A truly classic novel, Bram Stokers Dracula first brought the legend of Vlad the Impaler into the fictional world. The novel has since inspired an endless plethora of vampire books and films, working from the basis of this eloquent original.

Written entirely in diary form from the perspectives of a number of characters, Dracula presents a personal insight into the lives of its protagonists as they challenge the terror of the blood sucking undead. Perhaps to a fews disappointment, Hugh Jackman’s burly portrayal of Van Helsing is nowhere to be found here, instead a coy tactician and intellectual features in the battle between good and evil. This is a must for any classic literature and horror fans!

Length: 560 (Penguin Classics)

Overall Rating: 5 stars
