Publisher's 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.

Storyline NOT the same as the text

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Looking for a version that matches the book.

Nice voice

Did Frankenstein inspire you to do anything?

Haven't finished the text... Looking for another version to match the book

A Masterpeice !

A Masterpeice, if you have not yet read/listened to this unforgettable story before do not for a moment hesitate. The author creates characters and movements so clear to the reader/listener's imagination its truly a wonder to behold and unfortunate this is Mary Shelleys only work.

A Brilliant Classic

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

The Monster Was Frankenstein

What did you like most about Frankenstein?

I liked the monster.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Frankenstein?

The monster's desire for acceptance by humans

What about Nico Evers-Swindell’s performance did you like?

Everything. Nico Evers-Swindell narrated the book perfectly.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The monster's appearance after his creator's death.

Any additional comments?

Frankenstein, the monster's creator, is the tragic villain of this novel. If he had taken responsibility for his creation and developed an affection for it, as he surely would have done had he got to know him, instead of being disgusted by his appearance and abandoning him, all would have been well.
