I love books written as journals, and was hopeful for this one. Jan 19, Nathan rated it liked it. A fantastically fun read, full of delightful descriptions; including a surprising smattering of gore.
It’s a waste of money. For the first time, in his own words, the legendary vampire hunter tells his own story – his background and early years – his research in Rumania and the Mideast – his medical work -and most importantly his discovery of perhaps the greatest threat to man’s dominion on earth, vampires.
When I first saw the hardcover edition of this book I fell in love with it, the ruffled journal-like pages paired with beautiful illustrations, I thought this was going to be a delight to read, which it was at first. Jan 18, Justin Ottolino rated it really liked it. The tale of Dracula is mentioned briefly but his other exploits are the focus of this book. My youngest son and I read this at Barne’s and Noble’s since I wouldn’t lend him the money to buy it! Overall, I wasn’t really impressed with this book.
Il diario del professor Abraham Van Helsing: : Books
Maybe I have monster fatigue, after the wretched movie about Van Helsing that came out last summer, but I found this story to be cliched and totally unoriginal.
It was This book was written as a series of journal entries with postscripts. I understand it was meant to be a journal and as such summaries of events could be expected. I didn’t mind the notes that Daniel Kupfer adds to Van Helsing’s journal. Filled with data to inform, and tips to educate, the journal is more than a study of vampirism.
Like it was something that Van Helsing went through, but no reason was given as to why he left no notes or entries about the events in Hlsing and Transylvania.
He’s had two encounters with the undead. He actually handles it very nicely, because I think this book would have been a bore if handled in another fashion.
Serious gap is just what happens to the child vampire at the window, author is too busy to get the sexy main protagonist in the windo w to toss the main character out cold. I particularly enjoyed Kupfer’s grandfather’s notes, especially the last one. They are malicious, ruthless and much like rabid dogs. The secenery seemed to be the main event since the meeting with Dracula was out of the question and dealing with Lilith failed over and over again until I assume that even the author lo st interest on it and made the main character post his journal to his friend.
The story begins to lag after Van Helsing returns home and sets off on another vampire hunt; there is some action but it is not as dlario as the first action sequences and do not expect a neat ending because the story ends abruptly which is truly disappointing especially considering the buildup.
Working with the textural fragments he inherited from his grandfather, Professor Allen Conrad Kupfer, has managed to piece together the story behind the story that did not begin helsign end with Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
The spotty narrative is padded with footnotes from the author on vampire lore.
The Journal of Professor Abraham Van Helsing
Abrahzm think I have put more time and effort in this review than the author took in writing his book. But there are a couple of things I just can’t overlook. Idario was mention of the evens and references Dracula himself, but for the most part it felt ignored. However, let’s pretend for a while that it was because it’s a fun conceit.
