Synopsis: [Library Edition Audio CD in Vinyl case]
This is an *ABRIDGED* reading of Frankenstein. It is read by Julie Harris and it is part of the 'Classics Read by Celebrities' audiobook series.
An ambitious young scientist succeeds in creating a living creature, only to bring death and destruction to those he loves. This masterpiece of Gothic horror also has the distinction of being the first science fiction novel.
Review: Frankenstein, loved by many decades of readers and praised by such eminent literary critics as Harold Bloom, seems hardly to need a recommendation. If you haven't read it recently, though, you may not remember the sweeping force of the prose, the grotesque, surreal imagery, and the multilayered doppelgänger themes of Mary Shelley's masterpiece. As fantasy writer Jane Yolen writes of this (the reviewer's favorite) edition, "The strong black and whites of the main text [illustrations] are dark and brooding, with unremitting shadows and stark contrasts. But the central conversation with the monster--who owes nothing to the overused movie image ... but is rather the novel's charnel-house composite--is where [Barry] Moser's illustrations show their greatest power ... The viewer can all but smell the powerful stench of the monster's breath as its words spill out across the page. Strong book-making for one of the world's strongest and most remarkable books." Includes an illuminating afterword by Joyce Carol Oates.
