The title of the novel refers to a scientist, Victor Frankenstein, who learns how to create life and creates a being in the likeness of man, but larger than average and more powerful.
First time to read this classic. I cannot fathom her innate talent with the written word...
As I read this book, I found it to be both wonderful and terrible. The loss of life, the lessons learned, the changes of the heart... All combined into a beautiful, eloquent book. It is a very rare story that can draw tears from my eyes or engage my heart.
Well done, Mary Shelly!
A haunting gothic masterpiece
Perhaps one of the best horror novels I have ever read, and one of the best novels I have ever read at all. Amazing.
i dont even read but i love this book
very good. grabs you in makes you want to keep reading
Y’all are the best
Yea, I like Frankenstein, but the true gold is in these reviews. This is where I come to laugh. Cracks me up every time. Thank you, all you reviewers.
I really enjoyed reading it truly Great literature!

A book that will render your thoughts for years to come and transform your view of nature and her serenity.
Good if you like philosophical ideas that are dragged out into an entire mind numbing novel
If you like reading for 200+ pages about characters that all share the same, old fashioned English voice and that constantly feel the need to describe the majestic mountains of Jura for the fifteenth time in the book, despite being described only two chapters ago, this book is for you. Save yourself from this misery, for it is not the monster or Victor Frankenstein that is horrifying in this book; it is how much you'll want both of them to get shot in the head so that the book can end and you can continue your life again.
It was very vivid and I could feel everything the characters were feeling. It was great
