This is a stunningly repackaged edition of Mary Shelley's classic gothic horror story. Few narratives can rival the way in which Shelley's gothic masterpiece captured the human imagination. The enduring appeal of the tale created its own monster in the form of the myriad of gory adaptations and whimsical pastiches of the work. These can lead one to forget the powerful, engrossing and thought-provoking nature of the original. In Frankenstein, the creature that has become the grotesque caricature we all know so well raises pertinent questions about science and responsibility that are more relevant today than ever before.
