The novel Dracula is a very interesting and complex. It can open your eyes to the world of science fiction novels. Dracula is an interesting character and you can get a good insight of the issues that were taking place, during the time period the novel was written. Initially, I was really intimidated by the number of pages that were in the novel and thought it wasn’t interesting. I tried to read the novel on train home and would fall a sleep with the novel in my hand. It was a really struggle to read the novel. I created a reading schedule that I never was able to stick with. I had childhood memories of Dracula but one day I decide to research the history of the character Dracula. The information that I obtained was very interesting and it got me to read the novel more.
After a few weeks of reading the novel, I developed a better understanding of the novel. When reading a chapter from the novel, I would look closely at every paragraph. I would ask myself, what is this paragraph trying to say? I then would look for parts that I thought were very important so I could get a better understanding of the reading. I used this technique to help me to better understand the texts. I also annotated by highlighting the text. I analyzed quotes that were thought provoking and tried to connect other texts to the ideas that were being present in the novel. This gave me a chance to look at quotes from many different angles and allowed me to see if there were any correlations between the texts.
