It should be noted that this edition of Frankenstein is in FRENCH.
classic horror seems much better than most new stuff, in my opinion.
This is a classic. Enough said.
Cover has a shadowed, stone entryway on it.
The photo shown for this book is for another book completely--this is merely an abridged edition of Frankenstein for young (aged 9-13) readers; it does NOT include anything by Stephen King, Dracula, nor Jekyll and Hyde. It only has Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, abridged by Dale Bick Carlson.
Mary Shelley's classic novel with 8 pages of photographs in the center of the book from the Kenneth Branagh film in which he starred along with Helena Bonham Carter, Aidan Quinn, Ian Holm, Tom Hulce, John Cleese and Robert De Niro.
I guess I based my presumption of this book on all the movies. Frankenstein is not the creature who I thought he was. I found myself feeling sorry for him. Wishing that someone would reach out to him. Mary Shelley left it to your imagination on really what he looked like. I enjoyed this portion to. The book was exquisitely written. I felt I was actually transported to this era. Enjoyed it very much.
Not as Horror-y as I had imagined, slow moving and moving, HAHA. Would reccomend this for people who like classic Lit rather than stuff Steven King writes.
Sealed new cassettes of book!
Now Age illustrated paperback, about 60 pages black and white comic-type presentation. Last page has several vocabulary words to know and several study questions to check comprehension. Great book for reluctant middle school reader
Was a great story, but I found some parts could have been expanded and other parts were too wordy. Still a great classic.
The book is unabridged with annotations. The annotations help greatly with the references she makes to other books and her husbands work.
This classic has been retold for younger readers.
A classic, of course ... if you didn't read this in school, read it now!
"At once a Gothic thriller, a passionate romance, and a cautionary tale about the dangers of science, 'Frankenstein' tells the story of committed science student Victor Frankenstein." This book just increases my love for science fiction.
Classic tale of horror and suspense.
Complete and unabridged.
My 9 year old son likes the story of Frankenstein, and said this book was okay, but they ended it with the death of Victor Frankenstein, and he knows there's more. My son didn't feel this was scary, so it would be a good introduction of the story to a young but advanced reader.
This 1965 edition of the 1831 classic includes an introduction written by Mary Shelley for the first edition. This is the story of Victor Frankenstein and the havoc caused by his monstrous alter ego.
GREAT CLASSIC, BETTER THAN THE MOVIEW
Most have read this book at one time or another, but it really isn't a horror story, but more about the human condition and about people being unkind to those that differ from them.
