Publisher's Summary

An ancient alchemist drags out his weary life in search of the elixir of immortality. But, when his vengeful assistant quaffs the mixture, he discovers that the effects of the draft of immortality may never wear off. Mary Shelley explores the concept of immortality, following a character that never ages through a ponderous and thought provoking life.

A CURE FOR LOVE

Being immortal is not all it is cracked up to be. This is an entertaining story of how an apprentice became immortal. It is also the story of this life. I liked it from beginning to end.


As far as narrators, you can't lose with Harrison

I loved it.

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

The story was wonderful and moving. B.J. Harrison's narration was top notch as always.

What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His many great voices and accents really make make the story come alive.

Be entertained by a Master Writer

B.J.'s performance is compelling and holds you in the grip of a story so devilish between two lovers you will not soon forget, not for immortality, but for thirty-nine minutes
