5.0 out of 5 stars Eloquent Writing and a Great Story 10 Aug 2014
By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Having re-read some of the "classics," I have found that the writing style of many of them seems old fashioned and stilted to the reader. Nothing could be further from the truth with Bram Stoker's much read and exploited novel, Dracula. The writing style flows freely from the page, and stands comparison with many of today's best novels.

The story really needs no additions from me, but for those who need a refresher the book starts with a young man, Jonathan Harker, a solicitor from Devon making a solo journey into the Carpathian mountains in Central Europe to meet with an important client. The client being Count Dracula himself. The trip is to finalise and inform Dracula of property purchases he has made in England. While he is travelling the young man is writing a journal of the events and people he encounters, and it is not long before he begins to have serious doubts about his own safety. When he arrives at Castle Dracula his worst fears begin to manifest themselves.

The Collector's Library do a first rate job of these in the main unabridged editions of Classic Literature. The bindings are robust, but luxurious and are protected by an illustrated dust cover, and the gilt edged pages are a luxury from a bygone age. The integral ribbon bookmark is also a nice touch and the books are genuinely pocket sized and can be taken virtually anywhere, an appealing quality for an avid reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book 26 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
As far as the story line goes you've seen some of the films you must have some idea. This book is sad and full of tension. It's stood the test of time. The binding is a nice durable Hardback. It's durable and the print quality is much better than the various 1.50 classics around. It is however a small book so don't buy it for large print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dracula 6 April 2011
By Gareth
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The collector Library Books are of exquisite quality and I personally find that despite there short size and for every one who wants to know they are about 8" high and about 4" wide, literally there is nowhere on the internet that actually tells you the correct measurement, but anyway the book written by Bram Stoker is a perfect marvel of English literature and I insist that any lover of Gothic Literature buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 3 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Few novels have been as imitated (often as parodies) as Dracula. When I finally got around to reading "the original" of the story which we all think we know, I was very pleasantly surprised to find out just how very good it is. It is literary in quality, while at the same time being very readable - the story romps along. The style is really intersting - its all told in the form of diary fragments of the different characters. Of particular interest are the female characters who, while the principal victims of the Count, are far from the feeble wall flowers we see so often in the parodied versions. They're intelligent proactive women - quite remarkably (allowed to be portrayed) so for 1897. The Collector's Library edition is really beautiful - small hardbacked, thin paper, clear print, gilded edge and ribbon. A treat to carry around in your pocket, and well worth the very small additional cost (currently cheaper than the more expensive paper back editions!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking 21 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had to read this book for a review and comparison reason, but came out of the book wishing there had been more. I have never seen the films but obviously heard of and seen adaptions of the character. However this original couldn't chill you more, you feel every word hit the very core of your bones. Just astounding is the word. So well written and so bloodthirsty. (pun meant!) Definatly read whether or not you are into this genre of book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic gothic horror 14 Mar 2012
By jamie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a haunting, eloquently told horror story. Despite being written over a hundred years ago, this story still stands the test of time. It maybe doesn't have the grotesque blood curdling gore of "Let the Right One in" or the capricious, sardonic dark humour of "Salem's Lot" but it still deserves the premium title of the best Vampire story ever told. The original and still for me, the best!
