Publisher's Summary

Young lawyer Jonathan Harker journeys to Transylvania to meet with the mysterious Count Dracula only to discover that his nobleman client is a vampire who is thirsty for new blood. After imprisoning Harker in his castle, Dracula travels to England to seduce Jonathan's fiancée, Mina, and the battle against an ineffable evil begins.

Led by philosopher and metaphysician Professor Van Helsing - Dracula's most indomitable adversary - Harker, Mina, and a band of allies unite, determined to confront and destroy the Count before he can escape.

Bram Stoker ingeniously modernized gothic folklore by moving his vampire from traditional castle ruins to modern England. With Dracula, which has been interpreted and dissected by scholars for generations, Stoker changed the vampire novel forever.

Revised edition: Previously published as Dracula, this edition of Dracula (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Good narration, but a little speedy

I won't go over the story because we all know it. Instead, I'm going to take this time to discuss the narrator.
Nick is a great narrator. Each character is well defined and clear.
A personal favorite was Quincy Morris. His female voices with a little high pitched, but they were okay.
However, his reading speed is a little fast in some parts. If you are looking for a good single narrator, give this one a shot.
For four dollars, you definitely aren't being cheated. I know they say you get what you pay for, but in this case this is the exception to that rule.

A wonderful story from various perspectives

The entire story of Dracula is told through the letters and journals of the main characters, giving many perspectives and points of view that are important for adding emotion to the characters. Nick Sandys gives each character their own voice, making it easy to understand who is talking or speaking their mind as the book transitions from one person to the next. Overall, this was a wonderful story to listen to, especially during Halloween time~ :)

Horrible audio

The audio was so horrible that I had to stop. There’s no way I could tolerate a whole book worth of that. No thanks.

Great reading!

I couldn't have gotten through this book without the audio version. It's incredibly long and sometimes long-winded. Listening to the book let me disappear into the story and it's certainly a classic for a reason. The performance is great as you would imagine from a professional reading a classic tale.

An eternal classic

A wonderful, immortal story beautifully narrated by Mr. Sandys. He truly made all characters come alive. Dark, haunting, romantic, and gothic - a true must-read that I would highly recommend to everyone.

Outstanding narration!

I wish I could give this extra points. I'm amazed at the versatility of Mr. Sandy's talent. The story is, of course, classicly exquisite!

Different but Really Good!

Dracula is a classic though vampires have become a regular part of modern day entertainment. Hard to imagine how one felt when reading this book and being introduced to the scary creatures vampires are for the first time! They must have been horrified and sickened. This book is written in an “epistolary” style as if someone gathered all the journals and letters written by individuals involved in the account and collected them to tell the story in their own words. Takes a little while to get used to it. The only thing I disliked about the production is men trying to do female voices. Very annoying. That said, this production keeps the listener interested by distinct voices and accents for each character. Listen and enjoy!

Pretty Ridiculous

I found this book liked to wander between "oh this is good" and "I'm about to vomit. Please make the 19th century asshats shutup!" It always happens when they are in a group of greater than 3 people. They go on a compliment-a-thon

The narrator does pretty well for everyone except the American. However, the American doesn't end up being over complimentary so I ended up liking him more.

Bram shined when he got a character off to himself or herself. I liked the format. How he put together the journals and letters to weave a story.

Not great but couldn't stop so that something.
