Dracula by Bram Stoker, 454 pages
The novel begins when a young English lawyer, Jonathan Harker, visits Count Dracula at his castle in Transylvania in order to complete a real estate transaction. While there he discovers the diabolical intent of the Count.
Back in England, it falls to Professor Van Helsing, along with a handful of other heroes, including Jonathon and his fiancée, Mina, to stop the vampire.
I listened to the book and enjoyed this very proper Victorian horror story. I am not typically of fan of horror but the story is told in such flowery and proper English that I couldn't help but get a kick out of it.
