Stoker's familiar classic is presented in truly memorable ways. The vampire himself, Count Dracula, is made chillingly bloodcurdling by narrator Greg Wise, but the other characters he reads are equally on target. Speaking of targets, the damsels whose necks the count would love to kiss are flawlessly rendered by Saskia Reeves. This is an audiobook tour de force, a seemingly full-cast recording of many voices and accents, set amid exquisitely handled elements of drama, fear, puzzlement, and resolve.

Told in journal fragments that cannot provide any single perspective. The definitive book for vampire fiction is well written but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy read. By today’s standards Dracula is slow to unfold, with long, often tedious sections, including dialogue that doesn’t up the conflict or push the story forward much. The use of diary entries, letters, ships logs etc. to tell the story may give the book an authentic feel and does a good job of keeping the evil ones mysterious but it doesn’t always engage the reader as much as a conventional novel might.

Author : Bram Stoker. Dracula is an 1897 novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, featuring as its primary antagonist the vampire Count Dracula. It was first published as a hardcover in 1897 by Archibald Constable and Co. Dracula has been attributed to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic novel and invasion literature.

Dracula by Bram Stoker. Read by Greg Wise and Saskia Reeves. Series: Standalone Publisher: BBC Audio Time: 18 hours, 24 minutes (unabridged) Format: Audible Download. Story: Narration: ‘Alone with the dead! I dare not go out, for I can hear the low howl of the wolf through the broken window’. Love it as I do, it’s got some glaring flaws. The reason Dracula is regarded as a ‘classic’ isn’t because it’s a literary masterpiece on par with the greats – it’s really not – but because it’s really good at what it is, a crowd-pleasing horror, and because it helped create the popularity and features of the ‘modern vampire’.

The story was first published in the December 5, 1891, special Christmas issue of the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News weekly magazine.

Readers: Greg Wise and Saskia Reeves. Format: 16 CDs (Unabridged). The quintessential story of suspense and horror. Dracula, the undead, is doomed to walk the earth forever, shackled with a grotesque and deadly craving. A remarkable classic tale about an evil as old as time, yet forever young. The movie Van Helsing, with Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale, and Richard Roxburgh, takes as its main character the vampire hunter from this tale.

Dracula grips you from the opening pages, where young, innocent solicitor Jonathan Harker goes to perform a job for the mysterious Count Dracula in the wilds of the Carpathian mountains. Stoker builds the tension perfectly as Harker makes his way to the castle, then lets the horror gradually unfold. Then, just when our worry for Harker is at its peak, Stoker takes us to England and continues the story with a whole other group of characters. The story is told in an unusual way, through a combination of journal entries, letters, and news articles. It works well to show the different character’s perspectives.

My sisters and I grew up with the knowledge that Bram Stoker was our great-grand uncle; and so we have always felt that his creation, Dracula, is our cousin and that his story is intertwined with our own. Halloween is a big deal for children in Canada, so growing up with a personal Dracula connection caused a certain stir, although it was our friends who were more impressed by the idea than my sisters and I were.

Bram Stoker took note of Vlad’s name, Dracula, and used it for his character. Vlad acquired the name Dracula because of his father’s name, Vlad II Dracul. It was Sigismund, King of Hungary and the future Holy Roman Emperor, who initiated Vlad II into his society of knights. Vlad Dracula engaged in various wars and battles of the time, and enemy troops sometimes imprisoned him. During one of his imprisonments, a bishop described him: He was not very tall, but very stocky and strong, with a cold and terrible appearance, a strong and aquiline nose, swollen nostrils, a thin reddish face in which very long eyelashes framed large wide-open green eyes; the bushy black eyebrows made them appear threatening.
