Editorial Reviews

This piece of gothic horror from Darcula author Bram Stoker is ingeniously told through a collection of documents: letters, newspaper clippings, a will… This fragmented style gives the audiobook, as performed by Kevin T. Collins, the feeling of an actual record recently unearthed - and unearthly! Concerning the – now-classic - trope of a young man who must live in his uncle’s spooky estate in order to inherit it, the story develops to involve a spectral woman who visits him and whom he falls in love with, as well as guns, kidnappings, and battle. The majority of the accounts come from the young man’s perspective and Collins lends them a concentrated dramatic tenor that makes this a horrific and exciting pause-resister.

Publisher's Summary

Was it a living woman that stood by his side, or a dead body reanimated for the time or the occasion in some strange manner?

a real snoozefest!

I really liked Dracula and settled down for a nice listen. But instead found that I just couldn't keep listening to this minutely detailed account of an inheritance or something without nodding off. I am not sure if I will try to finish the book or admit defeat and try something a little more lively perhaps.
