At once a Gothic thriller, a passionate romance, and a cautionary tale about the dangers of science, Frankenstein tells the story of committed science student Victor Frankenstein. Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts but; upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature’s hideousness. Tormented by isolation and loneliness, the once-innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator, Frankenstein.

يُسلّط الكتاب الضوءَ على تجربة “السادس من نوفمبر” حينما أقدمت ٤٧ سيدة سعودية على قيادة السيارة في شوارع مدينة الرياض في عام ١٩٩٠م. ويُعد هذا الكتاب أوّلَ كتاب يتناول بالمعلومة والتحليل والوثيقة تلك التجربة ويوثق أحداثها. يكتسب الكتابُ أهميته بأن مؤلفتيْه كُنَّ من المشارِكات الفاعلات في تلك المسيرة، فجاء الكتاب ليوثق تفاصيل مهمة في تلك التجربة، قبل المسيرة وأثناءها وما تلاها من تداعيات وأحداث وصخب إعلامي، وهي تفاصيل ظلّت غائبة عن التناول لأكثر من عشرين عامًا.

صرت أعتقد أن فقداني للكتابة والوطن وأمي لم تكن إلا محاولات مني لفقد أشياء أخرى غيرك. أردت أن يجتمع الحزن على الحزن فيمتزج بعضها مع بعض حتى تندثر معالم حزنك الأول. ربما صدقني بعضهم وأنا أقول له هذا فيما بعد، وربما ظنني مجنوناً ذهب الحب بعقله، ولكني أؤمن أن الطعنة الواحدة أشد إيلاماً من الطعنتين، والجرح يكون أكثر وجعاً عندما تكون بقية الجسم سليمة، وأنا أردت أن أشتت أفكاري بين عدة أحزان حتى لا ينفرد بي حزن واحد، فيقتلني.
