Frankenstein’s Cat: Cuddling Up to Biotech’s Brave New Beasts

Emily Anthes, read by Hillary Huber. Tantor Media, unabridged, five CDs, 6.5 hrs., $34.99 ISBN 978-1-4526-1443-4
Anthes tours the intersection of the animal kingdom and human sciences, showing different examples of how humans are reshaping animal life for good, questionable, and trivial purposes. From reproducing and reprograming genes to creating animal prosthetics, Anthes reveals the curious ways humans have come to use and support animal lives with little regard for the consequence of their actions. Narrator Hillary Huber turns in a mixed performance. While she can imbue her narration with tone and personality, she also reads with a nasally projection that feels removed. Despite this performance, the combination of narration and content will keep listeners engaged throughout the production. An FSG/Scientific American hardcover. (June)
