Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Dracula is one of the few horror books to be honored by inclusion in the Norton Critical Edition series. (The others are Frankenstein, The Turn of the Screw, Heart of Darkness, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and The Metamorphosis.) This 100th-anniversary edition includes not only the complete authoritative text of the novel with illuminating footnotes, but also four contextual essays, five reviews from the time of publication, five articles on dramatic and film variations, and seven selections from literary and academic criticism. Nina Auerbach of the University of Pennsylvania (author of Our Vampires, Ourselves) and horror scholar David J. Skal (author of Hollywood Gothic, The Monster Show, and Screams of Reason) are the editors of the volume. Especially fascinating are excerpts from materials that Bram Stoker consulted in his research for the book, and his working papers over the several years he was composing it. The selection of criticism includes essays on how Dracula deals with female sexuality, gender inversion, homoerotic elements, and Victorian fears of "reverse colonization" by politically turbulent Transylvania.

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up?A naive young Englishman travels to Transylvania to do business with a client, Count Dracula. After showing his true and terrifying colors, Dracula boards a ship for England in search of new, fresh blood. Unexplained disasters begin to occur in the streets of London before the mystery and the evil doer are finally put to rest. Told in a series of news reports from eyewitness observers to writers of personal diaries, this has a ring of believability that counterbalances nicely with Dracula's too-macabre-to-be-true exploits. An array of voices from talented actors makes for interesting variety. The generous use of sound effects, from train whistles to creaking doors, adds further atmosphere. Lovers of mysteries and horror will find rousing entertainment in this version of a classic tale.?Carol Katz, Harrison Public Library, NY

5.0 out of 5 stars THE original - great read December 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of my all-time favorite books. There are scenes in this book that send chills up my spine. Unlike the new "vampire" books/movies, you won't find multiple pages devoted to the color & gleam of the Counts' eyes. There is no teenage angst in one single paragraph! It's the original AND it's perfect for the grown-up, grown-past the bubblegum.

3.0 out of 5 stars Vaguely enjoyable November 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this to be, at times an engaging read, but, by the same token, at other times, quite tedious and cumbersome. Bram Stoker's descriptive writing is incredible, however, at times when dipping in during an entry by a character, it was nigh on impossible to decipher which character you were reading from because of a lack of differing registers amongst the characters.

All in all, it was enjoyable, but I would advise caution to readers that are easily lost and would have trouble with the older style of language used.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 if I could! December 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very suspenseful and hard to put down at points. Ending dragged on a bit and there were some parts I don't feel were explained enough (such as how Jonathan Harker escapes Castle Dracula at the beginning.) But over all, very good and I can see why it's considered a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic. MUST READ!! January 3, 2014
By Lawu2h
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm so glad that I read this book. It is such a classic and such a good read, especially if you are a fan of vampires. It was nice to see where the original vampire image came from. It was filled with suspense and gothic horror. Plus a lot of jokes can be had by Dracula's slight gayness (who am I kidding, huge gayness haha) One suggestion I have is to get an audiobook version if you struggle with complicated vocabulary and if you have to read it as an assignment. AWESOME ASS BOOK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great classic gothic novel September 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Took about a week to read-in any moments I could spare-well worth it! I was not expecting a book written so long ago to be this hard to put down.    good read if you like scarey tales with plenty of description and atmosphere woven into the narrative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece November 21, 2013
By Scorpio
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having set upon myself the task of reading or rereading a classic piece of literature in between each new release I have once again discovered the masterpiece that is Dracula. Although it has been 30 years since I first read it, it still had me captivated the whole journey through.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dracula October 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the old style of writing in the Bram Stokers, Dracula. So much is left to the imagination that sitting under my Oak tree in the fall, you can actually feel the scenes and settings described. So much better than the new versions.

A little bit difficult to read at parts due to the old language, but otherwise a very gripping story, more thriller than horror.

Classical tale of horror from Irish author Bram Stoker. The original tale of a vampire and the bravery of those who have chosen to battle him to whatever end.

I was so surprised at how easily this old book moved along. The writing seldom got in the way of the tale as it does in some other books of this age.
