Abraham (Bram) Stoker was born November 8th, 1847 in Dublin, Ireland, 15 Marino Cresent, Clontarf. Bram was a weak and sickly child and he spent a lot of time in bed. Growing up his mother told him lots of horror stories which may have affected his future stories.
Stoker wrote eighteen books before his death in 1912 at the age of 64. After suffering a number of strokes, Stoker died at No. 26 St George's Square on 20th April 1912. It's said that he died of exhaustion.

The Goods and Bads of the Book
All in all, I think that the book was very good. It was exiting and Bram really made this horror filled book come to life. The only thing that bothered me was that the book was so full with details that it dulls the senses. In the first ten pages my interest level went down by 5%, but it gets better when Johnathan Harker meets Dracula. Another thing that I found that I was shocked by, was the inappropriate content between the pages. I know that this book is meant for adults, but some kids ( hint hint ) would like challenges so they turn to this book.
