In the summer of 1816, Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley - the two great poets of their age - and a lovely 17-year-old named Mary Shelley were partying and reading ghost stories on the shores of Lake Geneva. They dared each other to come up with the scariest story. Young Mary was the only one to rise to the challenge, and she gave birth to the entire horror and science fiction genres by crafting a brilliant and chilling account of what it means to be human, what responsibilities we have to each other, and how far we can go in tampering with nature.
Frankenstein, published anonymously in 1818, was an instant runaway best seller! Chris Hendrie, who has appeared in several horror classics, including Psycho II, Fright Night, and Tom Holland's Twisted Tales, voices this compelling story of revolt, revenge, and, most intriguingly, one of the most gruesome and terrifying narratives ever told. This is an alarming book - in several very enjoyable ways. This is an amazingly brilliant book that sprang from the young mind of the remarkable Mary Shelley!
