Dracula is the seminal gothic horror novel of its time as Bram Stoker introduced the world to the legendary vampire Count Dracula.
Published in 1897 and told through a series of diary entries and letters, the story journeys into the dark world of Count Dracula through the eyes of several different narrators. The novel explores many themes, the role of women in Victorian culture, conventional and conservative sexuality, immigration, colonialism, post colonialism and folklore.
Irish author Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847 - 1912) was writer of novels and short stories. He was also the personal assistant of the actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned.

Superb narration of Dracula
Saul's narration is brilliant and the changing narrative comes through very well. The first phase of the book with Harker ending up at castle Dracula was done particularly splendidly, and the cast of characters were easily discernable.
Don't be fooled by the silly cover art, this is a top-notch production!
Amazing narration! I can't imagine anyone else reading this book.
