Description

Written when she was only 19, Frankenstein is Mary Shelley's most famous novel. This gothic horror classic tells the story of the brilliant but tortured scientist Victor Frankenstein and the monster he built from exhumed body parts. Often interpreted as warning against the changes that science and the industrial revolution brought upon humanity, this sorrowful retelling of the creation myth has had an unparalleled influence on literature and popular culture and has been hailed as a forerunner of modern science fiction.

    The movie was way better I had to read this for school but then when I learned the book was different from the movie I had to read the book and it was SOOOOOO boring. I hope someone shows this to the author so she can rewrite this

    At first, when I started reading, I was intimidated by the language. Thank god I continued. What fantastic artistry Mary Shelley created and It has imbued within me a love of reading I had thought lost.
