a lot of superfluous information so I don't think it hurt anything I got the gist of it all ok without hanging on every word Be warned the first half of this book is unbelievably dull Mina writes in her diary about how she fretts over Jonathan's lack of letters from Transylvania how hard it is to keep Lucy from wandering out the door at night Lucy gets mysteriously ill her fiancee gets worried and the doctor dude John Seward moons over Lucy watches one of his psychotic patients eat bugs Renfield being the only character in the book that doesn't want to talk about friendship loyalty every five minutes was by far my favorite give him a kitten already DocThe second half of the book was only slightly engaging to me but at least there was a bit of urgency to it at that point Van Helsing was onto Dracula so garlic was being thrown over everything stakes were being handed out like candy and anything pertinent was being kept from Mina so as not to upset her delicate sensibilities And then when that backfired spectacularly they cut her into the loop and she was able to do an old timey version of what a competent woman looked like They even compared her brains to that of a man I love these old books ReallyAnd what about Dracula?Well he was sort of this shadow figure that lurked around the edges of the book You never really meet him I know right? What about the whole Vlad the Impaler thing? How he fixated on Johathan Mina for some reason? Buzzz NopeOk get this Dracula had been sort of like a special needs zombie who was finally learning stuff like mathand how to employ minions to carry his dirt around for him Apparently up to this point he had just been harassing his neighbors and nibbling on Romanian women This whole thing with Lucy Mina was supposed to be his bid at going global Thank god for Van Helsing and his wacky foreign man knowledge of urban legendsI guess one of the oddest things that I realized about this horror story was that when Lucy Mina started turning toward the dark side they got sexy Yeah Like that was how you could tell they were creatures of the dammed The men got all freaked out and weepy because their sweet mild mannered gals lost their wholesome looks and became wanton hussies with throaty voices and pouty lips Holy shit If that doesn't say something about how wackadoo things used to be I don't know what will Innocence or elseAnyway This wasn't really a fun read but I'm glad I can finally say I've managed to put it behind me Plus it's one of those weird little windows into the past that reminds you things aren't as bad as they could be I'd definitely recommend listening to the audio version with Tim Curry Alan Cumming if you decide to go that route The entire voice cast of this one really helped make it palatable for someone like myself who doesn't have the fortitude to read classics on their own

Dracula Author Bram StokAted action packed images with meticulous attention paid to the finer details in each piece of art from facial expressions to the historical accuracy of costuming architecture and heraldry Young readers will be completely transfixed Dracula is of course one of the most renowned horror stories and the most well known vampire novel Bram Stoker set the ground rules for what a vampire should be and set the benchmark for all other writers of the vampire afterwards Indeed if tyrannical villains are a necessity of Gothic fiction then Count Dracula is the father of all gothic villains in spite of it being one of the last Gothic fiction novels to be written It’s a work of genius that his presence is felt so strongly in the novel with him appearing in the flesh so rarely His face was a strong a very strong auiline with high bridge of the thin nose and peculiarly arched nostrils with lofty domed forehead and hair growing scantily round the temples but profusely elsewhere His eyebrows were very massive almost meeting over the nose and with bushy hair that seemed to curl in its own profusion The mouth so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache was fixed and rather cruel looking with peculiarly sharp white teeth These protruded over the lips whose remarkable ruddiness showed astonishing vitality in a man of his years For the rest his ears were pale and at the tops extremely pointed The chin was broad and strong and the cheeks firm though thin The general effect was one of extraordinary pallor The atmosphere of the novel is unmistakably gothic It is impossible to talk about Dracula without mentioning the Gothic; the two are one and the same The decaying castle in which the book begins is testimony to the eeriness that follows The damsel in distress motif appears uite often in Gothic literature and none so much as Dracula Mina and Lucy are both damsels at some point and even Harker himself can be seen as one at the start when he is rescued by his wife that has a “man’s brain” It’s uite a subversion of the standard gender roles at this point and uite funny really On initial inspection the plot of the book can be summed up in a few short sentences Dracula wishes to create vampires in Victorian London; his attempts are thwarted and he and his kind are exterminated But the novel is so much than that It represents Victorian fears and fancies; it is a comment on women’s position in society and underpins their sexual desires and perhaps fears It suggests a struggle between modernity and science with religion and superstition It harbours the effect of Darwinian thought on man as Dracula himself represent the idea of “survival of the fittest” The undertones of sexuality and disease that occur so freuently symbolise the time in which it was written Each one of these has been a topic for commentaries on Dracula and academic essays Indeed the extrinsic value of this novel is incredibly high Bram Stoker also explores the theme of sanity with many of his characters not just Renfield At some point every character wonders whether their dealings with the Count are born from some mental deficiency rather than a paranormal encountering with the villain This clashes the Victorian realism view with the paranormal events that occur in the novel There are also issues of identity and how this is affected by transgression It can further be seen as an allegory for religious redemption and a comment on colonisation I think I’ve said enough; if I say anything else I will break my “500 words a review” rule As you can probably tell I’m uite passionate about this book it is brilliant; at this point I can honestly say that Dracula is one of my favourite novels of all time I just love it I might even write my dissertation on it and Gothic Literature Dracula rules
