Alone with the dead! I dare not go out, for I can hear the low howl of the wolf through the broken window.

When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula with the purchase of a London house, he makes horrifying discoveries about his client and his castle. Soon afterwards, a number of disturbing incidents unfold in England: an unmanned ship is wrecked at Whitby; strange puncture marks appear on a young woman’s neck; and the inmate of a lunatic asylum raves about the imminent arrival of his ‘Master’. In the ensuing battle of wits between the sinister Count Dracula and a determined group of adversaries, Bram Stoker created a masterpiece of the horror genre, probing deeply into questions of human identity and sanity, and illuminating dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire.

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

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Bea | 2/18/2014

    " The only reason why this got a 4 star rating is because I haven't read it cover to cover in five years. I'll have to change that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Stacey H | 2/9/2014

    " The beginning went really fast; the rest of the novel, not so much. I was creeped out by the descriptions of Count Dracula and sometimes put off by the Victorian portrayal of women. But overall, definitely worth reading. "

    " At long last, I finished this book. With great effort. It is a very interesting story. But I hated reading it. It just caused me stress. I liked the characters and the plot, but the writing - oh, the writing! How I loathed Stoker's writing style. There were TOO MANY words. Far too many words and I couldn't handle it. It wasn't so much the description of what was happening but the actual dialogue. It angered me to no end because characters would just talk for pages and pages and literally only a quarter of it is necessary. I hated that about this novel. A part from that, it was good. But it was just an awful reading experience. I skipped so many paragraphs of their incessant dialogue, I probably missed half the story. But I couldn't read it all. TOO MANY WORDS. So, if you don't like reading unnecessary chunks of writing, I suggest you stay away. I probably wouldn't have read it all if it weren't for university. Sorry, Stoker. Not impressed. "

    " I picked up this book half-heartedly. We all know the story, so what? But I wanted to read the original. It does not dissapoint. I really enjoyed the quasi-magical properties the characters assign to electricity (this book was written during the enlightened years of late XIX century). The narrative is so full of British turn of the century style. I also enjoyed the gramatically incorrect expressions of Dr Van Helsing. I really enjoyed the story, although after seeing the protracted Hollywood adaptations, it is hard to scaled back down to the mood of the original. Very good read. "
