Item Description...
Overview
Dr. Frankenstein learns the secret of imparting life to inanimate matter. To test his theories, he collects bones from the charnel-houses to construct a "human" being, and then gives it life. The creature, endowed with supernatural size and strength, is revolting to look at, and frightens all who see it. Lonely and miserable, it comes to hate its creator. The monster murders Frankenstein's brother and his bride, and flees. The doctor pursues his creation in order to destroy it, but dies himself in the attempt. The story of Frankenstein was first written as a ghost story to be told as part of a contest between Mary Shelley, her husband, and Lord Byron. This tale of terror has been a world favorite since it was first published in 1818, and has been made into countless movies.

More About Tom Casaletto Mary W. Shelley

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Mary Shelley was born in London in 1797, daughter of William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, famous radical writers of the day. In 1814, she met and soon fell in love with the then-unknown Percy Bysshe Shelley. In December 1816, after Shelley's first wife committed suicide, Mary and Percy married. They lived in Italy from 1818 until 1822, when Percy drowned, whereupon Mary returned to London to live as a professional writer of novels, stories, and essays until her death in 1851.
Maurice Hindle is Senior Faculty Manager in Arts at London's Open University, where he also teaches literature. In addition to Frankenstein, he has edited Caleb Williams and Dracula for Penguin Classics.
Coralie Bickford-Smith is an award-winning designer at Penguin Books (U.K.), where she has created several highly acclaimed series designs. She studied typography at Reading University and lives in London.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Narrator is horrid  Jun 17, 2007
I have to agree, this narrator, is not very good. First, the breathing, the saliva.... and the fact that it lulls you to sleep.
 
Needs a good narrator!  Mar 30, 2004
This is probably the most disappointing audio book I have ever "read." Why the reader thought it apt to make the main character, Victor Frankenstein--who was, what, 30? 35 years old maximum?--at the end of this novel sound like a decrepit old Swiss-German professor, is beyond my comprehension. It was so distracting that it interrupted my concentration on the events described countless times, forcing me to have to rewind, listen again, rewind, listen again, .....

Also, why, when everyone in the novel is European, are the only ones with non-American accents Victor and a few Irish people?

This reader ruined an otherwise fascinating novel for me. If I wasn't stuck on a long drive with nothing else to "read," I would have stopped it, and sent it back, and demanded a refund! In my opinion, Tom Casaletto should never be given another book-reading job again.

 
Classic Horror for Grown-ups  Feb 28, 2003
My wife and I listened to this unabridged recording on a long drive, and both of us enjoyed it.

If your only exposure to Frankenstein is from the movies, this is a more adult horror/SF/morality tale. First there is no "Doctor" Frankenstein, no Igor, no castle, no electicity, no robbed evil brain, and the brute reads Milton. The "fiend" is sympathetic yet becomes truly wicked. Victor Frankenstein is painted in shades of gray too, and he almost deserves what he gets - although the rest of his family doesn't. The book starts and ends in the Arctic. Sounds like the movies?
