The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

Time Warner Books

Mark Haddon

'A spirited update of Bram Stoker's classic, with a vastly ingenious plot in which Dracula has developed a mysterious penchant for librarians………Kostova is a whiz at storytelling and narrative pace.'




This is a very enjoyable and exciting read. You try to play 'detective' as you read the book but most of the plot stays just out of reach. I was a little put off by the idea of Dracula as I definitely do not like scary stories but I did not find this to be a scary story at all. So I disagree with some of the reviews on the cover of the book. I recommend this as a thoroughly good 'murder-mystery'. Read it with this in mind and you will not be disappointed.
