Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley published her book year 1818 in London. Little did she know the impact it would have on the world!

Very often we call the artificial man for Frankenstein but the reality is that his maker was a doctor - Victor Frankenstein!

A scientist with madness and determenation to create a living creature. The most famous actor is Boris Karloff as you can see here on the photo. The scientist used parts of animals and humans and put together this poor monster.

Books to read

When I have read this book and watched the movies, I always feel sorry inside. This monster did not ask to be created. A wild scientist played with life and it came alive.

Some days I feel like this.

Mary Shelley

Mary Shelleys Biography

Just use this link to read about the very special writer. Her famous parents William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, and husband and how many more books she actually wrote!

Why did she write a book like this one?

I wonder if she had a dark side.

May be she was mentally disturbed.

What do you think?

Why did a young English girl write this book?

Five movies on two discs

There are so many different movies made about this "monster". But still in the end, we feel sorry for him. He is evil but has feelings. He has no future and no real life to live.

A monster is born

      Actually Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein for a contest with a couple of friends John Polidori, & Lord Byron (who wrote about Vampyre before stoker did.) as well as her husband percy. (polidori wrote his Vampyre Tale in 1819. I have heard of Lord Byron but trying to find him in one of my books has proven difficult. He's not listed in an index and such. Though if you want you might find something on my Dracula Day or Vivacious vampires lenses.

      Excellent, I'm voting for you in the book club contest. I love the classic horror tales and movies. I am now inspired to publish a lens in this topic too.
