Victor Frankenstein learns the secret of producing life, and so, by putting together parts of various corpses, he creates the Frankenstein monster. The monster is huge and disformed, but he means no harm to anyone--until constant ill treatment drives him to murder and revenge. This easy-to-read version of Mary Shelley's long-standing masterpiece easily captures the sadness and horror of the original.

I LOVE HISTORY!!!
This is the classic, not some ridiculous off-shoot and it is well worth the time to listen to. The story is far more interesting than any of the '60s movies ever portrayed the scientist, the monster, and the relationship that existed between them.
Yes, I would indeed listen to Frankenstein again. The story is wondrous and the performance is superb.
One of the most memorable moments of Frankenstein is the relating of events by the monster.
My favorite character -as performed by Jim Weiss- is undoubtable the fiend.
This book made me shiver sometimes.
Reading and listening to this book is an unforgettable experience that I strongly recommend.
Better than print version
The Beast. His values were simple and virtuous until he found that not a soul would care for him..to include his maker.
This book is written with detail after detail. If Jim Weiss did not take great effort in sharing those, the book would have been different and I may not have finished it. The book version is hard to stick with. Jim took you through each chararcter's view point.
Hard to believe this was written by a nineteen year old.
