Chapter alignment is wrong

Wonderful novel and audio read, except that the chapters do not match those of the novel. This is problematic for use in my class, but may not be an issue for those listening for pleasure.

Magnificent narration if a classic

Reknowned Shakespearean actor narrates a classic. Enough said. Listen at night...around Halloween...and a fire. Great stuff!

Perfect

It doesn't get much better than this. I love the story and know why it is a classic. Kenneth Branagh's performance is flawless.

The gentleman's science fiction in a lady's mind!

Eloquently written, the characters were 3 dimensional with depth. Frankenstein tortures himself unnecessarily. The details leave questions.

The story is great but this audiobook is awful

The performance is dreadful. So dull and monotone, I almost fell asleep several times while listening

Beautiful narration

Beautiful narration and an excellent performance from Kenneth Branagh. Was a pleasure to listen to and evoked the gothic nature of the books intent.
