Editorial Reviews

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

From Library Journal

The Dover volume collects 14 of Stoker's lesser-known horror stories such as "The Crystal Cup," "The Burial of the Rats," and "A Gipsey Prophecy." Though most of his other fiction has been overshadowed by Dracula, these offer some real chills and warrant reading. While editions of Dracula, which celebrated its centennial in 1997, are legion, Broadview's offers several extras, including a chronology of Stoker's life and appendixes on Transylvania, London, Mental Physiology, Reviews and Interviews, and more. That along with the full text make this one of the best editions available, especially at this remarkable price.

Other than those minor things the book is a very smooth read.
Amber Theroux
I don't know that I would say it is a horror book because non of it is super scary but all of it is suspenseful and makes you want to keep reading.
Dierdra Byrd
I recommend Bram Stoker's Dracula to anyone who likes to read horror or mystery books.

I put off reading Dracula for awhile after a friend told me, "It's not at all like the (1931) movie, it's just a bunch of boring journal entries."
How wrong they were. And I'm sorry I waited so long to find that out.
The interweaving of the narratives, sometimes skipping back a day or two to have one character's perspective "catch up" to another's was masterfully done. No sooner is one moment of suspense reached than we switch to someone else's current adventure, and the tension starts building all over again.
Some people think that the book wanders away from the action too much, but I didn't find that to be a problem. The characters and atmosphere are so well written that any "background" information blends well into the plot itself.
The only thing I found that slowed me down a bit was Van Helsing's broken English. However, once I got used to his style of speaking, it wasn't much of a hinderance to the pace.
One aspect of the book that I especially appreciated is the fact that Mina Murray Harker is such a strong character. In the (1931) movie, she mostly looks winsome and cries. In this novel, she's a much bigger part of the action, actively participating in the mission to destroy Count Dracula even as she falls under his spell herself.
I'm glad I finally read this book and had the opportunity to experience "Dracula" as its author intended the story to be told.

The writer slowly takes you away from reality and makes you believe in what you read. Superb narration with comfortable pace. Slowly you get involved in the intrigue and horror.

I find reading classic literature very difficult at times. The language can be very distracting, and I'll have to reread a paragraph several times to understand the exact meaning. This is not so with Bram Stoker's Dracula. This book elicits fear from the very beginning, and holds the readers attention throughout. Modern vampire novels and movies do not hold a candle to the original Dracula.

Im not even going to try and review the story as we all know it or something very close from film. This is a great paperback version at a very good price. The cover painting of Dracs castle is a real plus and selling factor by itself. If you want to read a classic horror story at a good price you cant go wrong with this. Recommended to those that want to read this classic but not spend a lot doing so.

The writing is so vivid, it literally gave me chills, and yet it also isn't overdone. There is just enough left to the imagination to make your imagination run wild. I can certainly understand why it is considered a horror classic. Some of the writing is dated, of course, but it overall remains incredibly strong for a modern reader as well. I really do not know what else to say in a review, especially for a book that virtually everyone knows at least part of the story of, except that this is one classic that certainly shouldn't be passed up. I won't even go into the dreams I had due to the influence of reading the book, but they were certainly interesting. Suffice it to say, it is the first time I have been tempted to sleep with the light on since I was a child, and I'm not the least bit ashamed to admit it.

I recommend Bram Stoker's Dracula to anyone who likes to read horror or mystery books. Dracula has a lot of important characters, including Count Dracula, Mina Murray Harker, Jonathan Harker, Lucy Westenra, Dr. Seward, Dr. Van Helsing, Arthur Holmwood, Quincy Morris, and Renfield, all of whom are very interesting. However, I think the most interesting character is Renfield.

Renfield is a patient at Seward's mental asylum. Renfield has a grotesque habit of eating living creatures, including flies, spiders and birds. He believes that consuming living creatures gives him strength and life.

The book is written variously from a first person point of view from any of its main characters and from parts written like news articles about the strange occurrences happening around the town involving people suffering from unexplained blood loss. I think the way Bram Stoker wrote the book is very difficult to read, but he seems to have mastered the story by making it not too confusing and having all the characters' stories come together in the end.

Dracula is an incredibly atmospheric book. The entire story has a subtle creepy and disturbing theme to it. Dracula is also very detailed; almost every sentence is filled with small details that you may not pay attention to at first, but in the end these details immensely add to the eeriness. While the book was a little slow in the middle, and it is a little difficult to read because it is written in an old, Victorian style, I greatly enjoyed this book and it has become one of my favorites. If you like horror, mystery and paranormal type books, I definitely recommend you buy Dracula.
