Eager science student Victor Frankenstein uses body parts of the dead to bring a creature to life. Although initially excited that his experiment is a success, Frankenstein becomes horrified at the grotesque being that stands before him and flees. Angered by the rejection, The Monster retaliates by taking the lives of those dearest to Frankenstein. The decision to play God torments both Frankenstein and The Monster he created until the end of their days.

    " Frankenstein is a great example of an emotionally real and relevant story - a very human kind of story- told within the trappings of what some might consider the great granddaddy of science fiction. "

    " I liked my second reading of Frankenstein way more than my first, and I can make more connections with book and its characters than I ever could before. There are so many similarities between Victor and the monster, as well Robert and Victor, and Robert and the monster. I more aptly appreciated the allusions Shelley made and can agree with my Shakespeare-loving English teacher that Shelley had to have read Macbeth because the undertones of it are very significant. I hope that as I read more classics and possibly re-read Frankenstein in the future, that I may pick up on even more subtle hints that Shelley drops throughout the book about both Victor and the monster. I did mark the four stars out of five because, while I loved it, there were many things a bit off in the writing and pacing of the book. It was greatly evidenced that Shelley was a bit of an inexperienced author but she had damn good storytelling and imaginative powers. "

    " Read it in my OAC English class as part of my ISU on the evolution of the horror genre. "

    " Considering I read it in high school and its been a few years since then, I think I'm do for another read through. But from what I remember it was an excellent book. I read it in science fiction class! We had a class for Sci-fi in my school! Anyway, when I read books it tends to be more for a philosophical and/or theological value, it is just the way my mind works, and so from what I remember of this book, and most of the books we read in that class, it offered a lot of perspective for me at the time.
