Varney, the Vampyre Vol. 3


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 14 reviews)

This is volume 3 of 3. -- Originally published as a penny dreadful from 1845 until 1847, when it first appeared in book form, Varney the Vampyre is a forerunner to vampire stories such as Dracula, which it heavily influenced.

Flora Bannersworth is attacked in her own room in the middle of the night, and although her attacker is seemingly shot dead, the body is nowhere to be found. The discovery of two small bite marks on Flora's neck leads Mr Marchdale, an old friend of the family, to the conclusion that she was bitten by a vampire. While Flora recovers, her brother Henry and Mr Marchdale begin their hunt for the vampire. Their suspicions soon fall on the mysterious Sir Francis Varney, who has just bought an old abbey near Bannersworth Hall, and who bears an uncanny resemblance to Marmaduke Bannersworth, a long-dead ancestor of the family.

Loved all 3 volumes. great story. but some of the readers have a very thick accent that you can barely understand what they are saying.


(5 stars)

Worth the long read 100% !!!


(5 stars)

237 chapters, 3 book series !!! Well worth the time it takes as it keeps your interest peaked in nearly every chapter !!! You swing between rooting for the poor victims and their families, and then rooting for the vampire to escape captivity !!! Sincere Thank You’s to all the wonderfully dedicated and talented narrators involved in this selection !!! I’m going to save these 3 in my Favorites for another listen, soon !!!
