    " The book was interesting at some points but my attention was captivated during intense parts of the story. Like when it talked about a murder that just happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Graciela | 2/10/2014

    " This book was quite and enjoyment to me. From the beginning to the end it kept interested and entertained. Frankenstein's monster had my emotions all over the place. There were times when I felt sorry for him and times when I thought that he deserved to be alone. Victor on the other hand didn't get much pity from me. "

    " After reading Dracula, I was really interested to read the other classic monster books. Frankenstein is a novel about a scientist called Frankenstein who creates a monster. Victor becomes sick after creating the monster and has to be nursed back to health. Eventually, The Creature becomes afraid of the people that hate it and lives near a family and observes them. He learns to read and tries to become friends with the family. Throughout the novel The Creature murders Victor's loved ones. The Creature just wanted to be loved and accepted and because he couldn't find that, he killed. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read about monsters but has the time to sit down and really think about what is going on because it does get confusing. "

    " A fantastic book written by a very young woman at the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex Bonomo | 1/21/2014

    " I enjoyed the book. I think that Mary Shelley is a great author. I loved the theme of becoming a monster in this book. This type of book isn't usually my style, but I still enjoyed reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammi Doyle | 1/16/2014

    " Gawwwwd I need something light, brainless and not containing the worlds 'wretch' or 'ardour' to read now that I've completed Mary Shelley's most celebrated book. Girl, you were one dark 19 year old. I think you suffered a little teen angst while writing this. Such self-loathing cannot be imagined without some first- or second-hand experience. For this, I give you 4 sympathetic stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivian Mah | 1/12/2014

    " I am not a fan of classics. The language confuses me a lot. Read this for a English novel study. Didn't like Victor at all :/ so irresponsible, breaks promises, just a jerk in general. The monster was okay and a pretty great creature. The ending was really sudden, didn't expect that at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie Comfort | 12/31/2013

    " I never was able to get into this one. Maybe all of the many versions of this story & character since the original has spoiled it for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rj Roles | 12/25/2013

    " Beautifully written and truly a sad story... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Klaudia | 12/3/2013

    " I'm sorry but this book was so boring, and morbid and hard to understand. I did not like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elsabe | 11/30/2013

    " Loved to get the real story not the myth created by cartoons and bad movies! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexandra Amaya | 9/24/2013

    " It wasn't quite what I expected. I guess the only reference I have for this book is the movie version. But it does have a Pandora's box-like them to it. A scientist who is overzealous creates something but hasn't thought about what the repercussions might be until it's too late. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Talib Tirmizi | 6/20/2013

    " One of the saddest and darkest books I have ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose | 6/17/2013

    " This was an OK book...Victory annoyed me :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Robertson | 5/11/2013

    " This book was very different than I imagined. I'm glad I read it... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa | 2/28/2013

    " I sort of read this one. Not really. But sort of. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaimie-lee | 12/2/2012

    " I'm sure it was a good book. It was filled with many themes and ideas but I did it for English and as you should all know, English ruins all books, so I just couldn't enjoy it properly. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maike Bruls | 5/30/2012

    " I was really looking forward to reading this book for my literature class. however, I was extremely dissapointed with the story and I found the book actually quite irritating at times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sierra | 5/19/2012

    " Read it for my English class, I did not enjoy the book because of the missing gaps in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 2/20/2012

    " The story is not at all what I thought. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Schaffner | 2/18/2012

    " Read this for an online course. I couldn't get into it (too much overwrought emotion all the time). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andie B | 12/23/2011

    " I really liked the language of this book, and I found the story of the monster very intriguing and fascinating. I liked this book a lot more than I thought I would when I was assigned it in class. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 8/28/2011

    " One of my all-time favorite classics. Talks so much about responsibility for the things we create--ahem, children. I love this book! Actually, this book ranks in my top 5. How's that for an avid reader?-top 5! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kritika | 8/5/2011

    " The story explains how a dead man turns into a living monster as a result of a curious scientist's experiment n how his ghostly physical appearance stop people from getting his pain....A reader is made to experience a series of emotional ups n downs in d story........a worth reading Novel.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitchell Price | 8/3/2011

    " Had to read this book for year 12 English, it was actually pretty good. Will definitely read again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nupur | 7/24/2011

    " Liked the story, not the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexander | 5/23/2011

    " not bad.
    i do enjoy gothic fiction, the way they're written is facinating.
    but i still felt marginally detatched from the characters and story.
    but i watched the 94' movie with Helena Bonham Carter and i was all set :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devin | 5/22/2011

    " It was kind of a hard book to read (for me). Some parts were really slow and hard to understand. But it is really a classic that everyone should read. It shows the harshness and brutality of humans towards "different" things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/22/2011

    " I had to read this for an Open Uni course - it is very good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drucilla | 5/20/2011

    " Interesting to read the actual story of Frankenstein. It's always nice to read the original version of a story that has been done so many times. it gives you a fresh perpective on the new retellings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 5/20/2011

    " This is a beautifully written tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roman | 5/20/2011

    " interesting for scholars, reflecting the ills of the industrial society...
    not quite enjoyable as a book to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steven | 5/20/2011

    " I thought it was quite dry, the only times it became a page turner was when frankenstein was actually in the scene, and unfortunatly that was probably only an 1/8ish of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 5/19/2011

    " I enjoyed the philosophical themes in this book. Definitely a thoughtful book, not nearly the horror the movies all become. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alan | 5/18/2011

    " One of the worst written books in English but one of the great ideas in English literature. The handling of the creature within the narrative is particularly egregious. Read this as it is an important story in modern literature but also notice the nonsensical unfolding account of that creature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 5/18/2011

    " I read this book on a train bound for Scotland in 1995. It has a compelling moral: we create monsters by the way we treat or mistreat people. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 5/17/2011

    " interesting kind of dry but...okay I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 5/14/2011

    " A beautiful novel. It does feel as though it goes on a bit too long, but the imagery is captivating. "
