It is not an everyday job! You cannot wake up and continue writing Dracula as Mr Stoker might have done in his prime years. Dracula takes pensive turns out of the days of readers who read it today. Written in the form of diary entries, journals and newspaper outputs, the ‘remains’ of a supposed horror tale is no more appealing when we compare it with movies on Dracula that have been made by reputed producers and acted by popular actors. I am all in for books over movies any day but Dracula, over the decades, have lost pace, warmth and grip. If you are in for class, language and some Victorian elegance, Dracula by Bram Stoker will still chase you to the end.

Dracula by Bram Stoker – Book Review
Dracula has surpassed its charm for young readers of the day. Classic will still appeal, though, to traditional readers and literary conscious readers.
