Blame Stanley

Well, this is a fine kettle of fish. Delayed already, and it’s only the second book!

I shall hastily say a few mea culpa‘s and continue.

Dracula has been obtained, and though I’ve only just started it I can already comment about the interesting setup of writing it in terms of a series of journal entries from various characters. This is purported to give it an immediacy and verisimilitude*, which it probably does. It will be interesting to see if the author manages to convey a different “voice” when it’s a different character’s turn to give their account of an event.

Till next time… (which hopefully won’t be so long away, assuming I manage to find some time to read a bit more).

* It’s a particularly eye-catching shade of magenta.
