Most modern productions employ campiness or sound effects to try to bring back that gothic tension, but we've tried something different. By returning to Stoker's original storytelling structure - a series of letters and journal entries voiced by Jonathan Harker, Dr. Van Helsing, and other characters - with an all-star cast of narrators, we've sought to recapture its originally intended horror and power.
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. 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.
