This feminist retelling of Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN unfolds with Miss Lizzie Lavenza being the first female student to be admitted to a prestigious medical school. She's thankful for her father's legacy but also eager to prove her own worth. Narrator Saskia Maarleveld strikes a ladylike tone as she portrays Lizzie's struggles to be accepted in the competitive bioengineering program at Ingold. Maarleveld excels at finding slight ways to differentiate British accents, helping listeners distinguish secondary characters. The story picks up when Lizzie meets a student who had mysteriously disappeared and discovers a plot that could threaten the very monarchy itself. Science fiction fans will find themselves listening breathlessly as the plot comes to a climax. J.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
