In 1897, at the age of 50, Bram Stoker was touring manager to the actor Henry Irving and was enjoying a modest success as a journalist and writer. Publication in that year of Dracula was to bring him international and lasting fame.

The Dracula mythology has inspired a vast subculture, but the story has never been better told than by Stoker. He succeeds entirely in his aim to terrify. His myth is powerful because it allows evil to remain mysterious. Virtuous action has no more impact than Jonathan Harker's shovel. The high virtue of Lucy can simply be drained away, as her blood is drained away, until she too joins the vampire brood. Van Helsing's high-thinking and scientific skill cannot resist the dreadful potency of the undead. Only the old magic, a crucifix, garlic, a wooden stake, can provide effective weapons against the Count's appalling power. Download and start listening now!

    " This is not a good book to read before bed at night, it would guarantee some creepy nightmares! Written in the days when people truly believed in vampires, not as the glittery sex symbols they are today, but as evil, disturbed, vile creatures who are really worth fearing. This book is not for the faint-hearted, but also not for someone who wants an easy read; as with most of the classics, there are long, drawn-out parts to the story - at one point I almost gave up because there was a lack of action for so long, but in the end it all comes together brilliantly and is well worth reading. "

    " If I am honest I struggled a bit with the outdated language in the book but some of the imagery was excellent. The part where the count scales the castle walls like a lizard was brilliantly delivered. "

    " Dracula was a brilliant read, it hooked me from the very beginning! I found it perhaps a bit dragged out at a few key points but I would certainly recommend it! "

    " I thought this would be more entertaining- was Dracula even put to rest? I'm not sure i think I fell asleep. I believe I was expecting much more from theist famous vampire book. The worst part is that I thought it started out very good with the trip to draculas mansion and the leading up to the want of escape- and then the book began to just lose its ability to keep me interested "
