Dracula: Heinle Reading Library by Bram Stoker

The punctured throat, the coffin lid slowly opening, the unholy shriek as the stake pierces the heart—these are just a few of the chilling images Bram Stoker unleashed upon the world with his 1897 masterpiece, Dracula. Inspired by the folk legend of nosferatu, the undead, Stoker created a timeless tale of gothic horror and romance that has enthralled and terrified readers ever since.

A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But Dracula also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written — and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition.

I am glad that I picked this up one day on a trip to B&N, I had always wanted to read it. It was a very good book, an interesting read. I liked how the book was written, but the language was hard for me to get through easily.

A wonderful book. However, the archaic style this book is written in (the book was written in the late 1800s) may cause some readers to find this book difficult and as a result also find it boring. Overall, though, this is a good read that can be very scary at times.

Worth reading this classic once. Quite a few typos in the free version.

This book is awesome. Aside from the fact that the old-english is strange, the plot, characters, and writing style is FAN-FREKIN'-TASTIC.

The original vampire story. I loved this book. I have read every vampire book that has ever been written and still find myself going back to Bram Stoker's Dracula.

I thought this book was fab. Much more information than the movie, although I couldn't get Anthony Hopkins voice out of my head as Van Helsing

It is an all time classic and i think that bram stoker was an excelent writer. After reading this book i accually found out there is a real vampire culture who did come on tyra . I have also seen the first dracula movie ( obviously in blach and white) called nosfuratu. If you do your research you csn find many interesting facts about the real dracula who was a military leader and other people in history who did drink blood.

I can really appreciate the classics, and read them often. This started out so strong and then fell apart towards the end. It got really repetitive, and fluctuated between the characters sitting around decided what to do about Dracula, and then telling Mina how she is so beautiful and innocent, then going back to deciding what to do about Dracula. Then the end is so anticlimactic, that I wondered if it was even worth the read. I will say that Bram Stoker does a fantastic job of making Dracula one of the best and most evil villains in literature.

I only read this book because it was a book club choice. I enjoyed it much more then I thought I would. Creepy, chilling characters. However, it went on about 200 pages too long. A good modern day editor would have slashed the manuscript to pieces and we could have ended up with a chilling, enticing, and fast paced read.

Really! You can get this book for free! Just search up in the shop dracula free, and it should pop up!

What is with all these weird reviews people come to the reviews to see if the book is good and worth the money. I honestly donts see what this is about. Anyway the book is very chilling and good. It has its moments but some parts aren't that good.

I felt like I needed to pay homage to the original vampire creator....worth reading but the entire book led up to one single action, was ended up a bit anti-climactic. Interesting format - written in diary and letter format was pretty cool. Worth a shot, but certainly not fast paced.

I read this book years ago, but decided to read again. It is one of the great classics and for good reason. Jonathan and Mina are great heroes. And of course, who can forget Dr. Van Helsing.

I'm a huge Dracula fan but I didnt like this book as much as I thought I would have. I guess I can say I like the movies better.
