Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since it was first published in 1818, Mary Shelleys seminal novel has generated countless print, stage, and screen adaptations, but none has ever matched the power and philosophical resonance of the original. Composed as part of a challenge with Byron and Shelley to conjure up the most terrifying ghost story, the novel's protagonist, Victor Frankenstein, narrates the chilling tale of creating a "monster" and the catastrophic consequences that ensue.

Synopsis:

Depicting the beauty of the written word, the handsome books in this series present an assortment of universal literature, from the drama of Shakespeare to the works of many well-known authors from the first half of the 20th century. Demostrando la belleza del arte de las letras, los libros elegantes en esta coleccion reunen a los grandes clasicos de la literatura, desde el drama de Shakespeare hasta los autores mas representativos de la literatura de la primera mitad del siglo XX.

A very interesting but classic novel. To be honest, I was surprised how different the book is to all the classic movies based on the original book by Shelley. Definitely worth reading as you can actually understand and read the author's portrayal of Frankenstein, instead of some Hollywood director's.
