Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is one of the masterpieces of nineteenth-century Gothicism. While stay-ing in the Swiss Alps in 1816 with her lover Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, and others, Mary, then eighteen, began to concoct the story of Dr. Victor Frankenstein and the monster he brings to life by electricity. Written in a time of great personal tragedy, it is a subversive and morbid story warning against the dehumanization of art and the corrupting influence of science. Packed with allusions and literary references, it is also one of the best thrillers ever written. Frankenstein; Or, the Modern Prometheus was an instant bestseller on publication in 1818. The prototype of the science fiction novel, it has spawned countless imitations and adaptations but retains its original power.



  • Dan Stevens does an absolutely amazing job with the narration in 'Frankenstein'. I remember reading this book when I was young, and now as an adult, I felt compelled to experience it again. Stevens' ability to articulate and bring the characters to life is truly impressive. I highly recommend this audiobook.
  • The narration in "Frankenstein" is way too over-the-top, which doesn't do any favors to the already melodramatic, rambling, and tedious nature of the story. It feels like a never-ending journey, even though it's just 8 hours long. I remember reading it as a teenager and it didn't feel as draggy and filled with woe-is-me nonsense back then.
