Who doesn't love Frankenstein?

Would you listen to Frankenstein again? Why?

This is the classic, not some ridiculous off-shoot and it is well worth the time to listen to. The story is far more interesting than any of the '60s movies ever portrayed the scientist, the monster, and the relationship that existed between them.
