Summary

Although myths about vampires had existed since ancient times, Bram Stoker's Dracula is considered by many to be the work that launched the vampire into the human lexicon, and is undoubtedly the most popular and well-known vampire story ever written. Stoker's inspirations for Count Dracula are heavily debated, but most agree that Dracula was based in part on the historical figure of Vlad the Impaler, a fifteenth-century Romanian ruler known for his indiscriminate brutality, which included a taste for impaling people alive on wooden spikes and watching them die in slow agony.

Badly Edited version

Great book, I have read it before, but wanted to re-read quickly and therefore decided to buy this (cheaper) audio version. Whilst Roger Watson's narration was quite good - his Dracular was excellent - the editing was very poor. On too many occasions sentences were re-read and the original mistakes were left in. Also Quincey, who was an American, started with an American accent but half way through the reading Lord Arthur Holmwood some how acquired the American accent and Quincey became English! This lack of "proof listening" rather spoils this version. Otherwise it would have been excellent value for money for this classic.

Pay the price for a better narrator

The story...obviously a classic. The narrator...well, as mentioned in another review, as he fades out (I assume for dramatic effect), it is incredibly difficult to hear him. There are several spots with duplicated recording, but the greatest problem, by far is the narrator's mixing up Quincy and Arthur. At the beginning he give Quincy a wrangley American voice and then forever after uses that voice for British born Arthur!!!! It was very annoying. But, you do get what you pay for....

Dracula done very well.

Would you listen to Dracula [Cherry Hill Edition] again? Why?

Probably wouldn't listen to it again. So many books, so little time!

Have you listened to any of Roger Watson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I had not previously, but would choose a book narrated by him in the future.

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

Yes.
