Audible Editor Reviews

Followers of the popular vampire literary and film interpretations of recent years might be blasé about another performance of the exquisitely written novel that started it all. But listening to this full-cast performance turns out to be remarkably suspenseful and chilling. The superlative cast lends this powerful production the diversity that is required by the structure of the novel, which includes journal entries and letters. Each actor employs various accents, infusing into the characters vibrant emphasis, urgency, and dread. The famed vampire Count Dracula leaves a swath of exsanguinated bodies in his wake as he attempts to relocate from Transylvania to England in 1897, stalked by the brave Van Helsing.

Publisher's Summary

Audie Award, Distinguished Achievement in Production, 2013

Audie Award, Multi-voiced Performance, 2013

Audie Award Nominee, Classic, 2013

Because of the widespread awareness of the story of the evil Transylvanian count and the success of numerous film adaptations that have been created over the years, 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.

This production of Dracula is presented by what is possibly the best assemblage of narrating talent ever for one audiobook: Emmy Award nominees Alan Cumming and Tim Curry plus an all-star cast of Audie award-winners Simon Vance (The Millenium Trilogy), Katherine Kellgren (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), Susan Duerden (The Tiger’s Wife), John Lee (Supergods) and customer favorites Graeme Malcolm (Skippy Dies), Steven Crossley (The Oxford Time Travel series), Simon Prebble (The Baroque Cycle), James Adams (Letters to a Young Contrarian), Nicola Barber (The Rose Garden), Victor Villar-Hauser (Fun Inc.), and Marc Vietor (1Q84). These stellar narrators have been cast as follows:

Alan Cumming as Dr. Seward
Simon Vance as Jonathan Harker
Katy Kellgren as Mina Murray/Harker
Susan Duerden as Lucy Westenra
Tim Curry as Van Helsing
Graeme Malcolm as Dailygraph correspondent
Steven Crossley as Zookeeper’s account and reporter
Simon Prebble as Varna
James Adams as Patrick Hennessey
Nicola Barber as Sister Agatha
Victor Villar-Hauser as Arthur Holmwood
Marc Vietor as Quincey Morris
John Lee as Introductory paragraph, various letters

    "Classic story performed well"
    Would you listen to Dracula [Audible Edition] again? Why?

    This is an excellent performance of Dracula. The actors brought it to life in a way a single narrator could not. The story is a classic, and coupled with the performance could be a book I listen to often.


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

    I have listened to Alan Cumming's rendition of Macbeth, which wasn't as good, probably because the listener didn't have complementary voices and perspectives to listen to.

    "Great"

    It was a good cast that read the book and I loved the story. I read it and high school and the cast made it come alive more than when I read it. It also brought out details that I forgot we're on the book

    If you're interested in the original Dracula, this is the version you want. Story is a bit thin at times but the performances are excellent.

    This is a fabulous version of the book. While I was little tired of the story about 3/4 of the way through and wished it had been shorter, the narration kept me going.

    "Halloween Treat"

    I listened to this the week before Halloween, and it really set the mood for the season. It features my two favorite Audible narrators: Simon Vance and Katherine Kellgren. The story is a classic, and is the foundation for all modern horror books. It's also a classy book lacking the gross or unnecessary over-the-top descriptions of sex or violence so common in modern books that often serve as a mask for a lack of creativity...yet, this book is far from passive. This is well-worth reading.
