It's not easy being a vampire--especially if, like Count Alucard, you hate the sight of blood. The adventures of a vegetarian vampire are skillfully narrated by Brian Glover. Adults may notice dialectic inconsistencies, but children will be charmed by his vocal characterizations. Astute listeners will notice right away that Alucard is Dracula spelled backward. This is an excellent choice for family listening, especially those with eight to twelve-year-olds who are fascinated by "scary stories." This offering requires an appreciation for the scary, but doesn't move into the realm of horror. B.L.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 94]
