Dracula - Katherine Kellgren, Simon Vance, Alan Cumming, John      Lee, Steven Crossley, Graeme Malcolm, Tim Curry, Bram Stoker, Susan Duerden

This is the actual Audible book cover for this audio book version of Dracula:

You know... in case anyone was wondering.

 

 

I had forgotten that I was saving this audio book for October.  This is the Tim Curry, Alan Cumming, and full cast Audible version, which also Whispersyncs with the Kindle book.  I became interested a while back and on a whim, went ahead and added both to my library.

 

I read Dracula a long time ago when I was in the sixth grade for a book report and presentation.  I never actually finished the book (or if I had, I don't remember it), because I had to rush through the end of the darn thing and then slap together a last minute report.  To this day, I still don't remember why I ran out of time so quickly, AND I'm not entirely certain how I managed to write a full book report without even having finished it.

 

Yeah.  I know... blasphemy... or some such equivalent of book taboo stuff.

 

So I have always wanted to reread Dracula, because while I never finished reading it, I did get to the last few chapters and I recall really liking it a lot.

 

I'm hoping I'll have the same experience this time around, listening to the audio book version, and maybe following along with the print or Kindle version.  I also own a large leather bound tome (or so it looks like a classic, fancy leather bound tome, courtesy of Borders Classics), that has three classic horror novels, Dracula being one of them.

 

I often don't like rereads, because I hate to ruin that nostalgic memory of having loved the book with giddy glee only to realize it wasn't really all that great--but this has really only happened to be twice in my life.  The stats are bad though, because I don't often reread books (or listen to audio book versions of books I've already read).

 

Anyway...
