Présentation de l'éditeur

Abraham "Bram" Stoker (8 November 1847 – 20 April 1912) was an Irish novelist and short story writer, best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula. During his lifetime, he was better known as personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned.

In a tale of ancient evil, Bram Stoker creates a world of lurking horrors and bizarre denizens: a demented mesmerist, hellbent on mentally crushing the girl he loves; a gigantic kite raised to rid the land of an unnatural infestation of birds, and which receives strange commands along its string; and all the while, the great white worm slithers below, seeking its next victim... Bram Stoker, creator of Dracula, is one of the most enduring and masterful influences on the literature of terror.

Biographie de l'auteur

Bram Stoker was an invalid as a child but later excelled as an athlete. After a stint in the Civil Service, he worked as the business manager of a theatre in London. He had the opportunity to meet many famous actors and to travel the world.Stoker wrote many novels and stories, most of which were well-reviewed when they were first published, but Dracula has exceeded the others in popularity. Like its famous villain, Dracula refuses to grow old, feeding off each new fad in popular culture.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Abridged version 16 mai 2011

I read the free Kindle edition of this book. I was shocked at how terrible it was -- the story seemed disjointed and ludicrous (even for a story about a giant white worm that can assume human form). Then I discovered that this version is an abridged and rewritten 1925 edition that eliminated over 100 pages from the book. I will now seek out the unabridged version to see if it is any better.

The Ken Russell movie version is terrible and wonderful at the same time. I think it may be the most bizarre movie I have ever seen.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Unintentionally hilarious. 23 octobre 2010
Par Pastrychef - Publié sur Amazon.com

Had heard this book is terrible and it is. There are the germs of at least three excellent horror books in there...unfortunately Bram couldn't decide which to focus on and jumped wildly from one idea to the other. Is it about the mysterious curse haunting the last scion of a noble family, a la Hound of the Baskervilles? Or perhaps the evil power of mesmerism? A titanic battle of wills between a strong minded woman and an evil interloper for the soul of her sister? Or is it a straight out find-and-kill-the-monster romp? You decide!

The unfocused storyline, wild leaps of (il)logic, gaping plot holes and purple prose made this the funniest book I've read for some time. If you liked Shaun of the Dead, you'll probably find this hilarious. The ending is pure gold - I can't decide whether Michael Bay or Monty Python would do a better movie adaptation of it.

Definitely worth what I paid for it.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Well...it was free 5 décembre 2009

Although a bit strange I found this book to be entertaining. It follows Adam as he battles the mysterious Lady Arabella, falls in love with Mimi, And encounters an assortment of odd characters. Not as good as Dracula, but if you can handle the far-fetched plot I would recommend it. Also, It is free.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Brief gothic horror 19 juin 2011
Par wiredweird - Publié sur Amazon.com

Well, not all that horrible, mostly. Stoker's most famous work, Dracula, centers on a character half of this world and half of another. Here, the White Worm shares that dual nature, but the connection between two natures remains elusive. Then there's the unbreachable split between two dark forces, something that mere mortals can only approach with legal documents and high explosives.

Although the dark mood and sense of vast, unseen forces comes through clearly, more reamins to the imagination than in fact becomes explicit. This might suit readers with the most vivid imaginations, but might not wholly satisfy readers who like more substantial handholds on a story. Like me, for example.

But the worm got fat an' grewed an' grewed, An' grewed an aaful size; He'd greet big teeth, a greet big gob, An greet big goggly eyes. - C M Leumane, The Lambton Worm (1867)

Bram Stoker, Irish author of the immortal classic Dracula, wrote The Lair of the White Worm a year before his death in 1912. also known as The Garden of Evil, it was published in 1911 by Rider and Son in the United Kingdom.
this novel is certainly one of the strangest and weirdest books i have ever read. most of the characters are downright eccentric and appear to be preoccupied with their own bizarre pursuits. some scenes are quite disjointed and if it was Stoker's intention to make them surreal and nightmarish, he did manage so but only to a certain extent.
there were "exciting" moments especially in the last few pages but overall, the story leaves much to be desired. somehow, the idea of a primeval creature existing in 1860 Derbyshire and wreaking terror miserably failed to stir my imagination and to deliver the chills and thrills that i was expecting.
