In My Ears: Dracula

DraculaDracula by Bram Stoker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read this classic so many times, but mostly when I was younger. A few years ago I listened to the Librivox recording which I greatly enjoyed.

Now Heather Ordover at CraftLit is going through the book. She’s recruited people to fill in with reading for the different characters where she didn’t feel the Librivox version was adequate. The result is a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience which highlights the author’s talent. As always, Heather supplements this with background material and thoughtful commentary. This is the English class you always wished for, based around really wonderful books. (There is craft talk at the beginning of each podcast. For those who wish only book talk, Just the Books is a parallel podcast with the craft talk trimmed out (I confess I resort to this most of the time).
