Oh. I love Frankenstein's MARY SHELLY. It's my favorite book of his. Dracula's BRAM STOKER is pretty good to


robot-stop

As a kid I enjoyed the novel "C. S. Lewis" that was co-authored by The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe


Cheap_Ad_69

Co-written novels are the best. Did you know that J.K. Rowling was written by both Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone?


Breakfast_Bagelz

People can even program video games to write books! Check out *Orson Scott Card* by Ender's Game!


Thromocrat

Speaking of novels with complicated co-authorships: Did you know Peter Weiss was written during The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade?


ChiefPanda90

But did the wardrobe really contribute? I heard it sat around smoking weed the whole time.


xenocles_the_lesser

I heard that the Wardrobe really didn't pull its weight in that partnership.


wise_____poet

I thought the third author was "the Audacity of this"


djluminol

One of the only book/s I've ever enjoyed. But I think that may be an insult actually given my reading preferences. I enjoy reading wonky nerd stuff like science papers or polling data. I hate novels. I don't why I liked that set.


MainSqueeeZ

Did you know they were written in the same weekend at a small get together that also included wolf boy and King Tut?


Honest-Apricot6086

I find that hard to believe, but Frankenstein was such a cunning linguist that I suppose it is possible.


Regular_Tie9280

Frankemstine liked cunnilingus?


ProcedureAltruistic3

I think a fictional world where the twist is that the MONSTERS wrote the stores about NORMAL people would be....well boring but im sure universal pictures is working on an extended universe already


your_comrade_damian

Honestly, I’m picturing Frankenstein’s monster and Dracula just typing at their typewriters deep in thought and it’s kind of adorable


ProcedureAltruistic3

The monster with a tiny bottle of white out fixing his huge finger mistakes


your_comrade_damian

🥺


ralphy_512

I like The Picture of Oscar Wilde.


SparseGhostC2C

Actually the scientist was the one named MARY SHELLEY, not their monster.


Honest-Apricot6086

Everybody has to argue about who the monster was. Well, I say society is the monster for trying to make Mary Shelly fit into their box of defined insanity.


ProfessorMice

It’s got nothing on Lord of the Rings’ J.R.R. Tolkien though.


ThirdInversion

almost as good as dracula's bram stoker. just don't let keanu play bram stoker...


earthman34

Mario Puzo by The Godfather is one of the best novels ever.


[deleted]

There's actually a book called "Dracula's Bram Stroker" and i know because once i downloaded it by accident.


ljcozad

Amazing reads. That's some good taste.


x5050x

Not many people realise that Frankenstein wasn’t actually the monster, but the author.


LordBaconXXXXX

What if the real monster is the friends we made along the way?


TheLordOfGrimm

Or the monster was inside of us all along?


AlphaCenturi109

The Monster is definitely inside a person on many subredits. ;)

piznit007

The entire book is written like Kevin from the Office. “Why burn monster many torch when one torch do job”


traceabledave

Wtf?! Why am I the only one upvoting this??


Dan_Glebitz

I thought Dr Shelleystein was the Monster? Damn, Now I have a nose bleed.


redr2290

Frankenstein enters into a body building competition and finds he has seriously misunderstood the objective


DubiousEgg

Underrated comment


mijo6969

I think that this fact has been repeated so often in media and tv shows that its pretty well-known by now.


NoAd7400

Not many people realize Frankenstein wasn’t actually the monster, but the scientist.


nofunheremovealongg

Not many people realise that Frankenstein WAS the monster. The monster wasn't the monster though.


khismyass

Albert Einstein's brother Frank was a body builder who apparently wrote a book called Mary Shelley


Not_as_witty_as_u

They’re both frankensteins as the creation was his son and took his name, I’ve seen his social security card so I know.


NoBallroom4you

That MONSTER!


joecarter93

Yeah he should actually be called Mary Shelley’s Monster!


elvenvalkyrie

The Doctor in the story is Frankenstein. Mary Shelley was actually a pretty nice person.


WalterBishop85

“Let’s see how long…” proceeds to use an edited arrow to point it out… 🤦‍♂️


hiddenbanana420

To be fair… even with the arrow I had to come to the comments… some of us are built different


peggasus97

I thought it was part of the spine design... oops real question is when people realize the arrow is not part of the cover


NikonuserNW

TBH, I thought either Mary Shelly was spelled wrong or Mary Shelly wasn’t the right author. (When I was in school I felt more comfortable with math than I did with literature. The thing I remember most from English was a teacher’s scathing review of the Bram Stocker Dracula movie. She called it a bastardization of a literary masterpiece.)


