Frankenstein: Or The Modern Prometheus
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Nov 12, 2016 - 178 pages
Frankenstein is a novel written in epistolary form, documenting a fictional correspondence between two characters. This novel tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque but sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Frankenstein is full of elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement but, at same time, it is an early example of science fiction. A must read classic.
