The classic tale of men and their monsters is narrated by the host of the spooky Lore podcast. First published in 1818, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is frequently credited as the first-ever science fiction novel. Her supernatural thriller— about a brilliant scientist who attempts to create a life and ends up destroying countless others—has become a cultural touchstone, sparking 200 years of conversations about human hubris and the unintended consequences of scientific experimentation. This Apple Books exclusive features Aaron Mahnke reading Shelley’s astonishing tale of men and their monsters. Mahnke—host and creator of the hit podcast Lore (which has been adapted into books and a TV show)—knows a thing or two about scary stories. He’s the perfect narrator for this spooky, unexpectedly heartbreaking classic.
5 stars but for narrator
This is a very sad and moving book full of tragedy and grief but that is partly what makes this great book a classic. This is a must read! The story is 5 stars but the narrator is not. The I found that after some time I got used to the narrator and he sounded better once speeded up to 1.25.

This reader is so bad ... OMG. I guess you do get what you pay for. So sorry not to be able to listen to this book.
I do not enjoy leaving a bad review, but I see why this was free.
