Publisher's Summary

Viktor Frankenstein ist von der Idee besessen, das Elixier des Lebens zu finden. In einer düsteren Novembernacht gelingt ihm das Unfassbare: Aus Leichenteilen, die er aus Friedhöfen zusammengetragen hat, formt er einen menschenähnlichen Körper, ein überdimensionales, hässliches Monstrum und haucht ihm Leben ein. Das Monster lernt schnell und versucht vergeblich die Zuneigung anderer Menschen zu erlangen. In seiner Isolation verflucht es seinen Schöpfer.

really an excellent book

let's not forget that this was written in 1818, and what other author from that era would you want to read or could you understand if you did try to read her or him? if georgette heyer really were jane austen you'd not have half as much fun. someone should really update frankenstein in english, making the book palatable for modern readers. in german, it's a different matter. everybody reads those novelettes by early 19th century classics, and anyway, the german language hasn't really progressed as far as has english or american, so reading frankenstein in a german translation is not totally unlike reading some contemporary text. so it's fun, just about anybody can understand every word of it, and the interest does not even diminish during those philosophical passages, because, after all, they are REAL. so this is a great novel, curiously, made greater through the magic of translation.
