Dracula

By Bram Stoker
Dracula by Bram Stoker digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Dracula is one of the most famous public-domain horror novels in existence, responsible not just for introducing the eponymous Count Dracula, but for introducing many of the common tropes we see in modern horror fiction.

Count Dracula isn’t the first vampire to have graced the pages of literature—that honor is thought to belong to Lord Ruthven in The Vampyr, by John William Polidori—but Dracula is the vampire on which modern vampires are based.

Dracula wasn’t as famous in its day as it is today; readers of the time seemed to enjoy it as nothing more than a good story, and Stoker died nearly penniless. But its long-lasting influence is undeniable, and for all its age Dracula remains a gripping, fast-paced, and enjoyable read.

Thinking Face“Here I am writing the book review of Dracula by Bram Stoker. I had picked up this book as a friend told me she was interested in reading it. The book is 400 pages exact and I don’t regret reading it. I would not recommend it unless you really like vintage, vampires, or classics in general. Since the book was written so long ago, it has older English and at times is hard to understand. The prose itself is very wordy and very roundabout. At times, this confusing English and prose makes the book slow. In summary, the book is aged. The prose, women, and ideas are quite old and reading it current day, they can be heavily felt. However, it is extremely influential and I imagine it might have been a hit back then and in the not so distant past. It does have a lot of charm in its lore, antiquity, and creativity. I am being hard on this book but I did not dislike it. I had trouble getting through it because of its wordiness and pacing but I do not regret reading the book at all. I would probably rate it a 6.75 out of ten. It was good, not great, and I would only recommend it if you were interested in classics, vintage books, and vampires!”

About Bram Stoker

Abraham Stoker (8 November 1847 – 20 April 1912) was an Irish author, best known today for his 1897 Gothic horror novel Dracula. During his lifetime, he was better known as the personal assistant of actor Sir Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre, which Irving owned.

Stoker was born on 8 November 1847 at 15 Marino Crescent, Clontarf, on the northside of Dublin, Ireland. The park adjacent to the house is now known as Bram Stoker Park. His parents were Abraham Stoker (1799–1876) from Dublin and Charlotte Mathilda Blake Thornley (1818–1901), who was raised in County Sligo. Stoker was the third of seven children, the eldest of whom was Sir Thornley Stoker, 1st Bt. Abraham and Charlotte were members of the Church of Ireland Parish of Clontarf and attended the parish church with their children, who were baptised there. Abraham was a senior civil servant.
