18-year-old Jonathan Harker is diagnosed with a rare blood disorder after visiting a Romanian Count. His girlfriend Mina and a pre-med student named Van Helsing team up to investigate the source of the disease. The teenagers discover a horrifying truth: the Count is a vampire. The harrowing events unfold through emails, text messages, web pages, Twitter feeds, and instant messaging-the natural modernization of Bram Stoker's original Dracula, which was written in letters, diary entries, and news clippings.
This book was just really odd, I didn't feel that I knew any of the character and wouldn't have known what was going on, if not for reading the original book. I don't think that a classic should be turned into a text formated books. The scenery of Dracula is completely ignored and I didn't feel the fear or spookiness that is ussually convened with vampires or of course Dracula. This is a very quick read, but I didn't feel any connection with the story and it was too predictable. I think that this book would be perfect for someone that is in their early teens and are looking for quick read.
