Mi stava vicino, lo vedevo da sopra la spalla, ma nello specchio non si rifletteva! In Transilvania per concludere la vendita di una casa londinese al Conte Dracula, discendente di un'antichissima casata locale, il giovane agente immobiliare Jonathan Harker scopre che il suo cliente è una creatura di mistero e orrore... Dracula, archetipo delle infinite storie di vampiri narrate dalla letteratura e dal cinema, mette in scena l'eterna lotta tra il Bene e il Male, ma anche tra la ragione e l'istinto, tra le pulsioni più inconfessabili e il perbenismo non solo vittoriano. Una storia scaturita dall'inconscio ed entrata in tutti i nostri incubi.

Two things about this book: 1. It is a really great and creepy story that deserves classic status 2. Everything is repeated soooooo much without any obvious benefit. Here is actual footage of Bram Stoker writing this novel: If Stoker had just got to the point, this book would have been much more excitin Leggi tutto

Dracula: the very name instantly brings to mind visions of vampires, stakes, garlic, and crucifixes. Yet, when one bothers to read the novel, it becomes self-evident how twisted modern vampire fiction now is. Vampires are not meant to inhabit the roles of heroes. Go back a few hundred years and men b Leggi tutto
I find Victorian horror so interesting because it’s a clear reaction to social norms of the time, to the buttoned-down and repressed social climate of the time, to the “new moral standards” of the church and the new questions brought up and hidden away by scientific thought. But under the fabric of Leggi tutto
Shockingly, not a whole hell of a lot of vampire stuff up in this bitch. Mostly, it read like a dull travelogue with lots of emotions - bro love everywhere! All the men loved all the women (platonically or otherwise) to the point they were willing to give their lives for whichever lucky lady was gett Leggi tutto
Dracula is a truly timeless MASTERPIECE. Believe it or not, I am still unable to review this, one of my very favorite novels of all time . I annotated my most recent time reading it, in the hopes that it would help when it came to composing my final thoughts. Alas, what I am really struggling with is t Leggi tutto
Managed to finish this :) Second time studying, but first successful read-through. I enjoyed it more this time around, mainly because I actually read the last quarter or so of the book, which was the most enjoyable in my opinion.
Dracula is, of course, one of the most renowned horror stories, and the most well-known vampire novel. Bram Stoker set the ground rules for what a vampire should be, and set the benchmark for all other writers of the vampire afterwards. Indeed, if tyrannical villains are a necessity of Gothic fictio Leggi tutto
I was rather disappointed by this classic. It started out with promise, especially the Jonathan Harker bits. Then all the male characters descended into blubbering worshippers of the two female characters, and by the end of the novel, I was wishing Dracula could snack on all of them and be done with Leggi tutto
