Dracula: En espaņol
Of the many admiring reviews Bram Stoker’s Dracula received when it first appeared in 1897, the most astute praise came from the author's mother, who wrote her son: 'It is splendid. No book since Mrs. Shelley's Frankenstein or indeed any other at all has come near yours in originality, or terror.'
A popular bestseller in Victorian England, Stoker's hypnotic tale of the bloodthirsty Count Dracula, whose nocturnal atrocities are symbolic of an evil ages old yet forever new, endures as the quintessential story of suspense and horror. The unbridled lusts and desires, the diabolical cravings that Stoker dramatized with such mythical force, render Dracula resonant and unsettling a century later.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

My son's reading a kid's version right now. I remember thinking this book was a total disappointment. Read it in my "Vampirism" class at UCSB. I wish I could see what Rickels (my Vampirism professor) is doing with the Twilight series now! Read full review
