Dracula - Preconceptions [Sep. 17th, 2004|09:54 am]

Was anyone surprised by the difference between what you previously thought about Dracula and what you thought after reading the book?

I was amazed by the completeness of his character, the intelligence and respect endowed to him by the writer. He wasn't an absurd "I vant to suck your bloooood" charicature or an over the top two dimensional character.

What were other people's feelings about this?

Dracula - Characters [Sep. 16th, 2004|10:32 am]

Who were people's favourite characters and why?

I think my favourite character was Castle Dracula. It was cool and atmospheric. I also liked Dracula's character alot.

So far as the non-evils go I guess Dr Sewald had the most interesting journal and he wasn't altogether stupid. Like Mina not realising Dracula was getting into her when she was all faint and having nightmares. It's like hello Mina, it happened to Lucy exactly the same way?!

Dracula - General Discussion [Sep. 15th, 2004|08:42 am]

What were people's general impressions of the book?

I was surprised at the structure of the book, being entirely constructed of correspondence and journals. It was so cool!

I was also really impressed with how real and comprehensive it felt. I watched the Francis Ford Coppolla version of the movie last night, which is reasonable true to the book. It really does make for a gripping story (and go Gary Oldman!!!)

I thought it was really interested to take the conventional horror that we are used to but to get a sense of how it fitted into a society of time past. The implications are interesting and it makes you wonder what would have happened had it not been for Dr Van Helsing... I think London would have had a great deal less blood in it!

I read The Da Vinci Code - it blew my mind regarding arts and religion. And there are things I now question about the arts and religion. I am going back to school this fall and I am seriously thinking about taking up an art course about this. As well as religion studies.

I am confused about the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene - are they two different person though. Correct me if I am wrong : Virgin Mary is Jesus's mother and Mary Magdalene is Jesus's supposely wife / lover ? It is such a shame that Mary M. is was viewed / casted as a whore when she is truly much more larger than life....

IT was that good I had to pick up the book "The Secrets of The Code : The Unauthorized Guide to the Mysteries Behind The Da Vinci Code" I just started reading it the other day.

Did anyone have a favourite character?

I thought Sophie was pretty cool, with her mental crypto brain. Sir Leigh was pretty amusing as well.

Suspicious Characters With Unexpected Qualities [Aug. 11th, 2004|01:24 pm]
Pulp Fusion Book Club
aceboi82
I'm wondering if anyone was particularly surprised by any character's actions or behaviour? Or if they suspected anyone incorrectly?

I was nearly certain that the bank manager would be a bad man, also Besu Fache. I think the author was pretty good at making everyone seem suspicious. I reckon that poor old nun should have pulled some kamikazee ninja shit on Silas' ass.
