An Apple Books Classic edition.
Few characters have seized readers’ imaginations quite like Count Dracula of Transylvania, the hero of Bram Stoker’s classic. The 1897 novel put vampires front and center on the cultural map, providing direct inspiration for an entire subgenre of bloodsucker fiction - including blockbusters like theTwilight series and Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles - and spawning hundreds of movie adaptations!
Stoker’s novel is a thrill ride, following Dracula as he moves from Transylvania to England in search of fresh blood, while a small but dedicated group attempts to thwart him. Want more Stoker? Check out his great-grandnephew Dacre Stoker’s 2018 novel, Dracul.

Classic, worth a read
A literary classic. Just a joy to see where Dracula, the vampire, comes from. It’s quite different from many of the movie adaptations. For one, he’s not a sympathetic romantic figure. He’s cruel, cold, and heartless. The only thing that prevents this book from getting 5 stars is that Stoker wasn’t really good at writing accents. So when he’s writing (very minor) characters speaking with a cockney accent, it becomes a chore to get through. Outside of that, I would recommend this book.
I have just finished reading this great story for the second time. The first was some 26 or so years ago. It was even better the second time. No movie can ever do it justice. It is truly a work of art. Bravo Mr. Stoker.
Stoker’s Dracula novel is amazing!
Finally read this novel again after many years had passed. I first read through it as a teenager but not sure if I understood what was happening throughout the book. I only wish someone would make a movie or series actually about Stoker’s Dracula and not some director’s interpretation or vision of this amazing horror story. When you read it please take time to absorb what’s happening in real time as each individual shares their accounts of the various events that lead up to the unbelievable climax!
