If you are looking to read Frankenstein for free on your Nook, this is the one to get. While there are a few random characters in the text, this version is by far the easiest to read.

This edition is very close to the 1818 original. Mary Shelley gave Victor Frankenstein a break in the 1831 rewrite. In this version Victor, and by implication you and me, is clearly responsible for his actions. The failure of the 1831 edition was to allow Victor off the hook. History has been gentle on Victor Frankenstein. Read this book and decide who is the monster.
