Review of iDRAKULA, By: Bekka Black

Title: iDrakula
Author: Bekka Black
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire, imprint of Sourcebooks, Inc.
Released: 2010
Quick Summary: If you know the gist of Bram Stoker's Dracula then the story will be easy as pie to understand. The characters Lucy, Jonathon, Mina, and Van Helsing jump into the modern world of cell phones and email, but they still have to deal with a centuries old count leaving his homeland of Romania for New York City. The story is the same, puncture wounds on the neck, Reinfield going crazy, and having to banish Count Dracula once and for all to save themselves. It's Bram Stoker's Dracula with a modern twist.
My Thoughts: I enjoyed iDrakula. It was an extremely quick read. The format is made up of e-mails, text messages, and photo attachments and I'm drawn to those book that provide a different textual twist. In order to better understand the book, the reader should have a sort of general knowledge of Bram Stoker's Dracula, of the characters and plot. It was an enjoyable read and is recommended to all lovers of the Dracula story.
