Prodigal Son (Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein #1) Audio Book
This is not a retelling of the original novel. Instead it is a look at what comes after that first story. This is as laden with moral questions as the original novel. What are the responsibilities of the creator? Are we bound by where we come from? It looks at the meanings of life and the importance of things that we often take for granted. It looks at basic human emotions and our ability to choose. How important are these? Can we still be human without them? It approaches the ideas of what it is that makes us human. Excellent story with moving characters. Just make sure you have the second one on hand because this one leaves you in the lurch. It feels like they were suppose to be one novel rather then two. Perhaps, you should plan on having the third readily available too. I haven’t finished the second one yet, but I’ll let you know when I get to the end of it!

I love the way this guy reads. I’ve listened to a number of books narrated by him. He has energy in his voice without coming across melodramatic. He gives each character their own flavor without being hokey. He is one of my favorite narrators.
