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.


  • Incredible Story

    Who could have believed the true tale of Frankenstein was so far from the movie from so long ago. And that a young girl of 18 wrote this?! Just absolutely amazing. A spell-binding book.

    The various notions decreed upon the molecular structure tend to reserve their bequeathed apparatus on a rather peculiar element.

    It’s a great book but as you read it you become to understand many things much from the protagonist and from the been that she had created.
  • Takes time to read but overall amazing

    I love this book, extremely good when i’m half way through it. Very deep and moving at the same time. There’s some vocabs that are really hard to understand but interesting to read.
  • Sucked

    By Connor Henchey
    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
  • Good read

    This is a great book unless you are forced to read it by your teachers like I was.
  • HATED it!

    This book was hard to follow through with. The wiring used is not on the level to which any freshman in highs hook should read!
