Awareness of Dracula as a masterly gothic thriller has increased ever since its publication in 1897, and the novel is regarded as one of the most seminal horror stories ever written, having inspired countless copycat tales and literary spin-offs. The tale of young Englishman Jonathan Harker's journey to Transylvania, into the very heart of Count Dracula’s evil realm, is compelling, but it is perhaps the journey of the vampire to England—and the dangers he poses to Jonathan’s beloved Mina—that is more horrifying.

Narrators: Alan Cumming, Tim Curry, & full cast I’m done! I’m not sure what to say about it though. I am glad to have read, or listened to, this classic, but I think I’ll need to reread it in print at some point.

4.0 Classic story still one of the best
The true original, where it all started and a phenomenon that spawned a generation and more of copy cat stories and movies. Yes of course it is off its age, and the descriptive prose/language can take a short time and a little concentration to adjust to....but persevere and you will be rewarded with...

0.0 Final Bingo Square: Grave or Graveyard
Changed my mind (yet again) and switched books for my final bingo square, as I'm not sure I'll be in much of a mind to finish my previous choice for "Grave or Graveyard," Umberto Eco's Cemetery of Prague. So I switched to the 2016 BBC audio adaptation of Dracula, starring David Suchet in the title...

4.0 (Audiobook) Dracula
The way this book is set up--being told through a series of diary/journal entries, letters, etc.,--really lends itself to a multiple narrator format. Everyone involved gave an amazing performance, especially Alan Cumming as Dr. John Seward, and Katy Kellgren as Mina Murray/Harker.
