Dracula by Bram Stoker

     A dreary castle blood-thirsty vampires, open graves at midnight, and other
gothic touches fill this chilling tale about a young Englishman's confrontation
with the evil Count Dracula. A horror romance as deathless as any vampire, the
blood-curdling tale still continues to hold readers spellbound a century
later.

    I thought it was a really good conversation, always interesting to hear other people's opinion :)

    The version I enjoyed most was a 67 page abridged version I found at the Iroquois library. The annotated 320+ page version was quite the journey. Bwah-ha-ha...

      I found one in the library system that was Illustrated. Very nice and creepy pictures.

    I'm reading an annotated Dracula. Informative, but it doubles the amount of text!

      I suppose that there are many abridged versions which eliminate a good deal of the back story or shorten the sort of meandering prose in which Stoker is capable of displaying. It's really up to each member to decide how involved you want to be with it. This happens with a lot of the Classics like Huck Finn or The Count of Monte Cristo so that people don't get bored or confused with smaller stories within the main story, diversions. We could address that at the meeting, the need for abridgment or the horrible way that these editors destroy a masterpiece.... Which ever you decide is correct

    Mine is annotated too, but is done with links from the original text.

    I have to cancel my RSVP for this event due to my company's softball schedule change. Sorry!
