    "Who doesn't love Frankenstein?"
    Would you listen to Frankenstein again? Why?

    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.

    "Great Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Frankenstein to be better than the print version?

    Better than print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Beast. His values were simple and virtuous until he found that not a soul would care for him..to include his maker.


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

    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.



    Any additional comments?

    Hard to believe this was written by a nineteen year old.
