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. The performances of the cast were quite good, although I’m not sure how well this book lends itself to the audio format. I suppose it does make the journal entries come alive. I was surprised to find Mina to be written as a fairly strong character. I may have more to say later, or on a reread.

 

I’m counting this book for the “Gothic” square for the Hallowe’en Bingo.
