Dracula by Bram Stoker Book Summary

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.

O.V. (Original Vampire)From what I understand, this is the first piece of media involving vampires. I guess Mr. Stoker mentioned a book in an interview, cited it as inspiration, and hoped, also, that another author would complete her scholarly work of the nosferatu. However, this seems to be the original, gold standard of vampires. Anyone looking for more information on where vampires come from will find it interesting. It is allegedly gathered from all the myths and traditions. However, anyone looking for a good story and not considering it an essential piece of literature to our culture, is better off choosing a more modern book. Dracula drags on and on between scary parts. And the philosophy, or "moral" of the story is so obvious and wordy, it makes you think there must be a different meaning..Score: 2/5

DraculaI am not a fan of horror stories, but I consider this literature. There is so much more to this book than most might expect, having mainly known this story through the Hollywood films inspired by the book. The story is told in a novel way for the era, through diary entries and letters, newspaper stories, etc, and this gives it a taste of ordinary, real life that gradually builds to the revelation of the monstrous. The reader realizes the horror of the situation at the same pace as the characters within the story come to realize it, pulling the reader into the terror and complexity of the situation..Score: 5/5

Classic, worth a readA 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..Score: 4/5

The Dracula Epic.A epic, masterful account of the cursed and the swords that fell him. Bram Stoker delivers an exquisitely comprehensive journey from the Count’s castle to London to the majestic Carpathian Mountains and the mythical region of Transylvania. The story unfolds itself almost exclusively through journal and diary writings detailing the vampire’s stranglehold over beasts and weather and the dramatic chase to end his cursed reign over dear Madam Mina and all those he commands. An elaborate tale, deliciously articulated with climactic resolve. Brilliant! GP.Score: 5/5

I love to read and the iPhone makes it easy to bring your books with you. Dracula is a great story told all in journals and notes written from many different views. If you have seen the original film with Bela Lugosi, the book goes to a deep and rich depth. If you want to see a film version that is closer to the book, check out the one with Louis Jourdan from the BBC. It is one of the best..Score: 5/5

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!.Score: 5/5

It isn't before long that that several individuals in England find out about the superstitious figure of Dracula and attempt to rid of him altogether with God on their side.
