Dracula - Bram Stoker : Review

Image
Title: Dracula
Author: Bram Stoker
Series or Standalone: Standalone
Genre: Classic, Horror
Format: Paperback

Publication Date: May 26th 1897

Goodreads Summary: 
When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula with the purchase of a London house, he makes horrifying discoveries about his client and his castle. Soon afterwards, a number of disturbing incidents unfold in England: an unmanned ship is wrecked at Whitby; strange puncture marks appear on a young woman’s neck; and the inmate of a lunatic asylum raves about the imminent arrival of his ‘Master’. In the ensuing battle of wits between the sinister Count Dracula and a determined group of adversaries, Bram Stoker created a masterpiece of the horror genre, probing deeply into questions of human identity and sanity, and illuminating dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire.

Soo, you may or may not know, but my Mum, sister and I are kind of addicted to Friends. We have seen each episode at least 20-30x, but that doesn't stop us from deciding to watch Friends over anything else. I would LOVE to work at Central Perk and even if Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe and Joey weren't there, I think the atmosphere of the Café would be amazing enough. ALSO, it's in New York City so I would be very very happy.
