Dracula classics collection by Brilliance audio

Dracula from the classics collection by Brilliance audio was excellent.
This is one of the few versions that has Stoker's dedication, and the original introduction that begins, 'How these papers have been placed in sequence will be made manifest in the reading of them.'
To my mind, the introduction gives the text a sense of realism that it lacks with out it.
Each narrator gave distinct voices for the characters they narrated. My two personal favorites were Tom Casaletto and Michael Page.
Tom Casaletto's english accent was superb. If I didn't know better, I'd think he was British. You get to here it early on as Mr. Casaletto is the one that narrates the introduction along with the letters, newspaper articles, chapter titles, and the log from Varna to Whitby.
Michael Page's narration of DR. John Seward was the best narration of this version. A great example is at the end of chapter 18 when Mr. Page voices Renfield pleading to be let go. I compared this version to the Naxos audio version and Mr. Page came out the winner by a long shot. Fredric Scadron, Mary Beth Quillen Gregor, and Sheila Hart should not be forgotten either. They narrated Jonathan Harker, Mina Harker, and Lucy Westinra respectively. Each narrator lived their parts as if they were the character.
All in all, a great reading. I highly recommend this version.

Dracula-not like the movie. Better!

I really wasn’t sure what I was listening to when it hit the diaries. I watch the movie so many times that I thought for sure I didn’t get the right book but I enjoyed it a lot and am glad I brought it. It was better then the movie by far.

needs more meat in the end

I love the story, good versus an older evil, and although it held my attention so well, the ending left me desiring more.
A more climactic death of our Dracula was befitting of the character. He has withstood centuries and yet is killed so easily in the end.
