Intriguing

This classic gothic novella from the late 1800s was perfect for wimps like me who can't manage anything too scary. This is a tale of vampiric behaviour and it's effect on victims. Whilst I knew all along the direction of the storyline, it was intriguing, suitably dark, with a touch of sexual suggestion. The audio was more than straight narration, it was dramatised and I enjoyed this immensely, especially with some famous contributors such as David Tennant.

Very good performance

It loses a star overall simply because it's not a seamless listen. The introduction starts over every chapter, which unfortunately takes you away from the story and back to real awareness. It feels like being abruptly woken from a beautiful nightmare.

Excellent Performances

Any additional comments?

Another excellent production from Audible Originals with a brilliant cast. I really enjoyed this story also and the performances were brilliant particularly Rose Leslie and Phoebe Fox as Laura and Carmilla. Of course David Tennant is always brilliant. Overall a very enjoyable listen and I would highly recommend.

Well Played Full Cast Carmilla

A well formed production of Sheriden Le Fanu's erotic Carmilla is perfectly acted by a full cast with back ground sound so believable you feel you are in that creepy era. The atmosphere is seductive as well as scary. It is one of those audio's you will want to listen to many times
as the mood strikes you.

There is no amateur about this full cast who give it all they have got and who's characters are quite believable. No over or underacting. They blend well together to give an exotic countenance to a scary almost fairy like tale of the female Dracula. Though rather than fangs and long finger nails as per usual the female is 'sexual'. If you can rise above this (no pun intended) and forget the sexual tag, you will enjoy Camilla just like any other Dracula remake.

I am glad to add this production to my collection of 960 audiobooks. This one is in my top 20. I like the eerie atmosphere and gentle feel about the play. You get a good long 3 enjoyable hours to sit back and relax (take the phone off) and go into another world.

An old story told well.

What made the experience of listening to Carmilla the most enjoyable?

The performances from all the cast were excellent.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The age of the original material was always going to limit a vampire tale being told to a modern audience. That being said this was well done and not a let down at all.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Excellent performances from all involved.
