Overview


Conceived as part of a literary game among friends in 1816, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is today regarded as a classic piece of 19th century literature. The story begins with the journey of an adventurer, Robert Walton, who saves the life of a man at the North Pole. That man, Victor Frankenstein, tells Walton about his experiments with the creation of life and how he ended up at the North Pole. Through this simple plot device, Shelley was able to deal with serious real-world issues like acceptance, tolerance, and understanding, as well as the universal human need for companionship and love. The novel, of course, inspired a host of films, from the 1931 classic starring Boris Karloff to Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein, and more recently, a series of novels by Dean Koontz. This version, though slightly abridged, retains much of the original dialogue and remains true to Shelley’s brilliant vision.

I teach 8th grade Language Arts and everyday I have to fight with some of my kids to read, and read something with substance, but recently have been buying graphic novels that have an actual story and that have been recommended. This Frankenstein I can't keep on my shelf. My kids who only read manga or graphic novels will read this and not have any idea that this is considered a classic. They love it. I've got students checking it out who don't read unless they are forced. I am so glad that I purchased this for my classroom.
