"Sir Derek is incredible. We sat in the control room utterly mesmerised by his performance. It was astonishingly powerful"

This audio book, read by star actor Sir Derek Jacobi tells the tale of Dr Frankenstein and the horrendous monster he unleashes on the world when he tinkers with the laws of Nature.
Frankenstein was the product of one of the
most famous ghost story telling sessions in history; Lord Byron, Percy
Bysshe Shelley and several others were stranded on the shores of Lake
Geneva during a particularly sodden summer. They challenged each other
to come up with the most ghastly and soul rending story their sizable
literary talents could muster and the hands-down winner came from
Shelley’s wife – Mary Shelley.
