SHELLEY, M.: Frankenstein (Abridged)

The gothic tale of Frankenstein and his construction of a human being who runs amok has, with the help of numerous films, become one of the most vivid of horror stories. But Mary Shelley’s original novel, written in 1816, dealt more sympathetically with ‘the daemon’, showing how an initially kindly creature is hammered into a daemon by the way he is treated. Her ideas, and her dramatic but poignant story, is brought to life in this audiobook, which comes with CD-ROM notes.
