Read of the Month: January

Please, don't get me wrong. I am far far away from all that vampire madness. I do believe that Dracula has little in common with all the modern stuff that is so popular right now. I mean, a classic is a classic after all.
It's been a long time since I've read a book so tense and intriguing. Sometimes I even imagine what would have been if I hadn't known anything about the plot beforehand. It would have been even a greater experience.
That is the only thing I don't like about classic novels. Almost every time you know a little bit of the plot and this could ruin a surprise. But even if you knew the very ending of Dracula (i don't know it yet, please don't spoil it!), reading the book would still be a great pleasure. I hold my breath at the end of every chapter, hoping all goes well with my favourite characters. I feel like I am behind the back of Mr Jonathan Harker every time he writes in his diary about the mysterious behavior of Count Dracula.
That is how you know a great masterpiece - when you feel like a part of the story. Even if you don't like vampires, you will definitely like the book.


  1. Oh!!!! I bet this book is amazing! I have seen the movie and have it on vhs and on blue Ray.

  2. Well it's in my reading wish list. However, everytime that i go to the public library i think about it and i postpone to rent it. =)

  3. I know what you mean about Classics and already knowing the story more or less. I like to track down little-heard of Classics and indulge in discovering them for the first time!

  4. One of the best books ever written and don't worry, no one whose seen the movies will spoil it for you. They're totally different. Enjoy! :)
