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.

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 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.

Awesome. Way better than twilight.

One could say so much about a book like this. But one word might just sum it all up, Classic. Not classic as in boring and just old, but Classic as in when your done reading it you will want to go back and read it again. For me when i was getting towards the end i was getting mad because i didn't want the book to be over, you just want more action and more of the suspense. This is By far a Classic, and a must have for anybody from any background. Go out and buy this book, and read it. YOU'LL LOVE IT.

What can I say about Dracula that hasn't already been said. It did bring something out that has been bugging me alot lately. You can write a great book without all the language and violence. Yes there is violence in Dracula (how can you not have it in a book about vampires) but it isn't the main focus. I listened to this book on audio ( a freebie I got from Audible) and really enjoyed it. I probably wouldn't have read it otherwise. It is a classic worth giving a try, read like a pretty modern story

I enjoyed this book a lot, although as usual with epistolary novels there was some odd moments as characters are forced to over-explain their actions. Overall, very enjoyable, lots of twists and turns and engaging characters.

I think the first 50 pages or so of this novel are some of the best ever written. Harker's naive excitement about his first big assignment quickly turns to horror. The rest of the story continues the spooky vibe, which I think is actually enhanced by the detachment introduced by the storytelling convention of revealing events through the journals and letters of the main characters.

Even 100 years later this book is creepy. I was surprised that the essence of evil could be so obvious when the Count himself didn¿t do much talking. The entire novel is from the perspective of the hunters; Harker, Van Helsing, Dr. Seward, Arthur, Mina, the Texan guy and Elizabeth. From their reactions to events I get the sense of horror and evil. Some of the journal entries (which is how the story is told) sound a little false, but maybe people really did talk and act like that 100 years ago. The sense of real tragedy over a person¿s death struck me as well. Now a days, one death isn¿t so big of a deal since the earth¿s population has quadrupled (or more) since that time

Reading this is like stepping back in time, both because of the setting of the story and because of the style and pace of the writing. It is a story of suspense, but told in a much quieter, calmer fashion than modern horror stories.Dracula is told as a series of journal entries, which takes some suspension of disbelief beyond the acceptance of vampires. Although the journals belong to several different characters, there is little noticeable difference in "voice," and the level of detail in meticulous and exact. The pace is often slow, but the story is complelling and intriguing, and well worth the read, if only for the historical significance.

i'd heard about the myth. never got soaked in the story... read the book in 7th grade and it felt difficult...as an adult i've re-read it and came to appreciate the language and the tale...

This book surprised me. Its different than what you think. I'd recommend this book to anyone.
sweetsarah on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
this is probably one of my most favorite books ever. i loved how Jonathan Harker had to deal with and try and figure out who the count really was. the part about Dracula taking the blood of the innocent and virgins was a little creepy but other than that it was and still is one of my favorite books.

I have the Barnes and Noble edition with illustrations by Edward Gorey, which is worth picking up even if you have a copy already. The illustrations are definitely my favorite thing about the book.Dracula's difficult to review, because it is well written, and it is creepy, but it pales next to modern horror. In a certain light, it's thanks to Dracula that these modern books can be so scary, because Stoker was leading the charge. It is still genuinely scary in places, though.
