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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Origin of a genre December 30, 2013
By Nimrod
Format:Kindle Edition
With so many reviews here on this famous classic, not sure if I can add anything of value, except to say that if you do not enjoy the kind of writing that attempts to emulate accents, then you might want to think twice about this one. That kind of thing is all right in small doses, but here the character of Van Helsing can be just a little irritating with his supposed Dutch-speak version of English that goes on and on (and on). You will, however, learn all about the stock in trade features of all the vampire genre, the red eyes, they teeth, the wolves, the bats etc. This is where a lot of it began, so interesting for that alone. I cannot honestly say, though, that I would want to read anything else by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Classic January 24, 2013
By Steven
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Vampire tales, due their popularity, have become ordinary. Bram Stoker's is far from ordinary; it is the best by far. Well written and still the creepiest vampire story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepiness deserved classic status October 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'd forgotten just how much of this takes place in two countries at once and how Jonathan being alone made the whole thing creepier. A really good read, not jump up scary, but also not a great idea right before bed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow, what an enthralling and entertaining read.
This is an interesting story. I would recommend it for readers over the age of at least fourteen. You will need a dictionary at times. But I really enjoyed the plot.
