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.

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!
This release is a reformatting of Project Gutenberg's version of Dracula. And as such inherits the lack of italics in various portions of the text.

Stoker uses italics to provide emphasis and nuance to his characters' thoughts. Unfortunately PG tend to discount the typographic necessity of italics and this release suffers for that lack of sensitivity.

The only no-cost version of Dracula that I have found that does include italics is Barnes and Nobles's classic series.

My rating indicates my dislike for merely tarting-up and copying a poorly presented edition.

I enjoyed it very much. The setting was so vivid it was like being there.

A good first book to read.
The narration is chilling. All your wild imaginations are realized while reading it, and it takes us to a different world. Mr. Stoker is a wonderful story teller
