      Is there a way to give negative stars Against my better judgement and despite my ingrained wariness of sequels to classic novels, I ill advisedly started Dracula The Undead in the optimistic hope that the author s relationship to Bram Stoker might have inspired him to actually write something or less worthy, as opposed to just exploiting his illustrious family connection for some quick cash Guess how that turned out This acorn has fallen so far from the tree that it can t even see the forest Ap [...]

      This book was horrible If you have ever read the classic novel Dracula by Bram Stoker DO NOT READ THIS It took me forever to read because I kept getting mad at it I only finished it so that I could write this review with a clear conscience This is nothing but one really long Fan Fiction written by Ian Holt and endorsed by Dacre Stoker.First of all it can not be a sequal to the Classic novel if you rewrite the events of the Classic novel They don t even follow the format established in Dracula of [...]

      Dracula The Un Dead may easily be the worst book I ever read The only reason I stuck with it to the end was to see how many atrocities one book could possibly contain The grammar is horrific The story is overly melodramatic It was implausible It reads like bad fan fiction It tries to throw in every gee whiz technological marvel of the era, including the Titanic One character speeds down the road in his automobile at 10 miles per hour The horror is repetitive, poorly written, and downright silly [...]

      Call it 3.5 stars and hope people can see how I came to thatAs All Hallow s Eve approaches, I chose another story with eerie undertones, though this one is sure to stir up some controversy Serving as a sequel to the classic original, Dacre Stoker works with renowned Dracula historian Ian Holt to bring this continuation of the story to life in fine form It is now 1912, twenty five years since Count Dracula has crumbled into dust Can this have been long enough for those who were directly involved [...]

      DNF the book a 30% and flipped through the pages I know flipping a Dracula book This book just drives a stake in the heart to any Draculian fans out there, such a pity The curse of the sequel to one of the Legendary Dracula Cannot believe this exists Why any expectations from this book for Anybody It is the actual sequel to the Original Written by a descendant to Bram Stoker Dacre Stoker Six freaking years in the making assuming they did Any sort of research It is about Dracula The Legendary Vam [...]

      I met Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt at BookExpo and got an autographed ARC copy of this book for free That s the good news I got it for free I liked Dacre Stoker notice how I didn t mention Ian Holt and I wanted to like his book but I was disappointed I was hoping for Dracula and less Elizabeth Bathory and Jack the Ripper Actually, there were about 400 characters in the book and the game of recognizing them started distracting me from the plot Besides for characters from the original book, Bram Sto [...]

      disappointed a lot.i feel like reading a crossover fan fiction by an amateur author who got a bit confused whether to make his own story or use his great grand uncle s famous character to sell the book.you see, there s count dracula and there s countess Elizabeth bathory both are generally known as blood drinker and sadist but after reading the book title dracula the un dead, i do believe we all assume that this story is about count dracula, not bathory hey, guess what the book consist 90% batho [...]

      So I read this after reading Dracula, which I throughly enjoyed I forced myself through this turdfest of a book until the bitter end So Dracula s a good guy, now Oooookay Jonanthan is now a drunk in a loveless marriage Ooooookay Mina got knocked up by Dracula and she s in love with Dracula Seward s a morphine addict Van Hesling my favorite charter from the pervious book is a tratious old codger Lesbian incest with an old fat aunt The Titanic Okay stop None of these characters showed ANY inclinat [...]

      I m a huge fan of the original Dracula, and I find this latest offering by Dacre to be paltry in comparison I suppose the social context in which it was written has a lot to do with it A lot has changed in the time between the two books, the original was published in 1897 and the latter was published in 2009 and the sort of graphic sadism and demonized lesbianism prevalent in this book is indicative of a generation obsessed with shock value For an example of this, please see any film in the grow [...]

