LibriVox recording of The Monster Men by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Read in English by Mark Nelson
Dr. Arthur Maxon has a dream: to create an artificial human being! His first twelve experiments have resulted only in grotesque, subhuman monsters. But Number Thirteen is perfect, and will make an ideal mate for Virginia, Dr. Maxon’s only daughter. But his monstrous plan goes awry when it is disrupted by pirates and Maxon’s duplicitous assistant, Carl von Horn. - Summary by Mark Nelson

Typical stereotypes, but great reader
A fun story, but it has the typical stereotypes: a fairly helpless female who faints at the most inopportune times; a sneaky, spying Chinese man (who is still a "good guy"); a god-like hero; treacherous natives. The story did wrap up in a way I was not expecting, which was nice.
The reader is excellent.
Giving this 4 stars just because of the stupid stereotypes.
