Missing sentences corrected last week

(0 Sterne)

The missing sentences in Chapter 6 (section 5) were corrected last week. This was only the 7th LibriVox recording. If the criticism had been so harsh then, the readers might have given up, and not gone on to offer you over 5000 more FREE audiobooks. If this version does not please you, there are now two others... or come and record one yourself.

Great recordings, incorrect summary

(4 Sterne)

I use the recordings in my high school classroom. My students enjoy listening to someone other than me reading the novel. I love that the recordings are free and easily accessible. However, your summary is incorrect and needs changing. The creature is not called Frankenstein; Frankenstein is the name of the scientist who creates the being. The person who wrote the summary has clearly only seen the movie and not read the book. You have great materials, so I would like to see you correct this error to improve your credibility.

Missing paragraphs?

(3 Sterne)

I enjoy most of the readers, some could be better. But Chapter 6 is not the full chapter. It starts three paragraphs in, I know that isn't much but it is still missing a part of the chapter that could be extremely important. You will miss that if you are not reading along with the recording.

Worth the read

(4 Sterne)

Frankenstein
