    What a difference between the book and the Hollywood representation of the same book. I was taken aback by the eloquence of the monster. Equally so for the remorse expressed by him. I am really glad I chose to read this as it is so much more complete than film version.

    As an English major I read a lot. Basically, if it has words I'll read it. I had yet to read this piece and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was beautifully written and really have an output on how to go about life and the value of life. Definitely one to pick up and read for yourself!!

    At a time when there is current talk about science taking us to enhanced existences and 1,000 year long lives, it is important to heed the message of this ageless book. Though the language is old, the story is compelling and the language adds to a sense of other worldliness.

    I could not have been more surprised at the contents of this book...a complete and total diversion from the contemporary portrayal of the monster and its creator. Well written but challenging in its use of old English vocabulary and style. There is an underlying message throughout the story that shows itself from time to time. Got me thinking ... neglect and abuse can help create and grow an evil heart, a "monster" if you will ... How many evil hearts are helped along in their wickedness through the abuses of those who withhold love, acceptance and forgiveness?

    Once I got comfortable with the language, it was very good. Written so long ago made it more interesting to me. Very descriptive.
  • Glad I read this!

    I thought I knew this from the movies/pop culture, but apparently it's nothing at all what I was lead to believe. Mary Shelley's an excellent author, and this book was a great read. It can get a little long-winded, but it hits a rhythm that's pleasant enough after a while.

    I read this in my English class a few years back and it was the most painfu book I have ever read. All the students that have read it cringe every time a teacher mentiones Frankenstein now.
  • Great read
