Frankenstein, written by British author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, was first published in London in 1818.

Victor Frankenstein learns how to create life and creates a being in the likeness of man, but larger and more powerful than the average man. Frankenstein rejects the creature, and lives to regret his desire to create life, after it kills his brother William.

Frankenstein is a warning against the over-reaching of modern man and the Industrial Revolution - as alluded to in the novel's subtitle, The Modern Prometheus. Frankenstein has significantly influenced modern literature and popular culture, and spawned the mad-scientist genre of horror stories and films. Download and start listening now!

    " not bad.
    i do enjoy gothic fiction, the way they're written is facinating.
    but i still felt marginally detatched from the characters and story.
    but i watched the 94' movie with Helena Bonham Carter and i was all set :D "

    " It was kind of a hard book to read (for me). Some parts were really slow and hard to understand. But it is really a classic that everyone should read. It shows the harshness and brutality of humans towards "different" things. "

    " Interesting to read the actual story of Frankenstein. It's always nice to read the original version of a story that has been done so many times. it gives you a fresh perpective on the new retellings. "
