Editorial Reviews

A.G. Stegnall
“This vivid adaptation has been acclaimed as perhaps the most accessible edition of Mary Shelley’s brilliant novel. Philip Dossick superbly renders its dialogue and action with unique clarity and elegance.”

— A.G. Stegnall
Sheppard Jacinto
“A quick read. A great read. What makes this series of classics so successful is the way they have been lovingly crafted. Near perfect, they honor their source material and capture the humor, the drama, the passion, the excitement, the sheer narrative exuberance, that have made each of these works timeless classics.”

--Sheppard Jacinto
