Dracula might not have created the vampire, but it unquestionably defined it. It is the quintessential vampire tale, and it created the most unforgettable horror icon in literature. Both charming aristocrat and violent murderer, Count Dracula is a chilling combination of the supernatural and the human: a being of unimaginable evil lurking just beneath the skin-deep mask of civility. Told in a series of letters and journal entries from multiple points of view, Dracula is the must-read book for any fan of the macabre.

Average compared to today's horror
But, considering when the book was written, it is a good read! The beginning is tense and dramatic, but then tails off a bit....
After you get through the lengthy and boring part of introducing the main characters the story kicks off again, and is really enjoyable!
A good read, gave it an extra star because it is old!
I’m 97 and hate this book
It’s rly bad and the real / first one is 10 x better I have read every dreacular ever made and this is my least favourite version
This book is extremely old fashioned, maybe someone could re-vamp it for younger readers.
