    "Decent, but I wouldn't get this as an audiobook"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. It was entertaining, and relatively short. If it were longer my answer would be different. Although the novel was entertaining, it wasn't necessarily a quality piece.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tom Holland? Why or why not?

    Maybe, it depends on the content and reviews. I wouldn't buy the sequel to this book though.


    What does Richard E. Grant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was great at portraying the characters. He did a great job with Polidori.


    Could you see Lord of the Dead the Secret History of Byron being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I suppose it could, but it probably wouldn't do very well. Or maybe it would; bad movies become blockbuster hits inexplicably. With that in mind I could see Robert Pattinson as Byron, Kristen Stewart as Caroline Lamb, Michael Cera as Polidori.


    Any additional comments?

    Try to get this one at the library, or find a used copy. It's worth reading if you're really into Byron and his connection to vampires (fictionally of course). But if you take your Romantics seriously, skip it.
