Victor Frankenstein is a driven man. His single-minded scientific drive has controlled his life from childhood. It has driven him to do the unthinkable, to carry out fiendish, craven tasks, to do that which only God has done before.
His goal of creating life - a living, thinking being, a man - has come to pass. Little did he expect that his zeal would forge a monster, an intelligent being set upon Victor's complete destruction.
The story of Frankenstein has become a rightful classic of its time. The doctor and his monster stand preeminent in the culture of horror stories, an equal of the vampire and the werewolf. Mary Shelly has crafted a tale of desire, horror and despair that has stood the test of time.
