My expectations weren't really met... Funny at times and it's an interesting idea, writing a diary as if it's Dracula's but that's about it. I assume it has something to do with the translation... I read it in Dutch. Hope for others who will be reading it in English it'll be more fun! I did like the fact that there also clippings, personal lists and more "proof" of what Dracula is writing about.

I was lucky to come across this book! It is a great read. Darkly funny and devilishly tasteful! Of course you need a refined sense of humour to laugh at the subtle jokes, satires and sarcasm. It makes you think, firing neurons connecting the hair-raising vampire lore with the "teenification" of vampire cults in popular media. It is written from the "glorious" perspective from the big V himself, Count Vlad Dracula, full with notes, business cards, diagrams, invoices etc. When you finish the book ...more

Since I found this book in the children's section of the store I bought it at I was a little.. surprised at some of the more sexual content. I became then a little lost on what age group it was supposed to target, since the overall design of the thing does lend it more to, say, 12 or under (or, you know, the adult that is amused by this sort of thing) - but, don't judge a book by its cover, I suppose.

It's a quick and easy read and I must admit to finding it rather amusing. Laughed out loud a few

It's nice that the book is so thin, because you can finish it at once. If it was longer, it would have become boring. The book is supposed to be funny and has very dry humor in it. Sometimes I didn't get the jokes though, dry humor isn't my kind of thing. But it was entertaining and worth reading, although I had higher expectations.

Fun read, not to be taken seriously it's full of dry humour and subtle (and not so subtle) digs at vampire culture.
Entertaining if you're interested in the subject at all and can be read on one sitting.

Funny, utterly useless book to read with not even random facts.
I loved the illustrations of all his ideas in the book that made it fun to read.
Just a great in-between book to read next to all your fancy literature.

Geestig, maar eenmaal halverwege is de grap er wel een beetje af en borduurt het wat te lang verder. Maar toch een vermakelijk boekje.
