Amazing Historical Fiction
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I listened to this on audio. It was the best audio performance ever. It had sound effects and music fades for scene changes. A whole troop of people, rather than the usual one man, read/acted out the book with great flair. It was better than a movie.
The story alone would be fabulous, and doesn't reveal that it's a vampire tale until well into the book. Set amidst some lesser known history with the protagonists and main characters all cast as historians. Woven together with little known facts behind the Dracula myth, the story becomes a beautiful tapestry that begs to be remembered for a lifetime.
