Some of the parchment pages were the color of cream, thick and substantial, made to last many, many lifetimes. Other pages were thin and desiccated, positively yellow from age, and crackled alarmingly as Van Richten turned them over. There were no ornate illuminations, no fussy borders, only lines of plain text in hard black ink. The flowing handwriting was a bit difficult to follow at first; the writer's style of calligraphy had not been in common use for 300 years. No table of contents, but from the dates it looked to be some kind of history. He turned to the first page and read:
I, Strahd, Lord of Barovia, well aware certain events of my reign have been desperately misunderstood by those who are better at garbling history than recording it, hereby set down an exact record of those events, that the truth may at last be known....
He caught his breath. By all the good gods, a personal journal?

I don't know. I haven't read the print version.
Brad Stoker's Dracula unsurprisingly
In this book, the moment Strahd finds Tatianna's killer and condemns him to a nightmarish death.
The same as the book's undertitle, because it mostly just explores how Strahd became a vampire and how it was being an vampire.
This book is good, but the second book is even better. It's worth listening to this just to be able to listen to the sequel.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
