    I was rather disappointed by this classic. It started out with promise, especially the Jonathan Harker bits. Then all the male characters descended into blubbering worshippers of the two female characters, and by the end of the novel, I was wishing Dracula could snack on all of them and be done with...

    'Welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely. And leave something of the happiness you bring!'These are pretty much the first words spoken to Jonathan Harker, one of the heroes of Bram Stoker's Dracula, upon his arrival at Count Dracula's castle in Transylvania, just minutes after a nightmare journe...

    I highly recommend reading this to any fans of the vampire genre. It is a commitment and investment for the reader, but it is worthwhile. While Dracula is not the 1st vampire novel/story, it has firmly established many of the conventions of the vampire genre. I must say that no movie version I have ...

    I believe this may be the edition I read "first". This is an amazing book. I've read reviews by those who disagree and reviews by those who hated the format. But I was swept up in it the first time I read it as a teen and have been every time since. My advice is don't worry about all the psychologic...

    This review can now be seen in a video form here for anyone wondering what I sound or look a little like . Enjoy! Dracula: the very name instantly brings to mind visions of vampires, stakes, garlic and crucifixes. But when I bothered to read the novel I realised, sadly, how twisted modern vampire ...

    No man knows till he experiences it, what it is to feel his own life-blood drawn away into the veins of the woman he loves.This seems to be my first time reading Dracula, and I LOVED IT. I say "seems" because I swear I've read it before. However, that would have been ages ago. Or a byproduct of seei...

    Dracula is, of course, one of the most renowned horror stories, and the most well-known vampire novel. Bram Stoker set the ground rules for what a vampire should be, and set the benchmark for all other writers of the vampire afterwards. Indeed, if tyrannical villains are a necessity of Gothic fictio...

    Managed to finish this :) Second time studying, but first successful read-through.I enjoyed it more this time around, mainly because I actually read the last quarter or so of the book, which was the most enjoyable in my opinion....

    Here are some thoughts on this book.1. I would have been all OVER this in 1897.2. I would like Van Helsing to be quiet. 3. I can suspend disbelief for the vampires but not for the blood transfusions4. I know it was 1897 and blood types weren't discovered until 1901 (according to my very in depth res...

    4.5 Bloodsucking Stars! "Once again... welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring." "I want you to believe... to believe in things that you cannot." I’m not a big scary book fan, but I have been known to read some spooky stuff. Two books that I...
