Frankenstein is set during a time when there were many new scientific discoveries and anything seemed possible. Anything. Victor Frankenstein becomes obsessed with creating life and works hard to prove it can be done. His dream quickly becomes everyone's nightmare.
Frankenstein asks questions about the danger and responsibility of knowledge and the notion that pride must have its fall. Mary Shelly's classic tale of terror is brought to life through fantastic gothic illustrations and is adapted for students of all ages.
"This is a very well written book that will relate well to many young readers. It is recommended as a basic book for any secondary school library."
