Thoroughly impressed by Stoker’s writing in Dracula, I wanted to see how it carried over in work of a different sort. This book, rarely reviewed or described online, seemed a good choice where nobody else’s perceptions influenced mine. We meet lovely teenager Stephen (her father wanted a boy…) and Harold, approaching manhood, at the outset. We’re to find out about their lives from their births to adulthood. They are beautifully drawn characters, almost too perfect each physically and in terms of ...more
THE MAN is not an outstanding book but has its own charm in the descriptions and the character. after reading DRACULA , i had great expectations of a good story line but it turned out to be just average. The only thing that makes it worth a read , is the distinct nature of the character and the impact they have on the reader. Bram Stoker shows his feminist views with the character Stephen.for a man to create a strong feminist character like Stephen quite amuses me. the best part about stoker's w ...more
I would've never guessed this was a Bram Stoker novel, especially one written after Dracula. [A bit of a spoiler here, but not really.] The plot is rather predictable and irritating in the manner of certain 18th-century novels: a minor misunderstanding separates the hero from the heroine, who are clearly meant to be together, for the bulk of the novel, and convention and fear of offending each other prevent them from getting back together until the very last moment. I wanted to slap both of them ...more
A romance story; very dramatic and women's rightist in a way. Predictable.

Another great book by Bram Stoker! This book was a lot different than the first two Stoker books that I read: Dracula and Jewel of Seven Stars, but nonetheless is was written in the same style that makes his other books so hard to put down. The ending was a bit predictable, but I didn't mind that too much.
actually one of my favorites. Stephen was a really well written character (which is surprising regarding Stoker's tendency to ruin his female characters)
