The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of the most thought-provoking stories, this classic story of a scientific creation that takes matters into its own hands created a literary landmark. Although written almost two hundred years ago, it still raises fascinating issues about controlling life. Like many other scientists before and since, Victor Frankenstein is sure that he can create intelligent life. Working away in his laboratory, at last he succeeds but, little does he know how his creature will turn out. Chaos ensues when the monster turns against his maker. Written as a series of letters, Frankenstein is a gripping read and this unabridged edition gives the opportunity to enjoy it in full.
Why not check out Kenneth Oppel's This Dark Endeavour, which he has written as a prequel to Mary Shelley's gothic classic, Frankenstein. 16-year-old Victor Frankenstein begins a dark journey where dangerous alchemy and a bitter love triangle threaten his quest at every turn and will change his life forever. The story follows Victor Frankenstein - together with his beloved cousin Elizabeth and reliable friend, Henry - on a desperate quest to create the forbidden Elixir of Life. It's an alluring story for young adult readers.
