Famously written on a dare by the author's famous friend, poet Lord Byron, this bloodcurdling Gothic horror novel is one of the most haunting stories of all time. It recounts the tragic events in the life of young doctor Frankenstein and the dreadful consequences of his attempt at creating artificial life. More than 100 years after its publication, it remains a brilliant and essential reflection on scientific ethics, as well a literary masterpiece.Durante el lluvioso verano de 1816, cuatro de los escritores ingleses más talentosos de su tiempo se dieron cita en Villa Diodati. La mansión a orillas del lago Ginebra fue el escenario en que Lord Byron, John Polidori, Percy Bysshe Shelley y Mary Shelley se retaron a escribir una historia de terror. Aquel juego llevó a la autora londinense a crear Frankenstein, una de las grandes cimas del horror gótico y una brillante reflexión sobre la ética científica. La novela narra el intento de un joven estudiante de medicina de crear vida artificial y las terribles consecuencias de su experimento.
