I heard this chapter very late in the night yesterday. Boy, was I scared! But tonight, I wish to hear it again, just to hear Ehren Zeigler once again. Because hearing it once is not enough to truly appreciate this stupendous performance. Hats off!

I am so happy I have found you. It has been truly a joy learning from you. You are the teacher I have always wanted. I am a 45 year old mom of four and I teach preschool art. I LOVE audiobooks. I found you one happy day as I was browsing podcasts. I have dyslexia and literature classes have always been a struggle for me. I always loved classics and had a very hard time following many teachers. You have been a gift. Thanks again.

Comment on Stoker—241: Chapter 21 by Dianna (Hishandmaid on Rav) http://crafting-a-life.com/books/2012/02/03/stoker-241-chapter-21/#comment-2619 Tue, 20 Aug 2013 20:56:08 +0000 http://crafting-a-life.com/books/?p=3773#comment-2619 This is my first Craftlit book, and I’m loving it. I’ve seen the book Dracula, and knew it was a great literary classic, but didn’t take the time to tackle the book as I wanted. I appreciate the literature lessons I’m learning, Heather, much thanks.

As far as Dracula, I’ve not seen any “Dracula” movies, but I’ve heard about him, and always thought of him as a romantic gentleman. This book, especially this chapter has made it clear what a monster he is.

There is so much I can say, but won’t, as a Christian, I don’t want to dig to deep into paralleling biblical references to what Mr. Stoker was really meaning, or “what he might have meant”, I don’t think this is a real, “read between the lines” book, and won’t make abstract observations, like the one that you mentioned about Jonathon and Dracula from an email you got. I’m taking this creepy book at face value, and assuming all that Brahm wanted us to know is really on the pages. I will be listening to many, many more books through you. I’ve said I don’t want to go through another literary classic without you. Thanks again so much for all you do.

Dianna
