Iola Reads

The Winter 2019 Iola Reads selection is Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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. Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts, but upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature’s hideousness. Tormented by isolation and loneliness, the once-innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator, Frankenstein.  Frankenstein became an instant bestseller upon publication two centuries ago and is now an enduring classic, as well as an important ancestor of both the horror and science fiction genres.
