Classic Monday: Dracula by Bram Stoker

433 pages

Mysterious, gloomy castles and open graves at midnight are just two of the Gothic devices used to chilling effect in this 19th-century horror classic that turned an obscure figure from Eastern European folklore into a towering icon of film and literature.

Everyone knows who Dracula is but not many know Bram Stoker's Dracula. We know Hollywood's version of vampires but we don't realize where the original story began. Dracula shows the real horrific side to vampires and creates a chilling atmosphere in this novel. This is a must read classic.
