From publisher blurb:
Frankenstein's Monster was created by Victor Frankenstein as an experiment in the creation of life. The monster itself is nameless; Frankenstein never saw fit to name his creation, and the monster's lack of identity is a source of despair for it.
8 feet tall, with yellow skin, the monster was hideously ugly. The towering, grotesque figure was shunned by all who see him.
Upon creating his monster, Frankenstein fled from it in horror and disavowed it. The monster was forced to wander the wilderness and eke out a meagre existence. During this time it managed to educate itself - no mere golem, this, the monster became eloquent and well-mannered.
