Summary

Obsessed with the secret of creation, Swiss scientist Dr. Victor Frankenstein cobbles together a body he's determined to bring to life. And one fateful night, he does. When the creature opens his eyes, the doctor is repulsed: his vision of perfection is, in fact, a hideous monster. Dr. Frankenstein abandons his creation, but the monster won't be ignored, setting in motion a chain of violence and terror that shadows Victor to his death.
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, a gripping story about the ethics of creation and the consequences of trauma, is one of the most influential Gothic novels in British literature. It is as relevant today as it is haunting.

A Brilliant Classic

This is a brilliant classic wonderfully narrated by Nico Evers-Swindell, which is definitely worth a credit.

A great listen

When I started this audiobook I didn’t think I would enjoy it, but half way through, when the monster had been created and was brought to life, it was a completely engrossing story. Although less than ten hours in length, it seemed like an epic and I attribute that to the great distances travelled by Frankenstein which are so wonderfully described by Shelley. The narrator possibly needs to work on his accents but nonetheless this was a great listen.

Narrator was great

this was the best narrator of any book I have listened to so far. The book was beautifully written, if you have not read it yet definitely give it a listen!
