The book was a "Bed Book" which meant the print was different. You have to hold the book sideways and read top to bottom. It's suppose to be better to read in bed. Maybe some people would enjoy this but it was very irritating until I got used to it. I don't think it was mentioned anywhere when I purchased the book. But it would have been nice to know!

After all these years of my morbid fascination with vampires, shame on me for never having read this classic. What an extraordinary tale of horror. Vampires are to be feared, not admired as they are nowadays. It wasn't as grim or as raunchy as I expected it to be. Hollywood's movie version slandered it with explicit nudity and abhorrent bestiality. From the first few chapters Bram Stoker expertly sets an eerie impression. The introduction to Count Dracula's castle was the spark of it all. Dracula's greeting "Welcome to my house! Enter freely and of your own free will!" was utterly creepy. Another such comment he made about the wolves howling in the distance "Listen to them--the children of the night. What music they make." Little details like his home being next to a lunatic asylum made it all the more rich with intrigue. The defining scene for me was Jonathan witnessing the Count's descent from his bedroom; "I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window and begin to crawl down the castle wall over the dreadful abyss, face down with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings." The imagery is so vivid. That scene was chilling. I am amazed at Stoker's imagination having created such a unique formidable villain that has stood the test of time. The original vampire in all his glory. It was interesting finding out Dracula's supernatural gifts: the strength of ten men, necromancy, directing the elements such as a storm, fog, and thunder, having command over rats, owls, bats, moths, foxes, and wolves, and finally the ability to transform into a wolf, a bat, or mist. Impressive.

On a tangent, I wondered if the phrase "if looks could kill" originated from this novel?

In my opinion printing the pages of a book sideways and from back to front with the notion that this makes it somehow easier to read in bed is a ridiculous and unnecessary exercise. If Amazon wishes to carry these kinds of useless inventions at least alert your customers on the order site as to the nature of the book that they are paying to have sent to them and then having to pay to return. I am normally thrilled with Amazon's service, but this is a glaring exception.

DRACOOLA.The most famous name in H istory!
DROCUVA....The name that forever is E ternity!
DRAKAHLA..The name is doom for the L iving!
DRACULA..The SCARIEST name in any L anguage!
Dracula is my Fav.HORROR STORY of all time.
The thought of to be immortal is fascinating
and to have the one you love at your side
for eternity is most wanting! I love
the story of Dracula. Yes it has some
SLOW moments especially in the middle,but
really starts off well and ends with a piercing
THUMP!(sic) This is my 100th review and low and
behold it is on OCT. I said to myself that Dracula
would be my 100 on my 13th review and here it is
already. Stories of Vampires,Mummies,Werewolves
and animated bodies have been told for years.
But the one of the man who was once a Voivod
and a protector of his land and defender to
the people of the land. The true Prince and
one of many shadows! Bram Stokers tale of
the CURSED one has had many tellings on film
and from such actors as Max Shrek,Klaus Kinski
Frank Langella,Gary Oldman and Louis Jourdan
who gave a GRAVE performance in the BBC version
plus the most famous names of Lugosi and Lee(No!
not Bruce)so if you do not know the story of the
NO REFLECTOR! PLEASE...Take a bite into this story!
at least sink your teeth into it. It's good enough
to drive you Batty!(o.k.o.k. I'll stop!)I guess
my review is enough to give you HEARTBURN(oh! I did it again)

Format: Hardcover
Surprisingly "Denn die Toten reiten schnell" or "For the dead travel fast" is more than an opening line to this tale of love in the dangerous moon light. After watching several Drac movies and a few Nosferatu's, I pretty much though I had a handle on the genera. Little did I know what a wonderful world of mystery and suspense that Bram Stoker opened up for me.

The story is told mostly third party though the papers, diaries, and phonograph recordings (on wax cylinders) of those people involve in a tale so bizarre that it almost defies belief. The general story line is that of a Count that plans to move to a more urban setting (from Borgo Pass to London) where there is a richer diet. There he finds succulent women; something he can sing his teeth in. Unfortunately for him a gang of ruffians (including a real-estate agent, asylum director, Texas cowboy and an Old Dutch abnormal psychologist) is out to detour his nocturnal munching. They think they have Drac on the run but with a wing and a prayer he is always one step ahead.

Of more value to the reader is the rich prose chosen by Stoker as he describes the morals and technology of the time. We have to come to grips with or decide if we can perform the rituals that are required to eliminate vampires verses the impropriety of opening graves and staking loved ones. The powers in the book differ from the movie versions in that they are more of persuasion and capabilities to manipulate the local weather. At one point the Dutch Dr. Van Helsing, is so overwhelmed by a beautiful vampire laying in the grave that he almost for gets why he is there and may become vamp chow.

All in all the story is more in the cunning chase. And the question as to will they succeed or will Dracula triumph. Remember "For the dead travel fast."
