Dear Books Lovers,

The funniest, most realistic and gruesome monster guide has finally arrived in Italy on October 1st 2019 thanks to Mondadori.

So many TV series and so many different films have been made to confuse us mere mortals on how to fight the creatures of the supernatural. From the historical theories new were created, sometimes absurd new ones have been extrapolated. But thanks to Paul Van Loon’s horror handbooks we can finally find out how to protect ourselves from vampires, werewolves, ghosts and all the creatures you can think of.

And Paul Van Loon not only gives us solutions on how to protect ourselves from vampires, on how to become werewolves, on how to recognize witches, but also tells us about the story of these creatures, and in addition he adds a list of the most famous movies, horror or less horror, about all the creatures he talks about in the book.

A very smooth and pleasant reading, for young and old, even if some details in my opinion are not 100% for children, not so much the details on the creatures as the details on how they kill their victims. Despite everything, it is still the perfect book for fans of the genre, and anyone who would like to know more. It is never too late to get updated on how to stay safe from the creatures that populate our world.

And if that’s not enough, the author introduces us to three of the most famous supernatural books in history. Dracula by Bram Stroker, Frankestein by Marie Shelley and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Stephenson. Three books that great readers should not miss, also because Oscar vault from Mondadori group has republished Dracula in a completely new guise that I personally can’t wait to read. Cover on orange and black lacquered pages, what more could you want from a great classic?

Mi chiamo Miriam e sono l'amministratore di Me and Books. Ho tante passioni, ma le più grandi sono la lettura e la scrittura, ed ho creato questo blog proprio per poter condividere le mie passioni. Penso che recensire un libro sia una cosa molto importante che richiede tempo e dedizione. A volte un lettore prima di scegliere un libro vuole sapere che quello che sta scegliendo è quello giusto, e le recensioni servono proprio per questo, per aiutare il lettore a scegliere. Ma questo è anche un modo per aiutare autore e case editrici a farsi conoscere. È anche per questo che pubblico gli articoli sia in italiano che in inglese, per non lasciare nessuno fuori. Vi chiedo di non esitare a pormi qualsiasi domanda sul mondo dell'editoria, spero solo di riuscire a fornire la risposta perfetta.
