Mary Shelley’s classic 1818 novel "Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus" comes to life in this multi-touch edition from Providence eLearning. Beautifully narrated and enhanced with a digitally linked glossary, review questions, and  HD Video Lectures that provide a chapter by chapter explanation of the work. British Literature expert, William Lasseter, takes you on a virtual tour through the dark and tormented story of Victor Frankenstein.
 Mary Shelley's work follows the story of a man who  uncovers the secret of life and must face the catastrophic consequences for his Promethean audacity. Nearly 200 years after being penned, “Frankenstein” remains one of the most enduring stories in fictional horror. This complex and layered work becomes much more approachable for students and teachers thanks to this 21st century text.


  • Great-very helpful

    The review videos at the end of each section are very useful and great for preparing for class. Also it is nice to listen to the audio while reading because it keeps your focus and allows the material to really sink in. Overall a great purchase and well worth it!

    I just used this book for my English class and I really liked it. The quizzes at the end of each chapter were really helpful and the video and audio features were great too. Highly recommend this.

    I just used this eBook for my English class and it was really cool! I loved the quizzes and the audio parts that were built in the book! The editing tools were also really cool and I enjoyed having a notes page where I could see all of my notes by what I had highlighted.
  • Love This eBook

    By C. Goodman
    I just had a small group of students use this book while participating in socratic seminar and class discussion. They loved it. The built-in quizzes and lecture videos allowed the teacher to "flip" much of the content. We all particularly enjoyed the audio feature which allows students to listen to the audio while following along with the text. Great Product!
  • Great way to experience great literature!

    By A Homeschool Consultant
    This "video enhanced" textbook is the ideal way to present this text and other great pieces of literature to high school students, especially homeschool students. The lectures help the reader interpret the text. The glossary is cross referenced and as usual, the iBook features like on-the-fly definitions make this the best way to read Frankenstein. It also has audio narrations, which are extremely helpful for dyslexics and those with visual disabilities. For those who have never read Frankenstein before because the size intimidates you, this is a great way to tackle this work. If you have read it before, the video lectures may surprise you, as it did me, how much I missed before having someone to guide me through all the complexities of the story.
