Book Review: Dracula by Bram Stoker

9781785996269_Z

Dracula is one of the most famous novels ever written and the story from the book has been adapted into new stories, television, film and other media more than most other books.

Bram-Stoker

The famous story was written by Irish Author Bram Stoker and was first released to the public in 1897.

In the story Count Dracula wants to move from his castle in Transylvania to the city of London where he plans to bite unsuspecting victims and spread his vampire curse.

The book is not written as the author telling you a story but it instead written as diary entries of the main characters, letters between those characters and the occasional news paper article.

It took me a while to adapt to this style of writing as I am not used to it however after only a few chapters I was hooked, the writing style kept me engrossed in the events of the book as it was much more realistic than the usual format for a story.

I enjoyed all of the main characters as they each were likeable and as the reader I was rooting for their survival and at times the book had me worried for what may have happened to them as the book went on.

The book has a very creepy and Gothic vibe to it which I really liked, the best parts for me were when vampires were involved in some manner.

I was surprised to how different the novel was to the excellent 1931 film adaptation starring Bela Lugosi. It almost felt like a completely different story which was fantastic as I never knew what to expect in regards to how the plot would unfold in the novel

Dracula is an excellent book which I would highly recommend horror fans to sink their teeth into for a creepy and memorable story that stands the test of time and with that I say Happy Halloween for 2019, I wish you all a safe and haunted holiday and I will update this website now in November.

I hope you enjoyed this review of Dracula by Bram Stoker

Bad ass USA Cereals we don’t get the UK

 

As you all may know breakfast is the most important meal of the day and there is a large variety of breakfast cereals to choose from but here in the UK not a lot of people eat breakfast cereals or breakfast for that matter.

Your parents may say try and eat some or stop being lazy and eat your damn cereal, were not eating our cereal because we are lazy, we are not eating our cereal because cereal in the UK fucking sucks and most of it taste like cardboard.

Like almost everything else in America breakfast time is all rainbows and unicorns not because there a nation who believes in having a balanced diet, no they all love breakfast because of their fucking breakfast cereals this is because instead of being stuck with all the protein and fibre kids need for breakfast American cereals give kids all the unhealthy sugary goodness that’s kids want.

This is going to be a list of the top 3 USA breakfast cereals that I want to be sold in the UK.

3. Trix

Let me tell you why most fruit flavoured cereals suck it’s because lot of them don’t taste like fruit. That’s freaking ridiculous kids don’t want to eat fruit anyway so what’s the point in advertising a cereal that tastes like fruit when in reality it taste like crap. Trix on the other hand genuinely does taste like fruit and it’s pretty damn tasty too. I think that to make a cereal have high sales on the market it needs to have a good mascot to represent the cereal. Trix the rabbit is a hilarious mascot I feel bad for him sometimes because he can never have his own cereal because apparently Trix is for kids.

2.  Lucky Charms

 ImageThis cereal is so fucking trippy that its awesome imagine getting a basic bowl of cereal which is kind of boring then throwing a rainbow of marshmallows in the bowl which truly brings out the sugary and fruity flavours that kid’s desire. That’s what lucky charms tastes like it’s not the best but it sure tastes good

 1.

The number one cereal I think we need to have in the UK even if it’s just once a year for Halloween has got to be Count Chocula.

ImageThis cereal is so bad for you but its tastes so amazing that we don’t care about what it’s doing to our bodies or our teeth. Lucky charms had a basic cereal with fruity flavoured marshmallows Count Chocula has chocolate cereal with chocolate marshmallows in my opinion that’s every kid’s dream.  Count Chocula was created by General Mills in 1971 and was released along with a strawberry version of the cereal called Frankenberry

Image

As time passed and the popularity of both Count Chocula and Frankenberry got much larger General Mills released some other cereals Boo Berry a blueberry version of the cereal, Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy both mixed fruit flavours of the cereals Fruit brute and Yummy Mummy didn’t last long and were soon scrapped.

In stores all over America you can still buy Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Boo Berry cereals but when the cereal first got released you only had two choices Count Chocula or Frankenberry and you had to pick a side you couldn’t choose both and this caused a similar argument to which is better SNES or Genesis I personally prefer Count Chocula but that’s just my opinion

which do you prefer?

P.S if you’re wondering how I know what these cereals taste like I’ve been to America and I have tried all of them as well as other cereals which didn’t satisfy my taste buds as much as these did.
