Young Swiss scientist Victor Frankenstein decides to make a human being. After months of hard study, he makes a huge creature out of different human organs. He then discovers a method of bringing it to life. However, when the creature opens its eyes, Victor is terrified because his creature looks like a terrible monster. He runs from his laboratory and becomes very ill for almost two years.
After he recovers from his illness, he meets with the creature. The creature tells Victor how he has suffered for the past two years. He tries to be friendly to people, but no one likes him, and they attack him because he is so ugly. He has been so angry with Victor and has killed his younger brother.
After telling his story, the creature demands that Victor make another creature, a female one to be his companion. If Victor does as he asks, he will go away with the new creature and never bother Victor again.
Will Victor agree?
This book is rewritten from "Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus" by the English author Mary Shelley (1797- 1851), which has been translated into over 100 languages and made into plays and movies many times.
