The tale of Dr. Frankenstein and the horrendous monster he unleashes on the world when he tinkers with the laws of nature had almost as strange a birth as the monster itself. It was the product of one of the most famous ghost story telling sessions in history. Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and several others were stranded on the shores of Lake Geneva during a particularly sodden summer.
Jacobi relishes the language - Superbly read.

A true horror classic. The style of writing is amazing. In My ooinion Second only to Dracula in the genre and a close second at that.
