Drácula

By Bram Stoker & Guillermo Tirelli
Drácula by Bram Stoker & Guillermo Tirelli digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Drácula de Bram Stoker es una obra seminal de la literatura gótica. La narración se desarrolla a través de una serie de anotaciones en un diario, cartas y recortes de periódico, que proporcionan una perspectiva polifacética de los desgarradores acontecimientos que se suceden. La historia comienza con Jonathan Harker, un joven abogado inglés, que viaja al remoto castillo del Conde Drácula en Transilvania para ayudar en una transacción inmobiliaria. Sin embargo, a medida que Harker se adentra en los dominios de Drácula, es cada vez más consciente de la naturaleza ominosa y sobrenatural de su anfitrión.

A medida que se desarrolla la trama y el escenario cambia a Inglaterra, los lectores se ven arrastrados a un mundo de suspense, horror y terror psicológico (la tensión culmina en un dramático enfrentamiento en el castillo de Drácula, donde las fuerzas del bien chocan con la encarnación del mal). Stoker entreteje con maestría los temas del miedo, los deseos prohibidos y el choque entre la modernidad y las antiguas supersticiones. La novela explora las profundas ansiedades de la sociedad victoriana, reflejando las tensiones culturales de la época.

Drácula no es un mero relato de terror; es una profunda exploración de la psique humana, que ahonda en temas como el amor, el sacrificio y la eterna lucha entre la oscuridad y la luz. La prosa rica y evocadora de Stoker capta la atmósfera gótica, creando un impacto duradero en el género de terror.

Esta edición presenta la visión original y desenfrenada de Stoker, permitiendo a los lectores sumergirse en el terror intemporal de Drácula.

“It took me some time to warm up to this book. At first, i found the language a bit archaic, and once we changed POV's, i was confused about the plot. So after putting it down for some time, i watched the movie "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992), and that's what motivated me to pick it up again. This helped me in following the plot a bit better, so i recommend it if you are stuck with it! Well, the book was full of surprises. I have to say that the book had much more action than I expected, even if the story itslef is slow-paced. I was so eager to know what was going to happen next, but this is not like a YA book you can read in one sitting- the language kinda sets you back a bit. Which is why watching the movie helped me. Once we get different points of view, things start to get much more interesting. You can really see the difference in way of speaking and thoughts of the different characters, so i really enjoyed the fact that it is written as diary excerpts. I understand, though, that it may make some things confusing if you do not know which direction the plot is going. For a book from this era, a classic, i found it quite modern! There is mystery, an investigation, some drama, and modern science (like blood transfusions)...! It really hooks you in! And we have two female characters that are strong and relevant to the plot! I was both surprised and pleased to see this. Mina is one of my favourite characters in the book. The only time the men try to take her away from the investigation, they fuck up quite badly... thus reassuring how clever and useful she is! While i also enjoyed Jonathan as a character, his writting style was a bit more boring. I enjoyed Lucy's excerpts, as well as the doctor's. And Van Helsing, well... i think he is a well constructed character. But sometimes, his explanations are a bit too much. He says things without giving the complete picture at the begining, and towards the end, all of his knowledge of the vampire lore is a bit too repetitive. But i understand that this is because we, as modern readers, know what vampires are, and what are their weaknesses, and that, if we were to read this back when it was published, Van Helsing would be the character that would incite us to think about what kind of creature Dracula is. The setting moves from place to place, and the investigation moves forward, keeping the story fresh while connecting the dots. The major problem for me, and the only reason why i didn't give it 5 stars, was the ending. So anticlimatic! Specially after having seen the movie. I didn't expect the same ending by any means... but i was expecting a big final fight or a final villain moment where Dracula explains his purpuse, how did he became a vampire, why did he decide to move to London, a revelation of his big great plans, why are the three women there with him... And we get nothing of this. After 500 hundred pages leading to this moment it felt a bit disappointing. Like, if this is how it was going to end, you could have made the book way shorter. The epilogue could have also been a bit longer. I would have liked to see where was everyone and who did they end up with; it felt a bit rushed, just like the ending, as if the author was running out of paper or something. But i did like that we get to know at least a little bit about what the characters have been up to. Overall, a good book, which surprised me in a nice way. I see why it is a classic, and how it innovates.. I enjoyed way more than Carmilla. I will for sure re-read parts of it... as well as rewatch the movie.”
