Bram Stoker's Dracula is full of the kind of chills and thrills that mark the very best horror stories and films. Jonathan Harker, a freshly-minted English lawyer, travels to Transylvania to take on a new assignment. What seems like a cut-and-dry legal case involving real estate negotiations takes on a whole new horrific aspect when Harker discovers that his new client—and host—is none other than the famous Count Dracula. As the frightening nature of the Count begins to reveal itself, terrifying and ghoulish events lead to dangerous confrontations between blood-thirsty vampires and their human prey. No one is safe while Dracula lives.

Born in Ireland, Bram Stoker (1847-1912) overcame early childhood illness to become a gifted student and athlete well into his college education. Stoker embarked on a professional career as a civil servant in Dublin, publishing short stories and theatre reviews to supplement his income. Stoker's 1887 novel Dracula was inspired by a visit to an ancient Scottish castle and drew on many years of research into vampire legends and myths. Dracula sealed Stoker's own legend as a master of horror writing and gave rise to countless interpretations in film and on the stage. While Dracula is the work most associated with Bram Stoker, the author also wrote several other novels, among them The Primrose Path, The Jewel of the Stars, and The Lair of the White Worm.Back to top

Exciting, slight Difficult, The book is worth reading
It was amazing story. Every installment was full of thrills and tension. Difficult for new readers especially non-English. I advise them to keep Online/offline dictionary on hand. Google Dictionary Extension for Chrome was perfect. Some languages other than English in this book can't be translated.

There's a reason this is a classic. It's a great book. Most of us know the general outline of the story because of other adaptations of the Dracula story, but if you haven't already read the original by Bram Stoker, do it.
