Superb interpretation of the classic novel. Both narrators manage to convey the various personalities in the book extremely well.
"The original vampire story is still the best."
I can remember reading Dracula for the first time when I was fourteen and it really scared me. This audio version also had the capability to raise the hairs on the back of my neck. Greg Wise's narration is excellent, bringing the characters to life and judging the pace to perfection. If you enjoy the Dracula story, this is a terrific version of the classic tale. But be warned - you may not be able to stop listening!
"The definitive audio edition of Dracula"
After sampling all of the other unabridged audible recordings of the Bram Stoker classic, the Greg Wise recording proved itself to be clearly the best. Greg Wise and Saskia Reeves (unfortunately not credited on the site) give engrossing performances pulling you into Stoker's gothic world as only the best actors can. Wise and Reeves bring the language alive without rushing or, indeed mangling, the words or voices. A steady, confident pace is maintained throughout.
This is the second best download I have ever bought from Audible after James Dickey's Deliverance.
Dracula is one of those books I always felt I should have read. And this is the version that makes Audible worth every penny.
A completely satisfying listening experience.
A true classic and best enjoyed as it was originally written - as various contemporaneous documents written by those characters directly involved.
Its a great book and the readers read it excellently
If The Lord Of The Rings is considered the forerunner of modern fantasy novels, then Dracula has to be the inspiration for all subsequent vampire fiction. Dracula is a deeply atmospheric novel told in the form of letters and journals from the view points of many of the characters. The plot is skillfully constructed and cleverly revealed in teasing chunks that all come together smoothly to form a fascinating and highly enjoyable book.
