Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The vampire novel that started it all, Bram Stoker's Dracula probes deeply into human identity, sanity, and the dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire. When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula purchase a London house, he makes horrifying discoveries about his client. Soon afterward, disturbing incidents unfold in England—an unmanned ship is wrecked at Whitby, strange puncture marks appear on a young woman's neck, and a lunatic asylum inmate raves about the imminent arrival of his "Master"—culminating in a battle of wits between the sinister Count and a determined group of adversaries.

@BleedingGums A damsel is bleeding from her ears and eyes! She’s afraid of the sun! Like a ginger!

We must sort this out. She may be a vampire, but I can’t tell the father. He wonders if her ‘lady times’ are just out of control.

lukas, December 4, 2008 (view all comments by lukas)
As Vampire fever sweeps the country like a swarm of rapid bats, what better time to revisit (or read for the first time) the most influential of all Vampire novels? Written towards the end of the 19th century the Irish-born Bram Stoker's "Dracula" is both an adventurous horror story and a hotbed of Victorian anxieties about sex, death, and foreigners. Composed entirely of letters and diaries, "Dracula" is both startling modern in its approach, but also has the texture and feel of an ancient legend. So put down "Twilight" and rediscover the source that launched so many movies and imitators. It doesn't suck!
