Dracula

Chilling and thrilling,

Chilling and thrilling, this book should only be read in fall.

Its epistolary nature heightens the intrigue of this novel by Bram Stoker, revealing the characters through their unique perspectives of supernatural events.

Stoker’s Mina Harker, a beautiful and imposing figure, commands the pages of most every male character’s journal; an object of lust to the modern reader as well, she stands in stark contrast to prevailing conceptions of the repression of England’s Victorian age.
