Frankenstein

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is one of the greatest horror stories ever written.

Mary Shelley

What you create can destroy you. 

One freezing morning, a lone man wandering across the Arctic ice caps is rescued from starvation by a ship's captain. That man is Victor Frankenstein and his story is one of ambition, murder and revenge.

As a young scientist he pushed moral boundaries in order to cross the final scientific frontier and create life. But his unnatural creation is a monster stitched together from grave-robbed body parts who has no place in the world, and his life can only lead to tragedy. (From Random House Canada)