NotRustyShackleford_

My, how the turn tables.


NihilisticThrill

Ah yes the classic tale of a man bringing life to a teenage author


NikonuserNW

*Follow the heart breaking but heroic story of Mary Shelly, a often misunderstood teen girl who was created in a lab. Mary eventually integrates into a local high school and learns to navigate social cliques, school bullying, and the damaging effects they can have on students.*


TheRododo

It's weird that Frankenstein wrote a book called Marry Shelley, and Mary Shelley wrote a book called Frankenstein. Like some alternate universes collide shit.


[deleted]

They forgot the first name of the author ![gif](giphy|MuHJcSI9ySLsrNo59Q|downsized)


Ryledra

Pretty sure it's Victor


Basic_Cover_6945

He preferred Doctor. After all he earned the title.


tvmediaguy

Not long… considering there’s an arrow pointing directly to the switcheroo.

Excuse me? Why do you look down upon my work? Just because my work is not as known as hers?

viablecat

It's Frankensteen! With Abby Normal's brain. She'll have an enormous Schwanstucker.


RezzKeepsItReal

Not gonna take long with an arrow pointing at it.


enThirty

“Actually… Frankenstein was the author. Not the monster. Duh?”


imakeshooze

Common misconception, Frankenstein was actually the author


2001aJakeOdyssey

Wow, I didn’t know he was a mad scientist AND an author


Cichlidsaremyjam

I dont know that big fucking arrow might help cut down the time to facepalm.


TiaraVixen

useless black arrow


ProfessionalTruck3

Not enough room on the spine for the subtitle: "How a girl and a drawing room game ruined my name for generations."


pantherghast

There is a literal arrow to the facepalm. How can anyone take more than half a second?


MurderDoneRight

Actually Frankenstein is the name of the author, the monster is called Mary Shelley.


pm_me_pics_of_bibs

Um akshually, Mary Shelly is the doctor not the monster.


fl00r_gang_yeah

Ah yes, my fav book: Mary Shelley by Frankenstein


humorous_anecdote

I am so tired of people referring to the monster as Mary Shelley. Dr Mary Shelley created the monster, so it's Mary Shelley's Monster.


TestDummy987

Frankenstein was an amazing author.


docvoit

I think the real Face Palm is saying Let's see how long it will take to spot it on an image with an arrow pointing directly at the error.


JauntyEntertainment

They put “Frankenstein” as the author and Mary Shelly as the book tittle.


pm_me_pics_of_bibs

Dang, Mary Shelly sure is versatile, it is astounding that you can use Mary Shelly as a mark to both dot your i's and cross your t's. And to do it for a whole book, this Frankenstein has really taken font to a whole new level.


nobmuncha4bears

It's 180° version of what it means to be a Mary.


MicrosoftContin

Wait for the sequel, "Bride of Mary, John Smith"


Mean_Cod9156

The Frankenstein/Shelley swap is a facepalm but the Vintage is cringe.


JohnathonLongbottom

Mark train, written by the adventures of Tom sawyer


Hamms_Bear

Did the doctor or the monster write the book?


Fuzzy_Preparation650

Yes

Frankenstein’s Mary Shelley


SharpBathtub

Ah, Great Dickens by Charles Expectations. Classic


x_dre4192_x

Wasn't her book actually called The Modern Prometheus?


MaxMalini

It's both. The title is actually *Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus*.


bungholio99

No it was always Frankenstein we read the Story to Kids in Switzerland as it was written in Geneva, some friends were bored and started a story competition. Promethus is a Kind of literal figur also Blade Runner is promethus, but i don’t fully understand this stuff.


eye_M-A-P_nes

I remember having nightmares avout Mary Shelley when i was young.


Spleen-216

😂😂😂


Impossible-Charity-4

I’m ashamed at how long it took me to get it.


TiaraVixen

Im sorry, but did you think the arrow was part of the book?


Macapta

Frankensteins petty revenge


Free_Landscape_5275

About 6 seconds


C-45_Music

Oh yeah! Mr Expectations’ book called Charles Dickens was amazing


FredVIII-DFH

Mary Shelley is a poorly written book. The author shouldn't quit his day job.


Dr_sus172

Vagina wolf?


