'Victor Frankenstein, a Swiss scientist, has a great ambition: to create intelligent life. But when his creature first stirs, he realizes he has made a monster. A monster which, abandoned by his master and shunned by everyone who sees it, sets out to destroy Dr Frankenstein with murder and horrors to the very ends of the earth.' (Source: Penguin)
'Frankenstein is the story of a young scientist who learns the secret of creating life. Fueled by a burning ambition for fame and glory, Frankenstein builds a hideous patchwork body out of scavenged corpses, but no sooner does he animate the gruesome creature than he abandons it in horror.
Longing for love and companionship, the monster looks elsewhere for affection, but finds himself cruelly shunned wherever he goes. At last--grotesque and misunderstood, frustrated and alone--the creature turns to violence and hate.
Frankenstein's reckless experiment is doomed to failure, ending in tragedy and ruin as the raging monster wreaks his revenge.' (Source: Publisher's blurb)
