Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus Audiobook – written by Mary Shelley
A classic horror novel that has been rewritten and has been recreated in too many ways to fully count including plays, movies, songs, cartoons and a Mel Brooks film. Frankenstein is the creepy and mind twisting novel written by the one and only Mary Shelley. This is her cautionary tale about the dangers of science.
Committed science student Victor Frankenstein is obsessed with the prospect of discovering the cause of life and what would happen if you could bring to life already dead remains. Creating a creature which Dr. Frankenstein assembles from stolen body parts of freshly killed and buried individual he unlikely succeeds in bringing this creature to life. Unfortunately as soon as he brings it to life he almost immediately regrets his decision to bring such a monster into this world.
After the monster escapes he is plagued by isolation and loneliness from being cast out of the world he doesn’t belong in. Due to a series of bad luck and accidents the once-innocent creature turns evil and begins to unleash a vengeful campaign to hunt down and destroy his creator, Victor Frankenstein.
Frankenstein is the instant best seller that has become an important pre-cursor into the worlds of both horror and science fiction. This novel not only tells a terrifying story but also has us pondering the very questions of the nature of live and the where do humans fall into the place among the cosmos. It also explores the consequences of playing god and creating life that is unnatural.
Join the voice of Simon Vance as he recites this epic tale of science, life and taking your pursuits too far, as well as exploring the ugliness of society towards anything they deem inhuman. It makes us take a mirror to ourselves and think upon what we would do if we were in the same time period or situation. Would we create life just to see what would happen, would we be terrified by an innocent creature who seemingly does not have a purpose, or would we take him in and try to help him find meaning in a meaningless existence.
