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.

 
Brooke Allen is a book critic whose work has appeared in numerous publications including The Atlantic Monthly, The New Criterion, The New York Times Book Review, The Wall Street Journal, and The Hudson Review. A collection of her essays, Twentieth-Century Attitudes, will be published in 2003.

Dana Welcker, April 2, 2014 (view all comments by Dana Welcker)
This book is not at all what I was expecting, it is so much more. I love vampire stories and movies so I made up my mind to read the original. This is not a gory or excessively violent book. In some parts it is a tender love story while other parts it is the battle of man vs. evil. It is told tenderly and intelligently and keeps the reader engaged. No Dracula movie I have ever seen has followed the book. I even received a pleasant shock in the first few pages when a present day brand name was mentioned!
