Scouring Books: Frankenstein

by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

originally published in 1823

I read this in college for a science class (I guess as a cautionary tale, but it was easily one of my favorite classes regardless), which to my mind is something of a travesty, that it took me so long, because it's easily now one of my favorite books, so much richer than the Hollywood tradition (even with the underappreciated Branagh/De Niro version considered) would lead you to believe, not so much a horror story as a psychological thriller that still sets the standard almost two hundred years later. The version that provides this entry was published by Scholastic.

Bookshelf status: read.
