Hadi soon realizes he's created a monster, one that needs human flesh to survive - first from the guilty, and then from anyone in its path. A prizewinning novel by "Baghdad's new literary star" (The New York Times), Frankenstein in Baghdad captures with white-knuckle horror and black humor the surreal reality of contemporary Iraq.

A distant cousin to Frankenstein
Do not read this with the expectation that it will closely resemble Shelly's Frankenstein, but you should expect a different, very Iraqi take on the idea. It deals with suicide bombings and average people put under unusually tough conditions. It's an interesting way of looking at the country from the people's perspective.
