Simon Vance narrates this no-frills production of what is widely regarded as the first science-fiction novel ever published. FRANKENSTEIN may be one of the most oft-recorded novels of all time, but this version is certainly a fine one. In fact, it's hard to imagine one better. Simon Vance's regal English accent provides the perfect tone for this early-nineteenth-century moral exploration of mankind's use of knowledge. Mary Shelley wrote a book that may surprise those whose experience with the story is only from movies. Nearly two hundred years later, it is still thoughtful and completely worthwhile. The final CD includes what the publisher calls an “eBook,” a convenient electronic print version (in PDF format) for those who want to follow along.