      Veo que el libro tiene muchas cr ticas negativas Desde mi punto de vista, su principal fallo es ser promocionado como la secuela oficial de Dr cula Es obvio que eso le viene grande Ni creo que sus autores pretendiesen que fuese exactamente eso cuando lo escribieron No lo es.Le Dr cula de Stoker en 2013, y en seguida se convirti en uno de mis libros favoritos de todos los tiempos Esta novela siempre me produjo recelo Por qu le he dado cinco estrellas Lo primero, altera la historia previa los hech [...]

      Calling this book an official sequel is ludicrous The novel Dracula lays out in frightening detail Count Dracula s cruel nature and his plans to travel to England to feed off the teeming millions there This pathetic excuse to cash in on a family name and beloved novel completely ignores what Bram Stoker wrote and to further insult fans of the original novel, it incorporates bits and pieces of the 1992 Coppola film,adds in historical figures which are completely irrelevant and rearranges dates to [...]

      De este libro hice muchos comentarios en el avance de la lectura, que recomiendo leer para completar este comentario final.No le quer a darle 2 estrellas, porque algunas partes han estado muy bien, y tengo marcados con 2 otros libros que me han gustado menos pero, al final, me he decantado por no subirlo a 3 porque lo venden como la secuela m s o menos oficial por estar escrito por un familiar y basarse muy entre comillas, en notas de Bram Stoker, sobre todo, personajes que al final descart en l [...]

      When my dad told me that there was going to be a sequel to Dracula coming out and it was written by the great grand nephew of Bram Stoker I got excited I could not wait to get my hands on Dracula Un Dead I was hoping that it would end the modernized verison of vampires that Stephanie Meyer created But I was wrong I am going to first say that I am glad that I did not buy this book, instead I found it while I was looking through the shelves at the library for a good read With eagerness I snatched [...]

      Update Finished listening to this tale about the band of heroes a phrase heard endlessly over the course of this story UGH Suffise to stay give this book a miss You won t be sorry Everything you liked in Dracula will be missing from these pages Just the opposite Where Bram Stoker used words to mount tension, adventure and mystery, Dacre Stoker fills his pages with whiney, pale characters and lots of violence And blood Run OMG the melodrama Really, I don t see a high rating for this book Stereoty [...]

      I loved this book I did not go into the book expecting to be gripped by the literary writing style of Bram Stoker and perhaps that is why I was able to enjoy the book If you want the classic, then go read the classic Dracula the Un Dead is a strong book that stands on its own.Having just read Bram Stoker s Dracula, I was eager to learn what had become of the beloved characters To be completely honest I was disappointed by the hum drum they all lived happily ever after ending of the original.Stok [...]

      I know that many people have readily slated this book as being ridiculous That s up to them I like to take books as I find them and rate them on how well written and well researched I think they are, whether I can learm anything from them, whether they show me a new way of looking at things and finally and mostly whether I enjoy reading them For me, this ticked all the boxes in the affirmative It s probably not perfect, possibly not the vision Bram Stoker would have imagined But at the end of th [...]

      I have to say I was ecstatic to read Dracula Undead, especially knowing it was written by a direct descendant from the Stoker family and authorized by its estate I found myself excited when I received the gorgeous book in dark red and crinkled aged paper stain design that made it look like it was ancient Even the pages themselves were gorgeously put together I was a little nervous about the blurb which told where all of our heroes were Heroes that fell from grace, sure, but maybe there s a spiff [...]

      I m unsure as to what to say about this book I got it for christmas as was extremely excited to read it, in fact I read it in 2 days with interruption of course I suppose I should start of by saying that I have actually read the first Dracula and I love the story on so many levels With this book I was looking forward to getting away of the horrid things Twilight has done to the vampire myths and going back to people that should have a vested interest in keeping the original ideals This was not t [...]

      Downloaded this from Kindle and thank the Lorhd I didn t pay hardcover price for it What a frustrating book The name checking of entertainment types who have had something to do with Dracula cheap, boring and distracting Another apologist version of Dracula misunderstood Wallachian Christian hero yaaaawn.The action was frenetic there are a few good race to get somewhere scenes but the characters inner monologues were laughably bad Quincey Morris son of Jonathan and Mina Harker is an arrogant, se [...]

