As it is Blogtober Day 6 and I am technically a book blog I thought it was only right to do a review on a book which I think definitely fits the October vibe and is slightly Halloweeny!! So I thought today I would review one of my all-time favourite books and review Dracula.
All photo credits go to my favourite Halloween loving person ever!!! If you love reading about travel you will love her blog!
Dracula was first published in 1897 and from then on has become a classic which I think everyone should have in their book collection that being said I have a small obsession with Vampires!! Which anyone who knows me will find slightly amusing. Dracula the novel was bought for me by dad in the penguin cloth classic collection but I have read this book so many times beforehand I just had to have it in a matching collection.
When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula with the purchase of a London house, he makes horrifying discoveries about his client and his castle. Soon afterwards, a number of disturbing incidents unfold in England: an unmanned ship is wrecked at Whitby; strange puncture marks appear on a young woman’s neck, and the inmate of a lunatic asylum raves about the imminent arrival of his ‘Master’. In the ensuing battle of wits between the sinister Count Dracula and a determined group of adversaries, Bram Stoker created a masterpiece of the horror genre, probing deeply into questions of human identity and sanity, and illuminating dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire.
Dracula is a gothic novel written by Bram Stoker which in its own right would appeal to all book lovers but as someone who loves classic novels I can not help but rant and rave about this book.
Dracula is a well written yet creepy horror about one of the most famous Vampires in the world. It is a classic and twisted gothic novel you will never want to put down. Dracula tells the story of a monster that we meet in Transylvania through Jonathan Harker’s perspective. The Count plans on buying a house in London and Jonathan travels to see the client at his home. The book has many different journal entries from different characters in the book that each tell their own story.
Dracula is a novel that took me a while to read but I can not give it some love as one of my favourite gothic novels.
I would highly recommend this to all gothic horror/ classics lovers.
Have you read Dracula?
