Publisher's Summary

Written by Mary Shelley (1797-1851), "Frankenstein" is the best-selling horror classic about an experiment that goes horribly wrong, and a monster who swears revenge on his creator. Swiss student Victor Frankenstein uncovers the secret to bringing life to what is lifeless, and in assembling body parts to create a monster, ultimately sets the stage for his own destruction and that of everything he loves when the monster is rejected by society.

Penned as part of a competition between Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, and John Polidori to see who could write the best horror story, Frankenstein is resonant with themes of love, friendship, hubris, and fear. It presents the epic battle between man and monster, showing that man is not always capable of controlling that which he creates.

Great book horrible narrator

The story itself is incredible. The narrator is more monotone than my preference will allow. I was hoping it would improve throughout the story but it did not. Given the price I’m not upset, but I’ve found free books with more life in them than this. No pun intended. But overall a great story!!

Uneven performance of a classic

If you don't mind uneven audio, a few glitches from what were clearly mistakes, or a few repeated lines, then this is an okay version. It was difficult to listen to at times, but the cost is not at all prohibitive. As they say, you get what you pay for. The story will endure, however. Always a classic.

Boring

I don’t know if it’s the story or how it’s being read, but I couldn’t finish it because it was so emotionless and monotone.
