Brilliant, driven Victor Frankenstein has at last realised his greatest ambition. The scientist has succeeded in creating intelligent life. But when his creature first stirs, Frankenstein realises he has made a monster. And, abandoned by its maker and shunned by everyone who sees it, the Doctor's creation sets out to destroy him and all that he holds dear.

Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN remains one of the greatest horror stories ever written, a book that chillingly captures the unforeseen terror of playing God. And the heart-stopping fear of being pursued by a powerful, relentless killer.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The first novel of the scientific revolution and, incidentally, the first novel of science fiction -- Brian Aldiss
Frankenstein appeals to something very primal, but it's also about profound things, the very nature of life and death and birth -- Kenneth Branagh
How many fictional characters have made the great leap from literature to mythology; how many creatures of sheer language have stepped from the rhythms of their author's idiosyncratic voices into what might be called a collective cultural consciousness? -- Joyce Carol Oates
The greatest novel of the Romantic movement -- Michael Dirda

“Frankenstein: Or, the Modern Prometheus”

Oh the loneliness portrayed in this classic is heart breaking. One feels anger at Victor, creator of a being crudely constructed from body parts of corpses. It can be a cruel, cruel world.
