In the frozen wastes north of Russia, a
lone seaward vessel seeks the elusive Northwest Passage. Suddenly
they sight a dog sled with a gargantuan figure in the shape of a
man, driving the dogs northward to sure oblivion. The following
day, they find another sled. This sled is filled with a European
near death, and when asked what he is chasing, he simply replies,
"to seek one who fled from me." So begins the famous tale of a man
who found the secret of life, and created a man in his own image.
This multifaceted story tackles many themes fundamental to man's
existence, while trailblazing a new genre in literature: horror.
Harrison's voicing of the creature is one of his greatest
achivements, giving the horrible, wretched creature a subtle
nobility, thus creating a fully dimensional character. Running

The narration is great.... But because it is all in one file, eg. no breaks between chapters, it is very hard to find where i stopped listening last time.
Much deeper than your typical horror novel

BJ's voice for the monster could not have been more perfect. Frankenstein will take you on an unexpected journey into heart of the human condition.

This is the first audio book I have purchased from this web site although I listen to the Classic Tales Podcast quite reguarly. I was very impressed with how easy it was to order. I am enjoying it now and will be back to the web site for more selections. Thank you!
Not what I was expecting :)

I typically steer clear of the Horror genre. But with Frankenstein I just couldn't resist. WOW. What an incredible novel! I wish I'd have become acquainted with it years ago. It is a story that can change a man. Inspire him to be better and warn him not to necessarily chase his dreams. You never know what the realization of those dreams might be. It is a story about what it means to be human.And BJ does an excellent job in narating. I loved the monsters voice. It was perfect!
