Historian : a novel.
Elizabeth Kostova
Adult Fiction KOSTOVA

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

It's been four years since Kostova's door-stopping vampire novel first shot up the bestseller lists, but this marvelous audio adaptation is worth the wait. Narrated by an ensemble of talented actors, this audio book is enhanced by impressive musical scoring during key transitions (from past to present, or between narrators) and at pivotal junctures in the story. The music adds to the eeriness of the novel's progression, while the brisk abridgement keeps the pace moving much more compellingly than the print version: where the novel reproduced a 15 page academic journal article, this adaptation trims it to its bones by allowing primary sources to speak directly across centuries of history. Rich with evocative settings and a sparkling cast, this adaptation may be an improvement upon the original. A Little, Brown hardcover. (Sept.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

From Library Journal:

Is Dracula alive (so to speak) and well in modern-day Europe? That question, sparked by a strange medieval text and some letters, sets an American girl on the quest that wrecked her father. There's a big, big push here; the publisher is aiming for the Da Vinci Code and even the adult Harry Potter crowd. With a ten-city tour. (c) Copyright 2010.
