The Historian

Post by CrazyCraftLady »

I'm currently listening to an audiobook version of this.

The reviews on Goodreads seem to be split between 1* reviews of people who hate that it's all about historians tracking down primary sources about Dracula, told in three diegetic levels (through letters written in ridiculously unrealistic detail) and people loving the same. I'm in the latter camp.

It's not called "The Historian vs Dracula" it's called the Historian. I'm about half way through, and although I'm not really impressed by the details on Vlad Tepis's life, I'm loving the details about Europe in the 1930's, 1950's and 1970's.

There are definitely creepy horror elements, but it's the history that makes this work for me.
