This book is boring. The writing is bad, I would say excruciatingly bad. I do not think it is simply because it is an old book. The Count of Monte Cristo was written about the same time, I believe. That book doesn't have a dull moment. Don Quixote was published in 1605, and it reads like a gem even in translation. The writing in this book is bad, the characters flat and the descriptions overly detailed. The format (diary entries) just does not work with every moment of every single day recorded in perfect detail.
A not about the narration - while I liked the other voices, Lucy was always speaking in a sort of whisper, like a girl too good to be true. It does get very annoying very quickly.
Ok so Dracula is a classic book but its a classic book in the sense that Emma and Sense and Sensibility are classic books. If you are into that type of long winded conversation and old school manners then this will be perfect. A very strong start and end but lags a lot in the middle. That said it was a book ahead of its time and I did very much enjoy many parts of it.
Very entertaining right down to the last word. The narrators were on point.
Well done Audible!
More Tim Curry! Not nearly enough was narrated by him. 'Dracula' is a product of its time so even though the beginning of the boom is fantastic the female characters (at no fault of the actresses) are less than inspiring. However, still a classic.
I loved the actors in this classic book. It helped me keep all the different perspectives straight. I also enjoyed how it was told through letters and diary entries. It gave you insight into each character's experience. Great listen!!!
