    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 research wikipedia but I still cannot get past it5 The Texan would go outside and randomly shoot t


  2. Jonathan Terrington Jonathan Terrington says:

    Dracula the very name instantly brings to mind visions of vampires, stakes, garlic and crucifixes But when one bothers to read the novel they may realise how twisted modern vampire fiction has become.Vampires are not meant to exist as heroes Go back a few hundred years and men believed truly that the vampire was a real immortal, cursed to quench his undying thirst with a living mortal s bl

    I find Victorian horror so interesting because it s a clear reaction to social norms of the time, to the buttoned down and repressed social climate of the time, to the new moral standards of the church and the new questions brought up and hidden away by scientific thought But under the fabric of late Victorian society lay wide ranges of change the increased marriage rate and idea of the domes

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


  5. Matthew Matthew says:

    Two things about this book 1 It is a really great and creepy story that deserves classic status2 Everything is repeated soooooo much without any obvious benefit.Here is actual footage of Bram Stoker writing this novel If Stoker had just got to the point, this book would have been much exciting and suspenseful I understand the exact same mysterious thing happens night after night I understand that


  6. Sean Barrs the Bookdragon Sean Barrs the Bookdragon says:

    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 fiction then Count Dracula is the father of all gothic villains, in spite of it being one of the last Go


  7. Anne Anne says:

    Shockingly, not a whole hell of a lot of vampire stuff up in this bitch.Mostly, it read like a dull travelogue with lots of emotions like bro love flowing around And all the men loved all the women, platonically or otherwise, to the point they were willing to give their lives for whichever lucky lady was getting snacked on by the evil Dracula at the time.It was quite the love fest I m not b


  8. Martine Martine says:

    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 journey through the landscape of gothic horror darkness, howling wolves, flames erupting out of the blue, frighten


  9. Mike (the Paladin) Mike (the Paladin) says:

    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 psychological baggage that has been tacked on over the yearsand please don t confuse the movie Bram Stoker s Dracula with the actu


  10. S.A. Parham S.A. Parham says:

    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 it I kept having to put it aside and read chapters in between other books, but I managed to finish it at last.
