Publisher's Summary

The year 12,090 AD. It is a dark time for the world. Humanity is just crawling out from under 300 years of domination by the race of vampires known as the Nobility. The war against the vampires has taken its toll; cities lie in ruin, the countryside is fragmented into small villages and fiefdoms that still struggle against nightly raids by the fallen vampires - and the remnants of their genetically manufactured demons and werewolves.

Every village wants a Hunter - one of the warriors who have pledged their laser guns and their swords to the eradication of the Nobility. But some Hunters are better than others, and some bring their own kind of danger with them....

so glad I found this series on audible.

I've been a D fan since I first stumbled across it on VHS. I am so happy to finally hear, and see the complete story of the film in my minds eye.

Enrapturing!

This world Hideyuki made is truly a wondrous and dark one. A post-apocalyptic fantasy horror worth a read.

it's good, not great

if you're a fan you'll probably enjoy it. the writing is ok. it basically just says how beautiful and amazing D is the whole time.

you have to apply context

early 80s throwaway horror / sci fi with just 3nough big ideas that it has endured. the gothic touch is the best part, but it's stuck in so many 80s manga/anime/comic tropes it's ludicrous at times. very tell don't show. however, it's a fantastic world, sort of a Castlevania meets Elric situation. no complaints about the audiobook, but know that going in that this piece is as much 80s B movie as it is brooding gothic horror.

Good read, bizarre vampire western.

Love the narrator. great job, looking forward to more.

In a nutshell Vampire Hunter D is a "ancient future" western. the series is a bit bizarre, and sometimes corny. At times it seems like anything goes. combines Hammer and Lovecraftian Horror.

Love the illustrations by Yoshitaka Amano.

I like this, and want more, there are at least 30 books in all.

Paul Boehmer VS. graphic audio

obviously Vampire Hunter D is a well-loved and long-running series at 35 books and Counting.
and after nearly forty years audiobooks are now being made. even better than that there are two versions. this version read by Paul Boehmer is the straight unabridged reading of the book. and it is top-notch. I do give graphic audio The Edge simply because the multicast performances really make it more alive. but I do think it's at the cost of a little bit detail. not sure cuz I haven't done a side-by-side comparison of all the scenes. but I do know the narrator in the graphic audio version sounds a bit too muffled / clogged. but he does grow on you. Paul Boehmer narration is quite respectful, enjoyable, and clear. I look forward to hearing his Renditions on the rest of the series.

personally I'm already decided to buy all the Vampire Hunter D audio books as they are released. I pre-ordered as soon as they were up simply because I want to support this series and help support future releases. I'm very glad of the quality so far.
