Dracula is, of course, a classic horror/fantasy novel. As a younger person I tried to read this book, but my imagination was too good and I couldn't finish it, it was too scary! As a much older person I was able to listen to it and enjoyed it too!!! I was completely asbsorbed by the story and was always keen to listen to the next installment (whilst gardening!). The reader , Robert Whitfield, was excellent and easy to listen to, which is important especially with a long book. Definitely recommend.
I've been listening to many of the classics I should have read in high school and college, but somehow missed. Dracula is one of them. I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did. I really liked how the novel was a compilation of diary and journal entries, memoranda, and newspaper articles. Bram Stoker's writing and description of the Count and his castle and the evil that surrounded them is chilling even today.

I've re-read Dracula many times over the years and always enjoyed it, so I was delighted to find that one of my favorite audiobook readers had done an unabridged version. Listening to it was a new experience, as so many small details become noticeable when heard, and I became more aware of the structure of the story than I had been before. While Van Helsing's broken English was sometimes more funny than Stoker may have intended, overall I thought all of the characterizations held up well, and despite knowing the story backwards and forwards I found myself getting teary once or twice. Definitely recommended!
