Read full description of the books:
Honestly, not the worst book I have ever read. But why the fuck would you want to do this??? Why lay a copy of Dracula on the ground, squat over it and spread your ass cheeks wide, and proceed to take a great big stinking shit on top of every single page of Bram Stoker's original brilliantly written story??!!
*SPOILER ALERT* (actually, I'm not spoiling shit for you, cause this book sucks)
Okay, it's the twentieth century and Mina and Jonathan Harker's great grand kids are trapped in a car during a snowstorm and Count Dracula is sitting in the back seat with a tape recorder telling them that they were lied to by their family and that the event's in Dracula were not the correct account of what happened. Basically tells how Dracula was just the misunderstood guy. It makes, although well explained, tall claims about what "really" happened in Dracula. Like, "Oh no, that part where Jonathan Harker said I fed my brides a baby. That wasn't a baby, it was a piglet!". And constantly talks about how he hated Van Helsing, but portrays him as stupid, self righteous and cowardly. He refers to Van Helsing as "The Butcher" throughout the whole book. It's not surprising that these two characters would hate one another, but Van Helsing is portrayed as a careless, sadistic asshole in this...not the wise hero that Stoker meant him to be. Oh, and R. M. Renfield was a rapist. Yeah of course, it was real convinient to say Renfield was a rapist cause he had psychological problems! And therefore he has to be full of shit too then! Also stripping away his heroic and redeeming death in the original.
Even Dracula expert, Leonard Wolf, said "It is a gimmicky fiction whose primary gimmick is is that Dracula is the book's narrator and the fun is supposed to come from the ways in which the characters Stoker invented are made to look lugubrious or silly as they are seen from Dracula's point of view. The trouble is that Saberhagen like many practitioners of vampire fiction who have chosen to depict their vampires as sympathetic figures, leaches the horror from the image of the vampire. The result is that The Dracula Tape, though it is a pleasant enough fiction, is thin."
Yeah, it's like all the other characters are made to be one dimensional cartoon characters...and "Oh, poor Dracula...he was just in love with Mina, that was it! He wasn't evil!". It's not listed in the credits to the movie, but supposedly Fred Saberhagen had a hand in writing the script for Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula. I actually liked that film, but the only thing I didn't like was the Romeo & Juliet/Anne Rice bullshit between Dracula and Mina in there.
Not to speak ill of the dead, but...FUCK YOU, FRED SABERHAGEN FOR WRITING THIS!!!.
