DRACULA The Un-Dead

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Prebble

Fiction • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Simon Prebble is the perfect narrator for this hair-raising sequel to Bram Stoker's original DRACULA. Using Stoker's notes, Dacre Stoker, Bram's great-grandnephew, and Ian Holt, a Dracula scholar, make wonderful leaps into vampire lore and gore. Prebble is deliciously droll as he navigates the backstory, introducing characters both familiar and new. Prebble treats listeners to spot-on versions of Jonathan and Mina Harker; their actor son, Quincey; Drs. Van Helsing and Seward; and a gorgeously realized, unrelentingly vicious Countess Elizabeth Bathory, whose taste for vengeance and bloodletting is unsurpassed. Fans of the original dark fantasy will appreciate Stoker and Holt's period diction and Prebble's top-notch performance. The action is fast, bloody, often surprising, and definitely not in the vein of Stephenie Meyers's TWILIGHT series. S.J.H.
