(I don’t own this version, but boy, I wish I did.)
Well, I don’t think there’s much need for me to go into much detail here on what this is about. Everyone knows of Dracula, but I was actually pretty shocked at how attractive the character was, and how I was kind of annoyed that we didn’t get his point of view. He’s a complex character and I feel if we were to be given his point of view we would empathize with him more.
I mean, I didn’t expect this. I also didn’t expect how attractive Mina was either. I mean, I was kind of hoping for her and Van Helsing to get together. Or even her and Dracula.
I just hated dull, boring Jonathan Harker. You can’t have everything.
I also loved the style of this book – the collection of diary entries, ship logs, articles. It was fantastically put together and I had previously never read anything quite like it.
I know this was short but I don’t think there’s much to say about Dracula, except that it does deserve its status as a classic. The characters are phenomenal and it was actually better than I expected.
I might watch the movie now. I know, it’s kind of appalling that I haven’t.
Also, the three ladies freaked me out. Like, more so than Dracula.
