    Frankenstein is infused with some elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement and is also considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction. Includes introduction and commentary by Mary Shelley. Required reading for any fan of science fiction and horror genres. A classic.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    This was very suspenseful. Even though the exposition at the beginning was a bit slow, by the time you get to chapter 13, the story starts moving and you're hooked.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Yes.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Shelly builds the story slowly. By the time disaster strikes, you care about each of the characters.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Very good.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I listened because I wanted to check a classic book off my list. I was surprised by thoroughly enjoying it. It's too bad the movies didn't follow the original story.
