Never has the journey and quest of these poor souls been so vividly portrayed. It is the greatest performance of Dracula I have ever attended.
It is a full cast and usually that is a very crowded feeling when listening, but the way this book is written it works beautifully. Each character's journal entry is read by a different cast member and solely in their voice. It makes it truly feel as all these lives are sitting on the precipice of darkness together.
If you have tried and failed to get through the book fully, as I have, or just love the story this is a great way to experience the adventure. It is more than some Witty banter of Van Helsing and Dracula before he destroys the monster like some many movies have dissolved into. There is great work both physically and mentally by several to discover the motive and track down the monster. A great pulp adventure if ever there was and I am not sure why it isn't presented more as such.
A must read for all
The story is a classic and everyone should know it but it is brought to life my the cast of this particular audiobook. Their performance is authentic and passionate. Loved loved loved it
I have read this before and remembered it fondly, but this reading brought a new appreciation for the unique way the novel was written. This helped me remember how much I have always enjoyed being read to. The cast was convincing and the pace of the story was perfect. I was in maddening suspense during sections of the book when I (literally) begged the narrator to come to the point of relief. I highly recommend this reading and story!
Loved it! Although fiction, the story dramatically highlights the profound courage that men and women can summon to safeguard a love one and the finite nature of humanity. Pity for a terribly frightening and lethal foe is but one of the many examples of human traits illustrated herein, despite our numerous faults, that makes us worth dying for.
