This classic gothic novella from the late 1800s was perfect for wimps like me who can't manage anything too scary. This is a tale of vampiric behaviour and it's effect on victims. Whilst I knew all along the direction of the storyline, it was intriguing, suitably dark, with a touch of sexual suggestion. The audio was more than straight narration, it was dramatised and I enjoyed this immensely, especially with some famous contributors such as David Tennant.
