Though many know the film adaptation, the novel of Frankenstein (by Mary Shelly) is an exciting story told through letters between Captain Robert Walton and his sister, and then later Victor Frankenstein himself. The story follows Victor as he brings the now famous monster into existence, and what actions happen as a result. While the idea may be familiar, the beautiful prose, deep thematic elements, and rich metaphors set Frankenstein apart from most other books. Beyond those themes, the novel is also known for its discussion of the soul and commentary on what exactly gives meaning to human life

Review:

Frankenstein, loved by many decades of readers and praised by such eminent literary critics as Harold Bloom, seems hardly to need a recommendation. If you haven't read it recently, though, you may not remember the sweeping force of the prose, the grotesque, surreal imagery, and the multilayered doppelgänger themes of Mary Shelley's masterpiece. As fantasy writer Jane Yolen writes of this (the reviewer's favorite) edition, "The strong black and whites of the main text [illustrations] are dark and brooding, with unremitting shadows and stark contrasts. But the central conversation with the monster--who owes nothing to the overused movie image ... but is rather the novel's charnel-house composite--is where [Barry] Moser's illustrations show their greatest power ... The viewer can all but smell the powerful stench of the monster's breath as its words spill out across the page. Strong book-making for one of the world's strongest and most remarkable books." Includes an illuminating afterword by Joyce Carol Oates.
