Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Few characters have seized readers’ imaginations quite like Count Dracula of Transylvania, the hero of Bram Stoker’s classic. The 1897 novel put vampires front and center on the cultural map, providing direct inspiration for an entire subgenre of bloodsucker fiction - including blockbusters like theTwilight series and Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles - and spawning hundreds of movie adaptations!

Stoker’s novel is a thrill ride, following Dracula as he moves from Transylvania to England in search of fresh blood, while a small but dedicated group attempts to thwart him. Want more Stoker? Check out his great-grandnephew Dacre Stoker’s 2018 novel, Dracul.

  • HONESTLY I GET WHY ITS A CLASSIC

    I read this book with my partner and it was so good! It reads as much like a detective novel as a horror story and both are amazingly engaging. I had just a blast with this book, would definitely recommend reading it with a friend :3

    I originally read it in paperback and even though the format was a little hard to follow at times, I loved it. My only main issue was the fact that almost every woman was treated as a delicate flower.
  • Classic, worth a read

    A literary classic. Just a joy to see where Dracula, the vampire, comes from. It’s quite different from many of the movie adaptations. For one, he’s not a sympathetic romantic figure. He’s cruel, cold, and heartless. The only thing that prevents this book from getting 5 stars is that Stoker wasn’t really good at writing accents. So when he’s writing (very minor) characters speaking with a cockney accent, it becomes a chore to get through. Outside of that, I would recommend this book.
  • Stoker’s Dracula novel is amazing!

    Finally read this novel again after many years had passed. I first read through it as a teenager but not sure if I understood what was happening throughout the book. I only wish someone would make a movie or series actually about Stoker’s Dracula and not some director’s interpretation or vision of this amazing horror story. When you read it please take time to absorb what’s happening in real time as each individual shares their accounts of the various events that lead up to the unbelievable climax!

    Finally I’ve read the book. So easy to see why it captured the imagination of readers thru the years. A proper adaptation to film sadly has never been done. Maybe some day a young filmmaker will actually read the book before embarking on writing a script. Stoker’s masterpiece of modern myth making deserves a property adaptation.

    I downloaded it because it was free and I enjoyed it so much, read it all in 3 days! (Which is unusual for me as I get bored easily). Well written, suspenseful, good ending.
