Introduction

During a business visit to Count Dracula's castle in Transylvania, a young English solicitor finds himself at the center of a series of horrifying incidents. Jonathan Harker is attacked by three phantom women, observes the Count's transformation from human to bat form, and discovers puncture wounds on his own neck that seem to have been made by teeth. Harker returns home upon his escape from Dracula's grim fortress, but a friend's strange malady — involving sleepwalking, inexplicable blood loss, and mysterious throat wounds — initiates a frantic vampire hunt. The popularity of Bram Stoker's 1897 horror romance is as deathless as any vampire. Its supernatural appeal has spawned a host of film and stage adaptations, and more than a century after its initial publication, it continues to hold readers spellbound.

Serve Bloody Mary's and rare steak. Keep the lights low, light candles. Play tasteful background organ music.

  "Dracula is a classic, bucket list"by Angie. (see profile) 10/30/16

Consider the year this book was written, how long ago, yet it remains a classic. This is one of the very first writings about vampires--an original idea at the time. Terrifying! And so intriguing a novel... (read more)
