About the Author

Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847 - 1912) was an Irish author, best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula. During his lifetime, he was better known as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. Stoker was bedridden with an unknown illness until he started school at the age of seven, when he made a complete recovery. Of this time, Stoker wrote, "I was naturally thoughtful and the leisure of long illness gave opportunity for many thoughts which were fruitful according to their kind in later years."

Interesting, good parts, however the writing style is archaic or dated. Disappointed in the ending.

If you're familiar with this work then it's probably 'cause of the great film it was made into by Ken Russell, and if you go to it looking for it being close to the movie, then you'd be let down. But it's a very weird novel, I've heard that Stoker was losing his mind as he was writing, and he died soon afterwards, I don't how accurate that is, Though false Or True it seems like a greatly advanced novel for 1911. maybe James Joyce would have liked it, It is cutely bizarre. I am impressed by Bram Stoker's depiction and description of manifesting evil. This is an important book to read if you've got literary aspirations.
