Summary
"Tweet by tweet, a classic unfolds. Few classic works of literature have excited such enduring popular interest among the general public as Frankenstein. But suppose the characters--Victor Frankenstein, Captain Robert Walton, and, yes, even the "monster"--had shared their tale in tweets? #Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus hilariously reimagines Mary Shelley's classic gothic novel in about two hundred tweets, each 280 characters or less. In this witty abridgment, Victor Frankenstein's quest to create a sentient being is retold with the occasional emoji. The plight of this monstrous creation is presented with internet acronyms. And Captain Robert Walton ponders the blinding power of ambition with hashtags. Including an appendix that presents the original passages from which each tweet is derived, #Frankenstein offers modern readers an entertaining and accessible companion to a great American classic."----Jacket flap
