Frankenstein - Mary Shelley - folio books
A creature of superhuman strength and hideous in appearance. Possessed of human needs and emotions and educated through books, the creature craves acceptance in society and a female companion of its own, and the failure of its creator to comply with its demands sparks a chaotic and terrifying denouement.--sound familiar?
A contemplation of manmade monsters, monstrous deeds and human morality, Mary Shelley's tale may be old but it is haunting still.
A splendid Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition with an introduction by Elizabeth Kostova and cover art by Ghost World creator Daniel Clowes.
Both films, Dracula (1992) and Frankenstein (1994), would make great Halloween movies. Even though Halloween was here a week ago, I would still watch Halloween movies a bit longer.
I feel like Mary Shelley invented Halloween with this novel. I know she didn't but do you sort of get what I mean?? Anyways its def worth reading during the holidays.
