Scholastic Classics: Frankenstein

Man or monster? The original story of science gone berserk: classic but seriously gory! Imagine a human created out of corpses. Who is the monster: this tortured beast, or the man who made him? It’s hard to believe, but nearly 200 years ago Mary Shelley wrote a book that still haunts our nightmares. The mad scientist in his lab. The grotesque being sewn up out of corpses. The life zapped into him by an electric shock. The lonely monster prowling the forest. All those ideas were born right here in this iconic book: sci-fi, Gothic and steampunk all at once. What does it really take to make a human life?

  • One of the most iconic Gothic classics of all time
  • A dark tale of love, ambition, science and horror
  • Mary Shelley was a novelist, dramatist and essayist
  • Essential reading for any fan of English literature
