It's a long time since I read a true horror novel, so this will be fun. Did I say fun? Cue sinister music and gut-wrenching fear. My chosen read is one I've been meaning to read for a couple of decades - Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
You will rejoice to hear that no disaster has accompanied the commencement of an enterprise which you have regarded with such evil forebodings.
A stunning, enduring horror story about the dangers of Science, as the ambitious Victor Frankenstein takes his powers of creation too far and pays a terrible price when he gives life to a terrible monster. Heartbreaking, darkly funny and full of striking gothic images, FRANKENSTEIN is a true classic.
Now that is my kind of blurb. *Shudder*
I'll let you know what I think of Shelley's masterpiece next week. In the meantime, have you read Frankenstein? What was your opinion of it? If I were to read any more horror classics, which do you recommend?
