Penguin Classics presents Bram Stoker's Dracula, adapted for listening and available as a digital audiobook as part of the Penguin English Library series. This abridged audio version is read by the actor Richard E. Grant.
"Alone with the dead! I dare not go out, for I can hear the low howl of the wolf through the broken window"
A chilling masterpiece of the horror genre, Dracula also illuminated dark corners of Victorian sexuality. When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to advise Count Dracula on a London home, he makes a horrifying discovery. Soon afterwards, a number of disturbing incidents unfold in England: an unmanned ship is wrecked at Whitby; strange puncture marks appear on a young woman's neck; and the inmate of a lunatic asylum raves about the arrival of his 'Master', while a determined group of adversaries prepares to face the terrifying Count.
Part of a collection of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives, the Penguin English Library series offers affordable, collectable, quality productions that are perfect for on-the-go listening.
