“One of the 1000 books everyone must read.” The Guardian

“Twilight's anaemic adolescent bloodsuckers look paler than ever next to the primal horror of Stoker's 1897 creation: a ruby-lipped ancient who corrupts the flower of Victorian womanhood, and threatens the heart of the empire itself. “ Lettie Ransley, The Observer

“This is by far the creepiest vampire novel I have read . . . . I found this story to be intriguing and enthralling and I found myself unable to put it down. This is the original vampire novel and, in my opinion, still the best.” Seldombites

DRACULA is THE classic gothic vampire novel in a beautifully presented edition specially designed for kindle. This is Bram Stoker’s masterpiece which will haunt you forever. Read the original 1897 edition, complete, and unabridged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cllassic Vampite Fountainhead 29 Aug. 2013
By Jak
I loved vampire movies in my teens. They had all the trimmings needed for horror movies, and then some, with arcane but inviolable "rules" for vampires (silver bullets, having to spend daylight hours in their native earth, and so on) and none too subtle sexuality .

It was only later that I read Bram Stoker's "Dracula," the 1897 book that is the fountainhead for all the vampire movies (although it was preceded by Le Fanu's 1872 "Carmilla," itself a beautifully written tale of vampires, and female ones at that).

Here's Bram Stoker's classic horror story, a beautifully formatted and illustrated edition of the original text of the all time most influential vampire book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original 25 Sept. 2013

Stoker's classic still remains one of the standards of late 19th Century literature, and if you like authors of the period; it still holds up well and keeps the pages turning...

5.0 out of 5 stars "For the dead travel fast" 16 Nov. 2013
By bernie - Published on Amazon.com
Surprisingly "Denn die Toten reiten schnell" or "For the dead travel fast" is more than an opening line to this tale of love in the dangerous moon light. After watching several Drac movies and a few Nosferatu's, I pretty much though I had a handle on the genera. Little did I know what a wonderful world of mystery and suspense that Bram Stoker opened up for me.

The story is told mostly third party though the papers, diaries, and phonograph recordings (on wax cylinders) of those people involve in a tale so bizarre that it almost defies belief. The general story line is that of a Count that plans to move to a more urban setting (from Borgo Pass to London) where there is a richer diet. There he finds succulent women; something he can sing his teeth in. Unfortunately for him a gang of ruffians (including a real-estate agent, asylum director, Texas cowboy and an Old Dutch abnormal psychologist) is out to detour his nocturnal munching. They think they have Drac on the run but with a wing and a prayer he is always one step ahead.

Of more value to the reader is the rich prose chosen by Stoker as he describes the morals and technology of the time. We have to come to grips with or decide if we can perform the rituals that are required to eliminate vampires verses the impropriety of opening graves and staking loved ones. The powers in the book differ from the movie versions in that they are more of persuasion and capabilities to manipulate the local weather. At one point the Dutch Dr. Van Helsing, is so overwhelmed by a beautiful vampire laying in the grave that he almost for gets why he is there and may become vamp chow.

All in all the story is more in the cunning chase. And the question as to will they succeed or will Dracula triumph. Remember "For the dead travel fast."

My father, who died long ago, said that when he read this book as a teen it scared him so much that he had to sleep with the lights on for months. While I don't have to sleep with the lights on, it is definitely hair-rasing. So well written. The illustrations - at least in this kindle edition - are truly lame, but the story is great. It builds and builds with surprise after scary surprise; what an imagination Stoker had. This is the 3rd time I've read it over decades, and it is still absolutely gripping.
