Excellent Vampire Story

Any additional comments?

I didn't read the story, but I don't imagine it could be as engaging as this dramatization. The acting and theatricality were perfectly executed and the suspense was well developed. In terms of plot it's probably typical for the genre, but the distaff characters and the blurred lines between life and afterlife, between love and vampirism make this a great piece.

Tremendous production, fantastic in its delivery!!

My personal favorite audiobook and I constantly listen to them while driving over an hour to college each way. Such a five star quality performance it makes me want to change my previous five star ratings. Never before have I taken such time in enjoying a book. I listened to each of the three chapters many times over and over, not because I had to but because I truly wanted to savor the performances.
The acting is engaging and of the highest caliber. The writing is of the finest literature quality and I am an English major. This one cones with any sort of the most high praise to purchase and enjoy again and again. Do yourself a favor and purchase the ticket, sit in a quiet room if you can, and allow the sounds and words to bathe you in delight.

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.
