Though very hard to read because of the many different POVs throughout the book, this book was amazing!! It is told in a manner not alike any other book I have read, through a chronological ordering of all forms of media pertaining to specific events surrounding the main character and point of time for him to be (view spoiler). The story begins from Jonathan Harker's journal, and continues through other peoples journals, their letters, newspaper clippings, telegrams, event invitations, and women's diaries. Every page or so, the POV changes... this is the only obstical through the actual task of reading the book. Once you get used to gathering the story from this way, it becomes much easier to read through to the end. The one thing I will say annoyed me actually isn't to do with the book, but more with the adaptations I have seen involving the love story (view spoiler)... but yet in the movies, they seem to add it. Am I just not getting the whole story??? Anyone reading this who doesn't agree, please give me a page number from the book that can correct me on this matter. I understand why this was a classic. I will keep it among my favorite books.
This isn't your casual love story. This is a story about a slightly eccentric Plato G. Fussell, rich, handsome, and a bit obsessive-compulsive. I loved the storyline as it was rich in great detail and Blumenthal's use of puns kept me smiling throughout the entire novel. Moreover, Plato becomes such a lovable character that you don't realize how crazy he really is! I enjoyed this book because it is lighthearted, and carries a somewhat whimsical tone. It is a story that will warm your heart as it has warmed mine.
For not citing any sources and being one really long, techno-fatal, super optimistic collection of opinion and anecdotes that all lead to the moral: America, you're going to have to try harder, the future depends on it, it was a really enjoyable read full of really interesting stories and fun facts. Some McDonald's outsource their drive-through orders to colorado and then send them back to complete the order! WHOA. Muslims in India are way better at making money than Muslims with oil! WHOA. Can't beat Bush Bashing AND Corporate apologetics in the same book! Capitalism is the new left! YAY!
