Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Count Dracula has inspired countless movies, books and plays. But few, if any, have been fully faithful to Bram Stoker's original, best-selling novel of mystery and horror, love and death, sin and redemption. Dracula chronicles the vampire's journey from Transylvania to the nighttime streets of London. There, he searches for the blood of strong men and beautiful women while his enemies plot to rid the world of his frightful power. Today's critics see Dracula as a virtual textbook on Victorian repression of the erotic and fear of female sexuality. In it, Stoker created a new word for terror, a new myth to feed our nightmares and a character who will outlive us all.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The definitive book for vampire fiction 19 mai 2017
Par Max Tomlinson - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The definitive book for vampire fiction is well written but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy read. By today’s standards Dracula is slow to unfold, with long, often tedious sections, including dialogue that doesn’t up the conflict or push the story forward much. The use of diary entries, letters, ships logs etc. to tell the story may give the book an authentic feel and does a good job of keeping the evil ones mysterious but it doesn’t always engage the reader as much as a conventional novel might. But the sinister stuff is exactly that, well drawn and eerie, and stands the test of time. Numerous descriptions of female vampires lovingly detailed as voluptuous creatures of death put to rest any doubt that vampirism was (and is) a metaphor for forbidden sexuality.

“There lay Lucy, seemingly just as we had seen her the night before her funeral. She was, if possible, more radiantly beautiful than ever; and I could not believe that she was dead. The lips were red, nay redder than before; and on the cheeks was a delicate bloom.”

I can’t imagine what it must have been like to read Dracula in 1897.

Bram Stoker was far ahead of his time with this novel.

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.

Overall, this was a really good book. It is a straight up horror novel, which is one of the more interesting aspects about it. Dracula isn't really philosophical and just tries to tell a monster story, which is told through various journal entries, letters, and newspaper clipping.

The first half or so of this is really fantastic and thrilling. However, once Dracula's weaknesses and abilities are explained, the story becomes less interesting, as it becomes less about trying to fight some horrible unknown monsters who can do crazy things and becomes more about trying to kill a boss in a video game, if that makes any sense. One thing that bothered me was Dracula's weakenesses. It's never explained why certain things hurt him, which wouldn't bother me, but there are just so many weird things that harm him. I get that he doesn't like crosses because he's a creature of the devil, but why doesn't he like garlic? Is garlic supposed to be holy? It seems like Stoker randomly picked things that would hurt Dracula.

The scarier and creepier parts of this are definitely the best sections of the book.

I think Dracula ended pretty abruptly, which is something that I'm noticing is a problem with a lot of classics. It just kind of ends without any sense of resolution, in my opinion.

I'm glad I read this, since I do like monsters and horror, but I was kind of underwhelmed by it. It's not bad at all, but I think I was expecting a masterpiece when it is, in fact, flawed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great to read throughout your life - always a profound thrill! 23 juin 2015

I was fifteen when I first read Dracula. My parents refused to give me permission because its was too scary. So I had to sneak it away and read it under the covers at night in secret with a flashlight. I was terrified. I couldn't take the trash out at night or go into the basement alone for a month. One early scene when Dracula crawls down the castle wall head first haunted me and chilled me to the core.

When I was 30 while visiting my parents I saw the same Dracula on the bookshelf. I thought I had been silly to be so frightened and read it again. I was just as frightened! But I got more insight. Instead of simply being carried away by the story I learned more about psychopathology, gender roles, appreciation for education and the "rules" that govern vampires as metaphors for various kinds of evil in this world. The main and recurrent lesson I took then was that Dracula had many weaknesses. The force of his power rested in the fact that no one believed in him. That gave him full access to whatever he wanted (except to enter a home. He had to be invited in before he could visit when he wished.)

At the Nuremberg trials when high ranking Nazis were in the dock, one witness took her time when she got off the stand. She walked slowly passed each defendant and looked carefully at his face. She said she did this because she knew she would never again have the opportunity to see them. Her shock and horror was that they looked like ordinary people. They didn't look like the monsters they were. I have to wonder if the Nazi atrocities and the atrocities that occur today are allowed to build momentum because so many people don't believe those horrors are possible.

This class has given me my third reading of Dracula. Memories of old fears from previous readings came back, but this time I saw more depth in the characters and the story itself. The need for sacred space made me wonder if the vampire and the psychopath are particularly attracted to spiritual innocents among us or are innocents simply more vulnerable to exploitation.

I never noticed until this reading that terriers drove the thousands of rats away from our heroes. I was delighted at this scene. I have three terriers and love them even more now that I know they will charge at Dracula's attempts to overwhelm someone with rats and save the day (or night). :)

I didn't know, until this class, that Bram Stoker was a great friend of Oscar Wilde. Wilde's imprisonment for sodomy was ruinous to the heart and soul of Stoker. Stoker went into a serious retreat and started writing Dracula a month after Wilde went to prison.
I can see the methodical force of evil infiltrating sweet and loving lives in a new way. It must have been Stoker's experience of the oppression and cruelty pressed upon the homosexuality community.

It's a wonder to me that Stoker insists on giving not only Lucy and Mina, but all affected by the vampire contagion a release into kindness and spiritual freedom. I find it amazing that he could include redemption in his story. But maybe granting the possibility of redemption saved his own soul.

Dracula is one of those stories you think you know (or knew) until you actually read the book and truly immerse yourself into the story and characters. Today, vampires and the vampire legend are such a part of our culture, that reading the book is actually less suspenseful that I guess it would have been in the days of its publication when the legend of Count Dracula was either unknown of at least much lesser known. In some ways I am sad that I knew too much going into the reading of this book and in other ways, it was fun to actually see the foreshadowing for what it was and the little hints and clues along the way that Stoker put into the story to tell his readers who and what this Count actually was. All in all, this is a classic piece of literary treasure and one that I believe all should read because the real vampire story is infinitely more intriguing than all the modern vampire drivel that exists and continues to be written today. As in many other things, all the copycat stories that have come about following Bram Stoker's masterpiece are each in their own way inferior to the original.
