  1. 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 but I still cannot get past it5 The Texan would go outside and just randomly shoot things for fun, including things sitting on windowsills of windows in rooms where live people are hanging out, so he [...]

  2. 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.

  3. 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 blood The very idea of a blood drinker inspires the very image of a villain to the mind And that is what the t [...]

  4. 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 Gothic fiction novels to be written It s a work of genius that his presence is felt so strongly in the nov [...]

  5. 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 found most terrifying were Peter Straub s Ghost Story, which is also one of my all time favorites, and Stephen King s Different Seasons Ok the last one isn t that scary but it s my favorite Stephen King book and I had to me [...]

  6. As I expected this one goes straight to the favourites shelf Whether you have read it or not, we all know loosely the story of Dracula Although I assume a lot of people think of it as the bloodthirsty vampire book it definitely is not Have no doubts this is a horror novel but not like those of modern day, the horror here is perceived as much as it is read, simply by the amazing words of Bram Stoker There is no real gore here this is not the Hollywood Dracula, nor is it Buffy the Vampire Slayer o [...]

  7. 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, frightened horses Within a few days of his arrival, Harker will find himself talking of the Count s wicke [...]

  8. 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 yearsd please don t confuse the movie Bram Stoker s Dracula with the actual plot, story, and characters in the book It doesn t remotely resemble the book and the [...]

  9. 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.

  10. 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 watched does this justice Bram Stoker s Dracula might have been a somewhat faithful rendition, but it took unforgivable liberties with the relationship between Mina and Dracula, and downplayed the deep, [...]

  12. Children of the night what music they play Jonathan Hawker hears those chilling, famous words from the inhuman appearing Count Dracula, in the remote Castle Dracula , Transylvania Romania What started out as a simple real estate deal by an English solicitor and a foreign nobleman, becomes a blood sucking nightmare The shell shocked Jonathan is imprisoned by the creepy Count, a person you wouldn t want to see in a dark alley on a moonless midnight walk Three strange , bizarre , but very beautiful [...]

  15. 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 seeing 10 million different Dracula interpretations before the age of 20 o.O So it was fresh and relatively new to me I was surprised by the twists and turns I thought I would be able to reasonably predict the [...]

  16. This was neither as bad as I assumed it would be or nor as good as I eventually started thinking it could be Much as I love receiving real mail, whether it s a letter, present, post card, or even just a book I ordered Shucks, for me Thanks, me , the epistolary form just doesn t generally jiggle my jolly parts This is especially true when a lot of what you re reading is the journals of a bunch of people you d never even want to have passing conversations with, Dr Van Helsing and Dr Seward being o [...]

  17. 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 Dracula has some boxes of dirt I get that you brought Winchester rifles along for protection Each o [...]

  19. I want to suck your blood What an amazing Gothic classic to listen too So, I finally did it I took on the granddaddy of all vampire books I decided to listen to this one instead of reading it due to a great recommendation from a friend on here.Thanks Terry I think this was a great decision to do since the characters in the audio book were excellent, especially Susan Duerden Her voice was beautiful and mesmerizing as Lucy Westenra All the narrators did such a great job with each character.The rea [...]

  21. I turned the first page of this universally loved classic thinking that I was going to plunge into one of the world s best love stories ever written, between Dracula and a lovely lady.Say what Love story BOUAHAHAHAHAHAHA.Right I blame modern TV shows and movies for growing that thought into my mind over the years Oh and this, too view spoiler hide spoiler You re one deceiving cover Dracula is such a romanticized character nowadays that being exposed to his true Bram Stoker style self made me tak [...]

  22. I first read Dracula as a teenager and it had a big effect on me Stoker s suave monster fascinated me and sparked an interest in all things gothic and supernatural After finishing the book for the first time I promptly ditched CS Lewis, bought some kohl eyeliner, decided to dress in black for the foreseeable future and devoted myself to studying Dracula I don t think this book left my side for the following year Good times Looking through my annotated notes in my copy from the 90s, the enthusias [...]

  23. Almost every author will fall into one of two camps the active, and the reactive The active author looks at the world around them and decides to write about what they see They sit down and think I m going to write a story, the subtext of which will provide my analysis of Victorian sexual s They then construct the story around this theme, creating characters to show different aspects and constructing a plot which moves from general observations to specific insights.Then there are the reactive aut [...]

  24. When I talked to my high school English teacher about my experience reading this, and how it compared to the racy Canterbury Tales, she made an erudite and astute observation, Human nature doesn t change This changed the literary landscape of horror writing since Sexual, sensual, creepy and still terrifying today.This review, published in June 2015, is dedicated to a truly great man, Sir Christopher Lee, who passed away in 2015 Sir Christopher portrayed Dracula in the 1958 film Horror of Dracula [...]

  27. FINALLY finished it Assigned reading, in addition to being painfully boring, takes away serious time from The List Anyway, on to the bit where I review the book it wasn t exactly what I was expecting for instance, the whole novel consists of diary entries and letters written by the main characters not Dracula, though , and no one even says the word vampire until page 165 And they re talking about the bats It was genuinely creepy, but the towards the end of the book the pace suddenly overdosed on [...]

  28. As the eerie time of All Hallow s Eve approaches, I felt that it was high time that I finally tackle this novel, which a good friend of mine strongly supported as well Young solicitor Johnathan Harker finds himself travelling through the Hungarian countryside and into Romania, on his way to a castle in the heart of Transylvania There, one Count Dracula awaits Harker and proves to be an odd, yet amenable, host Seeking to finalise a land deal in England, Harker and Dracula talk long into the night [...]

  29. I believe this was my third read of this book, but the only time I ve listened to it on audio This was a full cast performance and it was excellent I highly recommend it to horror fans that dislike reading in epistolary form, the voicing here really brings the diary entries and letters to life Highly recommended for fans of classic horror stories
