Mary W. Shelley (1797-1851)Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin nació el 30 de agosto de 1797 en Londres (Inglaterra). Era hija única del filósofo William Godwin y la escritora feminista Mary Wollstonecraft. Mary creció y se educó en un ambiente intelectual y progresista, que marcaría fuertemente su personalidad.

Comenzó a establecer una relación amorosa en 1814 con el poeta romántico Percy B. Shelley, que en esos momentos estaba casado. La obra más importante de Mary fue creada en unas vacaciones que los Shelley estaban disfrutando en la residencia suiza de Lord Byron. En una noche tormentosa, Byron propuso la elaboración de un relato de terror por parte de cada uno de los asistentes en su mansión. Unos días después de la propuesta, Mary les leyó su creación, Frankenstein o el moderno Prometeo (1817), magistral historia que se convertiría en un clásico de la novela gótica. Murió a causa de un tumor cerebral el 1 de febrero de 1851. Tenía 53 años.

    " When I first read this, I was a freshman in high school and had no desire to read this novel, but I am very glad I did. It is a wonderful novel that invites the reader to look at oneself and the choices that we take in our own lives that can come with undesirable cost. "

    " 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 "

    " One of my all time favorites! This is NOT a book about a monster. It is a book about humanity and what it is to be human. Beautifully written. "

    " I used to teach this book toy tenth graders It was great for discussion. And it was a good one for grabbing the boys which is hard to do. "

    " 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. "

    " I had to read this for an Open Uni course - it is very good "

    " 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. "

    " interesting for scholars, reflecting the ills of the industrial society...
    not quite enjoyable as a book to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steven | 5/20/2011

    " I thought it was quite dry, the only times it became a page turner was when frankenstein was actually in the scene, and unfortunatly that was probably only an 1/8ish of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 5/19/2011

    " I enjoyed the philosophical themes in this book. Definitely a thoughtful book, not nearly the horror the movies all become. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alan | 5/18/2011

    " One of the worst written books in English but one of the great ideas in English literature. The handling of the creature within the narrative is particularly egregious. Read this as it is an important story in modern literature but also notice the nonsensical unfolding account of that creature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 5/18/2011

    " I read this book on a train bound for Scotland in 1995. It has a compelling moral: we create monsters by the way we treat or mistreat people. "
