With the popularity of vampires in today's culture, it is no surprise that there has been renewed interest in Bram Stoker's "Dracula". This outstanding audiobook, regaling the horror spread by Count Dracula, is read by an outstanding cast of narrators including Alan Cumming and Tim Curry. This tale of the evil vampire, who tries to move from his home in Transylvania to England, is told in the way Bram Stoker originally wrote the novel. The men and women who seek to destroy the vampire, led by Dr. Van Helsing, tell the story through diary entries, clippings from newspapers and letters.

Dracula was not the first vampire to be written about, but is the first to have given rise to the numerous films, books and television programs centered on these blood-sucking beasts. The count hires Jonathan Harker to provide him with legal assistance in respect to a real estate deal. During his stay in the Transylvanian castle, Harker at first succumbs to the vampire's charm. Eventually he realizes that all is not right within the fortress, and after a harrowing experience with the castle's other resident vampires, manages to escape back to his homeland. The vampire also makes his way to England and embarks on a gruesome mission to turn selected women into vampires. Van Helsing, Harker and a group of friends work at tracking down and destroying the monster.

Bram Stoker, born in Ireland in 1847, wrote a number of books centered on vampires. However, Dracula earned the highest literary praise and created the most dread in the hearts of its fans. A manager at the renowned Lyceum Theatre in London, he wrote novels to augment his salary. Despite good reviews, the success of the novel was not realized until well after Stoker's death. Now available as an instant download at AudioBookStore.com, the audio version is narrated by rich voices that evoke the horror and dread spawned by the vampire. This Gothic horror story is relayed minus the nonsensical approach of current vampire depictions, and as such is widely regarded as a true horror classic.

This blood-curdling tale of blood-thirsty vampires continues to hold audiences spellbound more than a century after its publication.

Summoned to assist with legal matters regarding a real estate transaction, young Englishman Jonathan Harker journeys to the dismal, dreary castle of Count Dracula in Transylvania. The fledgling solicitor is completely unprepared for what he will discover in the days to come—and the horrifying chain of events sparked by his unsettling stay with the mysterious Count.

The Dracula mythology has inspired a vast subculture, but the story has never been better told than by Bram Stoker. He succeeds entirely in his aim to terrify. His myth is powerful because it allows evil to remain mysterious, unconquerable by strength of mind or virtuous action. Van Helsing’s high-thinking and scientific skill cannot resist the dreadful potency of the undead. The high virtue of Lucy can simply be drained away, as her blood is drained away, until she too joins the vampire brood. Only the old magic—a crucifix, garlic, a wooden stake—can provide effective weapons against the Count’s appalling power.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the most powerful horror tales ever written.”

    Malcolm Bradbury, English author and academic

  • “In seeking a parallel to this weird, powerful, and horrorful story our mind reverts to such tales as The Mysteries of Udolpho, Frankenstein, The Fall of the House of Usher…but Dracula is even more appalling in its gloomy fascination than any one of these.”

    Daily Mail

  • “Whitfield’s competence is apparent in the retelling of Dracula. He wisely eschews over-dramatization, despite the horror story’s emotional extremes, resulting in a performance that generates even more impact for this classic.”

    Media

  • “The world’s best-known vampire story comes to life in this expert performance by Robert Whitfield. His subtle shading of voice gives complete personality and motivation to each of the eight protagonists…For a classic performance of a classic work, this production must not be missed.”

    " Really good storytelling. If you can relate to the locations and the time period, you'll have an even better time reading. Lots of unanswered questions and leaps, but the author didn't have to develop every last detail to make it interesting to follow. A bit anti-climactic, but a nice build up to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angelina | 2/17/2014

    " I loved the strong female characters, but found it difficult at times to suspend my knowledge of vampire lore. It was refreshing to read the original and I wish I had done it before Hollywood dampened its effect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charity Lenderman | 2/17/2014

    " One of my all time favorites. "

    " I am a huge fan of classics and horror/goth happens to be a genre I enjoy a lot, so when the two meet I thought perhaps I would be in for a ride. Turns out I have never been so wrong! I have got nothing against the classic, nor am I averse to watch a well made adaptation of the book, heck even an audio book could work perhaps for me but I just couldn't finish reading this book; that I know the story perhaps was a reason but turns out epistolary novels aren't really my thing. Bram Stoker has created a classic. This is a masterpiece for sure in terms of content but the writing really really got to me. The beginning of the book was something that really got me hooked on I liked the way Jonathan was written and Dracula captured my attention from the get go. But the further you go into the book the more it becomes a task to just stay awake it seems. Especially with the letters among the women - Mina and Lucy; not to mention the whole monologue that Jonathan noted down as narrated by Dracula to him kinda reminded me of Meredith' rambling from Grey' anatomy. I do happen to like the show however it really doesn't mean Meredith' monologues at times doesn't annoy me. The rating is purely for the concept and plot alone and nothing else. "

