Spooky Read: Dracula

Read: Dracula by Bram Stoker
Stars: Five

Drinking: So Much Coffee!

Dracula is quite possibly the scariest book I have ever read.  It was assigned to my 11th grade English class, and I foolishly stayed up all night to read it. I have reread it many times since, but I will never forget my feelings from that first reading.  Stoker brings suspense and outright fear to this thriller, the original vampire novel.

The story is told as a series of journal entries by our hapless narrator, who finds himself in Romania at the home of a mysterious count. As the action moves to England, and our narrator learns the truth about his friend, the tension rises.  There are no sparkles or true love here. It’s a well-written, suspenseful book. If you read it, however, make sure it is daytime.  Or have a crucifix handy…
