it was amazing

Where would modern fantasy be without Mary Shelley? This harrowing tale is one that holds its rightful place in history as one of the most influential ever published. The brilliant Victor Frankenstein, in his frenzied pursuit of the mysteries of heaven and earth, unleashes a force beyond his reckoning. His creation, abhorred and shunned for his appearance, turns to rage in his bitter loneliness and seeks to destroy all that his creator holds dear. Less of a horror tale than stereotyped, this is a story of friendship, love, and loss. It reveals our responsibility to our fellow beings, the awful process of repentance and the ultimate price of vengeance.
