Frankenstein, everyone's read or at least seen an interpretation of it, but as i say that i realize i don't have a copy and haven't read it for quite a long time, it definitely deserves another look.

Hey. this is great book to give away today. First time I saw this book was 7th grade. A friend was reading it for her fiction assignment. I was reading Heinlein's Have Spacesuit Will Travel. When we were done we traded books :)

Worth it just for the Adam Roberts introduction, I suspect. Plus, it's a great philosophical bit of SF-ery.

I hear Mary Shelley revised it once or twice in her life time, wonder which version this is.

I read this book (followed immediately by Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde) as a pre-teen, and loved both of them so much. Later I read The Pcture of Dorian Grey and for some reason I always think of those three books together.
