Impeccable performance

Not only is this one of the most revered science fiction stories, the performance by the narrator is incredible. Frankenstein is a mother of modern science fiction and developed some of the most widely used science fiction tropes and story style. Even the more modern A.I. takes over the world stories owe much to this tale. The narrator does a masterful job of not just reading but infusing the tale with the emotional weight of the original text. He creates voices for the character that are both classical in nature and sincere. There was moments I found myself almost crying along with the characters as they fast hardship. I highly recommend this audio book!!

Surprising!

Would you consider the audio edition of WDA Classics Presents Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to be better than the print version?

I can't say. I never read the book. After reading this, I wish I had.

What was one of the most memorable moments of WDA Classics Presents Mary Shelley's Frankenstein?

Most of the book. All I've ever seen were the Boris Karloff movies about Frankenstein. This is so different from those movies! It shows how the monster was the real victim, his need for social interaction, and never wanting to hurt anyone. Instead, he's feared because of his size and looks. He never terrorized the villagers nor did they chase him with pitchforks. Victor Frankenstein is the real monster in this classic version.

Which character – as performed by W. B. Ward – was your favorite?

The monster.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A story of discrimination.

Any additional comments?

A must-hear for anyone like myself who has never read Mary Shelley's classic!
