    This was a super slow read because the story is so BORING. The adaptation really helped me get through a story I'd always wanted to experience. The artwork is so beautiful.

    I cannot imagine fans of Bram Stoker's original Dracula to be disappointed by this faithful manga version of the classic vampire tale. From Jonathan Harker's growing horror at his employer's identity to the death of sweet, innocent Lucy Westenra to the alliance cobbled together by Van Helsing, it's all here, made even better with the detailed black and white illustrations. Readers will gasp as a stake is driven into Lucy's heart and shudder at poor Renfield's fondness for spiders and flies.

Readers will gasp as a stake is driven into Lucy's heart and shudder at poor Renfield's fondness for spiders and flies. As good and as timeless as the original story is, the images are sure to gain new followers for this work. I appreciated having various fonts and type faces used for various characters as they wrote letters, penned their thoughts in journals, or dictated thoughts. As might be expected when something is translated by those whose first language is not English, there are some odd phrasings and subject/verb agreement issues, but most readers will be able to move through the narrative swiftly without missing a beat even with these mistakes. Readers unfamiliar with manga need not worry about not knowing how to read this sort of material since there are brief instructions explaining how to do so in the back of the book. Well, really, it would be considered the front of the book since it's manga, after all. After reading this book, many readers won't be able to sleep without some garlic and a cross nearby.

    Actually a pretty solid adaptation. It sticks close to the original, as every book in this series does, and the manga style is much more restrained here than it has been in other entries in the series. No improbably manga hair, for anybody! I was particularly happy with Dracula's character design, which sticks close to the book's descriptions of him and makes him look menacing without being grotesque.

It's interesting that they chose to stick with the format of the original book, which is mostly made up of books and journal entries. There's an attempt to give the characters distinct fonts, but they aren't quite distinct enough (Mina and Jonathan's are very similar) and the key to whose font is what is, oddly, at the end of the book.

    A solid manga adaptation of Bram Stoker's sensational horror novel Dracula, this version highlights the original's epistolary style by having each character's individual story presented with different handwriting and/or fonts. An abridged text, this version still manages to capture the suspense and the action of the original, and the manga style is particularly well suited to the story's fantastic transformations (vampires into bats, mist) and dramatic violence.

Some confusing transitions and plot lines are the result of the abridgment, but the overall story is well-drawn and convincingly told.

    3.5 stars. Stays closer to the original novel than most adaptations (Dracula is scarier and more sinister that way, not a romantic hero/antihero), and has nice artwork. The epistolary nature of the work can get a bit confusing with all the voice-switches, but the creators went to the trouble of giving every character their own font ('handwriting') to try to clarify who was narrating when. A good adaptation for anyone who is interested in reading the original work but doesn't have the patience to 3.5 stars.

    Order date: April 12, 2018 Arrival date: October 21, 2019. I almost gave up on this adaptation, even if I wanted so much to read it. Yeah, I've never read the original novel and I've never watched one of the movie they made about Dracula. I read this novel in one sitting on the train, on my way to Europe's biggest comic con in Lucca. It was a bit hard to follow, to be honest, but the authors did a wonderful job as usual. I adore the Manga Classics collection. I love the art and the way the adaptor Order date: April 12, 2018 Arrival date: October 21, 2019.

The story was a surprise: I didn't know Stoker inserted so many modern inventions in his work. This adaptation kind of made me want to read the novel. But first... I have to read A Midsummer Night's Dream... :-)

    This is one of the most accurate adaptations of the original novel I have ever had the joy to read. You can tell that the story has been taken and transformed to the manga version with much love, whilst still capturing the very essence of the book. The art is pretty with the characters rendered nicely.

    A VERY faithful adaptation on the Stroker novel. Reading in the Manga form takes some getting used to. But this is very well done. (Even if Van Hesling looks like the comic book J.J.J. from the Spider-Man comics.)

    Good adaptation although there were a few panels where the line drawing seemed to be unfinished...I know it took a while to get this published and I wonder if the artwork was rushed at the end.

    Finally found a classic in manga that I though was done well.

    A decent read and a very faithful adaptation of the novel. The ending felt very abrupt and anti-climatic for me.
