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.

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.
