I had heard and listened about Frankenstein so much that I thought I had read the book for a long time but thought I had forgotten. And I know there are many people like me out there. For this reason, I read it with great enthusiasm, and I was not surprised to see how irrelevant it was with what I have in my mind. If you’re not content with the things you’ve heard, you have to read this. You’ll love Frankenstein with all your heart.
Of course, it is no coincidence that Frankenstein is so popular and still sells well despite years. When you reconsider who the real monster is, you will repeatedly question existence, nature, hunger for knowledge, human nature, and much more.
How can a book become one of the classics? What it describes and how it affects all humanity? Answers to these questions are in this book. Mary Shelley began writing the book when she was only eighteen years old. You can see the genius of the author in the subject and the narrative. You will ponder a lot about the place of man in the universe, its interaction with nature and how it changes it, and the consequences of this change. You’ll love this a lot. Enjoy!
‘Never did I behold a vision so horrible as his face, of such loathsome, yet appalling hideousness’
A twisted, upside-down creation myth, Mary Shelley’s chilling Gothic tale lays bare the dark side of science, and the horror within us all. It tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, who plunders graveyards to create a new being from the bodies of the dead – but whose botched creature causes nothing but murder and destruction. Written after a nightmare when its author was only eighteen, Frankenstein gave birth to the modern science fiction novel.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was an English novelist who wrote the Gothic novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. She also edited and promoted the works of her husband, the Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley.
