After Twilight, True Blood, Let the Right One In and other modern vampire stories, I was eager to read the original and settle down some facts. It is a true horror story balancing between the ... Read full review

I am really not a fan of vampire fiction but I have to say that this forerunner to the modern craze is quite good. Of course, it helps that Simon Vance narrates. He is amazing at giving the different ... Read full review

If you've only seen Dracula movies, you really have no idea who and what Dracula is. Read the book. Stoker has a deft hand at creepy atmospheres and surreal description. The journal format is ... Read full review

The true original, where it all started and a phenomenon that spawned a generation and more of copy cat stories and movies. Yes of course it is off its age, and the descriptive prose/language can take ... Read full review

I know this is a classic and I appreciate the writing style but I had some struggles getting through it. The speech patterns combined with a foreign language syntax forced me to read several passages ... Read full review

Unlike when I reread Frankenstein a couple years ago, rereading Dracula was like reading it for the first time. Events that I swore were in the book were nowhere to be seen. In fact, from Renfield's ... Read full review

this was a superamazing book! i really loved how descriptive bram stoker was when describing dracula and what he looked like. this really helped me get a picture of him in my head because there are many different ways that dracula is interpreted on the covers of the books. i loved jonathan harker's journal the most, because he was the first one of the "cast" to meet dracula, and since it was my first time reading the book, it was like i was getting a first impression of dracula. that might not make sense to you, but it made sense to me... anyway, i really enjoyed this book, but i thought the middle was a little tiny bit dry, just because not the much was going on. but i think all in all, this was an extremely good book and i would recommend it to a friend.

Ma olen suuresti mõjutatud tänapäeval levinud vampiirisaagadest, olen alati neid huviga jälginud. Kahjuks oli selline "Dracula" mulle uudis. Häbi lausa tunnistada, et kui sattusin nägema kunagi ammu Dracula filmi siis pidasin, seda nii veidraks ja valeks, et ei vaadanud seda lõpuni. Nüüd, kus olen seda teost lugenud saan aru oma eksimusest. Huvitav ülesehitus ning lausa koomiline 19. sajandi kommetest kinni pidamine. Vähemalt mulle on see natuke naljakas. Samas naise seisukohast natuke ka pahaseks tegev. Eriti sellised laused, mis öeldi MIna HArkeri kohta. Näiteks: "Meeste töö/tegu/kohus...."; "NAise aju treenitud nagu mehe aju....) Lihtsalt häiriv on sellisest suhtumisest läbi imbunud teksti lugeda. Samuti see kuidas Draculat alahinnati või pigem alaväristati->lapseaju? Samas oli väga huvitav siis lõpuks ometi seda algset versiooni lugeda. Versiooni, mis oli oma ajast ees. Üldiselt meeldis.
