Description

This edition of Dracula by Bram Stoker features the original text, along with Stoker’s short story, “Dracula’s Guest,” beautifully realized for the iPad and including several full-color maps and historical illustrations.

Told in a series of first-person missives and reports, and set in 1890s Transylvania and England, Dracula is the source of every vampire story told in the 20th century, the founding text of the entire genre. Count Dracula, as Jonathan Harker, Lucy Westenra, Mina Murray, and Dr. Van Helsing learn, is a dangerous and powerful creature who’s lived for hundreds of years and possesses powers no mortal can claim. Bent on creating legions of Un-Dead followers in populous London, Dracula must be stopped—but how?

Also includes a brief introduction and author bio.

    Whoever thinks vampires are sweet-faced, fit, muscled lads who crowd American gyms and colleges, should read this masterpiece. Stoker's gloomy setting, from the remote regions of a picturesque Transylvania to the swarming alleys of ghostly Victorian London, is as contemporary as any modern thriller story. What is also really interesting from a modern standpoint is that, compared to Coppola's remake of Dracula, the character of Mina -the New Woman and real heroine of the whole book- turns out to be far more strong-willed, smart and independent than any other of her male counterparts! How refreshing... From a novel written at the end of the XIXth century!
