Title: Dracula
Author: Bram Stoker
Call Number: PR6037.T617 D7 1993b 
Location: 2nd Floor Arts and Humanities
Rating: Highly Recommended
Book Review: A literary classic and an epistolary novel, Dracula is written in the form of diary entries by Mr. Harker, who first meets and stays with Count Dracula in Transylvania on a business trip; his wife Mina Murray, who becomes the center of the plot; and Dr. Seward, who comes into the fold after examining one of Dracula’s victims. The infamous Dr. Van Helsing becomes an influential character, providing guidance and insight to the small band that endeavors to try to discover, capture, and kill the elusive, undead, blood-drinking vampire Count Dracula. This book is full of horror and intrigue with more of a scientific point of view rather than a romanticized drama as seen in contemporary vampire films and TV shows.
