New sale record for “The Lost Bible” in Romania
“The Lost Bible” by Igor Bergler set a new sake record, 3,200 copies of the book being sold in the first weekend after its release. The book had set a preorder sale record for the Romanian book market, with 10,000 copies being sold following online orders.
The book was released on October 1 and enjoyed a tremendous marketing campaign, having exclusive stalls and striking show cases.
“The Lost Bible” is a “thoroughly well-informed” book revealing ‘the real reasons that turned Vlad the Impaler to Dracula.’
The book translated in English by Jean Harris tells the story of professor Charles Baker who comes in the town where Dracula was born to officially attend a conference of the most renowned historians in the world. Unofficially, the aim of his presence in the heart of Transylvania is to clear up a mystery having deep roots in his family’s history. Yet, three macabre crimes changes his action plan, and the professor finds himself in the middle of a worldwide conspiracy in progress for more than half of millennium.
The members of the organization are controlling financial, media markets, as well as the most important industries in the country. They are surveying the Internet and the social media networks and pulling the strings of all governments in the world. The only thing that could stop them is the truth hidden by Dracula in the “Gutenberg’s Bible”.
One of the most controversial personalities of the Eastern Europe, Vlad the Impaler has financed an ambitious project that will change the interface of the entire world: multiplication of a message which was meant to be decoded only by certain insiders. In 1455, the code is hidden in the first ever print work-“The Bible B42”, also known as the “Gutenberg’s Bible”. As Charles Baker is tracking down his family’s history, he is disclosing a terrifying image of a confused world where propaganda is not a war exclusive, but has subtly insinuated into the day-to day life of every permanent connected or not connected Internet user.
Igor Bergler has studied film production at the Ecological University in Bucharest and also audiovisual communication at the Academy of Theatre and Film in Bucharest. He signed seven short films, two medium films and two feature films, as director and scriptwriter.
