Dracula, by Bram Stoker, is part of the Barnes & Noble Classics series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes & Noble Classics: New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars Biographies of the authors Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events Footnotes and endnotes Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work Comments by other famous authors Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations Bibliographies for further reading Indices & Glossaries, when appropriateAll editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Count Dracula has inspired countless movies, books, and plays. But few, if any, have been fully faithful to Bram Stoker's original, best-selling novel of mystery and horror, love and death, sin and redemption. Dracula chronicles the vampire's journey from Transylvania to the nighttime streets of London. There, he searches for the blood of strong men and beautiful women while his enemies plot to rid the world of his frightful power.Today's critics see Dracula as a virtual textbook on Victorian repression of the erotic and fear of female sexuality. In it, Stoker created a new word for terror, a new myth to feed our nightmares, and a character who will outlive us all. Brooke Allen is a book critic whose work has appeared in numerous publications including The Atlantic Monthly, The New Criterion, The New York Times Book Review, The Wall Street Journal, and The Hudson Review. A collection of her essays, Twentieth-Century Attitudes, will be published in 2003.

4.0 Dracula: The Modern Prometheus
Dracula: The Modern Prometheus is a retelling of both Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Bram Stroker's Dracula with a few new twists by Rafael Chandler. I'm not going to spend time describing the story here because if you've read Frankenstein and Dracula you already know it. The reason you would want ...

Good book, enjoyable, but I think the other vampire series have ruined it for me.

4.0 Dracula
~*Full review on The Bent Bookworm!*~Narration:The narrators for this Audible Editions version were fabulous. Each character has their own narrator for their various journal entries, letters, etc., and they were all easily distinguished from each other. I listened at 1.25% speed, which helped with t...

3.5 Furioser Start des Horrorromans, der mit der Zeit an zunehmenden Blutverlust leidet
Was mich zu Beginn und bis mehr als zur Hälfte des Romans noch restlos begeistert hat - nämlich die innnovative stilistische Tagebuchform und die unterschiedlichen Erzählperspektiven der handelnden Personen, die alle Aufzeichnungen führen - wurde schlussendlich zum größten Ärgernisfaktor in diesem a...

3.5 Dracula by Bram Stoker (audiobook)
Narrators: Alan Cumming, Tim Curry, & full cast I’m done! I’m not sure what to say about it though. I am glad to have read, or listened to, this classic, but I think I’ll need to reread it in print at some point. The performances of the cast were quite good, although I’m not sure how well this boo...
