Wow - hollywood got it wrong
Not Your Hollywood Frankenstein
I can't pinpoint any one reason that this experience was so enjoyable except that the reader was never boring and the story was quite intriguing.
I especially enjoyed the monster's point of view in this story. So different than I ever dreamed.
I listen to so many books on audio and the performance of GJ is surpassed by none.
I was tempted to listen in one sitting, but obligation didn't allow. However, I was anxious to get back to listening as quickly as possible. The reading was excellent!
I had seen Frankenstein, Hollywood style since my childhood, (I'm over 50) so when I was required to read this book for an English college course I was not very excited. I intend to teach high school English/Literature and I dare say this is one novel I certainly plan to explore with my future teachers. This novel is well written with insight to the amazing story of "the monster". I would highly recommend this novel to all audiences young and old. It is by far one of my favorite books. Listening to this book on audio by this reader was pleasure.
