In 1818, Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus. It was the first science fiction novel ever written, and it has continued to have a significant impact on popular culture.
The novel is about a scientist who creates an artificial human out of dead body parts. The creature is rejected by society because he looks different from everyone else, and he ends up going on a murderous rampage.
The story has been adapted into many different forms over the years, including films, television shows, and stage plays. It’s also been praised for its exploration of themes such as the nature of good and evil, the dangers of science, and the need for companionship.
Frankenstein is considered to be one of the first science fiction novels ever written. However, many people consider it to be more horror than sci-fi because there’s no futuristic technology involved in its plotline at all—just magical potions made by alchemists! Either way though: this book is definitely not boring!
The novel has had a significant impact on popular culture and has been referenced in many works of fiction such as video games like Resident Evil 4 which features an enemy called “The Regenerators” who look like zombies
