The basic plot remained intact when transferred to other media. Swiss medical student Victor Frankenstein discovers the secret of life (which he never reveals, lest someone repeat the mistake). He then puts together a body, essentially a man, from various corpses. He then becomes horrified by the creature he has built, and abandons. The creature, suffering a great deal of neglect and abuse, still manages to get a thorough education, and learns of his lineage. After murdering Victor's younger brother, and framing the family maid, the creature tells his (admittedly) sad tale to his "father", and then demands a mate. Victor, in a panic, agrees, then thinks better of it at the last moment, destroying the new bride. In retaliation, the creature murders all of Victor's loved ones (including his wife), and leads Victor on a merry chase across the world.
Most probably know that Mary Shelley wrote this book in response to a challenge issued by Lord Byron, during a vacation at Lake Geneva. (Along with this story came John Polidori's "The Vampyre", the first English vampire novel.) Most probably also know that Shelley went on to write other works of imaginative gothic fiction.Read more ›

Beautiful story of Frankenstein and his monster. Simple easy and quick to read. Great price for a book of such quality!Published 17 hours ago by AO
It was nothing like the movies we grew up with. It was totally a different story. Since it was written in 1818, the language was stiff. It took forever to get to the point. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Amazon Customer

I always thought that Frankenstein was about a man who was obsessed to bring dead back to life. It is far from the truth and so much more. I really enjoyed it.Published 7 days ago by Dana K
Frankenstein is a timeless classic, but I still felt that some of the chapters dragged on for an unbelievably long time.Published 12 days ago by Heather E.
