[PDF] Dracul (English Edition) Con J D Barker – Collateralloan.co

A pre quel to Dracula, this is an excellent companion piece Written via journal entries, letters, and traditional book narrative, the story moves forward from different perspectives It s not until you get about 2 3 rs through do you start to see where it is going so, in other words, keeps one guessing for quite awhile, which sucks the reader in IMO, not a lot of great vampire books out there sorry, Anne Rice , but Dracula has always been a stand out, and Dracul is a fine chapter in that series Highly, highly recommend this book if at all interested in Dracula and vampires.

I was so excited to read a prequel to Dracula and written by his great grandnephew no less Unfortunately, the writing doesn t hold a candle to the original Perhaps that s asking too much, but I found the writing so poor it was distracting I m sorry to say the book was a chore for me to finish I did like the ending, so that is something, but I cannot recommend this to anyone except they have the right expectations going in. The original novel by Bram Stoker is one of my favorite stories of all time And to be honest, I enjoyed Dracul almost than Dracula The mood is dark, the writing is tight and the imagery is vivid Dacre Stoker honors his Great Uncle with an excellent story that would make him proud.Dracul could have been a cheap cash in on the Dracula name and legacy, but it feels original, almost as if it were indeed written before Dracula was I can see how some readers may find it a little overly long, but I enjoyed the writing enough to not feel that way at all.It is not often that I would rank a title with five stars but I feel that Dracul definitely deserves it A great entry in Dracula canon and a great title on its own, if you have any interest in Dracula, the occult, vampires, the Stoker family, or any combination, you will find it very hard to be disappointed with Dracul.Just a great read all around and I am happy that I placed it ahead of other titles on my to read list.
