Dracula by Bram Stoker (review by Evani R. ’17)

DraculaDracula by Bram Stoker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Stefanie Meyer’s Twilight series does not come close to Stoker’s classic vampire tale Dracula. Narrated through a collection of diary entries and letters, the book starts with the journey of Jonathan Harker, an English lawyer, on his way to Dracula’s remote castle. The vampire’s hospitable manner to Harker is suspicious, and the young man soon realizes that he is imprisoned in the castle. Harker himself begins to see Dracula’s supernatural powers and becomes even more frightened. The novel takes off from there involving three wanton female vampires known as “the Sisters,” Harker’s fiancée, Mina Murray, and her strangely ill friend, Lucy Westenra. The literature will take every reader on an adventure with twists and turns and will appeal especially to those who enjoy mystery and horror. – Evani R. ‘17
