Mary Shelley's classic tale of the devastating consequences of playing God, widely regarded as the first genuine science fiction novel Brilliant, driven, Victor Frankenstein has at last realized his greatest ambition: the scientist has succeeded in creating intelligent life. But when his creature first stirs, Frankenstein realizes he has made a monster. 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 classic novel remains one of the greatest horror stories ever written, a book that chillingly captures the unforeseen terror of playing God and the heartstopping fear of being pursued by a powerful, relentless killer.
