Frankenstein is the most successful Gothic novel in history and is also considered to be one of the earliest examples of science fiction. The story is partially based on Giovanni Aldini's electrical experiments on dead and (sometimes) living animals. It has had a considerable influence across literature and popular culture and helped spawn a complete genre of horror novels and films.