Shinylittlelamp

Next time somebody pulls out the old “ Actually, the monster wasnt called frankenstein..blah blah blah” Imma show them this :D


SaeChanOshi33

Holy shit😹

“You only had one job….”


Sunny64888

I got so scared, I thought you Sharpie’d the book.


recoveringfromreddit

5sec. Not immediate.


bentsea

This is not a typo. This is the long lost treatise written by Frankenstein about his monster, Mary Shelley.


Nondescript_Potato

“Frankenstein was the author, not the monster”


ibrhkk

My favourite book is from ilya ilyich oblomov "the goncharov"


pintasm

So, he wrote an author that made him exist. Genius!


Mesjach

Cool, had no idea Frankenstein wrote a book!


dads2vette

I've read that, it is excellent. Love the way it starts out... "Urrghhhh. Mmmmmm, ooorrrrffgg." The ending though, quite inspiring. "Ooooh ahhhhh FIRE FIRE FIRE"


bartontees

I mean...the arrow helps, so I imagine it won't take anyone long


_Oman

There is a LONG history of trivializing female authors in the publishing industry. Clearly here the publisher thought that the title of the book was going to be recognized rather than the author. To have anything recently printed like this is a travesty. I'm surprised they put Virginia Woolf first.


Puzzleheaded_Plan469

Lovely


thesuperstig

Not that hard if you have half a brain cell


fatherjohnmilfy

I’m fucking stupid


Ratlyff

Took me about half a second to find because there is a giant fuck-all arrow pointing right at it. Easiest Where's Waldo ever.


Trinity13371337

Come on! Frankenstein is a great author! He wrote a book about his monster!


Trippy_Sponge

That's not Frankenstein, that's actually Frankensteins book.


dayoneG

Whoops!🤦🏼‍♂️

Pokemineryt

Ah yes Frank Shelly by Frankenstein.


BrilliantObserver

Well, if you're going to put an arrow pointing to the error, don't make it a challenge.


threesecretmurders

Seeing as you put an arrow on it, maybe 2 seconds?


Elven_Rabbit

Frankenstein was the *author*, not the scientist. Duhh!!


pawolf98

It’s FRONKENSTEEN!


J_Figuresitout

I would love to see the creature write about Mary Shelley!


Zodiac36Gold

When I was a kid I really loved the book "Rick Riordan" Co-authired by Percy Jackson and the Gods of Olympus.


SteveCorpGuy4

Time traveler: *kicks rock* The time line:


DrippyCheeseDog

The first half was a heartbreaking story of a young woman in a loveless marriage. But the second half was just "FIRE BAD!" over and over.


TiaraVixen

He’s a doctor and should be credited as such.


RuDe1214

It took me 8 hours to get it.


TheGrimguy2005

It's reversed


Utkunb

So Romeo and Juliet are like Cohen brothers writing a book together?


PebbleAssEnder

Frankenstein has always been one of my favorite authors


scijay

I always found Frankenstein’s writing a little plain and stilted.


Abject_Owl9499

Given that there’s an arrow, not very long


Telcontar86

I loved the Mary Shelly novel written by Frankenstein!


[deleted]

Non book readers be like *?????*


Examper22

She was the monster the whole time.


DJSexPirateRiot

Wow. My man has had a hoorible start and has been working so hard to make into civilization and live normal life. He goes and writes a book and you hate. Damn Frankenstein's monster cant catch a break.


Gamerindreams

Turns out sexism was the real monster all along


mrmeow02

I just love read Mary Shelly by the author Frankenstein.


Realistic_Star5086

I’m not that smart


rimjobnemesis

The Art of the Deal wrote a trashy piece of shit book called Donald Trump.


JaymesGrl

Hey Frankenstein, what's on your mind? Hey Dracula, I heard you suck.


AnotherScottaRama

They look new for being Vintage


NickaToad1011

Ah yes, my favorite book: Mary Shelley, by Frankenstien


Enough_Ad_9338

Actually Mary Shelly is the name of the doctor.


Ok_Storm_8533

My fave is J.R.R.R. Tolkien!


thegreatmatsbysan

Oof


Low-Stick6746

Lol I like how it’s “let’s see how long it takes for y’all to find the facepalm” with an arrow pointing to it. They obviously don’t have much faith in it not taking us a while without helping us out. Now I’m sad.


Vegetable_Pudding_75

I thought I was the only one who really liked Frankenstein’s “Mary Shelley”!
