Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (Free Audio Book)


Frankenstein's Monster

Listen to the Audio Book here…
(It may take a moment to appear):


Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is one of the most famous novels in the world. It was written by the brilliant Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. The story concerns Victor Frankenstein, a scientist who joins a university in order to study chemistry and philosophy. Victor decides to create a grotesque monster that soon becomes his great foe. He has not the slightest idea that this powerful creature will destroy not only his life but also the lives of the people he love the most.

Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein is for sure one of the greatest novels ever written, and one of those that you must not skip. The story shows that by playing God you can destroy your own life and the lives of your beloved ones. Some readers will find Victor to be an excellent scientist, who transgresses boundaries without fear and manages to create something that nobody had created ever before. Other readers will say that he was a complete lunatic, incapable of dealing with the problems that he himself had caused. Listen to the audiobook and make your own judgment about Victor.

The story is read by several people, enabling us to easily differentiate the characters. It is always obvious who is speaking.  All the readers have clear and smooth voice. The readers have different accents which makes the reading rather interesting. They pace themselves very well. They know where to speed up a little bit in order to make the story sound more dramatic and where to slow down in order for us to pay attention to the details of the story. Overall, both the story and the reading are great.

  1. This book is a literary wonder.

  2. I think the last six chapters are missing.

    • Thanks for the head-up. That’s fixed now – thanks again for letting us know!

  3. Vary long but good but boring at times

  4. Alex Foster was very enjoyable

  5. Which version is this? The original 1818 or the edited version from 1831?

    • Unfortunately I can’t tell, it’s from the Gutenberg e-text #84 which doesn’t say. If anyone does know please enlighten the rest of us.

    • I believe it is the 1818 version. I’m using this for school and I have the 1818 version.

  6. The Author’s Introduction and Preface are also missing.

  7. It’s the 1831 version. You can tell because in Chapter 1 Elizabeth is found in Italy. In the 1818 version, she is Victor’s actual cousin (his father’s sister’s daughter). Hope this clears up the confusion.
