Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley. Ebook.
Consumed with the secret of life and creation, Swiss researcher and scientist Dr. Victor Frankenstein patches together a body and figured out the scientific secrets to animating life once more. And one fateful night, he does just that. When the monster opens his eyes, the doctor is repulsed: his vision of perfection is, in fact, a horrible monster. Dr. Frankenstein abandons his creation; however the monster will not be ignored, setting in movement a chain of violence and horror that shadows Victor to his death.
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, a truly gripping story about the principles of creation and the repercussions of grief and sorrow. Frankenstein is one of the most prominent Gothic books in British literature. It is as pertinent today as it is haunting.
Shelley began writing the story when she was just nineteen, and the book was published when she was twenty-one. Shelley had taken a trip in the region of Geneva, where much of the story occurs, and the topics of galvanism and other similar occult concepts were themes of conversation among her companions, especially her future partner, Percy Shelley. The story emerged from a dream. Mary, Percy, Lord Byron, and John Polidori chose to have a competition to see who could develop the best scary story.
After mulling over for weeks about what her possible story might be, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who developed life and was frightened by what he had made.
She then wrote Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus.
