Publisher's Summary

Dracula is the seminal gothic horror novel of its time as Bram Stoker introduced the world to the legendary vampire Count Dracula.
Published in 1897 and told through a series of diary entries and letters, the story journeys into the dark world of Count Dracula through the eyes of several different narrators. The novel explores many themes, the role of women in Victorian culture, conventional and conservative sexuality, immigration, colonialism, post colonialism and folklore. Irish author Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847 - 1912) was writer of novels and short stories. He was also the personal assistant of the actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned.

It's a man's world?

I have very much enjoyed listening to all three volumes of this narration. I have to point out several issues I have with the narrator. One jarring issue was listening to his voice as Van Helsing and making him sound just like Arnold Schwarzenegger rather than a Dutchman.He was also poorly convincing when he narrated the women's voices. Generally there was just not enough of a tonal difference between the characters to make it clear, while listening, who was the subject speaking.

Good book, done well...

Dracula is by far one of my favorite vampire novels and I've listened to numerous audio book versions of the novel. This would be listed as one of the best audio book adaptations I've listened to so far. It is also the first audio book I have ever listened to where you can hear the narrator do more than just read the book. The occurrences are faint and don't distract from the reading, but are present periodically throughout the reading.
