Scholastic Classics: Frankenstein

The original story of science gone berserk: old-school but seriously gory! Imagine a human created out of corpses. Who is the monster: this tortured beast, or the man who made him? It’s hard to believe, but nearly 200 years ago Mary Shelley wrote a book which still shapes our nightmares today. The mad scientist in his lab. The grotesque being sewn together out of corpses. The life zapped into him by an electric shock. The lonely monster prowling the forest. All of these ideas were born right here. Sci-fi, Gothic and steampunk all at once, this iconic book will haunt you forever. What does it really take to make a human life?
