    Almost every author will fall into one of two camps: the active, and the reactive. The active author looks at the world around them and decides to write about what they see. They sit down and think: "I'm going to write a story, the subtext of which will provide my analysis of Victorian...

    FINALLY finished it. Assigned reading, in addition to being painfully boring, takes away serious time from The List. Anyway, on to the bit where I review the book: it wasn't exactly what I was expecting (for instance, the whole novel consists of diary entries and letters written by...

    I was rather disappointed by this classic. It started out with promise, especially the Jonathan Harker bits. Then all the male characters descended into blubbering worshippers of the two female characters, and by the end of the novel, I was wishing Dracula could snack on all of them an...

    'Welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely. And leave something of the happiness you bring!' These are pretty much the first words spoken to Jonathan Harker, one of the heroes of Bram Stoker's Dracula, upon his arrival at Count Dracula's castle in Transylvania, just minutes after ...

    If I was Bram Stoker I?d remake the old Melanie hit ? remember this one? Look what they done to my song, ma look what they done to my song well it's the only thing that I could do half right and it's turning out all wrong ma look what they done to my song Which the C...

    I highly recommend reading this to any fans of the vampire genre. It is a commitment and investment for the reader, but it is worthwhile. While Dracula is not the 1st vampire novel/story, it has firmly established many of the conventions of the vampire genre. I must say that no movie v...

    I believe this may be the edition I read "first". This is an amazing book. I've read reviews by those who disagree and reviews by those who hated the format. But I was swept up in it the first time I read it as a teen and have been every time since. My advice is don't worry about a...

    This was neither as bad as I assumed it would be or (nor?) as good as I eventually started thinking it could be. Much as I love receiving real mail, whether it's a letter, present, post card, or even just a book I ordered (Shucks, for me? Thanks, me!), the epistolary form just doesn't ...

    When I talked to my high school English teacher about my experience reading this, and how it compared to the racy Canterbury Tales, she made an erudite and astute observation, "Human nature doesn't change". This changed the literary landscape of horror writing since. Sexual, sensua...

    Managed to finish this :) Second time studying, but first successful read-through. I enjoyed it more this time around, mainly because I actually read the last quarter or so of the book, which was the most enjoyable in my opinion. ...

    As the eerie time of All Hallow?s Eve approaches, I felt that it was high time that I finally tackle this novel, which a good friend of mine strongly supported as well. Young solicitor Johnathan Harker finds himself travelling through the Hungarian countryside and into Romania, on hi...

    Dracula: the very name instantly brings to mind visions of vampires, stakes, garlic and crucifixes. But when one bothers to read the novel they may realise how twisted modern vampire fiction has become. Vampires are not meant to exist as heroes. Go back a few hundred years and men b...

    I believe this was my third read of this book, but the only time I've listened to it on audio. This was a full cast performance and it was excellent. I highly recommend it to horror fans that dislike reading in epistolary form, the voicing here really brings the diary entries and lette...

    Here are some thoughts on this book. 1. I would have been all OVER this in 1897. 2. I would like Van Helsing to be quiet. 3. I can suspend disbelief for the vampires but not for the blood transfusions 4. I know it was 1897 and blood types weren't discovered until 1901 (according t...

    Two things about this book: 1. It is a really great and creepy story that deserves classic status 2. Everything is repeated soooooo much without any obvious benefit. Here is actual footage of Bram Stoker writing this novel: If Stoker had just got to the point, this book w...

    No man knows till he experiences it, what it is to feel his own life-blood drawn away into the veins of the woman he loves. This seems to be my first time reading Dracula, and I LOVED IT. I say "seems" because I swear I've read it before. However, that would have been ages ago. Or a...

    Dracula is, of course, one of the most renowned horror stories, and the most well-known vampire novel. Bram Stoker set the ground rules for what a vampire should be, and set the benchmark for all other writers of the vampire afterwards. Indeed, if tyrannical villains are a necessity of...

    As I expected this one goes straight to the favourites shelf!! Whether you have read it or not, we all know loosely the story of Dracula. Although I assume a lot of people think of it as the bloodthirsty vampire book it definitely is not. Have no doubts this is a horror novel but no...
