Dracula
Author: Bram Stoker
The punctured throat, the coffin lid slowly opening, the unholy shriek as the stake pierces the heart—these are just a few of the chilling images Bram Stoker unleashed upon the world with his 1897 masterpiece, Dracula. Inspired by the folk legend of ...  more »
 the undead, Stoker created a timeless tale of gothic horror and romance that has enthralled and terrified readers ever since.

A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But Dracula also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written — and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition.

This particular issue is focussed on a motion picture from Columbia Pictures in the early 90's. This is truly a classic of horror stories, and if you haven't read it, you definitely should!!

Wow...what can I say? Very well written. I was sort of let down at the ending. I didn't feel it was quite dramatic enough.

I can see where women would be upset at some of the wording and ideals but then I remind myself of when this was written. Overall, a very good read.

This book was pretty good, but a little hard to follow. I had to read it for a college class and after a group discussion of a book I liked it a lot better.