    " A classic that still holds up. Not what you'd expect if your only sense of the story is from modern pop culture versions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben Stark | 2/10/2014

    " While Dracula might be one of the slowest reads of all time, the language is simply to die for! I have to admit that while the story is very interesting, the actual language of the book is what I really read it for. "

    " Letters pertaining to the plot made the story interesting; however, the love letters and diatribes for which the author deems it necessary to confess each characters feelings, were a bore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie Knock | 2/7/2014

    " I adored this book and cannot believe it took me so long to get around to reading it. The story was much more than you expect it to be, and dracula is not the 'man' depicted in horro stories of the same name, he's much more sinister, manipulative and dangerous. If you have not yet read this I urge you too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Cusson | 2/2/2014

    " The story is fantastic, and created the basis for vampire tropes. However, the words got in the way of the story. I found it impossible to really lose myself in what could have been riveting and emotional-the personal nature of the format allows for it nicely-due to the utter insane amounts of unnecessary and frankly, boring prose. I have not read any other of Stoker's work, for fear this is his style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 1/31/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. I read it for a first-year reading fiction class at university and I really got into it. I really like how even though "the vampire" today is so... not creepy anymore... Dracula returns to the reader that initial disturbing quality about vampires and gothic literature. Dracula is creepy, as he should be, and the read is a bit dark. If you're going to pick a monster book, I recommend Stoker's Dracula over Mary Shelley's Frankenstein! You won't trust long-fingered, aristocratic men ever again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronnie Walker | 1/28/2014

    " How I managed to not read this book before now, I dont know. But I am glad I finally did! I thought I knew the story of Dracula, but I didn't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia Symons | 1/26/2014

    " This is one of my all-time favorite books. One of the things that I like about it is that it is, of course, an eerie mystery. And I like 19th-century novels generally. But what appeals to me is that it's a classic battle of good versus evil, where Good wins. It is also a story about technology winning which appeals to me very much. This is lost on the average 21st century reader; the tools used by Mina and the gang to stop Dracula were new technology at that time, things like typewriters and recording devices. That's pretty cool. But I think one of the things that I like best, especially compared to other vampire stories, is that there are boundaries on evil; there are rules that must be followed. There are ways to control the evil--to stem the tide. That appeals to me; it reflects an optimism about the way that the world works it is often absent today. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ali Fahmy | 1/24/2014

    " I FINALLY FINISHED IT! SIGH! That is how I feel about the book. Had it not been for the way it is written, I would have given it only one star and one star it deserves, but well, I will be generous. This was definitely the most boring read, it took me almost a month to finish the book. I could find time for everything but reading for I knew I would fall asleep on the first page turn, if I could make it that far. This probably returns to my previous knowledge of the story, but not only. The pace of the book is so slow and not by any mean or measure the least bit of exciting. I endured all pages and struggled to reach the end and when I was there... not fucking worth it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neens | 1/21/2014

    " I never expected an old horror story to be so amazing - especially as I'm not fond of horror stories. But this book was so ahead of its time that if I didn't know better I would have thought it was a contemporary book that just happened to be set in Victorian times. A true classic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rawle Charles | 1/20/2014

    " I may have done myself a disservice with this one. While the actors performed their roles phenomenally, and the moody sound-effects set the stage expertly, this was more of an abridged version of the novel with much of the prose left out. They captured the essence of Stoker's novel but let some of the heart of it escape. Knowing the story beforehand didn't make it any better, or rather this version does not go beyond what I had already learned from movies or comics-which all told had always been intriguing. But it does nothing to inspire the allure in me that so many have held toward the subject material. This was simply a well-acted play of Bram Stoker's Dracula. It satisfied my interest in the author (so now I can say I read Bram Stoker, and wasn't all that impressed). Maybe one day I will revisit the novel in its full length prose format, but its on to bigger and better things from here. "

    " Not necessarily one of my favorite books but it was good enough to keep my interest till the end. Some chapters were really suspenseful and kept me reading to find out more while others seemed like fillers to me, although in the end they did make sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Dee | 12/30/2013

    " I enjoyed this book more at the beginning than towards the end and I can say the same thing about Van Helsing. He was funny and charming at first but his manner of speaking becomes mildly annoying. However, it is nice to finally know the original story of Dracula. "

