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.

Very good book. Bit boring at times
Timeless and amazing
I haven't been able to put this novel down. This is the third time that I have read Bram Stoker's Dracula and I enjoy it more each time I read it. I'm going to Whitby in a few months and I'm looking forward to finding spots from the book and trying to sense what it was like in the late 1800's. I recommend that everyone should at least give this classic a go.
Origins of Dracula
The original story of the Count Dracula takes me to old fashioned times of the spoken word, absorbing & detailed writing of fear, hope & love. The character of van Helsing the archetypical hero of the story is a joy to read about full of conscious wonder & travelled man of the world. Although reading Dracula I'm reminded how old the writing is & it might not appeal to the younger generation. Written in a diary format from each of the central characters it evokes different emotions from different perspectives, Consequently making it a tiring read. All in all an enjoyable experience & wonderful illustrations to boot.
