    " Honestly, one of the only books I've read that I truly despise. Yuck. "

    " An important book. Mary Shelley is methodical, but also swept up in the Sturm-und-Drang emotionality of the period. Her characters have motivations, psychological depth, passions. "

    " I love the fact that this is a book that was a book originally published roughly 200 years ago and it's message is still relevant today is why this is a must read for anyone. Shelley talks of how Doctor Frankenstein tries to play God and creates a monster in the process, science taken too far. This is an issue that is still relevant! "

    " One of the few books assigned for school that I could actually somewhat enjoy. Though boring at times, and a slight bit less horrifying than one would imagine a great horror story to be, it was still an enjoyable read. Hmm, maybe it was the time period that made it seem less scary than it should have been. After all, it's hard to be scared of something that sounds like a character out of Shakespeare. "
