I decided to listen to this for a couple of reasons... 1) I had not read the book since High school (over 30 years ago) and had seen several of the movie adaptations, and always felt like they missed something, and 2) who could resist this format with the multiple voices giving the book new life! Did not disappoint. Had to remind myself a couple of times of the time period this book was written in, and think about how creepy this book would have been to that audience. But somewhere about 2/3rds through the book shifts, and it really reads more like a romance novel, where dashing swains are fighting to save the heroine's life. Did someone read Stokers novel and remind him that it was a bit too dark for the ladies? Ending feels a little rushed, but still a wonderful way to hear the novel, and would argue that this version would be a better way to teach the novel than actually reading it.
