A brash young doctor named Victor Frankenstein wants to unlock the secrets to life itself and create the perfect human. Instead, he animates—and abandons—a horrific creature who from its moment of birth is shunned by society and refused all compassion and love. Frankenstein must either face his creature and pay for his hubris, or watch as those he loves pay with their lives.Although Frankenstein was a bestseller when first published in 1818, Shelley heavily revised the 1831 edition to reflect her radically altered outlook on life (from free will to fatalism) as well as to blunt criticisms that her story was ‘immoral.’ This faithful reissue of the beautiful and evocative 1818 horror story restores the author’s original tale—considered by many to be the first science fiction book in the English language.
