Was The Vampire: A Casebook worth the listening time?
The content is utterly fascinating, and this is coming from someone who doesn't have much interest in vampires and horror in general. Unfortunately, the narration is monotone and makes it difficult to focus, so I actually listened to it twice because I'm sure I missed something the first time.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Marguerite Gavin?
Anyone, really. She was so terrible, cutting bits out from the original text which she clearly didn't want to read, skimming over terms without bothering to read out their English counterparts, misreading certain words (yes, misreading), being monotone, and so dull. There were parts when she was reading when I thought she was about to start laughing at what she was saying, that's how ridiculous the narration was. Furthermore, I felt like she was trying to speedread her way through the text as quickly as possible, without inflection or pause. Literally the worst narrator I've had to listen to, and a real shame too, because the content was a pleasure to read.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I think the topic and text was good but I just could not listen to the reader, I managed the first few chapters before returning it. I plan to buy for my kindle.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?
Not easy to listen too, very mono tone and dry.
