This startling novel, unlike the Gothic trend of vampires and ghosts, dealt with a really plausible scenario: creating a being out of body parts and bringing it to life. Yet the adventurous spirit, akin to that of atomic scientists, face the Faustian bargain: What if they succeed? And they don't like what they have accomplished?
And remember, this was an 18-year-old girl who wrote the book!
