The epic battle between man and monster reaches its greatest pitch in the famous story of Frankenstein. In trying to create life, the young student Victor Frankenstein unleashes forces beyond his control, setting into motion a long and tragic chain of events that brings Victor himself to the very brink. How he tries to destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a powerful story of love, friendship …and horror.
You will rejoice to hear that no disaster has accompanied the commencement of an enterprise which you have regarded with such evil forebodings.
Did you know that the seeds for Frankenstein had its start in the summer of 1816 when Mary Shelley and 3 others (Lord Byron, John Polidori and Percy Bysshe Shelley) amused each other by making up ghost stories ? I didn't. Anyway, you can read or download Frankenstein by Mary Shelley for free online.
