This is book is good, not great, but good. I really enjoyed how all of it was emails or texts or browsers. I love books that that so this, for me, was a literal feast. However, this book progressed too fast and the relationships in it was too fast. Overall everything seemed a bit too unrealistic for fiction and too simple and flat

Extremely fast read! Really neat little book. It takes the very basics of the story of Dracula and modernizes it. The whole story is told by text, emails, and web screen shots. Struggling YA readers might enjoy this.

I dunno if you could actually consider this good.. It was kind of hard to understand if you havent read the original novel. I normally read things like the Da Vinci Code so this was a interesting twist.

A pretty good book..... it takes the main concepts of the original novel and makes it way easier to understand and less boring and contradictory. The only thing I didn't like was how the ending was changed a bit, and it only took me about half an hour to read. Over all a good book.

Surprisingly a nice twist on the story.. An excellent introduction to the actual story that does not include the word "Twilight".

I was impressed with this book!
