Publisher's Summary

Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, the novel's influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for many theatrical, film, and television interpretations since its publication. Required listening for any fan of the genre!

    "Great Story but Horrid Voices!!"

    I was looking forward to sinking my teeth into this classic book. Pun intended. And although the actor narrates well and the main cast is intelligible, some of the supporting characters voices are so comically bad that I almost returned the book. I think it's around chapter 9. You'll know it when you hear it.

    I also had to check that Van Helsing was Dutch as he sounded like the Count from Sesame Street. I don't expect the actor to get all the accents spot on obviously but with such an important character I'd expected a bit better.

    But the old man's voice I mentioned earlier is unintelligible and so shrill that it's grating and you may need to take a break from the book.

    Also you'll hear the actor's phone go off more than 50 times throughout the narrative. A really unprofessional recording.

    Great story though.

    "AWFUL narration"

    Read this before and love the story its a true classic but please get a different version as this narrator is truly awful! most of the main characters were completely unintelligible and the accents were completely off (his northern accent sound like a scottish/somerset mix).

    Story
    "Spoken in a very monotonous tone."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is the second audio book in two days that I have discarded without finishing it. More effort should be put into selecting skilled storytellers instead of just using people with pleasant voices, this is, after all the whole point of audio tapes!!


    What could Bram Stoker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The storyline is great, just not the presentation.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator


    What character would you cut from Dracula?

    Story
    "It all started here"
    If you could sum up Dracula in three words, what would they be?

    immersive, strangely believable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dracula?

    The count meeting Jonathan Harker for the first time


    Have you listened to any of Peter Batchelor’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No 1st listen


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, too long for me to tackle in one go. However does warrant extended listening


    Any additional comments?

    I was re visiting a book from many years ago, listening on audible brought a new dimension to the experience, thanks.

    "Well read overall, issues with sound levels"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dracula to be better than the print version?

    As good as the print version - enjoyable to listen to whilst driving.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The characterisation was good throughout, although Van Helsing's accent made it difficult to hear clearly sometimes.


    What does Peter Batchelor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    As above, good characterisation in a suitably atmospheric voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, nice to hear a few chapters whilst driving to work.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable.

    "Do not purchase"

    This version omits one of the key moments of the story. I assume it is edited out for it's lurid nature. It is quite key to the story and it's omission is a travesty.

    Story
    "A very touchy-feely book."

    This was still fun and I can see how it started a lot of the genre, but one must remember that this is first and foremost not a horror boo, but a romantic book design for the lurid market of the mostly female readership in the late 19th century. About 1/3 of the book is spent in the characters pledging undying love and loyalty to each other and crying on each other shoulders. Very quick conclusion and short bursts of unexploited action. This book is at best a starting place for the imagination. But still a worthwhile read at one and a half times the reading speed if you're curious about how the vampire thing all started.

    I couldn't get into this book. it's a classic, I know, but it moves too slow and much of the dialog have nothing to do with advancing the story or character building. I had to stop half way through. it's the only audiobook I have not finushed.
