Présentation de l'éditeur

Dracula is the ultimate horror story, producing one of literature’s most lasting villains: Count Dracula. A harrowing, memorable, and enduring story about the world’s most famous vampire.

A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But Dracula also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written—and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition.

I find it difficult to imagine that anyone reading this review does not already know the essential story and fame of Bram Stoker's classic vampire novel, "Dracula," so I will not insult your intelligence or waste your time by rehashing its plot. Suffice it to say this book is comfortably old-fashioned and unnervingly creepy, not the first vampire novel, but in many ways the definitive one. But several things should be noted. (1) The Dracula depicted in the book is somewhat different from the classic Bela Lugosi portrayal in the flick which most (or at least, many) people who have not yet read the book have probably seen. The story differs, too, so as you read be prepared for a new experience. (2) The entire book is told through a series of journal entries and letters which may seem disjointed at first. This epistolary style of storytelling may not initially appeal to some modern readers, and the transition from Harker's truly horrific journal to the first letter (Mina to Lucy) may seem stylistically jarring and a bit of a let-down; bear with it, and the story will get good again. (3) This ebook edition, a "Pocket Book" reprint by Simon and Schuster, is particularly well-formatted and a pleasure to read. As a freebie, it is well worth the price of nada. However, inasmuch as there is no commentary or explanatory material added to the basic text, should this particular edition ever cease to be free, the previous no-cost public domain version (also available in the Kindle Store) is essentially just as good. If you enjoy "Dracula" and want to read more novels and short stories by Bram Stoker, I recommend "The Complete Collection of Bram Stoker" published as an ebook by Di Lernia Publisher and costing a mere $.99. Nothing else by Stoker manages to create the same total atmosphere of horror as "Dracula," but both "The Jewel of Seven Stars" and "The Lair of the White Worm" (though neither is its equal) come close.

Surprisingly "Denn die Toten reiten schnell" or "For the dead travel fast" is more than an opening line to this tale of love in the dangerous moon light. After watching several Drac movies and a few Nosferatu's, I pretty much though I had a handle on the genera. Little did I know what a wonderful world of mystery and suspense that Bram Stoker opened up for me.

The story is told mostly third party though the papers, diaries, and phonograph recordings (on wax cylinders) of those people involve in a tale so bizarre that it almost defies belief. The general story line is that of a Count that plans to move to a more urban setting (from Borgo Pass to London) where there is a richer diet. There he finds succulent women; something he can sing his teeth in. Unfortunately for him a gang of ruffians (including a real-estate agent, asylum director, Texas cowboy and an Old Dutch abnormal psychologist) is out to detour his nocturnal munching. They think they have Drac on the run but with a wing and a prayer he is always one step ahead.

Of more value to the reader is the rich prose chosen by Stoker as he describes the morals and technology of the time. We have to come to grips with or decide if we can perform the rituals that are required to eliminate vampires verses the impropriety of opening graves and staking loved ones. The powers in the book differ from the movie versions in that they are more of persuasion and capabilities to manipulate the local weather. At one point the Dutch Dr. Van Helsing, is so overwhelmed by a beautiful vampire laying in the grave that he almost for gets why he is there and may become vamp chow.

All in all the story is more in the cunning chase. And the question as to will they succeed or will Dracula triumph. Remember "For the dead travel fast."

What a way to start off this October's spook-tacular reads! I've started a tradition a couple of years ago wherein I plan to read every literary horrifying classic ever written. Surprisingly, Dracula never made it on my list, or rather, it made my list, I just never got around to actually reading it. Welp...I'm happy to say I finally took the plunge (no pun intended) and sunk my teeth into this awesome classic.

As usual, Hollywood never ever gets it right. Out of all the Dracula movies I've watched, none truly measure up or comes close to what Bram Stoker actually wrote. This story made the hairs on my neck and arms stand up! And what I also found captivating about this story is how it sort of took on a poetic prose at times. Bram was able to weave several characters' journals together, which at first, I found a bit confusing, until their accounts of what was happening began to add up. Once I realized what was actually happening, I just couldn't get enough.

I'm so glad I saved many of the classics to read for later on in life. It has been a joy to read this novel. I was also surprised to find out how many pages this novel actually is, but it was so good and hard to put down, I didn't really notice nor care. Outstanding story of the Un-Dead come to life!

And what really tickles me is to think this novel was written in the late 1800s and here in 2014, this story is still and will forever be timeless! Dracula may have died in the pages, but his story will always live on! This is why I love reading and why I have a fascination with authors! It's what we do!

I reread Bram Stoker's Dracula after many years. My original assessment (in high school) was that you should read the 1st 4 chapters and the last 4 chapters and skip the rest. Now 40 years later I enjoyed the entire book, as much as a window on society at the turn of the last century, as for the story. I had never realized how much Stoker had emphasized the modernity of his society. He name drops Kodak cameras and telegraphs seem so common and efficient it's almost like texting. This only serves to heighten the realization that all our science and modern understanding is helpless against the ancient evil that is Dracula. The "brave" men and their futile efforts to protect their women are so ridiculous I wonder if this was intentional satire on the attitudes of the day. I still think no movie has ever quite captured the simultaneous weirdness, horror, loneliness and tragedy of this evil creature. Much of the power of the narrative comes from the fact that the power of God ultimately is what saves them. If you've never read this book, don't think you've learned anything from movies or other vampire traditions. This story is unique and in its own way, beautiful.

Unabbreviated, Unearthly, Uncommonly good formatting! Perfect tome (and tomb) for the Halloween season, and so much more readable than "Frankenstein" (largely the result of the modernization of the English language over a span of 80 years). What makes this book unique is the eerie cover art by 30-year career artist Peter Fiore whom last offered his talent to illustrate a book some 10 years ago. While this is one of the freshest versions available, there are nearly 3 dozen other inexpensive kindle versions to choose from so do make it a point to acquire one to suit your taste this holiday season, but please be certain to get yourself an unabridged copy like this one so that it will be good to the last drop (of blood, haha).

I'll be concentrating on reviewing Halloween themed book thru the month of October for the second year running so feel free to "see all my reviews" most recently if you're of a like mind and am looking for some spooky stuff this time of year.
