Monday Review: Dracula-Bram Stoker

I finally get to do a review on my favorite book! It only took me this long as my original copy’s cover was badly destroyed, so I wound up getting a new copy!

I love to read/watch things about vampires (Twilight was not the best, sorry). So to read the original story of how it all began, was amazing!

The story begins with Jonathan Harker, a solicitor who is staying with Count Dracula, the noble in Transylvania, before going to London to buy land for the Count.

Harker does some digging around the castle and finds out Dracula is a vampire! He is trapped as the Count’s prisoner as Dracula takes a boat to London, which eventually crashes!

Mina Murray, Harkers’ fiancée, and her friend Lucy Westenra spend some time together, until Lucy falls ill, with red marks at her throat. Mina, Dr. Seward, and Lucy’s fiancée Arthur try to figure out the cause of her illness. When no cause can be found, Dr. Seward calls upon his colleague, Professor Van Helsing.

Mina is called to Harker’s side, having been found with brain fever, and come back having been wed!

Mina, Jonathan, Van Helsing, and few others go on the search for Dracula and to dispose of him!

Will they be successful?

Did Lucy survive her illness?
