Narrator Heidi Gregory delivers a unique collaboration that includes diaries Mary Shelley kept while on a European trip with her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and her stepsister. Michael January expanded upon Mary's words, creating a novel told from her point of view. Listeners will feel they are traveling on carriages and boats, observing stunning scenery, and meeting an array of townsfolk. Most gripping is visiting alchemist Johann Dippel, whose German castle inspired Shelley's novel, FRANKENSTEIN. Movingly rendered poetry, biographical information, and conversations with literary giants of the day create a winsome atmosphere. In addition to many authentic accents, Gregory's most unforgettable creation is Mary's stepmother, whose venomous attacks are ever present. January and Gregory have given new life to one of literature's most important figures. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