    " Reading the classic novel is so much different than the story of Dracula that you THINK you know. I like that it's told using journals and letters from several different characters' POVs. It lets the narrative stay fresh. It could have gotten super boring if only told by one character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard English | 12/21/2013

    " I'm by no means an expert, but I think this book was way ahead of its time. Still readable after so many years, despite a complete change in culture and context. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 12/6/2013

    " I worked through this with my seniors up to the part where we meet the character who is eating spiders. At this point we exit to the 1931 movie version. We read enough to discuss differences between the two stories and talk about Stoker's life and what really inspired him to write the play which he then turned into a novel. We moved directly from this to Macbeth and are noting the elements of this play that are echoed in Dracula. A bit dark for my taste but then I am not a horror lover. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William Tucker | 12/5/2013

    " A convoluted story with a charismatic central character, Dracula remains a high watermark. My trouble with the book is simply that I may be disturbed by the way Stoker chose to tell the story. Also, it seems to me there are holes in the plot. Fred Saberhagen wrote a wonderful companion piece entitled "The Dracula Tape" in which the Count went back over the details of the events in this novel, tweaking, correcting the plot where he thought necessary. Also, Mr. Saberhagen had a lot of fun with the voice of the Count. Perhaps it's only that this book is of another time and my comprehension is not as keen as it might be, but the legend outshines the origin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 11/30/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Divya Kumman | 11/30/2013

    " The whole book is a collection of letters and posts between the main characters. To get to the main blood sucking Dracula part you have to wait for a long time into the book. The movies made into a horror novel but it isn't. Maybe it was for the Victorian era people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 11/18/2013

    " This book was pretty intense. It was almost more intense because it's a story that everybody already knows. The whole time you're reading it you want to scream at the characters to do something differently, just like watching a horror movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Sanders | 7/16/2013

    " You need to read this if you're a 'vampire enthusiast!' Where do you think the obsession started? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tan Ayla | 7/14/2013

    " A page turner. Despite starting off real slow, I managed to pick up the reading speed because it got more interesting as I turn more of the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toffana | 6/24/2013

    " I realized that this was written in the Victorian era, but the level of misogyny was still astonishing. A classic and a fun read nevertheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori Hvizda ward | 6/20/2013

    " Read it because I never had before. I wish I had read it when I was a teenager. It would have been fresher and more frightening, I think, without my having seen so many horror movies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie Stevens lebofsky | 6/3/2013

    " A classic, a bit long, but even creepier than some of the movies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abbi Thomas | 5/31/2013

    " Great book! Some of the language and telling of events is a tad confusing but it all makes sense eventually. It was very cool to read the father, if you will, of all vampire novels and see how all the twilight madness began. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gaurish Gaunso | 4/20/2013

    " Very good read. But it lacks a respectable & desired ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck White | 4/17/2013

    " Twilight schmilight. Dracula is a mans vampire! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet Bellusci | 4/17/2013

    " Scariest book I ever read. Really. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki | 4/5/2013

    " I absolutely adore the story but I hate how Stoker writes as if he's writing a diary. "Today I got up and went..." I can't stand that! But who doesn't love a magical vampire that follows the Harkers everywhere. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Islam El-ghitany | 4/4/2013

    " The real story of Dracula, when Dracula is not a hero or even horror, he is a cursed immoral man suffer from lonless "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cory O'connell | 3/30/2013

    " Honestly I'm sad that I have finished this book, as it leaves me craving for more and yet there is nothing left to the story of the characters I have grown so fond of. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marina Dawson | 2/12/2013

    " I don't know why but I didn't expect this to be a page turner - it was! Especially the opening part of Harker's journal. Modern horror owes much to this great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abbi Thomas | 1/29/2013

    " Great book! Some of the language and telling of events is a tad confusing but it all makes sense eventually. It was very cool to read the father, if you will, of all vampire novels and see how all the twilight madness began. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 1/17/2013

    " I loved huge chunks of this, particularly involving Jonathan Harker. The adventure scenes were fast and rollicking, and it's clear why Dracula has endured for so long. I felt, though, like in Moby Dick, there were gigantic digressions, that took away from the main story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angrymom | 1/11/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Donald | 12/29/2012

    " You know we have all heard of and seen Dracula in films, but I had never read this novel. Finally, I have and it is safe to say it was good, but not as I expected. Films make it seem so much more than it is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Raffael Lima | 11/6/2012

    " The style and the athmosphere created by Stoker is fantastic. It's the best vampire book that exists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leata Holloway | 10/28/2012

