    "Great work"

    Charming and wonderful peace of work. A little soft background music at times could have spiced up the environment.

    Story
    "My, oh, my, Greg Wise!"

    Read from February 19 to March 03, 2012

    Began audiobook 2/19. Switched to e-book 2/22. While Greg Wise's performance (5 stars) of the audio version is spectacular, I ended up switching to reading this because there was so much stuff I wanted to skim over to get to the good parts. Stopped reading about halfway through (after the group comes together). Lost interest at that point, mostly because Dracula hadn't been around for quite some time and it got boring. 3 stars.

    Story
    "Glad to have finally gotten around to reading this"

    I really enjoy the classics in general - for some reason I had not yet gotten around to reading this one. I was very happy with the journey. It was great to see the birth of many of the myths and legends that pervade modern media.

    The book is written through letters and journal entries which makes the story a bit choppy but I was able to get used to it after awhile.

    "Captivatingly toothy"

    I have really enjoyed listening to this 1st part of the book, it has been great seeing how the tale develops. 90% of it is good listening, and the other 10% is not very compelling but relavent to the story line so needs listening to. My friend thoroughly enjoyed it too and is listening to it a second time.

    "Kind of boring"

    I missed reading this book while growing up, so I was eager to listen to it. Since it was sort of the benchmark for the Vampire books, I guess I expected something more. I was bored, bored, bored. I never actually cared about any of the characters,and I was thrilled when it was over. Sorry.

    "Simply horrid."

    I generally enjoy vampire lore: after having a listen to this version (The first time have been through Dracula of any version) I confess myself struggling to put this book into a frame. Certainly one has to take the historical context in to consideration; even so, it was BORING. The narrator's version of Van Helsing was annoying at best. I had to force myself to even finish it. The ending was a huge let down. The modern vampire has a biology/gene base, where as this has an old world religious perspective. It is hard to make the jump. If there is any good to this, it is that of having the discipline to finish it and purely for the "I did it" factor. Nothing to listen to hear folks - Move along... move along.

    "Classic"

    A true classic and best enjoyed as it was originally written - as various contemporaneous documents written by those characters directly involved.

    Story
    "Story that goes bump in the night....."

    Beware of listening to this late at night and alone......Some genuinely creepy tense moments. The story is told via diary extracts or letters from different characters. These are cleverly narrated by either a male (Greg Wise) or female (Saskia Reeves) voice as applicable. They are both excellent narrators. The first part where Jonathan Harker is staying at Count Dracula's castle is cleverly done, the tension grows to an almost unbearable point, then it passes to delicately female letters, providing light relief. I enjoy this was of writing, showing elements of each persons character by allowing them to speak.

    It is never explained why Van Helsing knows about how to kill vampires, or why each 'method' would work, so a little knowledge about the general idea behind this (easily obtained now this genre is so popular) helps. This is definitely a 'classic' novel, ie beautifully written, lovely aged vocabulary that modern books don't have, but will not be to everyone's taste due to the subject matter. There were only one or two points where I wanted to shout out - being a Christian I did not agree with the idea that God would turn his back on anyone tarnished by a vampire - but as the whole thing is made up it didn't matter! Just annoyed that it portrayed the God I know to be all loving in a bad light.
