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.

Aaron tells his stories in his podcasts in a matter-of-fact way. His vocal variance isn’t much and there’s little to no emotion presented. IMHO, that’s good for lore and small bits of odd factoids that don’t span hours; however, it just doesn’t work for an audiobook story where emotion of characters to help bring realness is needed/necessary.
Please Aaron, never narrate an audiobook again. Don’t even read out loud. Or is apple just trying to pass off a robot as a person?
Are. You. A. Robot?
What am I listening to? So choppy and monotone.
