Of the many admiring reviews Bram Stoker's Dracula received when it first appeared in 1897, the most astute praise came from the author's mother, who wrote her son: "It is splendid. No book since Mrs. Shelley's Frankenstein or indeed any other at all has come near yours in originality, or terror."

A popular bestseller in Victorian England, Stoker's hypnotic tale of the bloodthirsty Count Dracula, whose nocturnal atrocities are symbolic of an evil ages old yet forever new, endures as the quintessential story of suspense and horror. The unbridled lusts and desires, the diabolical cravings that Stoker dramatized with such mythical force, render Dracula resonant and unsettling a century later. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

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

    Malcolm Bradbury, English author and academic

  • Those who cannot find their own reflection in Bram Stoker's still-living creation are surely the undead."
  • “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

    " this book has to be one of the most terrifying books i have ever read. even the start of the book has a creepy start to it "here keep this cross with you. said the house keeper. its not safe were your going." at one point of reading this book i jumped in my chair and threw the book on the table. i did not pick the book back up and start reading it until 2 days later.if that is not proof that this book is not terrifying then i don't know what is.

    " A true classic. Sometimes the prose seems overly verbose, but times have changed and so have writing styles. Still a timeless piece of writing, and every bit as relevant to modern literature as anything written since. Worth reading just to see where it all began. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Tami Stackelhouse | 12/14/2013

    " It's impossible to read this and feel the terror and thrill that one would have it they had read it when it was originally written. I realized half-way through the book that Dracula was still a mystery - and so was the illness of poor Lucy. Though, of course, I knew what was wrong, because I know who Dracula is. I'm somewhat sad that I can't read this without that foreknowledge. It would be a positively terrifying book! =) "
