A-Z Wednesday: "F"

This week's letter is "F." So I went to my shelves, and this is what I pulled out.

Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus
Written by Mary Shelley
First published 1818

Description from Good Reads:
The epic battle between man and monster reaches its greatest pitch in the famous story of Frankenstein. In trying to create life, the young student Victor Frankenstein unleashes forces beyond his control, setting into motion a long and tragic chain of events that brings Victor himself to the very brink. How he tries to destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a powerful story of love, friendship …and horror.
See the Wikipedia article about the book here.

See the Frankenstein page at Google Books here.

And a selection of some of the hundreds of covers the book has had over the years:

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
