The Romance of Dracula
Charles E. Butler

I was very pleased when I was asked to read and review The Romance of Dracula by Charles E. Butler. I thought I knew everything there was to know about Dracula, but after reading this book, I was surprised and pleased to find out there was more to discover. A tremendous amount of research and work into making  The Romance of Dracula. I was totally amazed and beyond impressed with the outcome. Anything a person wants to know about Dracula, to who has played him over the years to each and every movie about him, is all in The Romance of Dracula.

As quoted in the book: "Each chapter is designed to be read in two parts. Part one consists of a scene-by-scene synopsis of the film under scrutiny; this can be consulted, in many cases, as the movie unfolds. Part two is an honest review of the same film; i.e. - Chapter One deals with F W Murnau's silent classic Nosferatu (1922) starring Max Schreck." This statement is vital to the story in order for the reader to understand the events that are unfolding in the book. I found it to be a breath of fresh air because I have never come across this style of writing to make the story understandable. Yet another surprise by Charles E. Butler.

When we hear the name Bram Stoker, we automatically think of Dracula. But what do people really know about Bram Stoker other than the fact he created Dracula? Do we know what he went through in order to bring Dracula into our world? There is so much details based on fact in this book, I could never do it justice in this review.

If you are interested in Dracula or vampires in general then The Romance of Dracula by Charles E. Butler is highly recommended! I feel you would not have to search any further to appease your curiosity. To write a review that does this book total justice would be almost impossible because from page one it captures the reader and takes them into the world of DRACULA, the very name that causes nightmares in some, and erotic curiosity in others.

I recommend this book 100% and give it Five Stars *****

A summary written by Charles E. Butler pretty much says it all and is quoted from here:

Count Dracula was created in 1897 in the story Dracula written by Irish author and theatre Manager Bram Stoker (1847-1912)

" Inside stood a tall, old man, clad in black from head to foot, without a single speck of colour about him anywhere..."

So is the description by Jonathon Harker as he greets one of the most famous monsters of fiction:

Count Dracula!

This page is an appreciation of the vampire's longevity on screen, in novels, comic books and even hokey images on the backs of cereal packages and makeshift rattles for our children!
I want to thank Mr. Butler for all of the research he has done on the life of Dracula. His insights of the Count are very entertaining and sometimes unbelievable, but you know within yourself, he is spot on in his research. There have been questions about Dracula as far back as when I first came across him and fell in love with the 'vampire' lore. You can find tons and endless tons of references and stories of the folklore and it seems endless when you get into it. I am very grateful to Mr. Butler for doing all of this and more so it fills in some of the blanks I had about one of the greatest characters ever created Count Dracula.
