Publisher's Summary

When the crew of the Oceanus rescued a man close to death, its captain could barely have guessed at the incredible story that man would come to share. This is the story of Victor Frankenstein: a man obsessed with discovering the secret of life and cheating death; a man who brings to life to a body built from corpses; and a man who rejects this would-be child....
Soon Victor and his creature are entangled in a dangerous game of cat and mouse across Europe. But who is truly the monster?
Arthur Darvill stars in this gripping audiobook adaptation of Mary Shelley’s chilling tale, dramatised by Jonathan Barnes. This release also features a bonus documentary - Behind the Screams - examining the worlds of horror in audio drama, and the full music suite, composed by James Dunlop.


What the Critics Say

"Jonathan Barnes and everyone involved deserve to be congratulated for the quality of this story that does full justice to the original." (
"Intense, horrifying and brilliantly realised – more like this please, Big Finish." (Sci-Fi Bulletin)
"It’s a brilliant and probably in its own terms an undervalued story, and this is a fascinating, absorbing reading of it. Highly recommended." (Starburst Magazine)

Great Performance - but Unbalanced

The dramatised performance is fantastic but there's 40 chapters of cast/crew interviews - too much!

only aprox 3hrs long

the rest of this audio is from cast crew etc. the book itself was amazing, performance was gripping. however there was an awful lot of other information with this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
