Frankenstein (1818) is the definitive fable about genetic modification gone haywire which is only too relevant to modern times. Victor Frankenstein decides to build a 'man' from assembled body parts stolen from corpses. What results, of course, is a 'monster', but the mastery of Shelley's storytelling leaves a listener asking themselves what a 'monster' really is - and feeling thoroughly frightened. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797-1851) began to write Frankenstein as part of a competition between friends to write a ghost story. Whilst the others soon gave up, her book went on to win immediate acclaim and has enraptured and terrified readers and listeners ever since.
good voice but this is abridged. i didnt realize until after i bought it.
THIS IS ABRIDGED
Since it says nowhere in the description of this audiobook that this is an abridged version, I bought it thinking I could follow along with my paperback copy. However, you can imagine my confusion when I attempted to do this. Now, I am forced to buy an entirely new version, wasting 6 dollars on something I will never have any use for.
I bout the audiobook, thinking it was the entire book. It should DEFINITELY say abridged in the title like all other abridged audiobooks. I then had to pay an extra $6 to get a different audiobook that was unabridged. Would not recommend it!
