Dracula

Dracula by Bram Stoker
By: (1847-1912)

Bram Stoker did not invent the vampire story, but he popularized it with his classic 1897 novel. In form Dracula is an epistolary novel, told through a series of journal entries, letters, newspaper articles, and telegrams. It begins with lawyer Jonathan Harker's perilous journey to Castle Dracula in Transylvania, and chronicles the vampire's invasion of England, where he preys upon the lovely Lucy Westenra and Harker's fiancee, Mina. Harker and Mina join forces with lunatic asylum proprieter Dr. Seward, Lucy's fiance Arthur Holmwood, Texas man of action Quincey Morris, and Dutch vampire hunter Dr. Van Helsing to try and defeat their powerful adversary.

A Mystery Story

1897 edition

How these papers have been placed in sequence will be made manifest in the reading of them. All needless matters have been eliminated, so that a history almost at variance with the possibilities of latter day belief may stand forth as simple fact. There is throughout no statement of past things wherein memory may err, for all the records chosen are exactly contemporary, given from the standpoints and within the range of knowledge of those who made them.

Reviews (Rated: 5 Stars - 10 reviews)

Reviewer: - February 4, 2014
Subject: Multiple narrators used effectively
The use of different narrators to read each character (even though Dracula is not a play) was a risky move, and it worked very well. I have to admit I did not enjoy the story itself nearly as much as I was expecting, as I was disappointed by the use of a what seemed to be a few cheap literary devices. However, I'm sure that more discerning critics than myself would disagree.

The reader MB spoiled the whole recording. Apart from this I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for this book. 3 stars only because of the distracting voice of MB. I apologize to the specific reader in advance but I had to point it out!

Anyone else think Dr. Seward and Van Helsing sounded like Yoda?

Subject: Bloody wonderful
Aside from the apparently universally disliked voice acting of MB (though beggars can't be choosers, if I didn't have speech disfluency that would make my reading even more disliked I would volunteer myself to reread) this was rather stupendously done.

Subject: Harher
I think this is an excellent book. Though I too have a problem with Harker. The voice is too feminine and sounds wet like the reader's mouth is full of saliva.

Subject: Fantastic novel
It's testament to Bram Stoker's writing that despite creating a genre of it's own that has been remixed umpteenth times, this book never fails to bore nor sound too familiar. The voice acting is excellent. The standout is the reader who plays Dr Seward. He is the main narrator and also does very good voice impressions for multiple characters.

My first ever audio-book reading! I have been wanting to read this for such a long time and have taken to listening to this at work. The voice acting is really good for all but Johnathan Harker. There was a foreboding sense of dread that even Dracula could not match when it was made apparent that I would have to listen to that individual cast member again. Great read and a dark, interesting insight on Vampires. Will certainly recommend this to anyone inclined to listen.
