Obsessed with creating life itself, Victor Frankenstein plunders graveyards for the material to fashion a new being, which he shocks into life with electricity. But his botched creature, rejected by Frankenstein and denied human companionship, sets out to destroy his maker and all that he holds dear. Mary Shelley's chilling Gothic tale was conceived when she was only 18, living with her lover Percy Shelley near Byron's villa on Lake Geneva. It would become the world's most famous work of horror fiction, and remains a devastating exploration of the limits of human creativity.

Probably not by Mary Shelley unless this was her 1st book. I would listen to another narrated by Richard Pasco.
The story wasn't believable. The monster spoke with words I believe he would not have used. Maybe if the monster wasn't so elegant it would have been better for me.
I think Richard did a fine job.
Disappointment would definitely be the adjective I would use. So much so I did not finish the book.
Not finishing the book is probably the best comment I could make.
I hadn't read the tale in many years, lots of things I'd forgotten about.
the monster, as he has an arc
i enjoyed his pacing and his voice
seriously? they're all horrid people
