Publisher's Summary

Mary Shelley wished with her classic Gothic novel Frankenstein to "make the reader dread to look round, to curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart". Mary Shelley succeeded.

Victor Frankenstein finally fulfills his dream of creating his own living creature, stitched together from the macabre remains of corpses. To his horror he finds he has created something even more ghastly than in his worst imaginings. Frankenstein has created a monster with a soul!

Wow. Greatly surprised!!

I have never read this book before. I had zero clue that it was so different then movies made it out to be. The book was scary yet thrilling. I was worried it would be difficult to understand. A book written in the early 1800’s had great vocabulary, but atlas I loved it! The narrator made it perfect. So much so that I want to checkout more of her narrations. If you are on the fence about this book listen to me: “You will love it!!” I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The Mary Shelley Classic! Do Not Miss!!!

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is a classic tale and is brought to life by Daniela Acitelli. Ms. Acitellie does the most amazing job bringing this story life. She captures the desperation, anguish, rage, and utter despair of both Victor Frankenstein and his Monster during their monologues. Her performance is something that is truly outstanding and makes this classic tale even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this audiobook. This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge via Audiobook Boom for an unbiased review.

Absolutely thrilling!

This is one of the few unabridged versions of Mary Shelley's all-time-classic. I'd been looking for a great audiobook version of Frankenstein for quite a while. Well, here it is.

Brilliantly narrated by Daniela Acitelli, whose voice instantly puts you right into the story. Couldn't stop listening. Highly recommended.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Flawless voice artist

The voice artist was great. She wrung each drop of emotion out of every character. It isn’t easy to enliven a book from 1818, but she has done it beautifully. Cheers.

Stunning!

After having seen so many different portrayals of Frankenstein throughout my life on both the big and small screens and in pop culture, I must admit the original story was a very pleasant surprise and surpassed all expectation. This is a heartbreaking and hauntingly beautiful story.

Ms. Acitelli delivered a soulful performance with expertise and gravitas. Her voice has a beautiful timbre and intensity that truly made this listen extra special. This was my first time enjoying this classic tale and I loved every moment, thanks in large part to Ms. Acitelli’s fabulous performance.

Superb narration of a timeless classic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, and have in fact recommended it.

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

Daniela Acitelli brings a female perspective to a story that has been predominantly male-centric. She gives each character warmth and acts out the scenes, giving the reader a truly emotional experience.

Any additional comments?

Everyone is familiar with the story of Frankenstein. We've read the book, watched the films, but listening to the audio version of this classic gives the story another dimension. This was a joy to listen to.

Great Interpretation of an Ageless Classic

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Way ahead of her times, Mary Shelley was able to convey in her masterpiece the torment of a misunderstood creature brought to violence by a society that doesn't know how to accept the out of the ordinary, a concept that unfortunately resonates in the times we live in. What should have been a gentle and loving creature, has been transformed in a monster by cruelty and bigotry. All masterfully told by the author in her spell-binding prose. 200 years later Shelley's work, is more than ever a must read. Excellent with 5 stars. The interpretation by the narrator is also perfect!
