Book Faction Book One: Dracula by Bram Stoker

Introduction:

Bram Stoker's Dracula is an epistolary novel told from the view of its protagonists. Since it is told through letters, news clippings and journal entries, there is a unique feel for the writing. The book has 27 chapters and is considered a classic. Stoker was an Irish novelist. There is a sequel to Dracula called Dracula's Guest.
