9780099512042: Frankenstein (Vintage Magic)

What you create can destroy you.

One freezing morning, a lone man wandering across the Artic ice caps is rescued from starvation by a ship's captain. Victor Frankenstein's story is one of ambition, murder and revenge. As a young scientist he pushed moral boundaries in order to cross the final frontier and create life. But his 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.

Written when she was only nineteen, Shelley's gothic tale is one of the greatest horror stories ever published.

Review:

"A masterpiece" (Philip Pullman)

"More relevant today than ever" (Benjamin Zephaniah)

"One of the most original and complete productions of the day" (Percy Bysshe Shelley)

"I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life and stir with an uneasy, half-vital motion" (Mary Shelley)

From the Publisher:

Christopher Lee is one of the world's most iconic horror and fantasy actors - coming to prominence with the 1957 film `The Curse of Frankenstein' in which he played Frankenstein's monster. This began a long association with the film studio Hammer - with whom he made a further eleven films including the Transylvanian bloodsucker himself in the 1958 `Dracula', Kharis in `The Mummy' (1959), Sir Henry Baskerville in `The Hound of the Baskervilles' (1959) and Rasputin in `Rasputin, the Mad Monk' (1966). He also starred in two Denis Wheatley films `The Devil Rides Out (1967) and `To the Devil a Daughter' (1976).

Most recently, he has starred in `The Colour of Magic' (2008) `The Golden Compass' (2007), `Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith' (2005) & `Star Wars: Attack of the Clones' (2002) and as Saruman in the recent `The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
