Dracula (version 5)


Read by Peter John Keeble

(4.3 stars; 9 reviews)

Dracula as written by Bram Stoker in 1897 was not the first depiction of vampires and other such creatures, Gothic horror stories had been around since the early part of the century. The story related by Bram Stoker is told in an epistolary fashion utilising the journals and diaries of the main protagonists. The storyline is relatively simple; Dracula the longest living and most evil of vampires comes to England with a view to increasing the vampire population of the country. He is thwarted by five friends and driven back to his castle in Transylvania. It is not the book itself, which by the way is a good horror story, it is the portrayal of Dracula that gripped the imagination of the populous and in particular the entertainment industry. As such “Count Dracula” has become an iconic figure for over 100 years. Numerous world wide interpretations and portrayals both on stage, Cinema, and television have made Dracula synonymous with the undead and all that is evil. - Summary by Peter Keeble (16 hr 26 min)

Reviews

great book.


(3 stars)

I started listening to this story on spotify, the reader hadn't finished recording it so I came here to finish the last chapters. sadly I had been spoiled by the spotify versions trerreaderversions reader, this ones recording wasn't of a grwat quality and the reader read a bit of a 'get it over with' way that reminds me of school kids being forced to read in English lessons. I found it a little difficult to distinguish between the different characters speaking. otherwise it was a great book. excellent classic story but its the sound quality that let it down the most.


(5 stars)

the readers voice reminds me of someone. i dont know who but it's like a strangers voice that feels familiar. one of my favorite books. very excited to listen through the day 😊

A classic!
