Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus
(THE GREAT CLASSICS LIBRARY)
This novel needs no introduction - or maybe it does? Because this it the ORIGINAL tale which gave birth to so many movies, take-offs, imitations, etc. Shelley wrote the novel at eighteen, as part of a contest between herself and her famous housemates as to who could write the best horror tale (presumably, she won).
This original version (told at first through letters) starts in an ice field in the North Pole and has a far darker if also tormented monster. Oh, and there's no Igor.
