Dracula Bram Stoker Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
An Apple Books Classic edition.
Few characters have seized readers’ imaginations quite like Count Dracula of Transylvania, the hero of Bram Stoker’s classic. The 1897 novel put vampires front and center on the cultural map, providing direct inspiration for an entire subgenre of bloodsucker fiction - including blockbusters like theTwilight series and Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles - and spawning hundreds of movie adaptations!
Stoker’s novel is a thrill ride, following Dracula as he moves from Transylvania to England in search of fresh blood, while a small but dedicated group attempts to thwart him. Want more Stoker? Check out his great-grandnephew Dacre Stoker’s 2018 novel, Dracul.

Finally I’ve read the book. So easy to see why it captured the imagination of readers thru the years. A proper adaptation to film sadly has never been done. Maybe some day a young filmmaker will actually read the book before embarking on writing a script. Stoker’s masterpiece of modern myth making deserves a property adaptation.
I like this.

Great book to read. A little hard to follow at first but you get the hang of it and it stays interesting
Classic worth a read
A literary classic. Just a joy to see where Dracula, the vampire comes from. It’s quite different from many of the movie adaptations. For one, he’s not a sympathetic romantic figure. He’s cruel, cold, and heartless. The only thing that prevents this book from getting 5 stars is that Stoker wasn’t really good at writing accents. So when he’s writing (very minor) characters speaking with a cockney accent, it becomes a chore to get through. Outside of that, I would recommend this book.
Surprisingly a much greater read than expected!
I downloaded it because it was free and I enjoyed it so much, read it all in 3 days! (Which is unusual for me as I get bored easily). Well written, suspenseful, good ending.
