Mary Shelley's timeless gothic novel presents the epic battle between man and monster at its greatest literary pitch.

Thoughts: I quite enjoyed it.  I think that this book should serve as a cautionary tale about creating something that can get beyond our control and that man's selfishness often creates things that makes us feel as though we are god-like.
