A wonderful story...

This is an audio version of the original 1818 text which has more controversial material than the original. It is fantastically narrated by Flo Gibson. In all honesty, she almost does the male voices better than the female voices. She is easy to listen to, and draws you into this tragic classic.

Gripping

It's hard to believe "Frankenstein" came out of the same world that produced Jane Austen, but it was published in 1818, the year after Jane Austen died. It's a grim, bloody, grave-worm-infested story, a haunting Romantic ode to the quest for knowledge.

What's even more surprising about the recording is that Flo Gibson is the narrator. She is one of my favorites, mostly from her recordings of Jane Austen, and her vocal range continues to astonish me. The hero being Swiss, and his native language being French, the bulk of the narration is in English with a slight French accent. Unless you insist that an ostensibly "male" narrator be voiced by a male, you will be hard-pressed to find a better reading of this novel.
