Frankenstein, loved by many decades of readers and praised by eminent literary critics, is renowned for the sweeping force of its prose, the grotesque, surreal imagery, and the multilayered doppelganger themes of Mary Shelley's masterpiece. Readers can nearly smell the powerful stench of the monster's breath as Shelley's words spill out across the page. Strong book-making for one of the world's strongest and most remarkable books.
