Dr. Frankenstein has learned the secret of imparting life to inanimate matter. To test his theories, he collects bones from the charnel-houses to construct a “human” being, and then gives it life. The creature, endowed with supernatural size and strength, is revolting to look at and frightens all who see it. Lonely and miserable, it comes to hate its creator. The monster murders Frankenstein’s brother and his bride, and flees. The doctor pursues his creation in order to destroy it, but dies himself in the attempt. 

Frankenstein was first written as a ghost story to be told as part of a contest between Mary Shelley, her husband, and Lord Byron. This tale of terror has been a world favorite since it was first published in 1818 and has been made into countless movies.

    " The were many parts I really disliked about this book. There were a couple parts I did like though. The first half was good, but when the monster tells his story to Doctor Frankenstein, everything went downhill. The monsters story was WAY TOO LONG. After that meeting, most of the rest of the book is mere rambling of depressing thoughts with some overly descriptive parts of traveling thrown in. Plus, Mary Shelley turned a genius of a man into a clueless one with absolutely no common sense. I'm being generous to the first half of the book by giving it a two star rating. "

    " Oh, so many themes in this book! Lots of wretchedness too. It made me think about everything from which character deserved the most sympathy to adopting rescue animals. The whining did go on rather a long time, but I wasn't bothered by it. I liked the prose. And I liked finally reading the actual story. Modern mythology does the story much injustice! "

    " Just okay but it's so cool that this is the first sci-fi novel. "

    " Mind twisting in that it is not nearly the ghost story you would expect. Shows you the other side of the story. "
