Book #17: Frankenstein

Frankenstein

by Mary Shelley

Subtitled “The Modern Prometheus,” Frankenstein was written by eighteen-year-old Mary Shelley in London. The book tells the story of a scientist who attempts the power of the gods: to create life. As one of the most famous Gothic horror novels, Frankenstein continues to influence literature and culture nearly 200 years after its initial publication.

For the project, I will read an electronic copy of Frankenstein. At my default font size, the book is 167 pages in length.
