Mary Shelley's post-apocalyptic novel is incredibly interesting, as this is a pre-atomic era vision of the end of the world. A lot of the same tropes you see trotted out on fare like THE WALKING DEAD are on parade here.

Not as good or as absorbing a novel as FRANKENSTEIN, but to be fair, few books are. The last third is definitely the best part.
