A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But Dracula also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written -- and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition. Pocket Books Enriched Classics present the great works of world literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. This edition of Dracula was prepared by Joseph Valente, Professor of English at the University of Illinois and the author of Dracula's Crypt: Bram Stoker, Irishness, and the Question of Blood, who provides insight into the racial connotations of this enduring masterpiece.

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

~*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...
