About book: Dracula is one of my favorite books, and I was attracted to the idea of a modern version that uses text messaging, email, etc. to replicate the epistolary format of the original. I thought it was a cute idea, and the book was entertaining enough for what it was, but nothing particularly gripping or groundbreaking. It's very short, which could be an advantage in the sense that you don't need to invest too much time in what is essentially a "gimmick" book; but perhaps if it had been longer the characters more fleshed out and the situations developed in more detail, the book could have been something more. Leila HabayebIndependent ReadingSeptember 27, 2012“iDrakula by Bekka Black – 150 pages”iDrakula is a captivating, interesting horror novel about 18-year-old Jonathan Harker, who is diagnosed with an rare blood disorder after a trip to a trip to Romania. His girlfriend Mina and their pre-med friend Van work together to try to figure out the reasoning behind this disease. After a while they find out that the Count that Jon visited in Romania was a vampire. From there on in the story Mina and Van work together to kill off the several vampires they figure out are in the city. The novel ends with a love story in which Mina and Van end up falling in love and getting married. I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of the way it was written, the captivating story line that made me not want to put the book down and the fact that it was humorous as well. The book was written in a sort of texting, e-mailing format. Each story is told through e-mail, or test, or internet pages which I think is an extremely cool way of getting the message across, and it holds the reader in, making them want to keep reading. The story line was great too, although it is a horror book by genre, I loved the fact that there was some humor snuck into it as well. Overall iDrakula by Bekka Black was a great book that I would recommend to anyone looking for a quick, fun read.
