    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.

    N. Houghton says: "Gothic Horror Never Sounded So Good"
    "Just Horrible."

    What disappointed you about Dracula?

    As a kid I loved Dracula movies because they were very scary. This book did not have any scary parts. I also thought the plot would have new twists and turns but it was the same old story and characters but much more boring.Hearing this book was like eating a sandpaper sandwich. Don't waste your time or money


    What could Bram Stoker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Add some new plots and make it scary like the old dracula books


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Very Boring read


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All of the above
