    The modern audience hasn't had a chance to truly appreciate the unknowing dread that readers would have felt when reading Bram Stoker's original 1897 manuscript. Most modern productions employ campiness or sound effects to try to bring back that gothic tension, but we've tried something different. By returning to Stoker's original storytelling structure - a series of letters and journal entries voiced by Jonathan Harker, Dr. Van Helsing, and other characters - with an all-star cast of narrators, we've sought to recapture its originally intended horror and power.

    I like the story, Dracula movies, etc. I didn't care for many of the narrators. The women's voices in particular grated on me, I finally just stopped listening.

    It is 1845. New York City forms its first police force. The great potato famine hits Ireland. These two seemingly disparate events will change New York City. Forever.... Timothy Wilde tends bar near the Exchange, fantasizing about the day he has enough money to win the girl of his dreams. But when his dreams literally incinerate in a fire devastating downtown Manhattan, he finds himself disfigured, unemployed, and homeless. His older brother obtains Timothy a job in the newly minted NYPD, but he is highly skeptical of this new "police force".

    I REALLY like Steven Boyer. His characters are not over the top, I could really visualize each one. The story reminds me of Gangs of New York but I enjoyed it. I will purchase other books that Mr. Boyer narrarates.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I was in grade school when Kennedy died and through the years we have heard all kinds of stories. This is so informative and I am a Bill O'Reilly fan anyway. It has me spellbound with the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm still listening but I like the facts I never heard. Lee Harvey Oswald's journal...Jackie a chain smoker...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    (903)

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you have never read a Scarpetta story, this might be great for you.


    What was most disappointing about Patricia Cornwell’s story?

    I love the Scarpetta series, LOVE (even have the cookbook) but the last 4 or 5 books have been a big waste of time and money. I won't be purchasing any more. The story lines are predictable, the characters have no where to grow. Very sad.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Burton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to this performer but I did like her very much.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Just the performer.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this website! I often travel in my vehicle and these books are wonderful.
