Description - Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

The idea for the story came to the author, Mary Shelley, in a dream she had about a scientist who had created life and was horrified by what he had made. This Gothic-style romance is among the first of true science fiction novels, if not the first. A young scientist named Victor Frankenstein, after going through his own near-death experience, decides to play God and create life in the form of a grotesque creature, which turns into a nightmare. Through his experience, he learns that the gift of life is precious, not disposable. His journey and personal transformation has deeply affected readers. This beautiful book comes with luxurious endpapers, a beautiful and stylish heat-burnished cover, and is a convenient trim size for easy handling. This widely popular classic tells a tale of devastating consequences for those pursuing power and glory. Frankenstein is a must-read for any lover of classic literature and science fiction.
