Publisher's Summary

Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, the novel's influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for many theatrical, film, and television interpretations since its publication. Required listening for any fan of the genre!

    "Very enjoyable"

    The narrator did a fantastic job and of course Dracula is a classic for a reason.

    Story
    "Bram Stoker and Peter Batchelor-what a team A+++"
    Where does Dracula rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is so difficult to rank them all, but this one by Bram Stoker, as performed by Mr. Batchelor has to be one of the best


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The number of days that elapsed between the time that Mina was initially infected and the rest found out. How could such bright, knowledgeable individuals, aware of the potential hazard and risk, ignore all of the symptoms of the "infection" and just attribute Mina's lethargy and paleness to "exhaustion". How they never even looked at her neck...


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

    No, too much.


    Any additional comments?

    A classic... well deservedly so.

    "Sound quality is terrible"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    no, although the story is quite good, the performance of the narrator is terrible, he doesn't spell well the words and the volume levels are really low so you can't hear what he is saying in most of the story, it's a pity


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Batchelor’s performances?

    definitely not

    "oh so much blood!"

    this book is a tough read. i read about half before i gave up. thankfully i was able to hear this audio production. still i found it to be somewhat difficult to follow in some parts. maybe the abridged version fixed these dragged out parts. but all in all i was able to get a decent picture of the tale in my mind. all i could think of though while listening was the brilliant mind of Mel Brooks twisting the spooky tale into a comedic romp.

    "The great vampire novel"

    This classic book is excellently narrated, and well worth the time. The narration presents this novel as well as you could hope, making great effort to make this novel pleasing, understandable and easy to follow, not an easy task for an elegant novel written more than a century ago.

    I loved the book and Peter Batchelor is a great story teller. He makes different voices and really brings the characters to life.

    "Great Story but Horrid Voices!!"

    I was looking forward to sinking my teeth into this classic book. Pun intended. And although the actor narrates well and the main cast is intelligible, some of the supporting characters voices are so comically bad that I almost returned the book. I think it's around chapter 9. You'll know it when you hear it.

    I also had to check that Van Helsing was Dutch as he sounded like the Count from Sesame Street. I don't expect the actor to get all the accents spot on obviously but with such an important character I'd expected a bit better.

    But the old man's voice I mentioned earlier is unintelligible and so shrill that it's grating and you may need to take a break from the book.

    Also you'll hear the actor's phone go off more than 50 times throughout the narrative. A really unprofessional recording.

    Great story though.

    Story
    "Spoken in a very monotonous tone."
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is the second audio book in two days that I have discarded without finishing it. More effort should be put into selecting skilled storytellers instead of just using people with pleasant voices, this is, after all the whole point of audio tapes!!


    What could Bram Stoker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The storyline is great, just not the presentation.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator


    What character would you cut from Dracula?

    Story
    "It all started here"
    If you could sum up Dracula in three words, what would they be?

    immersive, strangely believable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dracula?

    The count meeting Jonathan Harker for the first time


    Have you listened to any of Peter Batchelor’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No 1st listen


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

    No, too long for me to tackle in one go. However does warrant extended listening


    Any additional comments?

    I was re visiting a book from many years ago, listening on audible brought a new dimension to the experience, thanks.

    "Well read overall, issues with sound levels"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dracula to be better than the print version?

    As good as the print version - enjoyable to listen to whilst driving.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The characterisation was good throughout, although Van Helsing's accent made it difficult to hear clearly sometimes.


    What does Peter Batchelor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    As above, good characterisation in a suitably atmospheric voice.


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

    No, nice to hear a few chapters whilst driving to work.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable.
