I feel the audio version makes the characters truly alive!!! When I read a book, I
Alan Cumming's Dr. Seward and Katherine Kellgren's portrayal of Mina Harker.
They brought this characters to life. I felt I was experiencing the story first hand with all it's horror and nuances.
I listen in my car because my commute is long. I had to force myself to turn off the car and get into work. I didn't want to stop listening!!!
I love Oberon!
When the dog asked for a passel of French Poodles in exchange for helping Atticus! Serious, laugh out loud hysterics in the car!
It was read well BUT it was dry. Mr. Gardner does poorly in reading women's parts. It was very dry. If this is ever redone, a cast would be the way to go. Because there are so many special characters, having each have their own reader/actor would be the best. I realize that could be unwieldy but it would serve the narrative better. Just as long as Molly Ringwald isn't one of them. As we have seen, many books are the better read by rather large cast(like Dune and The Help).
