Books of Horror - The Classics (33 books items)

"The epic battle between man and monster reaches its greatest pitch in the famous story of Frankenstein. In trying to create life, the young student Victor Frankenstein unleashes forces beyond his control, setting into motion a long and tragic chain of events that brings Victor himself to the very brink. How he tries to destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a powerful story of love, friendship …and horror."

GruntLogic's Favorite Books (100 books items)

"If there were ever a situation where the book is better than the movie, this is it. In fact, most movies about Frankenstein seem to have almost no relation to the book at all, it's as though it were a completely different story. The creature may be one of the most sympathetic characters ever created."

"Before you get too excited about having your clone or some other cyborg cleaning your house and picking up the dry cleaning…just remember that the cost of the convenience might be the life of your brother, your wife, your friend, and eventually when you track the rogue creature down, you will come really close to revenge but just get sick and die. And to top it off, somehow people will dress up as the beast and also feel sympathy towards him, because it wasn’t even his fault that he was crea"

Amazing Books (18 books items)

"Mary Shelley really knew how to write, probably had some of her skills honed by her poet husband. Either way, this novel is fantastic and beautifully written. How Frankenstein's Monster reads Paradise Lost like a Bible is so intelligent, as is the monster. The monster goes from evil to good, and Frankenstein goes from good to bad, all slowly but surely."

20 Sci-Fi Novels that Will Change Your Life (20 books items)

"This is the first modern mad scientist novel, which set the stage for so many mad scientist tales of the next 200 years. You've got the lab full of bubbly stuff, experiments with lightning, stolen body parts, humans brought back from the dead, monsters, and a man who wants to play god. Just try to name a mad science story that doesn't have a little Frankenstein in it. This book changed your life already by creating an entire subgenre of science fiction devoted to science run amok."
