Beschreibung des Verlags
The classic tale of men and their monsters is narrated by the host of the spooky Lore podcast.
First published in 1818, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is frequently credited as the first-ever science fiction novel. Her supernatural thriller—about a brilliant scientist who attempts to create a life and ends up destroying countless others—has become a cultural touchstone, sparking 200 years of conversations about human hubris and the unintended consequences of scientific experimentation.
This Apple Books exclusive features Aaron Mahnke reading Shelley’s astonishing tale of men and their monsters. Mahnke—host and creator of the hit podcast Lore (which has been adapted into books and a TV show)—knows a thing or two about scary stories. He’s the perfect narrator for this spooky, unexpectedly heartbreaking classic.
Great story, horribly read
The narrator for this sounds supremely bored and uninterested, which makes it hard for me to listen to this recording.
I enjoy reading the book (have re-read it a couple of times) so I thought it would be great to pass some long, boring drives. Unfortunately this audiobook only makes the drives worse...
As if Siri is reading a book
The book itself is a masterpiece, no doubt. But the narrator is the worst I have ever experienced. He pronounces randomly as if it’s read by an artificial intelligence. In fact - I don’t even think Siri would have performed any worse.
