Frankenstein & The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Mary Shelley, Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Posted by Erik Nilsson, May 2017

Author: Mary Shelley, Samuel Taylor Coleridge   Narrator: Clive Hayward   Language: English    Category: Classics

British Literature  

This chilling tale of a gruesome monster unleashed into the world by an unthinking scientist was first conceived by 19-year-old Mary Shelley on a dark, rainy night on Lake Geneva. Lord Byron and Percy Shelley challenged their friends to see who could come up with the most horrifying story imaginable. Mary Shelley did, terrifying them all with her nightmare-inspired tale.
Brilliantly narrated by British actor Clive Hayward, this 200th anniversary audio edition of Frankenstein is followed by “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” by Coleridge which had a haunting influence on young Mary Shelley many years before the story of Frankenstein first entered her dreams.
With fascinating commentary by Alison Larkin.

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
