    Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus, is Mary Shelley's passionate and Gothic tale of terror, in which a man's desire to know the unknowable sweeps him into a living nightmare. Victor Frankenstein's experiments with life itself give birth to an extraordinary force with the potential for either good or evil.

    Would you listen to Frankenstein again? Why?

    Absolutely! To me, it is a not about the classic tale of terror but its underlying story of both the beauty and tenderness of the human heart and the consequence of mankind's tendency towards prejudice and fear of the unknown.


    What other book might you compare Frankenstein to and why?

    Not sure. In my mind, Frankenstein stands in a category of its own. However, I did appreciate the literary thoughtfulness with which this tale was written. To me, the story and language is both poetic and eloquent.


    What does Kenneth Branagh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As soon as I found out there was a version of one of my favourite novels (Frankenstein) that was read by my favourite Shakespeare actor of all time, I immediately downloaded it--no need to preview! As usual, Branagh did NOT disappoint :). Although I admit I may be somewhat biased (he's one of my favourite actors of all time), I think you'll agree, Branagh can tell a tale like few others!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I just closed my eyes and let Branagh tell this classic tale.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it.