    " Wow! Dracula isn't nearly as sympathetic as popular films would have us believe. I get it. But you know what? I can't let my empathy go, completely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teri | 10/19/2012

    " Loved this story. A classic for a reason. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky Beltz | 10/19/2012

    " Last read it in college for lit. Interesting read after watching the different movies made from it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pablo | 10/15/2012

    " I liked this book but the female characters in it are way too Victorian for my taste. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robby Tremble | 9/20/2012

    " This has been my favorite book for many, many years. The format of letters and diary entries pieced together to form a cohesive story is brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 9/9/2012

    " Not bad, not what I expected either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Duc Hm | 8/29/2012

    " Instant classic. It has been a while that I read it last and maybe the memories as of the details are slightly faded, but the tension and dark atmosphere that is built up throughout the book is still fresh when i remember the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 8/13/2012

    " It surprised me how much this book grabbed me and how powerful the women characters were. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catt Hoang | 7/17/2012

    " why did Val Helsing make the blood transactions from 4 men to Lucy without blood type testing? I think it was that why she died, let alone the vampire. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natascha | 7/10/2012

    " Utterly creepy. "

    " Didn't get it finished. Moves too slow. "

    " An intense book and a very good plot line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Cohen | 6/28/2012

    " The images in this book gave me nightmares. Very scary. Surprisingly so. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hunter Carl | 5/17/2012

    " Fantastic. The way you write books, and show the world vampires don't glitter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane Warrington | 4/19/2012

    " Just as good as I remember it reading it years ago. The journal format works really. Atmospheric, character driven and quite unlike all the rather poorly made movie versions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marti DabaÄŸoÄŸlu | 4/14/2012

    " A classic...and a great book to re-read;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Rankin | 4/11/2012

    " classic horror fiction. The first book to create a whole industry around itself in terms of films and actors making their career from playing or filming Dracula. The book is masterpiece of imagination and storytelling "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tamara | 4/1/2012

    " Dracula. Classic. Van Helsing! Ahh. SO good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Antoinette Clements | 2/27/2012

    " Despite years of Dracula's secret being out of the bag this story stilled had me hooked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina | 1/28/2012

    " If you like vampires then you must read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harland Lundy | 1/4/2012

    " Hands down, this is my favorite book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ash | 12/22/2011

    " Stoker chills and captivates with this erotic classic. Whether you're a lover of vampires, horror, the gothic or the sensually profane, this is a book that tantalizes. A must read for any avid book lover. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salokya | 11/7/2011

    " Holy God!!! Totally and inmensely awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 11/7/2011

    " As I was reading this book I tried to put myself in the place of a person experiencing vampire lore for the first time. So much more intensity to the book when you look at it from that point of view. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 11/6/2011

    " Slow getting going but Always one of my favorite reads ^^ "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elvira | 11/5/2011

    " I tried to finish this book on like seven different occasions, it's definitely not an easy read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 11/4/2011

    " I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I got sucked in from the start and thought it moved very well; it's a fun read, particularly around Halloween. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marydcollett | 10/31/2011

    " It was really interesting to read the original tale that has inspired so many vampire stories. I only got really scared once. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gaurish Gaunso | 10/11/2011

    " I get what all the hub-bub is about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Brady | 7/22/2011

    " I almost gave this book 5 stars but I am really only giving that to my all time fav books. This being close to it though. It was excellent. I don't usually like the really old and dated books but this one seems timeless. Bram Stoker is a master story teller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carl Opel | 7/18/2011

    " I read books like this to stimulate my imagination and help create the mental movie as a release from boredom and frustration. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis | 6/30/2011

    " It was pretty good. It was an easy read and kinda scary at times. Not as scary as I thought it would be though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 priscilla | 6/30/2011

    " I'm always amazed at literature that can remain funny & scary so many years after it's release. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyssa | 6/29/2011

    " Very shocked at how different the book was from any movie version I ever saw. Besides vampires and the name Dracula, there were very few comparisons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 6/28/2011

    " This was a lot of fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete | 6/28/2011

    " The pop culture image I grew up with of Dracula was completely changed after reading this. I enjoyed it a lot though with the exception of a few low points which I won't get into. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renae | 6/28/2011

    " Well written classic. Everyone knows the main character from modern references and cliches. It was great to read the original story and image the impact it had on the first readers! "

    " I liked this book a lot. Was somewhat addicted to it. However, I absolutely hate the way it ended in like two pages. I felt very let down, like it was anti-climatic. :( "
