There is a fine line between obsession and madness and Frankenstein just stepped across it....
Escaping the guillotine, Victor Frankenstein is now posing as Doctor Stein, altruistic patron of the hospital for the poor. But in a secret basement laboratory he is harvesting body parts from his helpless patients, using them in his twisted experiments in a bid to create the perfect man. And this time he has help from a would-be pupil. His pupil seeks knowledge, but Frankenstein desires vengeance against all those who have tried to stop his terrifying work.
The first time he tried, it ended in bloody mayhem, but now he is determined that nothing will go wrong. He wants revenge and God help anyone who gets in his way....

"Shaun Hutson has done an exceptional job in reliving the film as a novel...A worthy entry to the Hammer library and a fond memory of a film." (Robin's Reviews)
I found this audiobook to be a very interesting take on an old story, it would rank quite highly in the books I have listened to so far.
The story is very detailed & atmospheric as well as being brilliantly executed.
Sean Barrett performs all of the characters really well but especially Victor Frankenstein & Alan Lang.
No it took two sittings as the book is just under eight hours.
Sean Barrett's delivery on this story (just like 'Twins Of Evil') is absolutely superb, he has one of those sort of voices that is perfectly suited to the olden tales.
