Lure of the Vampire A Pop Culture Reference Book of Lists Websites and Very Telling Personal EssaysOf modern living vampires The author has provided fun lists like the Powers of Dracula Real Live Vampire Murders Television Shows and African Americans who have played vampires There are also websites in each section that show the most popular vampire books and even children's shows and books But of the Vampire A Pop MOBI #207 there is a personal twist when it comes to Lure of the Vampire The author has provided personal essays from national and international vampire of the Vampire PDFEPUB #227 authors as well as her I read “Lure of the Vampire” by Bertena Varney The book is basically a survey of everything you could possibly want to know about vampires It has a lot of good information some of it very strange and off the wall However the main sections that had writing from the author had misspellings and incorrect word choice every instead of very for example I am not a huge fan of vampires to start with What really got to me though is that the last section of the book is an about me section in which the author states this will be used as a textbook for a college class that she is teaching She has two masters degrees and she didn’t bother to spell check a noveltextbook that was publishedHowever much the writing style bothered me there was a lot of good and interesting information presented in the book It had information easy to read lists on a multitude of topics related to vampires starting with their history and moving to film and people who believe they are real life vampires It also included essays written by various contributors which had a much polished writing style and a few interviews with various “vampires” of today I believed the information was good due to a very extensive bibliography in the back of the book which did show that a great deal of research had been donePersonally vampires are not my cup of tea and I skimmed over portions of this book however for a true vampire aficionado this would be a great and thought provoking bookI would give it 25 out of 5 stars – good information but it needed some revision before it went to press
