Regarded as one of the most influential horror tales ever written, and the inspiration for countless literary spin-offs, the tale of the young Englishman Jonathan Harker's journey into the very heart of Count Dracula's evil realm remains a compelling read. A thriller of hypnotic power, a dark exploration of sexuality, mythology, and the supernatural, and a plain old-fashioned masterpiece of storytelling, the nightmarish story of Dracula
is one of the all-time classics of supernatural fiction.
'One of the most powerful horror tales ever written.'
'I think it is the very best story of diablerie which I have read for
many years. It is really wonderful how with so much exciting interest
over so long a book
there is never an anticlimax.'
Arthur Conan Doyle
'Those who cannot find their own reflection in Bram Stoker’s
still-living creature are surely the undead.'
The New York Times
'An exercise in masculine anxiety and nationalist
paranoia, Stoker’s novel is filled with scenes that are
staggeringly lurid and perverse.'
