Frankenstein is a gothic fiction novel.

A gothic fiction is a genre that combines horror and romances. The effect of Gothic fiction depends on a pleasing sort of terror and an extension of essentially Romantic literary.
Features of Gothic fiction include terror (both psychological and physical), mystery, the supernatural, ghosts, haunted houses and Gothic architecture, castles, darkness, death, decay, doubles, madness, secrets and hereditary curses.

Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus is an 1818 novel. It was written by Mary Shelley at the age of 19. It was published anonymous, but in 1831 a new edition was under her own name. The title refers to a scientist who learns how to create a monster with body parts taken from the dead people. In modern popular culture, people have tended to refer to Frankenstein's monster as "Frankenstein" (the name of the doctor who creates it). It was a warning against the "over-reaching" of modern man and industrial revolution.
