EXCEPTIONAL UNABRIDGED EDITION

Read the greatest horror novel of all time in a beautifully presented edition.

"Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus", first published in 1818, was written by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, an English author.
It tells the story of committed science student Victor Frankenstein. Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts. But upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature's hideousness.

This novel, an instant bestseller, is considered to be one of the earliest examples of both the horror and science fiction genres.
It not only tells a terrifying story, but also raises profound, disturbing questions about the very nature of life, the dangers of science and the place of humankind within the cosmos.

This scary and enthralling timeless story is a must-read of classic literature and will make you shiver!

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.
