Narrators John Sackville and Perdita Weeks expertly deliver the two timeframes of this inventive novel. Winterson imagines what might happen when humans are supplanted by a variety of man-made replacements, the arrival of which is closer than many of us think. Weeks portrays nineteenth-century author Mary Shelley, a woman ahead of her time with her story of the tragically flawed doctor who cobbles together a human and animates him. Sackville conveys the quirky love-struck tones of contemporary characters who encounter today's Frankensteins, ranging from AIs to sex dolls. He clearly projects both wonderment and disdain for what may come with homo sapiens' potential demotion in the intellectual and social hierarchy of Planet Earth. Weeks's voice has a soft pitch and a longing tone, while Sackville offers an array of voices and accents. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
