Book Excerpt

ll and opened up the lofty, snow-covered peak of a mountain, which seemed, as we wound on our serpentine way, to be right before us.

"Look! Isten szek!"--"God's seat!"--and he crossed himself reverently.

As we wound on our endless way, and the sun sank lower and lower behind us, the shadows of the evening began to creep round us. This was emphasized by the fact that the snowy mountain-top still held the sunset, and seemed to glow out with a delicate cool pink. Here and there we passed Cszeks and slovaks, all in picturesque attire, but I noticed that goitre was painfully prevalent. By the roadside were many crosses, and as we swept by, my companions all crossed themselves. Here and there was a peasant man or woman kneeling before a shrine, who did not even turn round as we approached, but seemed in the self-surrender of devotion to have neither eyes nor ears for the outer world. There were many things new to me. For instance, hay-ricks in the trees, and here and there very beautiful masses of wee

First read it when I was 15 and it froze me in terror. Then came Christopher Lee's excellent scary film. Then on I have read the book many times and love getting disturbed every time. Set at Victorian period with the old England language, the book still fascinates me.

Best of the best Vampire themed stories i have ever read. got me goosebumps but enjoyed reading............
I have read many vampire stories, from the scary (Salem's Lot) to the romantic (Twilight) but, despite it's age, this is by far the creepiest vampire novel I have read. In fact, this is the only vampire story that has ever disturbed my sleep. The old-world language and diary format lend it an air of tension to this novel that is lacking in other vampire books that I have read. Most horror books are scary, but fairly predictable. Not so, Bram Stoker's Dracula. I found this story to be intriguing and enthralling and I found myself unable to put it down. This is the original vampire novel and, in my opinion, still the best.
seen the films,did`nt think it nessasary to read the book,thought it would be a tad hard going due to the time it was written in,how wrong i was!the book is fantastic,from start to finish,still relevant in this day and age,smashing read!highly recomended.
One of my favorites! This story has the perfect mixture of mystery and horror without the gore. Bram Stoker certainly knew how to tell a tale and keep the reader glued to the pages!
