What an incredible performance! Alan Cumming and Tim Curry! Not to mention Katy Kellgren. Just incredible.
Also, I have always loved the story. Never could understand why Hollywood has never tried to get it right. There's a lot of tension there. Could it be because "darling Miss Mina" is too strong a female character?
This performance is incredible the way it just grabs you and doesn't let go. Thank you Audible!
The all-star cast of readers. I LOVED listening to Alan Cumming (I adore him) and Tim Curry reading this classic.
Very enjoyable. Highly recommend!
Tim Curry as Van Helsing! Amazing.
Mina - the narrator really captured the complex and conflicted woman
Overall a wonderful telling of Dracula. I appreciate it so much more now as an adult. The different narrators were all wonderful and really captured the voices.
I read this books many years ago, when I was a teenager. I was surprised that the story has held up so well after all these years. The structure lends itself nicely to having multiple narrators, all of whom did an excellent job. Even in this age of vampires all over movies and television, this book is suspenseful and scary. I really enjoyed it.
Best Audiobook Ever
Being narrated by a full cast made the audiobook unique, exciting, and easy to follow.
Great story with a great narration. The best I have listened to. The structure of the story begs to be read by a full cast and this does not disappoint. Definitely recommend!
Yes, very entertaining.
I found lessons of life in this classic that I never preceived from the movie
It is hard to select only one Character, they were all brought to life thru the narrators. I felt type casting was perfect
Yes; however, that luxury is not avalable to me but I must say the story, context and mystery was not lost due to multi settings.
The voice acting. Katy Kellgren as Mina is fantastic.
Van Helsing. He is intelligent and brave. He delivers a plausible mix of the occult and intellectual. Tim Curry does a fine job.
Yes. Tim Curry does a fine job here, but does not get much opportunity to shine.
Van Helsing. I am partial to the intellectual hero of the story.
It's a detective, horror, adventure story all rolled up into one. Very exciting.
The story was really suspensful. Yes I knew the plot but hearing it from the charactors perspective really made it quite heart pounding.
I recently listened to Heart of Darkness and again the narration took an old story , that I felt I knew, to a different place.
Yes, I would listen to it again. I like the fact that they took the time to try and sound like whoever was speaking, for instance, if Mina was writing, she would try to make Van Helsing sound just like him.
Yes - so entertaining especially compared to other "classics". This version never gets dull. I listened on Christmas day for 7 hours straight! Was completely enthralled.
I quite enjoyed the full cast of narrators. With one exception: Depending on who was recounting Van Hellsing's, he was made to sound German, Romanian or Russian. That was annoying. But other than that the narrators each gave their characters the appropriate intonation and emotion. It was lovely.
