I have listened to this book numerous times. There is a complexity in this one, I've not found in others. Some mysteries are not very dimensional but the truly best mysteries evoke a time, a place and well-drawn characters facing themselves and their own demons. This book succeeds with all flags flying.
The Vampire Archives will delight you, especially if you're interested in the history of the vampire story.
This is a very comprehensive compilation that spans across cultures and draws from the perspective of varied writers. I was enchanted by nearly every story and I found the biographical material that precedes each writer's work very engaging and informative.
Having seen the movie adaptation first, I found listening to the book to be intriguing. It was helpful to experience the characters as their brilliant author had first conceived them and by extension it was rewarding to compare this to the movie screenplay, thereby understanding how a movie is built from the bones of a book.
Very recommended as there were even more laughs than I'd anticipated...
