Brilliant, driven Victor Frankenstein has at last realised his greatest ambition. The scientist has succeeded in creating intelligent life. But when his creature first stirs, Frankenstein realises he has made a monster. And, abandoned by its maker and shunned by everyone who sees it, the Doctor's creation sets out to destroy him and all that he holds dear.

Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN remains one of the greatest horror stories ever written, a book that chillingly captures the unforeseen terror of playing God. And the heart-stopping fear of being pursued by a powerful, relentless killer.

Press Reviews

  • Brian Aldiss

    The first novel of the scientific revolution and, incidentally, the first novel of science fiction
  • Kenneth Branagh

    Frankenstein appeals to something very primal, but it's also about profound things, the very nature of life and death and birth
  • Joyce Carol Oates

    How many fictional characters have made the great leap from literature to mythology; how many creatures of sheer language have stepped from the rhythms of their author's idiosyncratic voices into what might be called a collective cultural consciousness?
  • Michael Dirda

    The greatest novel of the Romantic movement
  • INDEPENDENT
    Mary Shelley more than made a name for herself and thrived without a formal education, becoming a trailblazing female writer in a genre still dominated by men today