      Dear Dacre Stoker,Apparently, your sequel to Bram Stoker s Dracula, Dracula The Un Dead, was a tribute to your great grand uncle Please, do not be offended by what is to follow.First of all, I would love to know how this sequel became the official Dracula sequel Did Bram Stoker himself give his approval Seeing that he is buried six feet underground, I suspect the only fact that makes this book official is your family name That is, to me, a very negligible argument since from now on, anyone named [...]

      I wanted to like this book Oh, you have no idea how badly I wanted to like this book And I do, sort of, kind of, in a funny way.I think I would like it if it was a movie and all the names were changed Because that s what it read like a movie I could see each scene in my mind, the dramatic moments, the cinematic special effects But to me, that wasn t what the original Dracula was about to me.The characters, the original Band of Heroes, have fallen onto hard times This is completely understandable [...]

      When I read the last page and closed the book I had mixed emotions First, relief that it was over Second, sadness at the thought that my memory of the wonderful piece of literature that is Dracula will always be soiled by this book Third, anger that Dacre Stoker made money off this book.This book is a slap in the face to Bram Stoker and literature The authors jumped on the bandwagon of Vampire mania by publishing amidst the frenzy of vampire novels It is as if the two of them sat down, watched a [...]

      Written by a Stoker family member and a Dracula researcher screenwriter and it shows Between infodumps I sometimes felt like I was reading a nonfiction combination of a Walking Guide to London, The Real Story of Dracula , and The Real Story of Jack The Ripper and telling not showing description please, please stop telling me about how much Quincy Harker resents Johnathan Harker I was ready to chuck this book at the wall by about page 80 I kept reading, in hope that it would get better, but it d [...]

      Bram Stoker s Dracula has long been in my all time top 10 favourite books, and I had mixed feelings when I saw this billed as the true sequel Written by a descendant of Bram s and Ian Holt and based on Bram s own notes, I wondered if it would be a worthy successor, it certainly seemed to have the pedigree I found it to be very enjoyable, the inclusion of Elizabeth Bathory into the plot fit well, she is a captivating foe Aligning the story into the Jack the Ripper crimes really added to my enjoym [...]

      A badly written,badly researched non sequel Holt threw in everything he could to thrill the horror tastes of younger readers in 2012 He did this with no respect for the original, which he largely ignored in favour of 20th century movies, vampire trends and research books on Vlad the Impaler which only sold because they cashed in on Bram s original book Dracula which had nothind to do with Vlad.Holt is merely an opportunist,Dacre a sell out whose only contribution was his family name which Holt d [...]

      I want to say that this book was a complete and utter disappointment It is worse than that Its Horrible A SEQUEL TO THE ORIGINAL That it is not This book was painful to read I knew going into it, with all the reviews I had read, what I was facing It seems to me that this book was written out of spite and greed Bram Stoker is rolling in his grave I would not recommend this book to anyone Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt did not need the help of their Villains to destroy Bram Stoker or his characters The [...]

      This book pained me, when I first spotted it in my local bookstore I got somewhat excited at the prospect of a sequel to my beloved Dracula and written by a descendent of Bram himself so I had some high expectations But then I started reading it and things went a bit wrong from there To be fair to the book I m going to review it in two ways, the first as a story in it s own right and the second as a sequel to Dracula.As a stand alone story that has obvious nicked a lot of the characters from els [...]

      Judging by the self congratulatory Authors Note and sycophantic Afterword, Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt seem to believe this book to be not only a great literary work, but also a socio historical milestone They are so wrong it is difficult for me to express in words It may even be a worse attempt at Dracula fanfiction than Dracula in Love Which is criticism indeed It s boring, badly plotted and frequently makes little or no sense I am at a complete loss as to why Erzs bet B thory, subtly characteri [...]
