I was captivated by this new writer's book: a fictional work based on the life of the real Dracula. It reminded me of the great literature of the past a Victor Hugo type novel in which you become involved in characters you care about, you experience a great sense of time and place, and you get a valuable history lesson--all at the same time/5(10).

D racula isn't a book, not anymore. Dracula is a name, a broad stereotyping of a character which encompasses many different components and interpretations of.

Book Name: Dracula Author: Bram Stoker First Published: Bram Stoker was born on November 8, in Dublin, Ireland. He was a sickly boy but he fully recovered when he was seven. He had no other major health problems and even became an athlete at Trinity College, Dublin when he studied there from In Defense of Food shows us how, despite the daunting dietary landscape Americans confront in the modern supermarket, we can escape the Western diet and, by doing so, most of the chronic diseases that diet causes.

There are parts that are diaries as well. The style is without a doubt the most interesting thing of .Stoker actually got the name from a book about Transylvania he found in a library in Whitby (the town where Dracula first arrives in England)—a medieval Romanian named "Vlad III Dracula" was more commonly called "Vlad the Impaler" because of his habit of impaling with a pointy spear his political rivals, religious dissidents, and pretty much.
