Frankenstein's creation was not a lumbering, simple-minded giant. Hollywood created that familiar monster. In Mary Shelley's audiobook, the creature is intelligent and agile. He is not mute, but articulate and eloquent. In the span of one chapter of the classic novel, the creature changes from good to evil. Imagine what life would be like for this man. Pieced together with dead bodies, he's given life, only to be scorned and abandoned by his creator, and reviled and feared by everyone. What changed a gentle giant into a monster? The Missing Chapter gives him a chance to tell his story - an incredible tale of passion, desire, and regret.
