Samuel Clemens / Mark Twain (1835 – 1910) American Author and Humorist
Very true! There is one book which baffles me though. It has been nearly 200 years since it was first published and it still is a best seller. The problem is people still don’t understand that Frankenstein was the scientist and not the monster in Mary Shelley’s book. 🙂
Hi Faisal. Thanks for the comment. Sorry that I can’t help you out with an answer but you are certainly right. If memory serves, the doctor’s name was Viktor von Frankenstein. Interesting bit of trivia (to me, at least): Shelley got the idea for the novel while spending the summer in Cologny on the shores of Lake Geneva, which is only a few kilometres from Geneva and not that far from where I live.
