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 in Tweets hilariously reimagines Mary Shelley’s classic gothic novel in about two hundred tweets, each 140 characters or less.

@FrankenDrVictor:

A rainy Nov night under dying candle I infused the spark. A gasp! A convulsion of limbs! A yellow eye opened WTF have I done?

In this witty abridgment, Victor Frankenstein’s quest to create a sentient being is retold with the occasional emoji. The plight of his 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 upon which each tweet is derived, #Frankenstein offers modern readers an entertaining and accessible companion to a great American classic.
