Welcome to 2023! On Mondays this year, let’s discuss and have fun with books. No I’m not writing book reviews. But this website is for writers, and writers like books right? So let’s have FUN with books!
Week #31 – Dracula by Bram Stoker, 1897
Dracula is an epistolary novel, told through letters, diary entries, and newspaper articles. Solicitor Jonathan Harker takes a business trip and stays at the castle of a Transylvanian nobleman, Count Dracula, who is a vampire.
Count Dracula is believed to be based on Romanian governor Vlad the Impaler.
The book has been adapted into several movies. The most famous is from 1931 and stars Bela Lugosihttps://www.imdb.com/title/tt0021814/
