Gelesen von Caden Vaughn Clegg

(4,568 Sterne; 185 Bewertungen)

Frankenstein begins in epistolary form, documenting the correspondence between Captain Robert Walton and his sister, Margaret Walton Saville. Walton sets out to explore the North Pole and expand his scientific knowledge in hopes of achieving fame and friendship. The ship becomes trapped in ice, and, one day, the crew sees a dog sled in the distance, on which there is the figure of a giant man. Hours later, the crew finds a frozen and emaciated man, Victor Frankenstein, in desperate need of sustenance. Frankenstein had been in pursuit of the gigantic man observed by Walton's crew when all but one of his dogs died. He had broken apart his dog sled to make oars and rowed an ice-raft toward the vessel. Frankenstein starts to recover from his exertion and recounts his story to Walton. Before beginning his story, Frankenstein warns Walton of the wretched effects of allowing ambition to push one to aim beyond what one is capable of achieving. In telling his story to the captain, Frankenstein finds peace within himself. (Introduction by Wikipedia) (7 hr 26 min)

Classic Love

(5 Sterne)

An amazing and riveting story that gives one a lot to think about and much to feel, albiet, those feelings are conflicting. it's a question of wether or not you believe in he creature's words, and what you decide to do with them.

perfect

(5 Sterne)

I really loved this book and the narrator voice is great, the changes he makes to differentiate between the voices is exceptional, although I was a bit concerned about his throat at some point, I hope he was fine after recording.

The story was interesting, though depressing and “wretched!” It took some time getting into it, I will admit and I almost gave up but it finally picked up. Sometimes Frankenstein rambled on a little too much in his head for me. Otherwise it was well written and touched on some deep thoughts and opinions as well as discussing the frailties of human nature. I enjoyed the book. As for the narrator, he does a great job narrating though his voice is a bit monotone and didn’t keep my interest early on into the book and I found myself zoning out listening. However, I found that it improves, especially as he changes character voices (though there aren’t many).

Unexpectedly thought provoking!

(5 Sterne)

I was apprehensive about reading this book, bit it is titally different than I imagined it would be. Not at all like movies portray it.

The narrator could read anything to me. He’s the only reasons this gets 5 stars. Thank you! Your voive is so pleasant.

Great narration...

(4 Sterne)

Great narration, but the story itself is rather slow. For me, it didn't start getting interesting until about chapter 10.
