The story concerns Victor Frankenstein, a scientist who joins a university in order to study chemistry and philosophy. Victor decides to create a grotesque monster that soon becomes his great foe. He has not the slightest idea that this powerful creature will destroy not only his life but also the lives of the people he love the most.
Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein is for sure one of the greatest novels ever written, and one of those that you must not skip. The story shows that by playing God you can destroy your own life and the lives of your beloved ones. Some readers will find Victor to be an excellent scientist, who transgresses boundaries without fear and manages to create something that nobody had created ever before.
