Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula with the purchase of a London house, he makes a series of horrific discoveries about his client. Soon afterwards, various bizarre incidents unfold in England: an apparently unmanned ship is wrecked off the coast of Whitby, a young woman discovers strange puncture marks on her neck and the inmate of a lunatic asylum raves about the 'Master' and his imminent arrival. 

In Dracula, Bram Stoker created one of the great masterpieces of the horror genre, brilliantly evoking a nightmare world of vampires and vampire hunters and also illuminating the dark corners of Victorian sexuality and desire.

Absolutely incredible

This is one of my favourite books of all time. I can picture each and every scene and character so clearly! The narrator has done a superb job. I wish the book didn’t end as it’s hard to find another book just as good!

Suspenseful and Engaging

This novel is certainly worthy of it’s modern status as a classic of gothic literature. Dracula managed to provoke such interest and at times emotion within me as I read which I had come to take for granted as a product of modern literature. Despite the occasional reminder of the outdated views of the time regarding gender and race, this novel captures the mind and heart within the slow burning suspense of its pages that will surely engage any reader with an interest in fantasy horror.

An old-fashioned masterpiece

Story: profound and exquisite
Narrator: truly superb
Quality of writing: not exactly top-notch by modern standards
Analytical essay at the end: garbage

This is a great story covered by a layer of dust, since writing techniques evolve over time and we have to be honest and say that by today's standards, it is a bit unpolished. I will say no more about that, because people tend to get angry when someone dares to criticize a... classic!! However, the story is profound, it touches some fundamental truths in a man's soul and after listening to it, I reintroduced my rosary from Catholic school into my bedroom. Just in case!

The narrator is PERFECT. I don't usually describe things as perfect, but this was amazing to me so much that, for the first time in many many years, I had to look under my bed before I went to sleep. But that's what you get when you listen to a story like this with your headphones in your bed at night, especially since the narration is so full of life. Surely, this narrator's authenticity is partly due to the fact that he is a co-creator of the magnificent 2020 miniseries "Dracula" from BBC.

And maybe it's just me, but that analytical essay about Dracula appended to this audiobook is s**t.

I would recommend this audiobook if you have some Christian ideas and fears even just floating around in the dark background of your mind and if you can handle old-fashioned English writing in a magnitude of, let's say, 15% of Jane Austen. Haha!

A must listen!

Huge fan of Gatiss and Moffat's TV adaptation, but don't know the full Dracula story. Quite a long listen, but Gatiss' narration and distinction between characters is definitely worth it. Highly recommend!

Brilliant!

Mark Gatiss is an exceptional narrator and reads this perfectly. A great story but enhanced more so by his performance.

Moody moody moody moody

Great narration - the narrator uses distinct voices for different characters and reads the text really well.

Story is a spooky, gothic classic. Written through a series of diary entries, log books, newspaper articles etc - which makes the story interesting as the writer can play with the action being off stage. Great prose and interesting insight into the time it was written. Enjoyed!

Astounding, smooth, picturesque

The almost ASMR quality of Gatiss' narration does well to justice such an deservingly authoritative novel of the gothic genre, Bram Stoker's pinnacle work, the irreverent Dracula. So unsullied by time and change, and yet so telling of the contemporary story, this book brings the reality and the fiction into the here and the now. 100% I would recommend this edition of the book, over any other.

Perfect narrator for the text

I have listened to other versions of Dracula on audible, and have read the book as well, but when I saw that Mark Gatiss had recorded a version I had to download it, This is the perfect text for Gatiss and I thoroughly enjoyed this version.

A classic

A classic book that has been brought to life beautifully, the characterisations of Mena and Van Helsing were just fabulous.

A True Classic

An absolute triumph. It took me far too long to listen/read Dracula and I’m so glad this is now rectified. One of the best stories ever told. Mark Gatiss is outstanding and had me hooked with all voices and differences in characters and lends his eerie charisma in heaps. A must listen
