Frankenstein

by Mary Shelley - £5.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141198965 | ISBN 10: 0141198966

'Never did I behold a vision so horrible as his face, of such loathsome, yet appalling hideousness'
 
The scientist Victor Frankenstein, obsessed with possessing the secrets of life, creates a new being from the bodies of the dead. But his creature is a twisted, gruesome parody of a man who, rejected for his monstrous appearance, sets out to destroy his maker.
 
Mary Shelley's chilling Gothic tale, conceived after a nightmare in 1816 when she was only eighteen, became a modern myth. It is a disturbing and dramatic exploration of birth and death, creation and destruction, and one of the most iconic horror stories of all time.
