Successful musician. Just let THAT sink in a bit.
yeah, it's timeless.
It was a full cast of people, all reading from their individual journal entries. And some amazing actors to boot!
Any time someone brought out the brandy.
As far as a rendition of Dracula goes, this is EASILY the best I've ever heard. There was another listener's review who said that it was so amazing that once it was over she felt like applauding.
...i totally agree.
I would listen to this many times. The narrators descriptions were entertaining and keeping the story moving right along in an introduction of Dracula. Refreshing to hear in the way it was written instead of the same old vampire books. Completely original and I loved it.
I've read and listened to other vampire books but none compare to the classic Dracula.
All the narrators were great but I have to say Tim Curry had me going with his quick pace that I was drawn in and didn't want a pause.
I loved this book. The setup for the final events takes a while, but it's worth it, in the end. Don't expect too many appearances by Tim Curry's voiceover parts, by the way.
...but it's a bit disappointing that Tim Curry headlines the cast, yet has the least amount of time actually performing. Only 4-5 VERY short chapters.
Still, this is a phenomenal story featuring a very faith-friendly message. Highly recommended!...just don't expect a lot of Tim Curry.
Great performances, and I really enjoyed the full story. Definitely recommend.
The ending had great dramatic tension.
too long to listen to in one sitting.
This adaptation is great! Dracula was made for audiobook (though that may have not been Bram Stoker's intent). The format of the book (i.e. journal entries, letters, and newspaper clippings) is so well suited for audiobook and the cast does a phenomenal job. I would have liked more Tim Curry but then again, there's never a time I don't want more Tim Curry.
This was free through whispersync for voice and I enjoyed listening to the very talented cast read the journal entries and diaries of the men and women who took on Dracula.
This particular audio version is a masterpiece. The narrators brought life to each character in a way I've not experienced before. I switched between the print and narrated version and found myself listening to it more often than reading. It's simply brilliant.
Narrators were on the mark. I loved the language as well, the descriptions and words are an absolute delight in which to be lost. It was enjoyable to read and listen to the different charater's perspectives as the tale progressed. The way Van Helsing is portrayed by his friends is both charming and quirky. I loved it.
Doctor John Seward was my favorite to listen to, then Mina, then John Harker.
"How Mina got her Groove Back" or "The Lesser-Known Benefits of Holy Crackers"
Get it. Listen to it. Love it.
My only criticism is that I can't understand why a female narrator would try to deepen their voice when reading a male part. Thankfully I've never heard a male narrator try to make his voice sound feminine when reading a female part as it would be equally distracting. However it was still the best narration of an audio book I have ever heard. Truly excellent!
