This is a little complex for me to review since I view this book in two different ways - as a novel and as a piece of supporting literature for playing The Curse of Strahd.
As a book it is... ok. The story is reasonable but not complete - lots of gaps in the background of what is actually going on. These can probably be filled in reasonably well by your imagination but nonetheless, it would have been good to have the extra detail. The characters are a little slim in detail. Some of the characters who satellite Strahd are important to pieces of the story (e. g., his bother) but we actually know very little about them and there is simply no real character development - when everyone has bad stuff happen to them, you do not really care - because of the lack of character development, it does not matter about the awful things that happen or in fact, the tragedy of Tatyana.
As a piece of writing to support the DnD game, it was pretty good. In the adventure one of the key points is to acquire a book that tells the players about the background story of Strahd. He gave basic information, but made the players aware of this book and stated that if we wanted more information, we were allowed to read this book and any knowledge could then be assumed to be known by the players. It seems like a great idea and after reading it, I feel I now have more knowledge to bring to the game... and more questions! Which I LOVE.
So, overall, a mixed review - for DnD I would say it is definitely worth getting a copy. As a novel, there are much better vampire books.

Honestly it's a bit difficult for me to write a review about this book, because I bet I won't find
anything bad about it. It's just perfect as it is!
The story is framed by an excellent prologue and epilogue, that creates a fantastic atmosphere for this haunting tale: Rudolph Van Richten, the old
vampire hunter sneaks into the castle of Strahd Von Zarovich, the Lord of Barovia and reads his diary, revealing the tragedy and fate of the mighty vampire. Strahd sacrified his life to acquire more and more power and honour, but forgot about the most important: love. He falls in love with Tatyana, the beloved of his brother, but the girl doesn't love Him. The essence of dark fantasy enters the story at this point: Strahd offers the life of his brother to the Evil to get her love... The secret of the Ba'al Verzi assassin, the fate of Tatyana and revenge - some events of the excellent storyline, that are awaiting for the reader to reveal. An excellent book. I admit, that I have read it three times and I like it more and more. Thank You for reading my praises, I hope this review helped you a bit...

This is an ok book completely ruined by the terrible audio narration. The narrator Paul Boehmer reads like a robot, there are times when I think Im listening to an AI. Buy the book but dont buy the audible version.
I buy lots of audible books and this guy fades in between narration and robot reader, he's not the worst I've heard but he's one of them.

This book is the first of 2 that were printed and follow the life of Strahd von Zarovich, vampire and dark lord of Barovia in Ravenloft. PN Elrod does a grand job of the writing and presents Strahd's life well in this book. Since this book is told by The Devil Strahd himself, it cannot be taken as canon Ravenloft, but an excellent sourse for Barovian Propaganda in games. Even if yo udo not play Ravenloft, this book is an excellent piece on its own, but may leave some confusion, a tiny level of familiarity with Ravenloft will help the reader some ;)
